ProImage announced several upgrades and installations of its latest generation of NewsWayX around the country. The app allows publishers to manage production workflow from a variety of front-end systems through output.

Among the publishers to launch NewsWayX:

The LasVegas Review-Journal is replacing a Print Express workflow solution with NewsWayX to streamline production flow to the publisher’s new Agfa Advantage CTP devices. The software will allow operators to create edition plans or use templates to track production, ProImage said.The publisher is also adding ProImage’s OnColor Eco to optimize PDF pages with reduced color ink usage.

The Buffalo News upgraded its workflow with NewsWayX as well as its Intellitune/OnColor software for color-correcting and toning images, and OptiInk/Eco for ink optimization.

Lee Enterprises is upgrading its centralized workflow to NewsWayX to manage production across more than 25 print sites. Planning files are imported from Layout 8000 to automatically build editions, and two separate workflow hubs share the workflow load for redundancy. Centralized RIP farms are being upgraded to the latest versions and will be load balanced for efficient throughput. Paired pages are approved by a centralized prepress team before plate-ready TIFFs are sent to the designated print site(s) for output to local CTP devices.

Tribune, NYT move from Arkitex to NewsWay

Tribune Publishing in Chicago is moving its Arkitex workflow to News-WayX.The platform will be configured in a centralized environment to provide automated workflow for sixTribune production sites. Each will have its own remote workflow for viewing and approving individual publications. Centralized RIPs will receive PDFs and send plate-ready TIFFs to local CTP devices while color locking separations and load balancing across various CTP lines. Ink presets will be sent to various press control systems and ProImage OnColor ECO ink optimization software will reduce ink costs for each print site, ProImage says.

The New York Times is also shifting the Arkitex workflow at its College Point plant to NewsWayX. The new setup will simplify edition planning and manage additional commercial work as well as local publications. Imported plans from Courier and the publisher’s Goss OmniX press control system will automatically generate edition plans. NewsWayX will then burn plate information onto the plates as part of the barcode along with all furniture marks for output to five CTP lines.

NYT’s NewsWayX Dashboard will give a snapshot of the status of all publications and editions that are being currently produced.

The new version will provide an improved user interface and production-tracking screens, ProImage said. King-sport is already using ProImage's Eco SaaS ink optimization software, which will now be integrated into the workflow. The upgraded Harlequin RIPs and NewsWay software will run on new servers for faster throughput to Agfa CTP devices.
