Web Price £1,995.00 (£2,394.00 inc VAT)

Compact version of Dynastrip for impositions up to B2 (760x760 mm max. output)

DynaStrip is the new industry standard in imposition. Print professionals worldwide rely on DynaStrip for its superior imposition capabilities and unparalleled flexibility.

DynaStrip operates on Macintosh and Windows platforms, and accepts PDF, PostScript, EPS and DCS files from over 100 applications. It can output to any printer, digital imaging device, imagesetter or platesetter. DynaStrip also enables populated or non populated imposition, and outputs in both PJTF and JDF.

Its powerful object-oriented architecture allows you to fully customize and control your imposition layout. Create and save basic templates, and modify them on the fly for custom jobs, keeping template creation and management to a minimum. Ganging of jobs provides an easy means to maximize your press sheet and reduce waste by combining different jobs on the same sheet. You can even ensure imposition integrity with the help of DynaStrip's Raster Mode (TIFF preview) and direct-layout PDF.

Easy to set up within your existing prepress infrastructure and easy to learn, DynaStrip ensures that your prepress team is up and creating its imposition jobs in no time.


OS X Compatibility

DynaStrip allows users to seamlessly operate in OS X & OS 9. This compatibility lets you take advantage of OS X's multitasking capabilities, with superior stability and management of application memory.

JDF Support

DynaStrip creates more flexible JDF imposition templates which can be used repeatedly with various JDF workflow systems. Furthermore, JDF output mode supports any type of job ganging: multiple pagination sequences, multiple document lists, as well as step & repeat signatures.

New Multi-Web and Partial Web Pagination

DynaStrip now automatically paginates custom saddle-stitched jobs with any number of web and partial webs. All partial web configurations (half-webs, quarter-webs, etc.) are supported in any number, at any sheet rank, and with any web position (gear side, operator side, et al.). This new algorithm also eases the pagination of multi-web templates. Pre-paginated booklets can then be stacked and page numbers incremented for the job. These comprehensive pagination options allow you to generate the perfect result when working in a multiple-web environment such as newspapers printing.

New JDF Transmission via HTTP Protocol at JDF Output

In addition to hot folders for communicating JDF data, DynaStrip now features job file transmission via the HTTP protocol. A JDF file packaged in a MIME message is sent to an HTTP server during output. The status of the HTTP transfer received from the server is displayed on-screen and the details of the transmission are stored in a log file. This HTTP output functionality can be used in a local network environment, a wide-area network (WAN), or across the internet.

New Automatic Color Match

Designed to automate the use of imported marks, the Automatic Color Matching preference allows DynaStrip to match the spot colours found in the imported mark (colour bar, etc.) to the 5th or 6th colours of the job. The match can be viewed and overridden at any time in the colour table. The Automatic Color Match is especially useful when used with the Job Ticket Flow tool because the same imported mark is regenerated at every new job output.

User-friendly Interface

DynaStrip is more user-friendly than ever before. It boasts a simple yet sophisticated look and feel - unlike any other imposition software. Its wide range of easy-to-use tools and wizard-like interface will greatly reduce your learning curve and get you up-to-speed in no time.

Object-oriented Architecture

DynaStrip's powerful object-oriented architecture gives you full control over any object on the sheet. Add bleed, modify gutters, place text tags, move colour bars, position cutting marks or insert objects in an adjustable bounding box. The only limit to layout customization is your imagination.

Direct-layout PDF

Imposed PDFs can be directly displayed in DynaStrip's design window. True imposed source files, not thumbnails, are shown, allowing users to zoom page content at maximum resolution.

Multiple Sheet Templates

Users are no longer limited to single sheet templates. They can save a template with any number of selected sheets and load them as signatures or job sections for faster job creation.

Populated PJTF (Windows 4.0 +)

Job ticket imposition plans can now be populated with source files. Simply index PDF files in the Document List & Imposition Index dialog and output in PJTF mode as usual.

PJTF Support

DynaStrip's PJTF output mode supports any type of job ganging: multiple pagination sequences, multiple document lists, as well as step & repeat signatures.

Ganging of Jobs

DynaStrip maximizes your press sheet by placing different jobs on the same sheet. Combine posters and flyers or two signatures with totally different bindings—there is virtually no limitation to the page size or number of pages on the sheet.

Input Flexibility

DynaStrip accepts incoming files, such as PDF, PostScript, EPS or DCS, from more than 100 applications.

Plate Setups for CTP

DynaStrip outputs to any printer, digital imaging device, imagesetter or platesetter. Up to 10 different simultaneous setups can be created to combine any plate with any output device.

Impose Trapped PDFs

DynaStrip ability to impose trapped PDFs regardless of whether the trapping information is embedded in the pages or on annotation layers makes DynaStrip the only PDF imposition solution that makes full use of Adobe®Extreme® PDF Trapper technology.

Raster Mode (TIFF Preview)

Many pre-RIPing workflow solutions generate low-resolution files for individual RIPed pages. When these files are created with a preview image, DynaStrip can display them directly in the layout. The Raster Mode (Tiff Preview) is also offered with LZW de-compression.
