Introducing EFI Colorproof XF Satellite

EFI now offers a new configuration for customers working across multiple locations who have the sole and specific need to process, print and verify RPF (remote printing file) formats or "remote containers." Specifically designed for the task of remote proofing, with XF Satellite RPF are files that are sent to the remote proof job recipient to produce real remote proofs. XF Satellite packages installed in remote locations provide full flexibility in processing RPF files, and are dedicated to that function.

Pantone Goe System Support

EFI supports the new Pantone Goe System across its product line, in addition to EFI's already comprehensive support of Pantone Libraries. The direct path to Pantone from Colorproof XF delivers increased accuracy and flexibility across a wide range of print media. By incorporating the Pantone Color definitions into EFI Colorproof XF, EFI has enabled print service providers and graphic arts professionals to simply process print jobs containing Pantone Color separations and automatically produce a color-accurate output of the complete print job. Colorproof XF customers are more efficient and accurate, saving time by eliminating manual input of color definitions, and reducing inaccuracies in the final output.


EFI Colorproof XF including Service Pack 4 is available today from certified EFI dealers and distributors worldwide. Service Pack 4 is immediately available free of charge to current Colorproof XF v3.1 customers via Online Updater.
