Built-in Preflight Profiles
Enfocus Pitstop Preflighting stops uncertified PDFs from ever getting to the pressroom floor. Now you can catch uncertified PDFs before even a single plate or image is output.
The purpose of the Enfocus certified status check is to determine if incoming PDF documents contain an Enfocus certificate. This certificate determines if it has previously passed (or failed) a preflight check using the same profile, prior to reaching the RIP.
If a PDF document passes the check, the RIP monitor reports: StatusCheck: document '<path/name>' certified
If a document fails the check, the RIP monitor reports: StatusCheck: document '<path/name>' not certified
You can also check a box that will allow the RIP to 'Abort the job if the status check fails' thus preventing an uncertified PDF from printing. This check allows you to ensure the validity of the incoming jobs and as such be sure the files are passed successfully through the RIP and workflow.
Also included with every RIP is an overprint control strip for checking that proofs and prints made from files transmitted as PDF/X have rendered correctly. When the job is later converted to one of the PDF/X conformance levels and then proofed or printed, the strip will show whether or not the rendering process in that proofing or pre-press system has been configured in conformance to the PDF/X standards.
The following Enfocus PitStop 4.0 lib/v7 preflight profiles are included with the RTI Harlequin RIP: B&W v3.0, B&W + Spot v3.0, CMYK v3.0, CMYK + 1 Spot v3.0, Generic Office v3.0, Generic Press v3.0, PDF to Web v3.0, PDF/X-1a:2001 v5.0, PDF/X-1a:2001 v5.0 Verify, PDFX-3:2002 v5.0, PDF/X-3:2002 v5.0 Verify, and Soft Proof v3.0, and some new 2003 PDF/X profiles (PDF/X-1a:2003 v5.0, PDF/X-1a:2003 v5.0 Verify, PDF/X-3:2003 v5.0, PDF/X-3:2003 v5.0 Verify).
