GlobalVision, a world leader in the development of innovative proofreading technologies, announced that it will be demonstrating for the first time at drupa 2016 the integration of its Quality Control Platform into Esko’s Automation Engine 16.

Embedding GlobalVision’s Quality Control Platform within Esko’s Automation Engine provides an all-in-one quality assurance solution that runs as a background process and results in an annotated and viewable design file within Automation Engine. This further enables rapid and systematic review of all detected packaging and labeling errors throughout the workflow, from upstream design to print.

“Being able to process more jobs efficiently, while reducing the inherent risk of errors is critically important for our customers,” explains Geert De Proost, director, software engines at Esko. “By integrating GlobalVision’s Quality Control Platform into Automation Engine, we address the growing complexity of artwork quality assurance within a single solution that connects to other Esko applications in Esko Software Platform 16. This enables everyone from graphic and print suppliers to Brand Owners to have access to automated quality control tools".

Automation Engine is Esko’s workflow server. It automates prepress tasks, which speeds up the process, but also reduces the error rate and the need for operator intervention. Automation Engine is an intelligent system that takes prepress production to a new level by integrating with business systems as well as web front ends.

“Today’s label and packaging production are complex and ever-changing, making it extremely challenging for companies to balance tight deadlines and quality,“ says Jonathan Hou, director of technology at GlobalVision. “The partnership and integration between Esko and GlobalVision combine two best of class technologies to deliver the industry's first fully automated solution to ensure the accuracy of the text, spelling, graphics, barcodes and Braille from initial designs to the final print.”
