Enhanced feedback also allows for smoother transactions when either PlateMaker or Prepress is unavailable. Both the sender system and the receiver system poll for connectivity status. If There’s been in interruption in the connection, one system simply waits until it receives notification from the other that all is well and processing picks up where it left off. There is no need to restart task processors, or reboot both systems when an unforeseen problem arises.

Why is this Important?

Not only is the feedback of job status improved, the PlateMaker system remains in contant communication with the Prepress system enabling quick recovery when either system is offline.
