Prinergy 9 release status

So Prinergy 9 is nearing the end of the beta with a scheduled release date in February. The date could move if any last minute issues are discovered.

Prinergy Workshop 9, VPS+, ColorFlow 9, Pandora 8.4, PLA 8.4, offer support for Mac OS 10.15 Catalina and Big Sur OS 11. Preps 9 will initially only support with Mac 10.15 with support coming in 1st quarter for Mac OS 11.

Preps 9 is brand new version from the ground up built on 64-bit technology. Preps 9 will be the fastest imposition solution Kodak has ever produced.

VPS+ is a brand new replacement QA tool for the legacy VPS software. VPS+ offers so many new features and improvements never found before. VPS and TAP have been merged together to offer a state of the art 64-bit QA offering.

Version 9 uses the latest Adobe APPE 5 rendering technology for the fast rendering times ever in Prinergy. We worked with Adobe to create new rendering technology that no other workflow can offer. A must see!

We have seen complex 9 color, 64" packaging jobs go from 120 minutes in Prinergy 8.4 go to 4 minutes in Prinergy 9. Another Flexo wide web job went from 13 hours to 4 minutes!!!! Every job is different and results will be different based on hardware and files.

In Prinergy version 9 we now offer new Kodak Managed services offerings to make the most of your Prinergy system. Prinergy Analytics offerings replace the legacy Dashboard product and offer new job, page, imposition, separation, user, and system information never seen before. Reach out to your Kodak Sales rep. for more information or a demo or contact me below.

  • IPP: New password required when login first time

    Due to security reason Kodak changed the behavior of prompting users who login for the first time to enter a new password.
    The start page changes with the addition "change password", but most of the user do not recognize this and so they fail to login!
    I'm fine with the new security requirements, but the way user get the invitation to create a new password is not very clear!
    User should be able to login to IPP and then there should be a new page/popup window to define a new password.

    I concur. I raised a similar request with Kodak

    When user is asked to set new password at login page, only a text string appears and in many cases missed by user. We experience a high volume of calls from customers requiring assistance just to get new password set. This process in our opinion is poor user experience (UX). We believe a pop up would be more appropriate. The popup should also not ask the user to enter their username and password for a second time.

      Bump. We get a ton of calls regarding logins. We have it spelled out exactly what users should do and no one reads it. The new user login should be easier.

        I'd like to add my frustration to the InSite password process; and it certainly is a process. As our companies Administrator for this product I am overwhelmed by internal and external user frustration. The average user does not have the patience to sort through the over-challenging steps; which we have determined to be approximately 9 steps. We've also come to find out that during the step with which a temporary 10 character password is sent that if the user copies and pastes the 10 character password there is a chance that a hidden character may be included at the end yielding this step ineffective. Even if a user gets that far I could go on about the barely noticeable "Change Password" type selection or the fact that the field "Your Current Password" within the [B]Change Password[/B] pop-up window contains the users original password and that they need to reapply the temporary 10 character password (Really?) I'm all for security but not at the extent of losing customers. Keep is simple!

          Upcoming InSIte Prepress Portal 9.2 (scheduled for Q1, 2021) will mitigate the steps involved in resetting the password.

            New users we create have an initial password: Pleasechange!
            Seems to get their attention long enough for them to create their own password. Unfortunately, our security requires 12 characters so they have more fun than they deserve.
