The new AI-driven job ticketing feature analyzes jobs and automatically prepares job tickets, covering media selection, prepress processes, finishing, and more.

“We are continuously exploring how AI technology can make Fiery workflows as easy as interacting with a virtual assistant. At drupa, we are excited to demonstrate AI’s ability to define print settings based on file content and propose tasks prior to ticket creation. Leveraging AI in the job ticketing process helps boost productivity, enabling operators of all skill levels to quickly process a variety of print jobs.” added Weiss.
