At the heart of FirstPROOF is an extremely high performance viewing engine that is capable of viewing high resolution data from Harlequin, Esko Flex (LEN), Presstek DI or any TIFF RIP. This allows the user to rapidly zoom in and out, pan and rotate the view in real time so as to see exactly what has been RIPped in the job. Any mistakes or problems in the job are therefore easily detected, allowing the user to guarantee that what they print will be right first time.
Jobs that have been viewed can either be temporarily marked as approved or rejected, or permanently output or deleted. Prior to that, annotation notes can be attached to each job.
