EFI Fiery VUE: Re-inventing the Print Driver?

This Tuesday, EFI announced the release of its latest software creation, called Fiery VUE. Fiery VUE is geared toward the office environment, delivered as an add-on to the Microsoft Office Suite. Its main purpose is to make the composition, printing, and finishing of office documents more user-friendly, specifically to business users that own MFPs with Fiery controllers. Users install the add-on, open a document, find the tab for Fiery VUE on any Microsoft Office application “ribbon”, and then load the VUE application where users have access to a number of features. Within Fiery VUE, users can view a 3D preview of how the finished document, re-arrange pages, insert blank pages, insert additional documents of multiple file types, choose various types of finishing options, use various imposition settings, and save templates for re-use. All of these features are under the guise of an interface design that provides an easy-to-use experience when preparing and printing documents.

EFI’s main goal, it seems, is to add value for MFP owners that have a Fiery controller or front-end, and help users utilize the full range of features available in their MFP devices. It is also aiming to get users to switch from using their print drivers for preparing and sending jobs to a printer to using VUE. According to Fiery VUE’s website, MFPs from Canon, Konica Minolta, Ricoh, Toshiba, and Xerox can currently support connectivity to Fiery VUE, which is available for free download on that same website.
