Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory 1.5.54, a feature update to its solution to automate printing, exporting, preflighting and file delivery from Adobe InDesign. Output Factory lets printers, ad agencies and publishing houses worldwide automate and simplify their output workflow and easily repurpose InDesign files for the web and mobile devices.

“When every second counts Output Factory is a life saver!” says Glen Saville of eponymous design studio in Hornchurch, UK. “It’s a sublime beast that saves a lot of time. I just drag my files into the job list, set them up as I want and then sit back and watch the computer do its stuff.”

The new version improves the script label feature which gives users an easy way to insert text from specific frames in InDesign document directly into variable output file names. The new update adds an option to ignore script labels on hidden layers thus allowing users to assign identical labels across multiple layers in InDesign. This feature is especially useful for automated output of multi-lingual documents as well as the projects that contain separate versions for different distribution zones.

With Output Factory users only need to select InDesign files, adjust workflow settings, and the software will do the rest automatically. Built-in preflighting ensures that no output errors will be left unnoticed. The program supports all popular output formats and offers the following key features:

Batch output of InDesign files
-Supports print, PDF, PostScript, EPS, TIFF, HTML and other formats
-Export as single pages
-Layer versioning
-Output to several formats at once
-Variable output file names
-Automatic preflight

Fulham ThoroLED AC LED Retrofit Kits Receive ENERGY STAR® Certification

New ENERGY STAR Certification Simplifies Testing Process and Reduces Costs for Luminaire Makers Using Fulham’s AC Direct Drive LED Light Engines.

Fulham Logo

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc. (http://www.fulham.com), a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced that three models of its AC-powered ThoroLED LED Retrofit Kits have been tested and certified as ENERGY STAR® Luminaire 2.0 compliant.

The three non-dimming AC LED retrofit kits are designed for ceiling and wall luminaires and are available in three power levels: 10W (model TJT120010AC), 15W (model TJT120015AC) and 25W (model TJT120025AC). The AC units are ideally suited to replace the original lamps in wall sconces and common ceiling lights for field installation or as factory retrofits, and they offer at least twice the lumens per watt as fluorescent lamps. The three units also are cULus classified and because they are ENERGY STAR certified, are eligible for a number of energy rebate programs.

ENERGY STAR certification assures luminaire manufacturers that components have already been tested for photometric life and electric performance by an EPA-recognized laboratory. Using ENERGY STAR certified products reduces both testing costs and time required for certification of new luminaires. It also ensures that new luminaires will be eligible for ENERGY STAR rebates for installers where available. Fulham anticipates receiving similar certification for additional retrofit kits in the near future.

“We are seeing an increasing demand for LED retrofit kits as more building designers and managers seek out better quality lighting solutions that save them money,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “Retrofitting existing luminaires to LEDs not only saves on power, but also on maintenance since LEDs last more than 10 times longer than fluorescents. Having ENERGY STAR certification for our retrofit kits gives our customers assurance that they can deliver energy-saving lighting without compromising on the quality of light or the light fixture.”

Fulham’s ThoroLED Retrofit Kits are field installable and designed to simplify conversion of existing light luminaires to long-lasting, energy-efficient LED luminaires that deliver twice the lumens of fluorescent lights with more even lighting for fewer shadows. Using LED technology provides better quality light in a long-lasting package that eliminates the need for bulb replacement. And the ThoroLED Retrofit Kits are field installable in minutes, easily replacing existing light luminaires, and they include thermal management and heat dissipation to extend the operational life of the LEDs.

Roxanne Fawcett is Gallery’s New Featured Artist

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that abstract artist Roxanne Fawcett has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist.

Light Space & Time Logo

Jupiter, FL, USA — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that abstract artist Roxanne Fawcett has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist.

Roxanne Fawcett - Artist Showcase

Roxanne’s artistic journey started out with a generous and patient family, some crazy days at UC Berkeley and a wonderful West Coast life.

If asked where her art comes from, she would say it comes from a lot of creative genetics, a smattering of really good teachers, a couple of interesting encounters with the judicial system, a healthy fear of quicksand and a natural avoidance of the traditional career path.

In describing her art Roxanne would probably use such words as ‘colorful’, ‘textured’, ‘graphic’, ‘interpretive’, possibly ‘transitional’ or ‘natural’. She tends to work in series…acrylic on canvas or paper, mixed media occasionally, messy and loose. You can find more of Roxanne’s art at http://www.rgfawcettdesign.com.
