Loftware Inc. has upgraded its browser-based, all-in-one enterprise labeling solution with the release of Loftware Spectrum 2.5.2. New features include new cab and PCL 5c drivers for color printing; enhanced live data in design; new label image output options, added language support for global deployments; and Linux printer support. PCL 5c offers multi-color printing to inkjet and office printers while the cab driver enables support for the cab XC series two-color thermal printers and the A+ series, The EOS series, and the Mach4 thermal printers.
Supporting cab printers allows customers in the chemical and related industries to address GHS regulations. This new capability enhances previously released character level formatting capabilities to use additional colors to call attention to allergens and warnings on food and beverage labels.
In addition to expanded color print capability, Spectrum 2.5.2 extends label design flexibility with enhanced live data in design capabilities. This allows users to position fields and judge spatial relationships between objects on a label to see exactly what they’re printing. This release also introduces a new image device driver, which allows users to output label formats and save the image for validation or to email label images to speed the review and approval process.
