Agfa Graphics has released Fortuna 11, the latest update of its design and assembly software for high-security printing.
The company says it provides a way to skillfully safeguard counterfeit-sensitive documents, with this version focusing on enhanced user-friendliness, productivity and creative freedom. Andy Grant, global head of software at Agfa Graphics, says, “It’s the first step towards a completely revised user experience.”
Fortuna 11 takes a modular approach to high-security design and printing. Users can choose from different modules and features to assemble their product to match their needs. Creating specific designs to protect their sensitive documents – checks, lottery tickets, driver’s licenses, ID cards, tax stamps, passports, birth certificates, diplomas, breeder documents and so on, they can rely on a potent graphical base editor that reconciles aesthetics with security.
Fortuna 11 comes with two new functionalities that enhance interactivity and productivity. One of them, called Live Preview, enables users to view changes in their security designs in real time instead of checking it in a separate preview window. It works hand in hand with the new Smart Stepper functionality, which allows users to try out different settings and easily revert to previous ones.
Grant says, “Agfa Graphics is constantly exploring new paths to help customers stay a few steps ahead of counterfeiters. Fortuna 11 focuses on an improved user experience by enabling security designers to create high-security design details in complete symbiosis with all surrounding security elements. And we’ll continue adapting the software to increase design productivity. Also, Agfa Graphics plans to launch new software to further facilitate and automate the production process of qualitative high-security documents.
“This version is the first step toward an entirely revised user experience. And we will continue developing Fortuna’s user interface to meet ever-evolving needs.”
