    efi ws fiery

    colorproof xf and fiery xf are sw rips.
    Fiery is hw rip and CWS is client interface to hw fiery rip.

    fiery hw rip is usually connected to digital printing press and color/bw copiers
    xerox 7500 is supported with colorproof xf/Fiery xf

    Fiery is more expensive than xerox 7500 and as i know there is no hw rip for 7500

    Ok i understand you very good but i think that FIERY HW is only a COMPUTER with a SOFTWARE.

    I don´t know the diferente between Fiery XF and Fiery HW. I know that XF support 7500 because i use but i want a RIP that have spool for so in future i need repeat a work.

    I am waiting your answer or other answer. Thanks a lot for info and help.

    fiery xf and colorproof xf are the same products. difference is in name and licence options, when your're buying it from efi. Fiery xf has more large format printers outputs, full color manager and spot color tool. There are the same output options for xerox but i'm not sure if yours is on the list. if not then hou can use file output option and use it only for color management and then cm as an output only.
    this fiery name always make people confused :) because original efi fiery is a laser printer output driver usually with dome piece of hardware to run outputs and managed by command workstation.

    Am I right, that you cant use the Command Work Station 5.3 if you dont have Fiery Hardware. No workaround available. I tried to install it, but it always ask for a login and pass on startup, and I assume thats the login and pass, from your Fiery Hardware.

    as i remember login for cm is Fiery.1 password is the same. it should run as server / client app but something like pif hw card is needed. its related to your printer if its controlled by hardware card (like canon ipf series)

    Hi
    Command workstation work only with and hardware RIP .
    The Fiery RIP work with software and daughterboard with an EPROM containing the software lisences.
    Colorproof Xf is just a RIP software and he is not compatible with Cws5.
    I think it is easy to manage color with efi RIP you just have to use the sale setting with Xf and Fiery.

    Indeed, Fiery.1 is the default administrator password. Dongle is needed for the CWS though.

    You DON'T need dongle to run CWS. Dongle only for Fiery options, such as impose and compose..

    CWS is a remote application to a Fiery server thats all. You still able to install CWS to any computer, but serve nothing if you don't have the fiery server. In order to make it works you need to add a Fiery server to the CWS

    True, sorry. CWS isn't as useful without the options though.
