Fujifilm has announced XMF Remote 9.5, a new version of its online print job submission and approval system.
   The most notable change is that the interface is now based on the HTML5 web platform. This change was made in response to potential security issues with the Java platform, leading some firms to restrict access to Java-based applications such as XMF Remote.
   “Shifting the client-facing side of XMF Remote 9.5 to the HTML5 web interface provides users with a modern, feature rich alternative that doesn’t suffer from security vulnerabilities,” said John Davies, business strategy manager workflow, Fujifilm Europe. “Java is still supported, but thanks to HTML5, even companies with strict IT policies can now benefit from an easy to implement and open interface.”
     The new system also boasts other improved features, said Fujifilm. Users can now upload multiple jobs concurrently, review magazines and publications with a high pagination using a fast scrolling mode, and sample colours from multiple areas of a job all at once. Along with a redesigned user interface, these changes are intended to speed up the approval process, with the solution now fully compatible with Mac, PC and iPad users, whether operating their equipment by mouse or finger.  Davies said: “By making use of the latest technologies for web applications we are allowing users to improve their operational efficiency, speeding up job hand-off, review, correction, and turnaround times.”
