Home Products Software RIPs StudioRIP

A powerful Postscript Language Level 3 and PDF 1.6 pre-press RIP and Workflow solution capable of driving a wide range of film or polyester imagesetters, Computer to Plate (CtP) systems, DI Presses, colour laser devices and inkjet printers at a surprisingly low price. StudioRIP's features are unrivalled, they include built-in imposition, trapping, raster and contone proofing, ink duct control, high quality screening, client based control, powerful on-screen preview and more.

StudioRIP offers many workflow tasks (processing, trapping, imposition, proofing, ink duct control and imaging) integrated into one application and controlled from one interface – a comfort and simplicity that cannot be matched by workflows that integrate several applications from various vendors.

StudioRIP's new SGSS screening offers corner-to-corner consistent rosettes, 4096 shades, smooth vignettes, pattern free tints and stable highlights and shadows utilising it's customisable hybrid screening technology, as well as flexo optimized hybrid screening, second order stochastic (FM) screening. It's also fast! It has well written, MMX-optimized algorithms for most of the time-consuming processes such as interpretation, screening, trapping, imposition or TIFF compression, offering a speed that is matched by very few rips on the market.
