CTP/CTF RIP FEATURES

Exceptional Halftone Screening
Every Xitron Navigator RIP includes Harlequin Precision Screening (HPS). When placing color separations on top of one another the RIP precisely calculates screen angles and frequencies to avoid moiré patterns. HPS also uses an adaptive screening technique that adjusts each halftone dot so that it is placed within one half pixel of its ideal location. The RIP allows users to control and manage resolutions (dots per inch or dpi), line screens/frequency (lines per inch or lpi), screen angles, dot shapes, scaling, crop marks, mirror image, negative/positive, rotation and much more. Our screening technology is also designed to work with a wide range of printing processes including Flexography, Offset Lithography, Screen Printing, Gravure, Engraving and Digital Printing.

PRECISION SCREENING

Precisely Calibrate Your Output
With the Xitron Navigator RIP you can calibrate your output devices using the built-in calibration manager. The RIP also includes color and monochrome calibration targets to help you perfectly linearize your output devices.

CALIBRATION MANAGER

Drag and Drop files into Spoolfolders
Do you have PDF, PS, EPS, XPS, or

TIFF files that are ready for processing? The Xitron Navigator RIP allows users to drag and drop supported file formats directly into a shared spoolfolder for processing.

The Fastest RIP Just Got

Even Faster
The Xitron Navigator RIP takes advantage of hyperthreading, multi-core and multiple CPU architectures for faster processing. The 64-bit architecture increases performance by allowing access to more RAM so that even the most complex jobs, rendered at the highest resolutions, can run at full speed.

64-BIT PROCESSING

Pantone Plus Support for Extremely Accurate Color
The Harlequin RIP will ensure optimum use of the output device's color gamut. Pantone Plus support also ensures that emulation of Pantone colors printed using other inks (e.g. CMYK) are as accurate as possible. It is now even easier to achieve consistent, predictable and repeatable color reproduction across any number of devices through tight integration of the RIP with third party closed loop color controls.

ACCURATE COLOR

Font Manager with

Font Emulation
Extended font support includes PostScript Type 0 (composite),

Type 1, Type 3,Type 4 and fonts, as well as native processing of Type 32 and Type 42 True Type fonts. Ever had a rush job that was missing fonts? The RIP also includes a feature that when enabled will make a typographically acceptable match to missing fonts with no text overflow.

EXTENDED

FONT SUPPORT

Highlight Areas Done Right
Users now have the ability to specify

a minimum dot which eliminates the harsh edges often seen in highlight areas. This feature will give you great looking highlight areas and allow

you to print highlights and perfectly smooth vignettes from

0 through 100%.

DOT CONTROL

CertifiedPDF Processing
When enabled the control strip feature will verify that proofs and prints made from files transmitted as PDF/X have rendered correctly.

PDF VERIFICATION

Print Directly to the RIP
Users can quickly create shared printers at the RIP which can then be accessed from other Windows or Macintosh systems on the network. The RIP software also includes the latest Xitron Postscript Printer Description (PPD) for loading on to design stations or the RIP. This universal printer description is designed to work with all of our supported output devices.

NETWORK ACCESSIBLE

SHARED PRINTERS

Supports Multiple File Formats
Process a variety of file formats directly including PDF, PS, EPS, XPS, TIFF and more. Natively process the latest PDF and PostScript® Level 3 data with full compatibility from the latest design and printing applications.
