Harlequin RIP Features

OVER 30 DOT SHAPES

PRECISION SCREENING

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.

SIMPLE

PAGE POSITIONING

Position and Placement Tools
Provides an easy method to position jobs on almost any output device.

MINIMUM 

DOT CONTROL

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%.

NETWORK ACCESSIBLE 

SHARED SPOOLFOLDERS

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.

CONTROL STRIP

PDFVERIFICATION

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

HARLEQUIN

RIP OPTIONS

Wide Variety of Options
Increase productivity and enhance quality by customizing your RIP with a variety of options including Trapping, Hybrid Screening and more.

STOCHASTIC SCREENING

FOR INKJETS

Stochastic Screening for Inkjets
All of our Epson Film RIP include Stochastic Screening. With this

option users can output using our FM/Stochastic screen sets, and now you can also output using a newly developed Stochastic Yellow feature. This feature allows users to output Cyan, Magenta, and Black along

with any spot colors using Harlequin's conventional AM screen sets while applying a stochastic screen to

the Yellow.

EXTENDED

FONT SUPPORT

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.

INK CHANNEL CONTROLS

Take Control of Your Ink
Our built-in inkjet ink channel manager gives users the ability to control what ink channels are utilized on output. Users can output films using an individual ink channel or enable multiple ink channels depending on what is needed.

CALIBRATION 

MANAGER

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.

SIMPLE

USER INTERFACE

Simplified Job Control
The Harlequin RIP was designed with the end user in mind. The main RIP monitor window gives users access to peXitronnent job information while the newly redesigned output controller window allows users to manage jobs and control output.

ACCURATE

COLOR

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.

INK

DENSITY CONTROL

Great Density with Support for Standard Epson Inks or UV Blocking Inks
The Xitron Navigator RIP allows you to control how much ink is being placed down on output. Users can achieve densities of 4.0 or higher.

NETWORK ACCESSIBLE 

SHARED PRINTERS

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.

DIRECT 

FILE PROCESSING

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.

COLOR

MANAGEMENT

Advanced Color Management
ColorPro™ provides excellent color process control, giving accurate, consistent and predictable color reproduction for a wide range of workflows. ColorPro™ provides full support for industry standard ICC profiles (including device link profiles) avoiding dependence on the generic, system level color management of the computer’s operating system.
