POINTING THE WAY TO COLOR ACCURACY

The following features are included

ENHANCED 

PREVIEW TOOLS

Preview Before Outputting
Save time, material and consumables with our built-in preview feature. Users have the ability to preview individual separations or preview in full composite color before releasing jobs to their output devices.

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.

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%.

CONTROL STRIP

PDF VERIFICATION

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
