Caldera has released RIP V10.1; the newly updated VariableDisplay digital signage package, as well as Flow+, which connects a constellation of software to create the unified, automated workflow businesses need to travel at warp speed.
Caldera has incorporated the newest upgrade of the Adobe PDF Print Engine in its latest version. V10.1’s inclusion of APPE3.7 will teleport print houses’ production capabilities into a new landscape of efficiency and automation. It features 64-bit implementation for improved PDF compliance and astronomical performance with transparencies and colour rendering. Additionally, Caldera has broken the barrier of 1000 different printer drivers, making it one of the most diverse RIP options on the market today.
Other intrepid additions to the V10.1 control suite include algorithmic enhancement for processing raster graphics and spot colours. Those using advanced computing solutions, such as Caldera’s dedicated C4 hardware platform, can expect RIP speeds for files with these elements to improve by more than four times.
Additional support is also in place for the Kala XY cutter range, as well as better handling of print-to-cut output. New markers can be placed between images for flat-bed cutting, interacting with Caldera’s existing Compose, Nest-O-Matik and Step&Repeat tools and allowing print houses to reduce waste from cut jobs significantly.
The new Caldera RIP V10.1 was showcased at FESPA 2015 (18-22 May, Cologne).
