The Caldera driver, designed for the Oce Colorado 1640, is available for immediate download. The RIP will enable users to produce colour-faithful graphics with speed and efficiency.
The first UVgel wide format printer from Canon is ideally suited for the production of high volume, high quality roll-to-roll graphics up to 1.62m (64 inch) wide.
Combining the Colorado with Caldera’s established, world-respected RIP suite means that print shops can meet short turnaround times with excellent accuracy across a wide range of applications.
Canon’s UVgel technology ensures durable, high quality prints while conserving the ink’s versatility. The ink’s potential can be fully realised when coupled with V11.1’s powerful colour control. Users can achieve smooth gradients and benefit from extended spot colour handling with the Océ Colorado 1640, seamlessly integrated by the RIP’s creative ink customisation capabilities. Caldera’s ability to deliver accurate colour will ensure users reach the best possible quality from the machine and its new UVgel ink technology. Caldera’s ink economy options will also help print houses manage costs in a global landscape of rising prices for raw materials.
The latest versions of the Caldera V11.1 suite and its family, including GrandRIP+ and VisualRIP+, all contain features designed to optimise productivity and take advantage of the performance quality offered by the Canon range. ‘Caldera users can be confident that combining their existing V11 software with Canon’s new platform will ensure they are maximising their investment,’ said Arnaud Fabre, product manager for RIP Solutions, Caldera.
‘Canon customers looking for a reliable, powerful RIP can trust Caldera to be immediately compatible, fully featured and ready to use,’ added Eric Mendiharat, sales director for EMEA, Caldera. ‘In addition to our wide range of modules and features within the Caldera suite, a range of other resources are available for early adopters. These include a wide range of profiles, a technical overview, a quick-start guide and access to Caldera Desk, our new Online Knowledge Centre.’
