Roland Announces PrintStudio By Caldera


Roland PrintStudio by Caldera comes with numerous features designed for improved productivity, versatility and support. Designed to help Mac users get the most out of their Roland printers, the RIP and print management software offers a host of tools and resources, making it perfect for busy print environments.

With its Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE 4) and advanced ICC profiling tools, Roland PrintStudio ensures high-end output. Innovative automation and template-driven tiling options reduce design and processing time for streamlined workflows, while optimised contour nesting minimises media waste.

Ready for the latest Mac OS, armed with Adobe’s latest print engine, and available in multiple languages, Roland PrintStudio expedites image processing and improves organisation for wide format operations of all sizes. Newly enhanced colour control, improved file preparation, and fast RIP speeds enable users to deliver on spec, on time, every time.

According to Valery de March, OEM business director at Caldera, PrintStudio offers Roland users both greater performance and increased convenience. ‘They’ll be able to take advantage of extensive colour management features, create an unlimited number of presets, and use automated functionalities and hot folders as well as advanced tiling and nesting tools,’ he said.

Multiple Roland PrintStudio features allow for enhanced colour accuracy, including hundreds of spot colours within the Roland Colour and Metallic System Libraries and support for RAL, HKS and Pantone colour swatches. Users have the option of accessing a library of media profiles at the online Roland Profile Center, or creating their own ICC profiles. The software also provides support for low-cost colour spectrophotometers.

PrintStudio works hand-in-hand with Roland’s cutting-edge printers to deliver customer-pleasing graphic results. Advanced features for special colour generation have been introduced to ensure perfect pixel-to-pixel registration. Users can also create personalised output templates, making it easy to produce printed items that match the specific needs of their customers.

‘We collaborated with Caldera to develop a state-of-the-art software release that’s designed to support businesses from start to finish,’ noted Julie Gederos, Roland DGA’s product manager, cutters and digital platforms. ‘It offers a wealth of tools and features that enable users to maximise speed, accuracy and efficiency throughout the entire RIP process.’

Additional Roland PrintStudio tools include a new blur and bleed function that removes the risk of white lines at cutting edges, plus a handy feature that expedites the post-production process by making it easy for users to add custom grommet marks to their artwork. An Application Guide tool further streamlines finishing by automatically assigning a number to each tile while generating a summary PDF to assist installers with large-scale graphics.
