Roland DG Releases Latest Software Version For Inkjet Printers


Included with Roland DG’s inkjet printers and printer/cutters, VersaWorks 6 RIP and Print Management Software is designed to maximise the characteristics of printer, ink and media to enable high-quality printing and improved efficiency for print production.

The latest version includes important new features, such as a ‘Job Assistant’ function that allows customers to automatically add graphic contour cut lines in VersaWorks 6 without returning to the design software.

The new ‘True Rich Colour’ print setting takes full advantage of the colour reproduction capabilities of both printer and ink to create stunning graphics with vibrant colour combined with neutral greys, smooth gradations, and natural skin tones. In addition, VersaWorks 6 is equipped with several new functions that improve the quality and efficiency of output operations, including compatibility with Barbieri’s latest spectrophotometer tools for colour management.

Kevin Shigenoya, Vice President, Digital Printing Business Division, said, ‘By providing our users with the latest version of VersaWorks 6, we believe that we can strongly support our customers’ printing businesses in terms of both quality and efficiency. In addition to the printer itself, we will support our customers’ creativity by offering a total solution that includes software and application assistance.’

Main features of the VersaWorks 6 latest version

New ‘True Rich Color’ print setting

To maximise the colour reproduction capability and the colour gamut provided by their printer and inks, Roland developed a new True Rich Color preset. Now vibrant colour can be combined with neutral greys, smooth gradations and natural skin tones to create stunning graphics. This pioneering colour expression is unequalled for durable graphics.

CutContour lines can now be added and edited in VersaWorks 6

The latest VersaWorks 6 is equipped with a ‘Job Assistant’ function that can automatically add contour lines for cutting PDF design data within the RIP software. Even if the cut contour line is missing in a submitted file, printing and cutting can now be performed quickly without returning to the design editing software, allowing jobs with short delivery times to be reliably met.

Compatible with popular spectrophotometers used in wide format printing

In order to respond to the diverse colour matching needs of printing businesses, such as accurately reproducing an intended colour, precisely printing a corporate colour specified by the client, or managing the printer so that the same colour is always output, a spectrophotometer is essential. The latest VersaWorks 6 newly supports drivers for the latest models of the Barbieri, Spectro LFP qb and Spectropad spectrophotometers.

The printer models compatible with the latest version of VersaWorks 6 are listed as follows.
