Designed for entry-level wide-format printer environments.
ONYX Graphics has announced its GamaPrint line of RIP software, designed for entry-level wide-format printer environments. The product line includes two versions: GamaPrint SE and GamaPrint Pro.
Both GamaPrint versions are built upon the Onyx's color technology and production-level RIP engine, and both are compatible with PostScript. Both also feature a WYSIWYG graphical user interface and a manual workflow for easy color management and a variety of convenient image layout, edit, and print functions. The workflow toolset includes sizing, cropping, color correction, contour cutting, and nesting.
Onyx GamaPrint software includes a fully-licensed Pantone spot color matching library, making spot color matching easy and accurate. Other color features include color-management presets, separate matching methods for raster and vector images, and embedded ICC profile support. GamaPrint software also provides color-accurate image previews on-screen, to keep ink and media usage to a minimum.
GamaPrint SE is designed for low-volume processing and printing to one printer. It offers a manual workflow with basic nesting tools, easy color correction, and Pantone spot-color matching. It supports simple process-and-print, print-and-cut, and cut-only workflows. GamaPrint SE can be upgraded to GamaPrint Pro and Onyx ProductionHouse.
GamaPrint Pro can process and print to two printers simultaneously. In addition to all the features of GamaPrint SE, the Pro version also includes Media Manager for calibrating new media and recalibrating existing media, and it includes printer drivers for mid-range solvent inkjet printers. GamaPrint Pro can be upgraded to ProductionHouse.
GamaPrint software supports TIFF, JPEG and JPEG 2000 file types and is reliable with PostScript and PDF languages.
Price: $995, GamaPrint SE; $2995, GamaPrint Pro.
