Speed up platesetting with reliable, automated processes.
- You can process PostScript and PDF files directly without
- The plate and proof are output using the same RIP for the
best possible match.
- Presetting data is forwarded to the pressroom and postpress
for fast make-ready processes.
On your marks, get set, image. Speed and precision are
crucial aspects of print plate production. Here too, the more
automated your processes, the faster and more reliable they become.
The raster image processor (RIP) converts the layout data for your
print job into high-resolution screen dots that can then be output
on platesetters, proofers or the digital press.
The Prinect RIP is based on Adobe Standard and works with the
Adobe PDF Print Engine. The special thing about this process is
that you can rip PDF documents directly without first converting to
PostScript. The PDF documents are processed correctly with the
transparencies, which avoids errors during proof and plate output.
The all-in-one solution
Prinect uses a single RIP for both proof and plate, thereby
ensuring integrated color management and identical output results
throughout your print shop workflow. In addition to being used for
platesetting, the Prinect RIP links prepress with downstream
production sections by forwarding digital data. For example, ink
coverage values from the RIP are used to create ink presetting data
for presses, and folding and cutting marks to preset postpress
machines. This digital prepress data paves the way for quick
