Bringing you Prepress Independence® since 1977
Xitron has been developing prepress solutions since 1977. Our mission is to engineer intuitive, productive, and affordable alternatives capable of driving output devices manufactured by the most popular vendors on the market today.
"Before printing was discovered, a century was equal to a thousand years.” - Henry David Thoreau
Harlequin RIP Workflow Development
Xitron’s engineering team introduced our first Harlequin-based software RIP in 1992. Under continuous development since, the Navigator RIP includes 64-bit architecture, native PDF interpretation, accurate transparency rendering, and customizable workflow modules. Optional features such as trapping, imposition, load balancing, and non-disruptive preview take Navigator well beyond the scope of a simple RIP.
Adobe Workflow Development
For production environments preferring the Adobe PDF Print Engine, Xitron offers Sierra; a complete prepress workflow that includes JDF integration, built-in dynamic imposition, and cross-media functionality. Built around APPE 2.6 (currently), Sierra includes PDF preflighting, advanced soft proofing, and Adobe’s proven in-RIP trapping.
Output Device Interfaces
Xitron RIPs, Workflows, and TIFF Catchers can drive hundreds of the Computer-to-Plate devices, imagesetters, proofers, digital presses, high-speed copiers, and ink jet printers on the market today. Communicating through software “plug-ins” and our innovative USB interface, Xitron makes it possible for these expensive systems to remain in production for years, often outlasting the manufacturer’s expectation and maximizing the user’s investment.
Custom Software Development
The development team behind our industry’s largest and most well-known names belongs to Xitron. Companies such as Agfa, Ryobi, Mitsubishi, Memjet, Glunz & Jensen, Ohio Engraving, Global Graphics, Presstek, and Neopost rely on Xitron engineers to deliver industry-standard software that is as reliable as it is productive.
