Navigator Harlequin RIP and Workflow
Navigator RIP Options
Navigator Harlequin RIP Options
From in-RIP trapping to Simple Imposition, Xitron offers Navigator RIP options designed to save time and money.
TrapProTM is an object-based Harlequin trapping option for the Navigator RIP that delivers outstanding performance with excellent memory utilization. Its powerful trapping engine is augmented by highly configurable trap settings that allow you to fine tune your software RIP to accommodate a diverse range of jobs types and customer requirements.
HXM Hybrid Screening
Designed to improve print quality by increasing the output LPI for any given resolution, Hybrid Screening uses a combination of AM and FM dots. If a printer is currently imagining plates at 2400 DPI with output at 150 LPI and is able to hold a 1% dot when printing on the required substrate, using HXM screens makes it possible to print at 200-250 LPI without any special pre-press or on press requirement. HXM substitutes FM dots in highlights and shadows for greater clarity and definition.
Harlequin RIP Simple Imposition is an easy to use tool designed to address the most common imposition layout schemes, often eliminating the need for a separate imposition application. It can be used in a stand-alone Navigator RIP or in conjunction with Navigator workflow.
Automatically generate .ppf ink control files for press consoles capable of CIP3 import.
Frequency Modulated Screening (FM) places dots of varying sizes in a pseudo-random way to produce the required imaged without standard halftone screening. Some of the advantages include increased apparent sharpness and the removal of cross screen and object moiré. This is accomplished because the dots are dispersed instead of clustered as they are in a traditional periodic screen.
Create rasterized PDF files of jobs for soft proofing or output on third-party systems while maintaining RIP accuracy.
Quickly correct color separation issues before they get to plate.
Additional RIP Support
Control up to three RIPs and their respective output devices.
Configure up to ten concurrent PC or Mac clients controlling the workflow from anywhere on the network.
Convert PS files to PDF inside the workflow; apply pre-flight profiles and action lists based on the Enfocus Library. Catch and correct common job errors before they get to plate while saving valuable time and money.
Upgrade the viewer module to include screen measurement and dot percentage tool for on-screen proofing accuracy.
InpO2 is a powerful, modular PDF imposition software, built right into the familiar environment of Acrobat DC. As a modular imposition solution, it can be accessed from within the Navigator workflow, providing an intuitive, logical approach to plate assembly.
