Global Graphics Software is the originator of the core Harlequin RIP used in our industrial inkjet offering. This means that we have 100% control over the roadmap of our technology and can make changes for a customer without being dependent upon any third party, whereas others in the market will license a core RIP technology from either us or Adobe.
Global Graphics Software is a part of a group of companies which includes Inkjet print head electronics company, Meteor Inkjet (www.meteorinkjet.com).
So using our GGS expertise in software and Meteor expertise in driver electronics, we can drive the device at the highest possible speed, even when printing vast amounts of variable data content.
