Lucid Dream Releases Latest Version of I-Trap Trapping Solution

Friday, November 08, 2002

Press release from the issuing company

Version 1.1 Enhances Processing Efficiency, Customization Capabilities HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL, November 7, 2002-Lucid Dream Software, the leading developer of enhancements for Heidelberg Delta ROOM workflows, recently released the latest version of its powerful I-Trap (TM) software, the first major upgrade for Harlequin (R) in-RIP trapping. The new version increases the user's ability to customize I-Trap to workflow requirements by enhancing the software's Color Look-up and Trap Set features, increasing processing efficiency. I-Trap, version 1.1, enhances efficiency by enabling users to add customized trap sets to the automated trapping queues. The software's in-RIP plug-in configuration automatically calculates ink-based trapping parameters for spot colors on the basis of process color settings. Version 1.1 allows users to edit/create an existing customized trap set to meet a new workflow's requirements. Once the new trap set is created, users can name it and add it to the automatic trapping queue in the in-RIP plug-in configuration. I-Trap, version 1.1, also enhances efficiency by automatically updating the software's Color Look-up table when new jobs are processed in the I-Trap Viewer, which lets users interact directly with the trapping settings. I-Trap's default Color Look-up table comes with process colors and several spot colors. Users can select these individual spot colors as needed. As more and more jobs are processed using the I-Trap Viewer, new spot colors are added automatically to the software, creating a customized Color Look-up table that the user can employ on other jobs. In addition, I-Trap, version 1.1, features an enhanced import Wizard for creating Trap Instruction Objects (TIOs). A TIO is used for standalone trapping of an ArtQuest Crescendo or TIFF/IT-P1 file format in the I-Trap Viewer. A TIO lets users apply trapping to these files and output pages having the same file format. I-Trap, version 1.1, also offers the ability to apply user-defined page features and other special settings to the RIP's trapping plug-in. I-Trap is the first major upgrade for Harlequin in-RIP trapping. The raster-based solution offers automated in-RIP and interactive trapping in an easy-to-use, off-the-shelf package. Ideal for all size print shops, I-Trap integrates easily within Harlequin workflow environments, has independent trap parameter settings, and features a Harlequin native interface. The plug-in works with virtually any vendor's ScriptWorks RIP and with both PostScript (R) and PDF workflows. I-Trap installs as an integral part of a Harlequin RIP on the PC platform. Additional platforms will be added in the future. I-Trap supports Heidelberg Delta, ArtQuest Crescendo, and TIFF/IT-P1 files.
