Wasatch Computer Releases SoftRIP Version 6.3

Thursday, May 08, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

(May 07, 2008)  – Salt Lake City, UT – Wasatch Computer Technology has jumped ahead of the competition again with their new release Wasatch SoftRIP, its industry-leading RIP and Print Management software. New features include a powerful Template Creator that defines layout image place holders for repeatable placement and sizing; Database Tools to import industry-standard or user-defined spot color matching tables; Two new Halftoning Innovations; and a RIP-to-TIF generic printer driver. Also included are new printer drivers for devices from Mutoh and US Sublimation. Wasatch will be demonstrating Version 6.3 at the upcoming ISA, FESPA, and DRUPA tradeshows.

SoftRIP Templates
SoftRIP Templates save hours of prep time for users with standardized output sizes and placement needs. The template interface includes tools for specifying image location, alignment, and scaling attributes. Simply apply the template to a new layout to drag and drop images straight to their desired location.

The template building toolset streamlines printing for workflows that demand consistent image placement and sizing. Key uses of SoftRIP Templates include T-shirt printing, flatbed printing, and a wide variety of industrial printing applications.

Spot Color Database Import
This release provides spot color database import tools for matching hues in industry-standard swatch books or key customer data files. SoftRIP Version 6.3 imports databases based on Microsoft Excel files or any other comma delimited data format. To suit various types of color databases, values can be entered using the more accurate 0-255 interval or a standard 0-100 percentage.

Halftoning Introductions
While Precision Stochastic Screens Halftoning produces the highest quality possible for most users, SoftRIP version 6.3 includes two new halftoning methods to serve growing market niches. A new algorithm based on Error Diffusion halftoning optimizes quality specifically for the newest generation grayscale print heads. In the flexography market niche, Wasatch’s halftone refinements will revolutionize the adoption of inkjet separations. New flexo halftone options are available exclusively in SoftRIP SP for Separations Printing.
