Xitron Announces Successful drupa Opening

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Xitron, a leading developer of open prepress workflow systems, announced an outstanding response to prepress and pressroom workflow on display at drupa May 3-16 in Hall 15, Stand A23-5.

Xitron’s new products include a new Navigator Harlequin-based RIP workflow for inkjet-to-film and inkjet-to-polyester plate; Windows 7 64-bit compatible USB device interfaces for Heidelberg Prosetter, Agfa CtP and Screen CtP and the next generation Navigator Workflow Server including a preview of the Mobile Proofing app for iOS and Android.

“The opening days of drupa were an overwhelming success for Xitron,” stated Mark Eisenschenk, Xitron's President and Chief Executive Officer. “The positive feedback from our dealers and end-user customers exceeded our expectations, letting us know that our continued investment in developing affordable workflow solutions for the screen, flexo and commercial print market are on target with the needs of industry.”

Xitron is highlighting its entire line of prepress and pressroom workflow products for screen, flexo and commercial printers.


The Navigator Workflow Server is the foundation for Xitron’s prepress and pressroom workflow products including the Navigator GPS, Navigator Elite and KeySetter Connect ink key presetting software. Xitron will preview the next generation of the Navigator Workflow Server including a unique mobile proofing app for iOS and Android.

Xitron’s Navigator Workflow helps prepress operators increase productivity, manage workflow, and reduce costs. An intuitive interface allows operators to manage their work from a Windows or Macintosh workstation, while directing output production through one or more Harlequin RIPs.



Navigator direct-to-film and direct-to-plate inkjet workflows for Epson Stylus Pro 4900, 7700, 7890, 7900, 9700, 9890 and 9900 provide cost effective output capabilities for smaller screen, flexo and commercial printers. These workflows are among the many inkjet-based products in the Xitron product line.


Xitron’s Windows 7 64-bit compatible USB interfaces support Xitron’s full line of workflow products including the Navigator workflow based on Harlequin RIP core technology, Xenith Sierra based on the Adobe PDF Print Engine and Raster Blaster, a TIFF catcher capable of accepting TIFF files from a variety of third-party workflow systems and outputting to any of the hundreds of devices support by Xitron.


Xenith Sierra is the premier workflow offering in Xitron’s line of RIP and workflow solutions. Based on JDF and the Adobe PDF Print Engine technology, Xenith Sierra is an excellent solution for larger printers who need comprehensive control over every job, while automating prepress tasks, Xenith Sierra provides the tools and power to substantially increase throughput, improve quality, reduce errors, and maximize performance.


Raster Blaster accepts standard 1-bit TIFF files from virtually any prepress workflow. The Xitron device interface converts the TIFF to the appropriate output format to drive the specific CtP, direct imaging press or imagesetter.
