June 14, 2005 – CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA - RIPit Computer Corp., the primary workflow and CtP provider to the majority of quick printers and franchises in North America, will debut a new, much in-demand CtP configuration; as well as show its newest SpeedSetter Violet Metal CtP and Symphony Workflow solutions at PRINT 05 in booth #6560. PRINT is produced by GASC every four years, and will be held in McCormick Place in Chicago on September 9 - 15, 2005.
Sir Speedy #50250, of Sarasota, is on its second RIPit SpeedSetter, recently adding the Violet Metal CtP system. Says Jeremy Mitchell, production manager, “RIPit gives us an incredible, unbeatable package for an amazingly low cost of entry. I’m pushing 240 lpi easy with OpenRIP Symphony, which comes with all the bells and whistles, including imposition, full-featured RIP, and always available tech support. We’re saving ink and saving money, and at the same time giving our customers high end quality like they’ve never seen before.”
RIPit's SpeedSetter VM offers industry-standard drum quality from RIPit in a compact, easy-to-use, and reliable package; and comes standard with RIPit's OpenRIP Symphony Workflow with Adobe PostScript 3. The OpenRIP Symphony Workflow utilizes RIPit's award-winning, core OpenRIP technology.
In addition to controlling close to one-hundred imagesetters, platesetters, printers, and plotters natively, OpenRIP Symphony can also control a wide range of PostScript and TIFF-in devices from a single interface. RIPit's core OpenRIP technology set the standard for a flexible, straightforward prepress workflow; and Symphony extends it to copier, printer, and out-of-shop work, as well.
OpenRIP Symphony's PostScript 3 interpreter (CPSI 3016) provides the highest level of compatibility with modern graphics applications. It integrates scanning, trapping, proofing, and imposition into a single powerful package, and processes all for output on any device that can accept PostScript, TIFF or GDI files.
