New RipMate Version 7.0 Offers Improved Performance to Mitsubishi Imaging Customers

Press release from the issuing company

Mitsubishi Imaging (MPM), Inc. has released a new version of its RipMate software to provide improved prepress performance to users of its DPX family of platesetters. RipMate Version 7.0 is based on the latest Harlequin RIP and brings a number of new features and compatibility benefits for prepress departments that are taking advantage of polyester CTP technology. RipMate simultaneously handles input, interpretation and output of jobs. The software provides an effective, reliable, and high performance front-end to drive the DPX polyester platesetters from Mitsubishi Imaging. A new Font Emulation feature helps overcome delays during those times when a font is missing from a customer-supplied file. When activated, this advancement can make a typographically acceptable match to the missing font with no text overflow, while delivering acceptable character spacing, weight and width. The program also fully supports PDF version 1.5 as well as JPEG 2000, including optional contents, x-ref streams, compressed object streams and 16-bit images. "Page layout and prepress software is continually being upgraded. It can be challenging for printers to keep-up with all the changes," says Frances Cicogna, Marketing Director of Graphic Arts Systems for Mitsubishi Imaging. "RipMate software has been enhanced to handle these changes and provide our customers with the right tools to facilitate their prepress workflow."
