TEWKSBURY, MASSACHUSETTS -- ECRM today announced their release of RIPmate Plus at the upcoming PRINT 2009 exhibition. Engineered to accelerate the productivity beyond that of a standalone RIP, RIPmate Plus contains software enhancements which enable the remote control of the RIPing process. Any network workstation with a web browser can now be used to view, roam, and zoom (in or out) on any part of the rasterized image for soft proofing, as well as hold, release or re-direct a job without going to the physical RIP station.
ECRM will launch and demonstrate the productivity benefits of RIPmate Plus at PRINT 2009 (Chicago, September 11-16) by showing a streamlined workflow in their booth (#6524). RIPmate Plus includes an ECRM RIPmate RIP and is available immediately. For more information, go to www.ecrm.com.
For standalone RIP users, RIPmate Plus is a valuable productivity enhancement, notes John Marzec, ECRM Director of Product Management. While files can be sent to the RIP from all over the production facility, no one has to physically (and unproductively) be waiting at the RIP station for preview and job release. Once the file is RIPed, the production manager can check the rasterized file by roaming and zooming anywhere on the image [including traps]. And they can do this from any workstation with web and network access. This software can be invaluable as an enhancement to the workflow and quality assurance process of any print operation at a very attractive price point.
RIPmate Plus is also available as a software enhancement package for standalone ECRM and Harlequin RIP users. Its available from any of ECRMs worldwide marketing partners or directly from ECRM. For more information, go to www.ecrm.com.
