Xitron and its dealers are the only source for upgrades to HighWater products such as the Torrent RIP.
"The response to our upgrade program for HighWater Torrent RIPs has been tremendous," stated Mark Eisenschenk, Xitron's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Users are taking advantage of this opportunity to upgrade their investment in the older HighWater products and extend the life of their existing prepress RIP and workflow investment. As a result, we have decided to extend this promotion for an additional 30 days."

- Latest Harlequin RIP technology

Xitron's Navigator Workflow Server automates prepress workflow and helps prepress operators increase productivity, manage jobs, and reduce costs. An intuitive interface allows multiple operators to manage their work from a Windows or Macintosh workstation, while directing output production through up to four Harlequin RIPs. A cascade of RIP workflow steps may be created by the user to fit specific job or client requirements.
Optional modules allow the Navigator Workflow Server to create and preflight PDFs; perform ink remapping; and support ROOM proofing to any Xitron and most third-party proofing solution. The Navigator Workflow Server also offers ink key presetting capabilities with KeySetter, a series of pressroom workflow solutions to connect the prepress department and pressroom together. KeySetter connects to press consoles for Heidelberg, KBA, Komori, manroland, Shinohara and others.
Users wishing to take advantage of these special programs should contact their local Xitron dealer or Xitron directly at www.xitron.com/upgrade.
