Xitron Launches Navigator Northstar

Press release from the issuing company

RIP and workflow for inkjet printers using Memjet Northstar print heads 

Ann Arbor, Michigan – Xitron, the leading independent developer of RIP and workflow products for commercial, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing has released Navigator Northstar for sale through their extensive worldwide dealer network. Navigator Northstar improves the color accuracy of Astrojet M1/M2 printers as well as the Colordyne 1600 (C & S), RTI-Digital Vortex 850/851, Trojan One, and Formax Colormax (among others), all of which use the Memjet Northstar inkjet head. A complete list of compatible Memjet-based printers can be found at http://www.xitron.com/products/navigator-northstar.

“Digital printing doesn’t have to equate to a lack of color control,” said Jeffrey Piestrak, Product Manager. “The color adjustment tools built into this workflow make it extremely easy to match a job’s spot colors without impacting the rest of the document.” Users adapt quickly to the intuitive interface, which guides the operator through the process. The result is a near immediate increase in productivity with the color accuracy people are looking for.

Piestrak added, “By combining the power of the Navigator Harlequin RIP with Xitron’s color transform technology, what you see is what you print, consistently.” Designed for the desktop envelope, flyer, and label market, Navigator Northstar includes Navigator RIP version 10.1r2, Navigator Color Matching Workflow, and the Northstar connectivity plug-in developed by Xitron. The system is multi-platform compatible and accessible from anywhere on a user’s network.

Navigator Northstar is shipping now, available through Xitron dealers worldwide. Printers interested in locating a Xitron dealer can visit http://xitron.com/northstardealer.
