VersaWorks 6 RIP Software Features
64 Bit Native Support for More Powerful RIP Processing
VersaWorks 6 includes 64-bit native support to maximise performance of the latest 64-bit OS. It improves processing capability for complicated data, including PDF files with complex vectors and multiple layers, with power and accuracy.
Note: A 32-bit binary RIP will be installed automatically if the installer detects a 32-bit OS.
Reproduce Special Effects Accurately
Previously, issues could occur when reproducing files with special effects such as drop-shadows and transparencies. VersaWorks 6 supports for processing PDF files natively, rendering special effects the way they are intended to look in the design. You can now handle files with special effects without hassle, leading to improved efficiency from receiving the data to outputting consistent, high-quality results.
Enhanced User Interface with Improved Usability
VersaWorks 6 is even more intuitive thanks to a redesigned user interface consistent with the latest design trends. Its simpler, flat design offers expanded visibility for a better user experience. Intuitive icons and a monotone look improve ease-of-use.
Easy Printer Colour Matching for Consistent Colours
VersaWorks 6 offers an easy-to-use colour matching function to ensure consistent color between multiple same-model printers when using the same ink type*. Now, you can choose to produce volume work from one client with multiple printers, or print a large, combined graphic with two printers, all with consistent colour. VersaWorks 6 can compensate for colour differences caused by aging or replacement print heads, too.
* Valid only when using the same model printers with the same ink type and configuration. Files must be printed with the same print settings including “Media Type” and “Print Quality.”
5 Print Queues and Hot Folders for Greater Efficiency and Productivity
VersaWorks 6 allows you to have five separate queues with distinct settings applied to jobs automatically. Each queue offers unlimited saved settings, allowing you to store necessary print setting information according to specific customer requirements and media for recurring jobs. In addition, each queue can have a hot folder to improve production such as when there are multiple designers working in one location.
Generate a Special Colour Layer Directly in the RIP
Traditionally, when you wanted to specify a special colour layer like white, metallic, gloss/clear and primer, you needed to perform this task in your design software. With VersaWorks 6, you can set-up a special colour layer directly in the RIP along with fine adjustments to the position and size of a special colour layer all performed in VersaWorks 6.
PANTONE® Library and Roland Colour System
As well as featuring a built-in PANTONE® library with detailed spot colour matching and choices, VersaWorks 6 supports comprehensive colour libraries and offers features that enable automated colour matching of logos and other corporate identity elements.
