More effective printing in less time
Introducing CalderaRIP Version 13
With the latest version of our award-winning RIP software, you’ll discover a whole range of new and improved features that will not only help you save time across your workflow, but deliver a more streamlined operation unique to your needs. With all your favorite applications and new drivers available, now’s the time to upgrade for a whole new Caldera printing experience.
An overview of the V13 changes
There’s lots to appreciate in this new version – which, as always, has been developed to enhance the user experience by providing intuitive functionality for faster and more cost-effective printing.
For dye sublimation and backlit printing, this new feature will save up to 20% of prepress time by allowing you to mirror print and cut data directly in the RIP.
You can now adapt the order in which you print tiles to achieve significant onsite time savings during large tiling jobs, blueback and building wrapping.
CalderaJobs – Detailed View
Save time by managing a clean view of your past jobs while keeping track of production with a new, faster search engine and detailed job view.
This allows users to customise the information they include in annotations rather than the legacy Caldera standard or detailed information, saving space on media and allowing for circumstances when you can’t use a barcode or QRcode reader.
Save up to 60 percent of prepress time by automatically converting transparent backgrounds behind the image to spot channels.
Adobe Textile Designer Integration
Gives you the ability to design with confidence and print with accuracy, using a single streamlined process for accurate textile print production. You’ll be assured accurate pattern repeatability, with correct and consistent color management across all devices.
