Onyx Graphics Adds Specialty Ink Module

For white ink, spot colors, and liquid laminates.

Big Picture
Onyx Graphics has made a Specialty Ink Tools module available for users of its Onyx ProductionHouse and Onyx PosterShop version 6.5 workflow software. Specialty Ink Tools was created for users of select large-format inkjet printers that have the ability to use white ink, spot colors, and liquid laminates. The module currently supports printer models from Mimaki, Roland, NUR, Durst, Kornit, and Zund.

Designed to reduce job-preparation time by streamlining the application of special inks, the module enables users to:
-- View media color and special ink areas on-screen prior to printing;
-- Adjust ink fill behind or over an image area;
-- Control the ink fill areas;
-- Select background colors with one click; and
-- Save settings and apply them to any Quick Set for full automation of future print jobs.

The Specialty Ink Tools module is included in the price of ProductionHouse software packages purchased after October 1, 2005; these users can download it from the Onyx Graphics website in the AutoUpdate section. Owners prior to October 1, can purchase the module for an MSRP of $495. Cost for PosterShop 6.5 users is $1495.
