Big Picture

Scanvec Amiable has released version 5 of its PhotoPRINT RIP to the large-format marketplace. Scanvec's PhotoPrint RIP is available in five options: SE, a RIP solution for a single workstation; DX, a layout and design package that can RIP and print to two printers at once; Server, for large networked production environments; Server-Pro, a client-server package; and Server-Ultra, a client-server solution with additional profiling capabilities. Version 5 features the following enhancements:

  • White-ink support on devices with white-ink functionality;
  • A "Rotate Image to Fit Media" feature to save media and avoid tiling;
  • Support for new color-measurement devices such as GretagMacbeth's iCColor and X-Rite's Pulse and DTP-34;
  • Printer simulation requires only an output profile instead of full set-up;
  • Presets can now include cut settings and can be added into Default Job Properties;
  • Users can view an image's color information by moving the cursor over the image preview;
  • Borderless printing devices are now supported; and
  • The Mac version now includes a Pantone Library and Global Color Mapping. Prices: SE, $995; DX, $1595; Server, $3495; Server-Pro, $4295; Server-Ultra, $5295.
