Ergosoft Releases PosterPrint And StudioPrint 11

(February 2005) posted on Wed Feb 02, 2005

PosterPrint features ColorGPS and StudioPrint features six blacks


Ergosoft has released version 11 of its
PosterPrint software RIP. It features ColorGPS,
a new ICC color-profile-generation
engine, and a new screening mode that
improves coverage areas when using variable-
droplet inkjet printers. For matching
spot colors, version 11 can create named
color profiles and provide a printed custom
target of color samples. The "most
appealing" color rendering can replace the
old color make-up values"?all users have
to do is save them as part of the print settings.
Once saved, PosterPrint will automatically
seek and replace named spot
colors with the best recipe to reproduce
spot colors on-the-fly. These new features
help make simulating spot colors such as
Pantone, Toyo, DIC, and HKS easier.

The company also has introduced version
11 of its StudioPrint software RIP for
fine-art and photographic image production.
The new version of StudioPrint features
support for up to six levels of black
for monochromatic printing, opening up
new opportunities for users of legacy 6-
color printers looking for effective ways to
use older equipment. StudioPrint also uses
ErgoSoft's ColorGPS ICC Color Profiler to
generate color profiles and is supported by
variable-droplet piezo inkjet printers such
as Epson, Roland, Mimaki, HP, and Canon.

Both new RIPs feature: the ability to
automatically re-nest images in a single
command; select and scale, rotate, duplicate,
rearrange and delete multiple images
at a time; and hierarchical printer support
that places Print Environments into groups
and subgroups"?giving users the ability to
have unlimited jobs in the job queue. Users
are able to automatically download Print
Environments from the Web during installation
or at any time in the future so their
Print Environments Server is as complete
as possible with the latest profiles. (Ergosoft: www.ergosoftus.com)
