New version supports new printers, boosts productivity.
Onyx Graphics has released Version 7.2 for its workflow software packages-Onyx ProductionHouse, PosterShop, and RIPCenter. The new features in Version 7.2 are designed to boost productivity, help realize additional cost savings, and ensure consistent output quality.
The latest version adds support for new printers, cutters, and color devices, including: drivers for Epson GS6000, HP Designjet L65500, Seiko ColorPainter H-104S, Canon iPF605 & iPF720, and Graphtec Signjet 500 printers; drivers for the Gerber M-Series and Roland GX Series cutters; and drivers for the Spectro Swing color device from Barberi, which supports both sheet-fed swatches and backlit and clear film media.
Other new features and enhancements in Version 7.2 include:
* "FDRP Enhanced," a new error diffusion dot pattern designed to produce finer, smoother output, especially in printers with "fixed-dot" modes.
* Improvements in the ICC Profile Generator to increase accuracy and smoothness of gray and black generation while improving color output and accuracy on CMYK+ printers.
* Support for HP Professional Pantone emulation technology on select HP printers, as well as enhanced drivers for the various HP Designjet models. In addition, integrated RAL and HKS color libraries for automatic professional color-standards matching are now standard, and the new Pantone Goe uncoated colors have been added. Version 7.2 also includes support for automatic spot color matching in color blends.
