At Print 05 Presstek and EFI announced
their partnership to develop the Facet
software RIP, which will be sold under
the Presstek name. The Facet RIP uses
EFI Fiery RIP technology to generate
RIP'd documents in a ROOM (RIP once
output many) workflow. It includes
archiving tools for saving pre-RIP'd data,
PDF files, and PostScript files on the
server's hard drive or external storage
media. It also uses EFI's BestColor proofing
technology in the optional Facet
Proof module for connecting multiple
proofers of various sizes.

The Facet RIP allows users to connect
to other Fiery RIPs and control them
using EFI's Command Workstation interface,
allowing multiple printing jobs to be
controlled from a single computer. Other
features include an Adobe RIP engine,
in-RIP trapping, PDF spot-color support
and spot-color mapping, as well as RGB
workflow support.
