High-production RIP for print-for-pay environments


ProductionServer4, from ColorGATE, is a
workflow-specific software RIP designed
for high-production environments in the
print-for-pay market. It's available in two
separate packages: ProductionServer4
SELECT and ProductionServer4 PRO.

ProductionServer4 Select is for the
beginner and includes major working
functions such as rotating, reflecting,
copying, centering, duplicating, cutting
out and previewing, section labeling, infotext,
and free text. It can support one
printer and operates with one RIP/printer
queue. It features a single hotfolder user
interface, auto tiling, and includes ICC
color management with included ICC profiles.
Users can load ColorGate Media
Packages and then reference ink and
media profiles for ICC linearization.

ProductionServer4 Pro is the high-end
production tool. It includes the same major
working functions as Select, but also features:
an unlimited hotfolder interface;
support for two printers; two RIPs/printer
queues; a multicolor ICC engine; auto and
variable tiling; TWAIN interface for use of
TWAIN-capable scanners and digital cameras;
expanded color correction with visual
soft proofing; editing and exporting of
media, ink, and reference profiles;linearization synchronization; printouts of
documents during calculation; and automatic
media-optimized arrangement of
several jobs on one printed sheet. (ColorGate: www.colorgate.com)
