Plus, a fixed-term option for Value Pack.

Big Picture

ColorGate has announced the Version 9 upgrade for its line of RIP software, including Productionserver, Filmgate, Plategate, and Proofgate. All products will now be equipped with Adobe PDF Print Engine 3.5. The upgrade includes two new modules, an access control module for enhanced workflow security and a multichannel PSD module, which enables users to process multichannel files for applications with special color handling requirements such as textile and ceramics printing.

Other new features include:
• Backup and restore function;
• Improvements to the profiler module;
• A Target Generator that allows for the creation of profiling charts with customizable layouts;
• And Container+, a function that allows for more flexibility when nesting several print jobs into one.

In addition, ColorGate has also announced a new fixed-term option for Value Pack, its software maintenance and support program. While Value Packs 1, 2, and 3 renew automatically each year, Value Pack 365 expires after one year. Value Pack 365 contains the same services as Value Packs 1-3.
