Big Picture

The latest edition of Wasatch SoftRIP, version 6.8, offers a variety of newly introduced features, including a new Separations mode, Press and Calibration Curves, enhanced custom inkset support, improved handling of PDF files that involve transparency, and more.

• The Separations mode provides for the production of separation films and for direct-to-screen and direct-to-plate systems. In Separations mode, SoftRIP SP will automatically detect the correct separations to produce for incoming jobs, whether files are opened by a user in the RIP or printed directly from application software, with no user interaction.

This makes it easier for users to construct color profiles for processes that suffer from extreme dot gain, such as dye-sublimation and digital textile printing.
• This release improves support of custom inksets for popular printers. The custom inkset creator that allows users to configure SoftRIP with custom Hi-Fi inksets.
• Version 6.8 includes improvements to the handling of PDF files that involve transparency.
Wasatch SoftRIP Version 6.8 also offers a new Hindi user interface and now offers new support for Chinese printers such as Gongzheng, Micolor, A-Starjet, and Galaxy.
