If you aren't running a current RIP version, you aren't ready for PDF 2.0. This means that you are in danger of incorrect file interpretation when you submit jobs for final output to computer-to-plate engines, imagesetters, screen printing

systems, flexo CTP engines, and more.

We haveve installed over 35,000 RIPs worldwide. We're experts in both Harlequin and Adobe platforms and we can recommend the right configuration for the type of work you do. Tell us what kind of RIP you have and we can get you to the latest version almost overnight.

Just need additional functionality in your existing RIP? No problem. Trapping, CIP3, Stochastic Screening, Rater PDF Output; they're all available and can usually be enabled through a simple code over Team Viewer.
