Roland PrintStudio by Caldera is a powerful RIP and print management software designed for Mac OS users that's packed full of advanced features for demanding graphic and business requirements. It ensures high-end output with a powerful Adobe® PDF Print Engine and ICC profiling tools, while reducing design and processing time with automated preset options and template-driven tiling.
Featuring easy and advanced tools to reduce media waste and streamline workflows, PrintStudio helps users deliver on spec, on time, every time.
Work Quickly and Acurately with PDF Files
At the heart of RPS software is the Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE 4) that allows users to work quickly and accurately with native PDF files. It features 64-bit processing to deliver super-fast image processing and operation, and to eliminate common problems often associated with layers and transparencies.
Advanced Workflow Functionalities
Adding unlimited hot folders and other automated features save time and help users create their own streamlined workflow. Select a preset with one-click to build user-defined printer settings, such as ICC profile, print resolution, copies, and more.
In addition to hot folders, other advanced workflow tools include an image bar that stores and sorts images for quick access.
Ultimate Color Control
Multiple PrintStudio features provide color accuracy that's second-to-none. Industry standard color libraries including all RAL, HKS and Pantone® color swatches are supported, as well as low-cost color spectrophotometers.
The Roland Color & Metallic System Libraries provide hundreds of accurate spot colors. In addition, advanced features for special color generation (Wh/Gl/Mt) ensure perfect pixel-to-pixel registration and impressive color output.
Quote, Template, Print
A speedy quotation process is essential. With PrintStudio, production estimates are made easier via a built-in cost calculator that determines ink and media costs. For repeat orders, users can create templates for ultra-fast production layouts. These could include templates for jigs, photo picture mounts, vehicle wraps and much more.
Other efficiency tools include powerful nesting tools that feature contour nesting to minimize media waste and manage your consumable costs, and the ability to output to two printer/cutters or printers, plus a cutter simultaneously.
