Rolandprintstudio (RPS) RIP Software Features
Accelerate Your Output with 64-bit Processor
Full 64-bit support maximizes the operating system’s available resources for blisteringly fast image processing speeds.
Grab and Create Profiles
A powerful profile engine helps users easily access and create ICC profiles for specific devices and medias, offering more control and improved output consistency.
Connect Multiple Machines
RPS software offers multicast capability so that users can run a printer and cutter operation or support two printers at the same time.
Automatic Nesting to Save Time, Space and Materials
A nesting tool automatically positions multiple print jobs on your media in the most space-saving arrangement available and allows you to crop images to contour lines for the tightest placement possible. This enables long print runs of multiple images in the same production run and helps users minimize media waste and reduce material costs. There are also manual nesting features available for custom spacing and media planning.
Perfect Your Production with Step and Repeat
A step and repeat tool effectively prepares a single image for repetitive printing and cutting with automatic and manual spacing options. It also offers positive or negative bleed options for printing and cutting graphics with perfect registration. Additionally, users can clip to a contour path to minimize media use.
Color Features for Special Effect Printing
Create a speciality color layer (white/gloss /mt) by duplicating the CMYK data. With one click you can add and print your speciality layer from inside the RIP eliminating the need to add separate layers in the design process.
More Spot Color Choices
All RAL, HKS and Pantone® color swatches, including metallic, are included in RPS to help deliver accuracy from artwork to print.
Tile and Tile Again
Created to output simple or detailed large format graphics, the tiling tool allows users to plan complex print jobs as well as offering easy tiling options with simple panel setups. Use the template-driven tiling feature to reduce design time, minimize media use and enable easy construction of large format graphics in post-production. Save template data so that new images can be dropped into the same template for re-sending.
Generate an Application Guide for Easy Installation
To complement the tiling function, RPS features an application guide for the installation of large-scale tiled prints or vehicle wraps. Save time on complicated briefs and documentation by automatically generating an application guide PDF that provides accurate and easy-to-follow application instructions.
Image Bar for Quick File Browsing
An image bar enables users to store multiple images for quick access and efficient print set up. The image bar can be tailored for individual business needs, sorting images by their name, customer name or date.
Unlimited Hot Folders for Quick and Easy Production
Hot folders represent a quick and easy way to save and automate the printing process by saving an original document and its preflight results in a hot folder for access at anytime. In RPS, users can save unlimited hot folders for maximum automation of the RIP functionality.
Keep Track of Production with the Spooler Function
A sophisticated spooler function allows multiple users to submit to a print queue and send quick reprints via historical job settings. The historical job access allows users to check print history, look at previous job costing and print settings.
Costing Module Does the Calculations for You
To increase the speed and accuracy of the quotation process, users can input special costs, media roll size and length, and ink usage. This information can be combined with each artwork to automatically calculate print costs per sq/ft.
