The RIP software is fully scalable via the application of OMS. Every OMS can contain the following components. A printer driver of the categorie Cat.1, Cat.2 or Cat.3 or S, M, L or P, an Adobe PDF Print Engine RIP and the optional Ink Saver Module.
Ink Saver Technologie – Less Ink Same Quality
ColorGATE customers are using the Ink Saver Technology successful for many years. With Ink Saver Module the total amount of ink can be reduced by up to 30 percent without a visible loss of quality, which also means a reduction of the total printing costs.
