New for Print 13 is Harlequin MultiRIP 10 from Global Graphics (Booth 958), developed specifically to enable print shops to grow into digital print or expand into digital marketing. It contains innovative new features to help small offset print shops respond to the requirement for shorter print runs and variable data printing.
Print more jobs in a shift: Extensive multi-threading means that pages pass through the RIP faster than ever before. With Harlequin Parallel Pages the RIP will interpret one page while it’s still rendering the previous one. A 64-bit RIP build now allows use of virtually unlimited amounts of RAM to ensure that even the most complex jobs run at high speed.
Variable data support: Harlequin VariData greatly accelerates the processing time of PDF and PDF/VT files containing variable data, by using a unique method of intelligently recognizing repeated content. Even jobs with single-use images, QR Codes for purls, or personalized graphics can now be output at full engine speed.
