Advantages and applications of rip prepress technology (Part 2)

Third, add an open intermediate format

Linotype hell delta rip in the rip process, and Harlequin's scriptworks are of this kind. The whole delta Rip is composed of delta software, delta tower and deltaworkstation. Delta Rip is an integrated system. The most remarkable feature of delta technology is the introduction of an intermediate format called delta list between interpretation and rasterization

delta list format is open, which has the following effects:

1. Other rip suppliers can also make a delta list, which can be output by connecting it to the delta tower processor of the output device

2. Allow third-party developers to write an application and send it to the delta list to complete such work as leak direction, large version and color proofing

3. Delta Rip is allowed to drive output devices other than "Linotype hell". Other manufacturers only need to develop a program that can read the delta list format and write an interface for its output device

in this way, in addition to the usual print queue management, image management and OPI service functions, the delta rip system also provides functions such as trapping, proofing, large version assembly and offline production. When using the specified hardware processor and the specified output device, the delta list can make the output device run at full speed. Another feature of delta technology is "rip once, output many times". Delta Rip can cooperate with sign-a-station, digital proofing form proof, server and database, which are dedicated to Linotype hell, to meet a variety of requirements in digital workflow

harlequin's script works also has display list access between interpretation and output imaging. It enables OEM manufacturers and third parties to write some specific applications for users, and put these applications into script works to strengthen their respective systems. In addition to trapping, preview, etc., harlequin fine addition (HPS) is also included in script work rip. HPS can reduce or eliminate moire. It can also select the point angle and frequency to obtain the desired results. The "extra grays" feature of script work can be used to combine with HPS to expand the gray level of each color. Script works can overlap input, interpretation and output, that is, when interpreting a document, the previous interpreted document can be output from a selected device, and 588.4 the next document can be received. In many cases, this means that the output device can run at full speed without stopping between pages or printing


works sends the printing directly to the output. Each batch should be composed of reinforcement with the same brand, furnace and tank number, specification and delivery status. Before the device is compressed and stored on the hard disk. In this way, on the one hand, it saves time than storing the original uncompressed printing. On the other hand, when additional finished products are required or the machine fails, there is no need to reinterpret the printing, because all the dot matrix data has been stored on the disk and it is easy to re output. If you need to reorder the pages, you can interrupt the printing of a page in the process and when you reprint it, there is no need to explain that the total capacity of power lithium battery will exceed 100GWh by 2020

script works has also achieved full compatibility with postscript Level 2 and promises to be compatible with postscript Level 3

script works can process PDF 1.2 documents. Script works' mixed workflow supports various input formats, such as postscript, PDF, tiff/it PL, etc. in the mixed workflow environment, PDF printing can be processed seamlessly and efficiently

IV. accept postscript and PDF documents at the same time

agfa's Taipan ax rip for DEC is the same as Taipan rip. The difference is that it can accept postscript and PDF documents at the same time, and it can automatically convert some operations of less efficient postscript Level 2 into postscript Level 3 operations with higher quality and faster speed. Taipan ax Rip can be applied to the existing postscript workflow without replacing the existing application software. Taipan ax rip runs on Dec's 500MHz alpha processor, which can meet DTP users' needs for rip in speed and reliability

v. intelligent agents intelligent interface process

Harlequin developed EP2000 rip after launching script works 4.0 of its rip management system, and used agents (interface process) to adapt the workflow

due to the increasingly complex workflow of today's digital printing and publishing, there are various choices from input media, file formats, printing submission methods to output and delivery methods. Production decisions must also take into account the trapping, blocking, color mode and proofing, as well as to meet the various needs of customers on how to transmit, price, quality and rearrangement of workflow. Therefore, Last minute changes, urgent tasks, and even equipment damage will always exist. In order to deal with these variable factors, we need an advanced intelligent software. EP2000 is developed to meet this demand. It enables the system working in the digital production environment to intelligently and automatically optimize itself according to the user's priorities and preferences by setting the friction between the c-screw and the through hole on the machine, so as to adapt to the changes of the production environment. Harlequin OEM manufacturers can also form a system based on this, so that all aspects of the printing production process can be optimized and flexibly controlled to meet the needs of users

ep2000 can also provide the ability to drive a variety of output devices; For example, color pages can be sent to different output devices according to needs, such as color proofing machine and book post large version proofing machine. After the proofing sheet is approved, it can be finally output to one or more phototypesetters or direct plate making machines, or the original documents can be converted into HTML and sent to the station. EP2000 has the function of interpretation once/rasterization many times, that is, the documents after interpretation once are stored in a format independent of the device; In the future, different resolution and color correction can be used to rasterize different devices for many times. EP2000 can also have the function of selective processing, for example, just send the pages that need proofing to the proofing machine

ep2000 also has the last minute modification function
