A strategic relationship has been formed between Global Graphics and Delphax Technologies, wherein Global Graphics’ Harlequin technology will power Delphax’s next generation of products, the first of which is the elan 500 cut-sheet inkjet press.
Global Graphics' Harlequin Partner Network formally recognizes the growing community of third-party software developers whose products are used in the same print workflow as the Harlequin RIP or alongside it inside a Digital Front End. Network members can request copies of the Harlequin RIP for use in their test labs, together with extensive documentation, and will receive alerts about upcoming releases and enhancements so that they can accelerate development of their own products.
Global Graphics Software has introduced the latest version of its Harlequin RIP software, Harlequin MultiRIP 10, that has been developed specifically to enable print shops to grow out into digital print or to expand into digital marketing. It introduces major new features that speed up the processing of PDF/VT and increase the rate that pages are fed to the press for significant productivity gains.
The Harlequin RIP has been chosen by HP to drive the new range of HP Print Module Solutions, expanding Global Graphics’ strategic relationship with HP under which the company currently supplies the RIP technologies to drive the HP Indigo range as well as the HP inkjet web press range.
The latest version of the “digital” Harlequin RIP, has been chosen by Tokyo Kikai Seisakusho (TKS) of Japan to drive a new inkjet newspaper press that will be launched in the second half of 2012. The web fed Jetleader 1500 will be used for high-speed, full-color digital newspaper production, printing 600 x 600 dpi duplex at 150 meters per minute.
A major new version of the Harlequin RIP is released today by Global Graphics Software, with even faster performance than its predecessors and a new range of productivity features for print shops. Version 9.0 of the Harlequin Server RIP introduces FOGRA certification (FograCert CPS), full support for the new PANTONE Plus library, accelerated live transparency processing and PDF/VT support.
PDF/VT enables reliable document exchange for variable data and transactional printing. It uses the Portable Document Format (PDF) based on the existing ISO PDF/X-4 and PDF/X-5 standards and will simplify VDP printing in a range of environments, from desktop printers to digital production presses.
Global Graphics has called upon HighWater CTP Ltd. to cease immediately from using the Torrent brand so as to create a false association between HighWater CTP’s Studio RIP and the Harlequin RIP.
