Global Graphics’ Harlequin RIP® has been chosen to drive four products – one of which sees its Graph Expo debut on the OKI Data Americas booth #4231.

The C711DW is a high-quality digital color label printer and finishing system for short-run commercial applications; it will make its Graph Expo debut. The pro511DW, part of an expanding series of commercial grade digital color printers, is a compact, affordable, and easy to operate web printer that produces high quality digital color labels with impressive speed and accuracy. The C941dn and C931dn – part of the C900 Series of production-quality, full color A3 devices – offer innovative features and functionality including impressive media handling capabilities. Both are supported by an optional Harlequin RIP. The C941dn includes an industry-first LED five station toner configuration, addition white or clear in the fifth position.

“Global Graphics has been a great partner to OKI Data, supplying the raster image processor (RIP) for our successful pro511DW digital label production system,” said Rich Egert, general manager of the strategic technology provider business group for OKI Data Americas. “As we expand our line of innovative production printers – including new continuous print and five color devices - Global Graphics continues to deliver leading-edge RIP solutions to power these units for the graphic arts and production market.”

The Harlequin RIP has been proven to be the fastest RIP technology available and the resulting productivity gains mean that print service providers can handle more jobs in a shift.  Critical for digital label production is its ability to provide pin sharp quality and dazzling color consistently across a wide range of workflows.  Harlequin ColorPro ™ provides excellent color process control and handles brand colors with ease because it includes look up tables for Pantone® colors.

Paul Hagen, VP of sales for Global Graphics Software the developers of the Harlequin RIP said, “we are thrilled to be expanding our relationship with OKI Data Americas as we work together more closely on a range of solutions destined to give print service providers a competitive edge.”

The Harlequin RIP is compliant with industry standards and compatible with a wide range of PDF creation tools.  It handles a wide range of files that would choke other workflows because of its ability to process multiple formats such as PDF, TIFF, JPEG, PostScript, EPS and XPS in one print engine.  Harlequin Dispersed Screening™ enables reproduction with greater sharpness even at relatively low resolutions.
