Global Graphics Software
The software behind perfect printed and digital communication

Digital Labels and Packaging

With the Harlequin Host Renderer at the heart of your printing press you can create exceptional quality output that will meet brand owners' exacting requirements for representing their products.

That's because Harlequin enables you to achieve accurate brand colors and consistent color from the first to the last print.

And with Harlequin you can build digital front ends (DFEs) for your label and packaging presses without incurring high costs and minimize the bill of materials for the DFE vs. the cost of the press.

Plus with an increase in special product offers, time-limited and regionally adapted ranges, today's label and packaging printers are under even more pressure to produce top quality variable content quickly and efficiently. Harlequin drives the fastest presses in the industry and handles variable data at high speed.

With Global Graphics as your development partner you can be sure of the technical versatility and the commercial flexibility that will make your new press a success.

Variable Data Printing

Harlequin VariData™ gives you significant performance increases on processing PDF/VT and variable content in regular PDF files. It uses a unique method of intelligently recognizing repeated content and responds to changes in variable data usage.

Greater Speed

Harlequin Parallel Pages™ allows the RIP to process one page while it’s still rendering the previous one. It greatly extends multi-threading support, so you can use both your workstation and server-grade multi-core CPUs more efficiently.

“We chose Harlequin because we wanted to offer our customers a user-friendly experience when loading jobs to the machine and also to make it as flexible as possible.”
