With ScreenPro you can achieve excellent print quality at high speeds on your digital inkjet press.
ScreenPro is a multi-level screening engine that will complement any workflow. You can license it on its own, or as part of the Fundamentals software and BreakThrough services package provided by our Technical Services team.
ScreenPro™: recipient of a 2018 InterTech™ Technology Award
Mitigates artifacts in inkjet output. Read the White Paper
Complements any workflow
Add ScreenPro to any RIP, (eg Esko, EFI and Sofha), not just Harlequin
Tune to your press
Optimize print quality by tuning the screens for your press
Quick to market
Reduce development time and get to market quicker
Optimize inkjet quality
Produce very smooth images and graduations or sharp text and barcodes
Accurate tone reproduction
Generate accurate tone reproduction by building density compensation into the ScreenPro halftone definition
Any number of colorants
Create screens for virtually any number of colorant levels and choose which levels you want to use
ScreenPro is available as a white label application that is fully brandable with your logo and styling, ready to go to market. Available on Windows it comes with its own installer and license tool.
The ScreenPro engine is available as a cross platform development component to integrate seamlessly into your workflow solution.
Multiple ScreenPro engines can run on the same server or offloaded onto separate computers. This parallel processing of screens leads to blistering speeds especially with dedicated ScreenPro engines sending print data at press speed directly to the drive electronics driving individual print bars for each color.
Use with any RIP
ScreenPro can be added to any RIP that can create eight-bit contone output (e.g. Esko, EFI and Sofha). So if you have a RIP that consumes a PDL that Global Graphics doesn’t support, like IPDS and AFP, you can still benefit from Global Graphics' leading edge screening technology.
Advanced Inkjet Screens
Advanced Inkjet Screens (AIS) improve print quality “out of the box” on many inkjet presses so they are quick to deploy.
Pearl for absorbent substrates
Pearl is an advanced dispersed (FM) screen, optimized for natural images on a more or less absorbent substrate. It is targeted especially at addressing chaining and streaking artifacts.
Mirror for non-absorbent, poorly wettable substrates
The Mirror Advanced Inkjet Screen is designed with a microstructure targeted at countering the mottling or “orange peel” effect that can be seen when solid colors are used on non-absorbent or poorly-wetting substrates, such as tin cans or some plastics on flexible packaging.
PrintFlat corrects for density non-uniformity, commonly caused by variation within a print head, between heads or wear on the head(s). These attributes result in banding on the printed output which is very difficult to correct for in hardware, for example by tuning voltages.
In ScreenPro every nozzle can be addressed separately on any head/electronics to achieve very fine granularity. PrintFlat can adjust the density within ScreenPro to produce uniform density across a print bar. The process can be automated for closed-loop correction and, unlike correction by adjustment of voltages, there is no effect on jetting stability or head lifetime, nor ink pressure and timing/drop speed variation.
