Harlequin Core is a Raster Image Processor, or RIP. It converts text and image data from many file formats including PDF, TIFF™ or JPEG, into a format that a printing device can understand. Harlequin is the fastest RIP engine available, powering the next generation of digital printers. Proven in the field, the first Harlequin-based digital presses were introduced from 2002.
ScreenPro is a halftone screening engine. It uses patterns of discrete ink drops and the media to trick your eye into seeing rich colours and tones. ScreenPro is the fastest independent screening engine, allowing our customers to run at full rated print speed whilst enhancing quality (including PrintFlat). ScreenPro can be added to any existing workflow and RIP.
