Harlequin Core

Harlequin Core is a Raster Image Processor (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. It's at the heart of SmartDFE™, a full software and hardware stack that provides everything you need to add print to a fully automated smart factory. Harlequin is also available as an SDK, if you wish to build your own solution.


ScreenPro is a halftone screening engine. It uses patterns of discrete ink drops and the media to trick your eye into seeing rich colors and tones. ScreenPro is the fastest independent screening engine, allowing you to run at full rated print speed whilst enhancing quality (including PrintFlat™). ScreenPro can be added to any existing workflow and RIP.
