StudioRIP is a feature-rich application which can be used for most printing applications. The following benefits are specifically relevant to the production of films and plates via an inkjet printer:
Cost effective - The most cost-effective system available with multiple Clients and multi devices as standard.
Unparalleled density control and sharp output - Full control of density and spread, with Density Modulation to achieve the optimum ink density for the dot size being output.
Increased Speed - On selected Epson printers, StudioRIP technology utilizes two or four print-head channels to increase speed compared to other solutions which use one channel.
Ink Spread Compensation - StudioRIP can compensate for inherent gains that are produced on elements such as reversed-out text
Increased Quality - StudioRIP can be setup to increase quality by using special micro-weaving and print head controls.
"We produce the negative films for flexo plates with an Epson SurColor printer and StudioRIP software. With simple set up we achieve excellent results with perfect color."

StudioRIP is a feature-rich application which can be used for most printing applications. The following benefits are specifically relevant to the commercial printing environment:
Scalable Features - Printers can start making plates to their normal specification, but expand to include FM Screening, Proofing and Trapping. CIP3 Digital output allows StudioRIP to grow your business.
Open System - StudioRIP can drive a wide range of devices by interface or via output formats.
Easy to use - StudioRIP has a very easy-to-use interface, allowing expert users to control complex high end features and settings, while simple tasks are accessed with just a few mouse clicks. The Mac client also eliminates the need for a Windows PC in Mac-only environments.
Outstanding Dot Quality - Moiré-Free output, Hybrid Screening as standard with option for FM, as well as tools built into the RIP for making press curves.
Flexo & Label Printers
StudioRIP is a feature-rich application which can be used for most printing applications. The following benefits are specifically relevant to Flexo and Label printing environments:
Low cost – In a market where Flexo tools are notoriously highly priced, StudioRIP is a very cost-effective solution compared to any competitive product.
Flexible Multi Output – The StudioRIP System can drive a variety of machines from Inkjet to high resolution CTP.
Fully configurable - All LPI/ Screen angles can be set to customer’s own requirements; bump curves can also be set.
Advanced Flexo Tools – StudioRIP includes special tools for Flexo; for example, built in advanced viewer, Ink Spread Compensation, and dot texturing for greater ink coverage.
StudioRIP is a feature-rich application which can be used for most printing applications. The following benefits are specifically relevant to digital printing environments:
Easy-to-use interface - Jobs can be ripped and imposed with a few mouse clicks.
Digital Front End - Facilitates variable data work.
Multi Device - A single StudioRIP licence can be used for both CTP and also digital output.
StudioRIP offers an easy to use integrated imposition option. This uses rasterized data to avoid integrity issues of imposing in separate PDF applications.
The Imposition process is very quick, allowing gutters to be changed and marks to be added in fraction of a second. Jobs can be imposed with 2 mouse clicks, or even automatically when selected in ‘jobstyle’.
StudioRIP comes with different modes of imposition, including saddle stitch, step and repeats and custom impositions. Smart templates allow quick impositions which are size independent, allowing for example a 4-up Imposition to work on business cards or A5 Sheets.
Impositions can use the standard marks supplied or customer’s own marks can be imported in EPS, PS and PDF format. The configuration of marks allows for complex rules to be implemented.
StudioRIP XF is the latest generation of a prepress solution that is renowned for its outstanding screening quality, versatility and flexibility. Feature rich to complement any print process, it brings the benefits of productivity, speed and quality at a highly competitive price.
The latest rendering-based architecture, running on either PC or MAC hardware, provides the core capability of StudioRIP to convert in real time any content in the workflow to the required format for display, proofing, digital printing or plate and film production.
Coupled with a very intuitive and easy-to-learn interface, StudioRIP integrates time consuming tasks such as trapping, imposition and pre-flighting into one easy-to-use application. This unique combination guarantees the fastest route from input to stunning results whatever final output process - offset, flexo, digital or inkjet plates and films.
