Global Inkjet Systems has announced a new Atlas user interface platform. It’s sold as a software development kit that printer developers can customise and rebrand, helping them to cut their development time.
It provides many standard user interface components including job design & review, transport control, job creation, submission and tracking, printhead status, system status, RIP configuration and ink system monitoring and control.
Companies using this to develop machines can modify standard user interface views. This includes changing logos, buttons, shadows, colour transparencies, backgrounds can be deleted, moved and modified – and much of this can be done without programming skills.
GIS will be rolling out levels of functionality and customisability during 2016, including access to the full SDK, which allows customers to completely re-skin the user interface and add their specific machine control components. It will support different languages, with the first to be added being Japanese and others to come in 2016.
