Onyx Graphics is planning to release Onyx 19, the latest version of its wide format RIP software later this summer.
Onyx has developed a new Spark Engine, which is said to promise better performance. It uses advanced compression algorithms, a threading pipeline and new rendering technology, with Onyx claiming an increase in RIP’ing speed of up to 200 percent, and in the printer performance of up to 400 percent, while Step and Repeat performance is said to be up to 600 percent faster.
It also gains a new system of colour management controls, DeviceLink+, for achieving consistent colour across an entire site. It can build iccMAX v5 profiles and there’s a choice of three new dot patterns for smoother output.
Kevin Murphy, president and CEO of Onyx Graphics, commented: “With unrivalled speed and performance from the new Spark Engine, coupled with next generation colour management using DeviceLink+, Print Service Providers can reach new heights using Onyx 19.”
Onyx 19 is the core RIP engine, which will then form the basis of Onyx Graphics range of products, including Onyx Thrive print workflow, OnyxPosterShop, and Onyx RIPCenter RIP software. Those customers signed up to the Onyx Advantage program will be able to request a key update.
