Onyx updates RIP software

Onyx Graphics, which is a subsidiary of Canon Océ, has released v12.1 of its Onyx RIP software, which is fairly popular amongst wide format users.

Onyx Thrive and PosterShop have been updated with the latest 12.1 version of the Onyx RIP.

The overall performance has been improved, with Onyx claiming that the 12.1 version is up to three times faster than v12 for halftone processing. It also gains integrated G7 correction, verification and iterations, making it easier to match colour and build output consistency. There’s greater automation and improved support for other devices such as QR codes in the Zünd Cut Center as well as additional colour measurement devices from Konica Minolta and X-Rite.

The RIP software is used as the core for several Onyx products, including Thrive, which is more of a wide format workflow, as well as ProductionHouse, PosterShop and RIPCenter.
