Xitron bundles workflow with RIPs

Xitron is to include its Navigator workflow product with all new high-resolution RIP kits sold through European dealers. Up to now, the workflow module has been a separate purchase.

Karen Crews, president of Xitron, explained “Prepress customers are demanding more productivity out of their software but their budgets don’t often allow for performance options. By offering additional features and functionality without extra cost, we can give customers an economical alternative to over-priced RIP and workflow packages.”

Xitron has sold over 30,000 Navigator RIP kits worldwide, which are used with a fair range of CtP devices, including those from Screen, Agfa, Fuji, Heidelberg, ECRM, Presstek, Creo and Kodak.

The workflow module is designed to automate the throughput process and also allows the RIP to be accessed from any workstation on the network. It also includes Raster PDF output and so can help smaller printers transition to digital output without having to buy in a separate RIP and workflow.
