CalderaRIP Version 14.1 to enhance digital cutting and printing

August 19, 2021

French software developer Caldera has this month (March) launched the latest iteration of its award-winning RIP software, CalderaRIP Version14.1. Included in the upgrade is a range of new features that have been designed to improve accuracy and expand users’ capabilities in digital cutting and printing. PS and EPS file processing is also enhanced with a 10 percent speed boost for faster, more efficient workflows.

The improvements to the PS and EPS workflows are provided by the new embedded PS2PDF engine, which is powered by Adobe PS Converter. The result is a 10 percent speed gain and, working in combination with the Adobe PDF Print Engine, the new version of CalderaRIP ensures coherent, reliable and scalable PS and EPS workflows and high-quality results.

Additional features of the new version include the support of new M1 chip on macOS platforms, and improved accuracy across a variety of applications. The Print Standard Verifier module has been updated to embed the latest Idealliance textile standards, allowing users to check the conformity of prints against international standards for color consistency. Idealliance professional standards and specifications are widely recognized across the graphic communication industry.

Accuracy is the holy grail of digital printing, and CalderaRIP Version14.1 provides a new algorithm to generate NColor linearization targets for the X-Rite i1iO3 with the i1Pro3 Plus spectrophotometer. The resulting accuracy gains are perfect for applications that require a wide color gamut, such as packaging or textile printing. Used in combination with the RIP’s state-of-the-art color management tools, the X-Rite i1iO3 and the i1Pro3 Plus deliver color-optimized workflows.

Working with Barbieri Electronic, Version14.1 now supports the Sensing Unit of the TotalColor qb Textile Edition spectrophotometer – an innovative device that helps to avoid measurement errors caused by distorted charts. According to Stefan Barbieri, CEO of Barbieri Electronic, “The ease of use of our instruments from within Caldera EasyMedia manager was always a key to success for effective inhouse media calibrations, and therefore guaranteed color accuracy across media. This new addition extends that to the textile printing industry, which needs to continuously calibrate various fabrics.”

Version 14.1 also aims to improve accuracy of cutting and trimming workflows with the support of Summa’s OPOS Xtra feature, which helps to calibrate the cutter locally, increase the alignment methodology for smaller stickers and ensure an accurate cutting process at all times, even on deformed or shrunk media. This feature is available for all Summa cutters benefiting from this option, including the new Summa S One and the S2 series, as well as the HP Latex Plus cutters —all supported by V14.1.

CalderaRIP is a powerful solution that can seamlessly integrate into any printing and cutting environment, allowing users to drive several Print & Cut peripherals with just one license. As always, this new version focuses on customer success and performance and is driven by user needs across a wide range of printers and applications.”
