Wide format printer manufacturer MUTOH, represented by Mutoh Europe for the EMEA territory, has received a prestigious EDP award for its genuine Mutoh VerteLith™ RIP software in the category “Workflow Technologies”. The award was presented to Mutoh yesterday by the European Digital Press Association during a video conference.
“We are very proud to receive this prestigious and very valuable technical award for our new VerteLith™ RIP software on behalf of our Japanese development team”, says Stephan Heintjens, Mutoh Europe’s Product Marketing and Product Application Manager. “The EDP awards represent a strong point of reference for decision makers in the digital print industry. For Mutoh it is a token of recognition and acknowledgement of our ongoing commitment to bring high quality, added value and innovation in our products. Our VerteLith™ software enables Mutoh printer owners to get the best from their Mutoh printer and allows them to manage the entire print environment better and more efficiently from one central backbone software”, Heintjens concludes.
Mutoh’s VerteLith™ software is built around the Harlequin host renderer ensuring fast RIP processing times for both PDF and PostScript files, as well as perfect handling of transparencies and spot colours.
The VerteLith™ RIP integrates halftone screening technology specifically developed for inkjet, called “Clear Tone”. This Mutoh proprietary technology will allow you to seamlessly produce the best possible gradients and skin tones.
To avoid waste, the software includes powerful preview functionality, supporting soft proofing and on-screen RIP previewing of the actual printed dots before printing.
VerteLith™ can also auto-generate white and/or varnish layers based on a selection of presets allowing the user to perform the ink-cost calculation prior to printing. Output can be perfectly prepared for the next step in the production process via the finishing toolset, allowing flexible tiling, crop marks and grommets.
For businesses who already invested in a RIP solution, VerteLith™ can be installed in “Pass Through” mode, leaving intact the existing workflow and adding extra functionality.
