Wasatch Computer Technology is pleased to announce the release of SoftRIP Version 7.2.
Wasatch SoftRIP Version 7.2 has new features and enhancements offering users more control and speed with textile printing, a new advanced halftoning method that improves image quality in fine art, additional options when printing Fotoba Marks, and improved capability with CHROMix Curve3 and the G7® calibration.
Enhancements to Textile Printing
SoftRIP TX has all the features that are needed for textile printing, and now in Version 7.2, these features have been expanded and improved. The improvements to our Repeats feature allow for easy customization with advanced drop and slide options and a “stretch” control that helps adjust for fabric shrinkage.
Plus, RIP speed enhancements quickly and reliably spool data in real time, with speeds up to 550 megabytes per second. With this update, SoftRIP TX can support the fastest textile printers available and also give speed improvements to those running slower computers.
Advancements in Halftoning
Wasatch SoftRIP is already well known for superior halftoning algorithms that produce quality color and gradients with fast RIP speed. This release includes a revolutionary enhancement that accommodates for the fine arts, giving smoothness and better quality to highlights in images, which is particularly useful when dye sublimating to hard substrates. No matter what printer you are using or substrate you are printing to, producing award winning prints with SoftRIP is now simpler than ever.
G7® and Curve3 Updates
Wasatch has made updates and improved capability with CHROMix Curve3 and the G7® calibration method. Becoming G7® certified when using Wasatch SoftRIP has now gotten easier!
Fotoba Cutting Marks and More Drivers
Updates to our Fotoba Option* give users more control over registration marks. Marks can now be combined in new ways to support more workflows and offer additional combinations when printing Fotoba Marks. This workflow revision is what many Fotoba users have been waiting for.
The Version 7.2 release also consists of new printer drivers including the HP Latex 310/330/360, Mutoh VJ-426UF, HP Designjet Z6600/Z6800, DGI FD-1908, plus many more.
