Xitron to Focus on Partnerships, New Interfaces at Drupa
Exhibiting in 15 stands throughout the show, as well as their own in the USA Pavilion
"People in the industry are often surprised to learn that Xitron is the name behind so many of the RIP and workflow products offered by leading vendors," said Karen Crews, President of Xitron. "Our growing list of OEM partners reads like the 'Who's Who' of high-speed inkjet and traditional commercial prepress."
On display during the show will be workflow products designed for Colordyne (5-C24), Glunz & Jensen (05-C38), CST (05-C03), Presstek (15-D29), Ohio Gravure (16-D10), Krause (07-D28), Trojanlabel (3-B31), Luscher (16-C07), International Graphic Systems (3-B58), and PrePress Boulevard (13-G78),just to name a few.
Exhibiting on their own stand in Hall 15/C54-4, Xitron will formally introduce a new CTP interface designed to drive SCSI-based platesetters such as Creo Trendsetters and the Fuji VX series. This patent-pending technology is the first of its kind, promising a new option for users whose equipment had reached end-of-life due to a lack of compatible SCSI interaction with modern operating systems.
"This was an extremely important development in interface technology,"
In addition, Xitron will be demonstrating new RIP and workflow versions. Featured prominently will be Navigator 11, the latest Harlequin RIP release, which includes several speed, memory, and live transparency improvements. Navigator 11 is the core RIP product in Xitron's Navigator Northstar and Navigator OKI workflows, which include color matching software for use with Memjet Northstar printers from AstroJet, Colordyne, and Neopost as well as OKI 900 series printers.
According to Crews, more product announcements will be forthcoming in the weeks leading up to Drupa.
