Xitron Network CTP Interface to be Shown at Graph Expo

Coincides with North American introduction of Raster Blaster 4.0
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Sept. 19, 2016 - PRLog -- Xitron, the leading independent developer of RIP and workflow products for commercial, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing has announced that Graph Expo will be the North American launch venue for two new products. Raster Blaster 4.0, the industry's first "intelligent" TIFF catcher will make its debut along with the much-anticipated Xitron network CTP interface, known as B3.

"B3 and Raster Blaster 4.0 are next generation products that change the way prepress workflows communicate with computer-to-plate systems," said Xitron Product Manager Jeffrey Piestrak. "B3 eliminates the need for a dedicated computer platform to act as a CTP TIFF catcher, localizing the interface directly on the network. Besides saving hundreds of dollars in additional cost, B3 offers complete flexibility with regard to equipment location in the shop."

Raster Blaster 4.0 is a browser-based window into plate production, providing output control from anywhere on the network as well as through smart phones and tablets. Performance data and media usage are automatically tracked and operators can export detailed reports with intelligent filtering. Raster Blaster 4.0 can be used in conjunction with B3 or with existing Xitron USB interfaces as an upgrade from earlier versions of the software.

Xitron has an installed base of over 30,000 Navigator RIPs and workflows and nearly 5,000 Raster Blaster TIFF Catchers worldwide. Driving CTP devices from Agfa, ECRM, Creo, Kodak, Presstek, Heidelberg, Fuji, and Screen, they provide prepress independence® to customers who want to maximize their investments by extending the life of their prepress systems. Xitron will be exhibiting in booth 941 at Graph Expo in Orlando, September 25th through the 28th. More information is available at www.xitron.com.
