Xitron Begins SCREEN HQ-RIP Fulfillment
Will now handle all Harlequin RIP upgrades for SCREEN-branded HQ-RIPs
"Our number one priority is to make sure that SCREEN dealers and PT-R users know that there is a support structure in place to help them; now and in the future," said Karen Crews, president of Xitron. "SCREEN's CTP line is recognized around the world as the most reliable and productive engines in the market," she added. "Since we developed our own SCREEN interface and RIP plug-in years ago, we are in prime position to assist SCREEN's existing customers and distributors with upgrades and replacement RIPs."
Global Graphics Software - the developer of core Harlequin technology at the heart of SCREEN HQ and Xitron Navigator RIPs - endorsed the strategy. "Having installed and supported over 5,000 aftermarket SCREEN installations all over the world, Xitron is the logical choice for providing Harlequin RIP continuity to PT-R owners," said Justin Bailey, Managing Director.
Existing SCREEN dealers and distributors can begin contacting Xitron immediately for information about upgrades, new RIP purchases, and PIF interface replacement where required. Xitron's Navigator RIP will also drive SCREEN CTP engines though the Gigabit Ethernet interface on devices so equipped. "SCREEN has done an outstanding job with these systems over the years, and we are very excited to continue bringing Harlequin solutions to their customers and dealers," Crews concluded.
Xitron develops advanced workflow systems and interfaces driving the prepress industry's most popular new, and legacy output devices, prolonging our customers' investments. Xitron's pressroom workflow extends the functionality of press consoles from industry-leading press manufacturers. Xitron's Navigator RIP, Raster Blaster TIFF Catcher, and Sierra Workflow are recognized as prepress standards. Built around the Harlequin RIP core technology from Global Graphics and the Adobe PDF Print Engine from Adobe Systems, Xitron engineers continue to develop solutions for the graphic arts market, driving hundreds of different models of imagesetters, proofers, platesetters, inkjet printers, and digital presses. With shipments of more than 35,000 RIPs, Xitron is the largest independent Harlequin RIP developer in the market and is a subsidiary of Global Graphics PLC.
