Improve Color and Workflow with the New ONYX 11.1 RIP Software

Onyx Graphics announced the release of ONYX 11.1 software, now available through LexJet. This release adds six new features to the 21 enhancements of ONYX 11.0 software to further streamline wide format workflow for professional print service providers.

ONYX 11.1 RIP Software Update
ONYX 11.1 introduces the Print Mode Defined Colors, which adds the ability to create spot colors based on a specific print mode.

ONYX 11.1 software is available for the full Onyx Graphics product line including ONYX Thrive workflow software and ONYX ProductionHouse, ONYX PosterShop and ONYX RIPCenter RIP software.

Perhaps the biggest news with the new release is that ONYX PosterShop will now include the ability to generate color profiles. Upgrade to ONYX PosterShop 11.1 now to optimize your color output by generating profiles for your unique printing workflow. The ONYX Profile Generation module is simple, easy and automated with the ONYX Print > Read > Next workflow. Powerful tools are also available to control and fine-tune advanced color profiles.

Onyx Graphics designed ONYX 11.1 software to offer users the ability to improve color output quality by taking advantage of the new, expanded gamut ink control included in the color profiling module. This expanded color gamut gives users the ability to easily match corporate colors, achieve deeper darks and print a wider range of colors.

Additional color enhancements in ONYX 11.1 include simplified spot color ink restriction with the new dynamic multi-channel ink restriction swatches, enabling users to enhance output quality without sacrificing color. For example, users can control the starting point of orange and other HiFi inks to eliminate grainy output with multi-channel ink restriction swatches.

Automation enhancements incorporated into ONYX 11.1 include unit sizing and disproportionate scaling in Job Properties as well as mirror and print reflection control.

A new cut path previewing feature improves user confidence in printed output before submitting images to production. The ability to preview cut paths in Job Editor, RIP-Queue and Job Properties modules is combined with a new, cut-only workflow. This new workflow is important for users primarily handling cut vinyl, enabling them to import jobs directly into the cut-server module without the extra step of printing.

ONYX Thrive 11.1 workflow software includes the latest Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE) 3.2 for a true end-to-end PDF workflow. According to Adobe, APPE 3 combines performance optimizations with a new scalable framework to power high-speed digital presses and large format printers. Print service providers will benefit from the fastest rendering platform for reliable reproduction of complex, graphically-rich content.
