ONYX X10 RIP Software to support new PANTONE PLUS SERIES
Sep '10
With the recent release of version X10 of production RIP software, ONYX Graphics, Inc. adds support for the new PANTONE PLUS SERIES, the next generation of the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM and the PANTONE FASHION + HOME System Color Libraries.

Users of ONYX ProductionHouse, ONYX PosterShop and ONYX RIPCenter version X10 RIP software will see immediate compatibility with content creation software also using the PANTONE PLUS SERIES, leading to easier processes, shorter timelines and improved color matching capabilities.

"We have enjoyed a long-standing, collaborative partnership with Pantone, sharing a goal of delivering technology innovation that heightens color consistency and impacts the success of print service providers," said Dean Derhak, product director at ONYX Graphics.

"Support for the new PANTONE PLUS SERIES in our production RIP software gives print shops easier working processes, shorter design-to-print timelines and improved digital print compatibility. We also have customers providing paper and textile print products for markets using the PANTONE FASHION + HOME System that need easy color matching to that standard."

Pantone is the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design and print industries. With PANTONE PLUS SERIES and PANTONE FASHION + HOME color definitions incorporated into ONYX production RIP software, operators can simply process print jobs containing named PANTONE spot colors, and the software will automatically match output to the PANTONE colors as closely as possible. This capability extends to all printers supported by ONYX production RIP software including CMYK, CMYKOG and RGB photo imaging print devices.

"As a global leader in color technologies, it is our philosophy and our commitment to empower our clients to become leaders in their own industries," said Andy Hatkoff, vice president of technology licensing and business development at Pantone.

"For printers and production experts, that means having the processes to efficiently and accurately reproduce color across a wide range of applications. We are very pleased to have had such a long-standing and rewarding relationship with ONYX Graphics, and welcome its support of our color technology in the wide format digital printing market."

Support of the new PANTONE PLUS SERIES and PANTONE FASHION + HOME Color Libraries saves operators time by eliminating manual input or color definitions, thereby reducing inaccuracies in the final output and increasing efficiency of the printing process.

ONYX Proprietary Color Engine Boosts Color
Unlike other wide format RIP providers, ONYX Graphics has developed an integrated color management engine specifically designed for wide format inkjet printing. The ONYX proprietary 32-bit floating point based color management engine includes patented black generation and gamut-maximizing technology that takes full advantage of the full gamut of wide format inkjet printers when performing spot color matching. This provides ONYX customers with extremely easy and accurate spot color matching with the most possible colors.

The ONYX Spot Color Reporting feature in ONYX ProductionHouse and ONYX PosterShop Version 7 and X10 packages shows users how accurately PANTONE colors can be matched on each printer, ink and media combination. Operators can see how accurately the RIP color engine can match all PANTONE colors before printing, providing confidence in printing and reducing do-overs.
