||TOPAZRip is Raster Image Processor software (which
translates a vector based image under Post Script language into
a bitmapped rasterized image with the wide format printer can
reproduce. The rip software not only does interpreting PS language
but also does color matching, layout adjustment, communication
with printer, black enhancement, color correction, workflow
management and etc for the recent advanced printing environment.)
and we released our new Rip software, "Topaz Rip Business
- Server feature
multi-queue workflow, virtual printer setting, automatic printing
stream and job management
- Color management
CMS wizard to create user's own linearization and ICC profiles
without any additional s/w nor devices.
- Color Correction
Freedom of color correction separated from CMS with dynamic
Powerful black enhancement and other important features for
getting exactly expected print output.
Amazing printing speed (Ripprint: rip&print on the fly)
and Easy 'dual-mode' Interface.
Powerful cropping/tiling module and rigidly structured file
Perfectly support supercell, Variable dot, Hifi inks (Lc,
Lm, Lk, Or, Gr...) at the same time.
More than 256 level true color gradation with new screen technology
(Topaz QuBis Screen)
Photo-quality interpolation algorithm (Topaz BiCubic interpolation)
Hi-level media-machine interface control and etc.
You'll find the totally difference concept of Nesting in TOPAZ.
TOPAZ Nesting does not require importing of ripped images.
If we import ripped raster images on nesting layout, we'll
not be able to freely edit each job and total size of nested
job will be too big to handle.
Benefits of TOPAZ Rip in comparison with
no option for Best Resolution Ripping
in another rips, when user wants best quality output. Topaz
rip provides various ripping option including original resolution
ripping, which creates the best output.
- There's lack of Color Control ability in other rips. Most
of users suffer from color correction problem in other rips.
A. When user like to increase 10% of Cyan only. However the
output shows increased yellow unexpectedly. B. When user want
to print Backlit, black control is very important. With other
Rips, if people want to increase ink cut, overall color is
out of control. So in many backlit application, black color
is too weak if user prevent the output from ink running, which
is critical for back-light applications. C. People cannot
correctly predict the change of color in output when adjusting
color in other rips, that's because other Rips are too dependent
on ICC profiles. TOPAZ Rip expands the gamut of ICC profile
and allows user to freely adjust colors. TOPAZ
Color control is predictable, flexible and controllable.
This is because TOPAZ color control module is independent
to ICC profiles.
- There's a limitation of output length in other rips. There's
no limitation in TOPAZ Rip. 500m long
printing is possible, if there's real 500m long media roll.
- There's very strong interpolation algorithm in 'Scale-Up'
application in TopazRip, which is called "Topaz Bicubic
Interpolation". This enables the best scaled up
output from small pictures. There's lack of this option in
- TopazRip's new screen technology (Topaz Qubis Screen) allows
the smoothest gradation (single,
dual, multiple colors). Even better than Epson driver itself.
- TopazRip has Profiling Wizard
in it as a default, which other rips cannot provide. There're
3 levels of profiling in TopazRip. People can do linearization
and profiling without profiler software and calibration devices,
just with using normal scanners.
- Ink level is very important point
in signage printing. (Very important and this looks the key
point of TOPAZ)
In many cases, total ink limit can be lower than 200%, due
to the 3rd party ink and media. However ICC
profile cannot meet the accurate color under the 200% of total
ink limit. The recommendation is to change the ink
or media in this case. However, this is not allowed in the
real world. TOPAZ Rip was designed to help users to resolve
this problem, to get the best result even when they have only
100~120% of total ink limit. TOPAZ Rip has 256X256 level of
gradation and sophisticated screen technology to resolve poor
quality problem in white point.
- TOPAZ has unique algorithm to treat with Epson's HIFI technology.
This can be applied to all Epson-head family like Mimaki,
Roland and Mutoh.
It is very important to use variable
dots and light inks in Epson heads. But theoretically
two technologies are conflicting with each other. TOPAZ is
one of a few solution which cleverly resolve the confliction
and shows the best quality with using both technologies at
the same time.
It is also very difficult to control the curves of light inks.
We found the optimal curve through the intensive study on
Epson technology and we show the smoothest interchange between
light colors and normal colors.
- TOPAZ Nesting is seemless module
enabling real flexible and free edition of huge and complex
This is very useful for textile printing and print&cutting
as well as signage printing like POP.
