Onyx Graphics, Inc., a leading software solution provider for the wide-format printing industry, announced that its ONYX software was recently certified for the HP Latex R Series printer line, the first hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll printer for rigid and flexible printing in one device using white latex ink.
HP chose award-winning ONYX software last month during the FESPA Global Print Expo in Berlin to showcase the capabilities of the newly-unveiled HP Latex R2000 Plus printer with white ink technology.
HP's RIP certification programme defines a comprehensive set of compatibility criteria aligned to the highest performance standards and the unique capabilities of HP Latex printing technologies. The HP RIP Certification is a process to differentiate HP RIP partners who reach a specific and superior level of integration, compatibility and performance with the specific device. Only companies that have demonstrated conformance with these criteria are awarded HP Latex certified status.
For the new HP Latex R Series printers, Onyx Graphics designed the driver to include new custom ONYX Quick Sets to make it even easier to print with white ink. The included Quick Sets feature uses the ONYX Spot Layer tool to generate white under- or over-layers, resulting in spectacular white output for sign and display applications.
"ONYX software certification by HP and its integrated compatibility with latex printers recreates the definition of quality and colour for white ink applications on transparent or coloured media," said Bryan Manwaring, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics, Inc. "HP Latex R Series customers utilising ONYX software can feel confident in delivering consistent quality output with efficient printer operation, right out of the box."
