Specialist distributor for Barbieri Electronic, IGS UK has announced new additions to the portfolio of RIPs supported by the Italian company’s colour management and digital imaging products. The highly regarded Spectro LFP Series 3 and Spectro Swing Series 2 spectrophotometers can now benefit users of Mimaki, Roland and Agfa printers, as well as those working with EskoArtwork’s Kaleidoscope colour engine and Four Pees’ ProofMaster and PrintFactory.
Additional support will be implemented in the near future by Barbieri Electronic to include CadLink’s Signlab in the wide-format sector, plus Amica’s ColorPrint, Serendipity Software and Inedit’s Nèostampa. These solutions will bring increased user benefits to all digital print companies who want to save time and increase throughput by optimising their colour accuracy and profiling.
Barbieri Electronic’s families of spectrophotometers are designed to be cost-effective and easy to use, enabling users to profile their output devices efficiently and accurately for consistent results on all materials. By being able to measure flexible and rigid materials, including options which handle transparent and reflective media, users can create their own linearisation and ICC profiles and fine-tune their results to effect ink savings whilst maintaining full colour integrity.
Amongst the extensive list of existing RIPs already supported by Barbieri Electronic in the wide-format market are the Wasatch SoftRIP, Caldera’s Linux-based products, ColorGate ProductionServer, EFI Fiery XF and eXpress, Mimaki’s RasterLink and Roland’s VersaWorks. The company also produces options for other graphic arts sectors with products supporting DuPont’s Cromanet CS, GMG’s ColorServer and Heidelberg’s PrintOpen.
IGS UK specialises in sourcing, developing and bringing to market innovative products for the design and production of wide-format print, working with proven reseller channels throughout the UK, Europe and beyond. With the emphasis on greener practices and reducing waste, the company recently launched the Elements family of printers which incorporate proprietary environmentally-friendly heat-cured resin-based durable inks.
