Ergosoft RIP Software

RIP Software is used in the digital printing industry to deliver consistent, colour-correct, high-quality output. While the name mainly refers to the image rastering process, i.e. processing an image file through a colour management routine and then sending it on to the printer, modern RIP Software solutions (Sometimes referred to as Soft RIPs) such as the ErgoSoft RIP 16. In addition, it delivers a host of other functions and features to increase productivity and quality in digital printing applications such as textile printing, wide format printing, fine art reproduction, etc.

The main functions of a RIP have four categories:

  1.  Job Composing / Layouting / Editing
    Most RIP software solutions also feature a graphic editor component (in ErgoSoft RIP, the JobComposer), allowing users to import images and place, arrange, and edit pictures on a surface to define how they should appear on the printed medium. This also includes Editing features of the ErgoSoft RIP, including scaling, rotation, tiling, automated nesting of multiple image files on the medium to minimize waste or facilitate easier cutting. In addition, of course, ErgoSoft also offers more advanced features such as colour replacement, masking, Step & Repeat, various nesting functions etc.
  2. Colour Profiling
    A few RIP software solutions come with integrated ICC profiling software, such as the ErgoSoft. With a so-called profiler, users can create custom colour profiles for the printer/ink/media/parameter combinations that they use. By measuring said charts, the profiler analyses the printer’s behaviour in terms of ink application, etc. It can automatically adjust ink application and colour recipes for printing to ensure users get exactly the colours they expect.
  3. Processing
    Perhaps an essential part of any RIP Software is the Raster Image Processing itself, which renders the image file(s) of any supported file type or size to the required printer resolution and ensures fast, accurate colour reproduction through colour management.
  4. Production Management
    RIP Software such as the ErgoSoft RIP often also comes with a suite of tools to help manage and overview the production process across all connected printers by adding, deleting or re-prioritizing jobs on the fly. Simultaneously, handling multiple printers can be cumbersome when working with generic computer drivers or with several manufacturer-specific interfaces. A RIP Software unifies the production queue and allows users to prepare simultaneously, process and print to multiple printers, regardless of type and manufacturer.

    The ErgoSoft RIP even features cost calculation and tracking tools for users to keep track of costs of media, ink and workforce for individual printers and jobs across their entire production.
