Rob Goleniowski, Business Manager - Sign & Graphics at Roland DG UK highlights the benefits of using Roland's VersaWorks RIP software
Roland DG believes users should not have to decide whether or not to invest in RIP software, it should be a given and an integral part of the offering.
To get the best performance out of a workflow in terms of ease of use and output, RIP software is as important as the printer and the ink used. A printer is only as good as the software that controls it. As such, Roland's philosophy is to create and offer a perfect synergy between all parts of this workflow triangle to ensure users can maximise their machine and all print production jobs. This is why Roland's RIP software, VersaWorks, is included with all Roland DG wide format printers.
VersaWorks is a bespoke software package built on the latest Adobe postscript engine and developed by Roland's team of engineers. As it's tailor-made for Roland printers, we can guarantee the best integration between the printer and the RIP. This gives our users greater control over their print jobs.
Users also get free VersaWorks software updates for the life of the Roland machine, so you'll always have the latest version and added features without any costly upgrades required.
A good RIP is critical to production and we want to make sure Roland users consistently get the best out of their Roland machine.
VersaWorks is flexible enough to accommodate companies of all sizes, be it a print business with one entry-level printer or a larger outfit with a production line of three or four machines.
The software supports up to four Roland devices, including printers, printer/cutters and stand alone cutters.
VersaWorks also integrates with commonly used design packages, and Roland is about to launch an extensive Pantone library to be included in the new versions of the software. With VersaWorks, there is quite simply no limit to how creative you can be, and with the additional colour library, it will be even easier for users to match colours correctly on the first attempt.
The price of Roland's RIP software is built into the price of the printer, so it's one investment for a complete workflow package. The solution will soon pay for itself through an easier, shorter solution allowing users to produce more, high-quality print jobs.
