The first JDF-enabled Harlequin RIP will be demonstrated by Global Graphics at drupa 2004. Global Graphics will be present alongside other JDF-capable vendors and developers in the CIP4 JDF Parc. More than 25 leading vendors at drupa will be demonstrating a wide range of products featuring Global Graphics production technology, including: AB Dick, Agfa-Gevaert, Compose, Creo, Screen, ECRM, Heidelberg, KPG, PressTek, RealTimeImage, and Xitron.
Within the PrintCity Networking Hub, Global Graphics will demonstrate the
new JDF-enabled Harlequin RIP specifically handling a remote proofing
application as part of a live? multi-vendor integrated production
workflow. In the demonstration, PDF files delivered by an Agfa workflow
will be automatically processed by the Harlequin RIP and output at high
speed and quality to an inkjet proofer.
Visitors and OEMs will be able to see the full, JDF v1.1 compliant
capability of the Harlequin RIP as it automatically controls rendering,
screening, trapping, color management, calibration and output of combined
or separated files both here and in the CIP4 JDF Parc.
