Roland DGA Corporation has announced that its Roland VersaWorks® Dual RIP and print management software is now available free of charge to customers of several additional existing printer models. VersaWorks Dual, already available for Roland’s TrueVIS™ VG and SG series, SOLJET® EJ-640 and VersaUV LEF-300, LEF-200 and LEF-12i printers, is now also compatible with the models listed below:
• SOLJET Pro 4 XR-640
• VersaCAMM® VS-640i/540i/300i and SP-540i/300i
• VersaStudio® BN-20
• VersaEXPRESS™ RF-640
• VersaUV LEC-540/330, LEF-20/12 and LEJ-640/640FT
Roland’s VersaWorks Dual RIP builds upon the intuitive, easy-to-use capabilities of Roland VersaWorks to provide high quality printing, while adding enhanced processing and editing functions. VersaWorks Dual not only enables users to work with PostScript® files, it also allows for native processing of PDF files to ensure that transparency effects are processed accurately.
In addition, White or Clear ink data can be generated easily in the RIP, making VersaWorks Dual ideal for producing transparent window graphics, stickers, and personalized accessories with special effects. The position and size of special color data can also be adjusted in the RIP for perfect registration. Features such as rotation and mirroring of the data can be configured in the RIP as well, without the need to return to graphic design software. For LEF users, the newly available Maintain Clipped Position function is included, allowing you to print designated images only.
“Roland’s extensive experience in developing RIP and print management software has allowed us to create innovative tools, like VersaWorks Dual, that bring out the best in our advanced inkjets,” said Daniel Valade, Roland DGA’s product manager, color products. “This powerful yet easy-to-use software optimizes overall performance by putting incredibly useful functions and resources at the user’s fingertips. And, unlike other solutions that require an additional investment for the RIP, VersaWorks Dual is provided for free, allowing Roland customers to be productive right out of the box without added costs.
“The fact that VersaWorks Dual supports native PDF processing, alone, is a huge benefit, not only for printing sign and graphics, but also for product decoration, package prototyping and other applications.”
