Wasatch Computer Technology, an industry-leading developer of RIP & Print Management software, will bundle their powerful and innovative RIP software, Wasatch SoftRIP, with Epson’s new SureColor® SC-F6000 and SC-F7000 roll-fed dye-sublimation printers in North America, South America, China, Singapore, and Taiwan.
Both the 44-inch SureColor® SC-F6000 and the 64-inch SC-F7000 provide high-quality output up to 720-x-1440 dpi on all leading transfer papers. These new printers are the first dye-sublimation models from Epson and all the components, including ink, printheads, printer body, and optional accessories, are designed and manufactured by Epson. This results in a low-cost, high-revenue printing system that is optimized for performance, quality, and reliability.
Wasatch SoftRIP has features tailored for the dye-sublimation and digital textile printing markets, making it the perfect solution for these printers. SoftRIP’s Press Curves and Calibration Curves make it easy for users to construct color profiles for processes that suffer from extreme dot gain, such as dye sublimation and digital textile printing, and helps maximize the benefit of SoftRIP’s 16-bit color rendering pipeline.
With Wasatch, users can control their dye-sublimation printing process with a number of specialized tools. SoftRIP has easy-to-use controls that allow users to adjust saturation and print pure colors; the option for users to adjust ICC input and output profiles directly in the Color Transforms screen; and the Color Atlas Generator that allows users to print a range of color swatches on their target media and use SoftRIP’s Spot Color Replacement tool to enter RGB values for exact color matching.
SoftRIP users can choose to mirror their prints in the Print Setup window or by printing directly to a hot folder that will automatically mirror, rotate, or resize every file it receives. And, with SoftRIP’s Variable Data Printing Option, users can streamline the production of customized print runs, such as sportswear, soft signage, customized promotional items, banners, flags, accessories, and corporate merchandise.
Wasatch also offers the specialized tools users need for digital textile printing. With Wasatch SoftRIP TX, users can customize their repeats with advanced drop and slide controls and independent stretch and offset controls, making the layout of roll fabrics quick and easy. SoftRIP TX also uses special halftoning and re-sampling algorithms to ensure seamless repeats; allows users to RIP a single pattern and efficiently repeat it in the software; and provides robust color management tools for maximum quality control.
With features tailored for the dye-sublimation and digital textile printing markets, simple setup, intuitive workflow tools, and powerful print controls, Wasatch SoftRIP provides a complete solution for the extensive range of applications that can be supported by the Epson SureColor® F-Series printers.
