Screen Printing Film Positives:

Built-In Density Curves for Specific Film Media
MultiRIP is not a film brand specific RIP software program. We provide built-in density curves - calibrated specific ink setting made specific for the coating on the printable side of the film media to provide dark, dense prints without putting too much ink.

Print Directly from Your Favourite Artwork Program
MultiRIP will work with any graphic artwork program (i.e. CorelDraw, PhotoShop, Illustrator,...) that you can print from. MultiRIP will install an independent driver that allows your settings in your graphic artwork program (i.e. the size, shape and angle of your halftones) to print directly through the RIP software.

Halftone Screening
MultiRIP allows the use of halftone screening, thus turning your inkjet printer into a low-cost imagesetter. You can specify the screen frequency/angle at print time or you can select from one of our pre-defined screen ruling sets. MultiRIP comes with custom density curves for eight different types of film positive media.

Print Composite Proofs From Pre-separated PostScript files
MultiRIP allows you to print composite pages from PostScript separation files. This feature is very useful, as you can use the composite output to check for trapping and moire, or simply use it as a proof to show the customer. If using halftone screening for output, you can select the angle and frequency for CMYK and spot colours.

Print Separations from Composite PostScript or PDF files
MultiRIP allows you to print CMYK separations from a composite PostScript files or PDF files. If using halftone screening for output, you can specify the angle and frequency for the CMYK separations.

Density Calibration
MultiRIP includes our Q-Curve™ utility which will allow you to apply a density curve to your composite or separated job. You can curve the colour plates individually or apply the same curve to all. You can use the graphical curve interface or enter the desired density numbers.

Dye Sublimation Transfers:

Easy Dye Sub Printer Feature
MultiRIP has an Easy Dye Sub Printer selection that allows you to print polyester fabric with a one click selection.

Colour Profiled for Maximum Colour and Brightness
MultiRIP has been profiled for the three main types of dye sublimation inks from Sawgrass Systems - subli-trans, ArTainium and SubliJet IQ Inks.

Dye sublimation inks are very much different than your standard Epson inks. Sublimation inks are an encapsulated ink – which means the way they look printed on the release paper looks completely different than after being transferred to the substrate. MultiRIP has profiled the different types of sublimation substrates to provide you with the bright colours. Below is a list of the different substrates and resolutions that have been colour profiled:

  • Polyester Fabric – Normal, Enhanced & Fine
  • Mouse pads – Normal & Enhanced
  • Ceramic Tile - Enhanced
  • Metal – Enhanced & Fine
  • Glass Tile - Enhanced

Calibrated for Proper Ink Usage
Most decorators use print drivers that drop too much ink on to the release paper. To compensate for this, decorators will use a release paper that absorbs more ink quicker so that it does not pool and distort the image. MultiRIP is calibrated to print the appropriate amount of ink on to the release paper to maximize your ink usage and minimize your costs.

Print Spot Colours
To ensure accurate spot colour reproduction you can activate MultiRIP´s "TrueSpot™" you use special logo colours or product colours then you can easily add them to MultiRIP with the Spot Colour function. Just click on Add and type in your special colour. MultiRIP will remember your colour and use it each time it is requested within your application.


Commercial Inkjet Transfers:

Colour Profiled for Maximum Colour and Brightness
Our archival-based pigment inks are specially formulated to offer the best longevity and colour gamut available to produce professional quality photograph prints. These pigment inks are very bright and vivid to make you photographs pop off the page. MultiRIP has seven (7) different heat transfer paper profile settings.

Calibrated for Proper Ink Usage
Most decorators use standard print drivers that drop too much ink on to the transfer paper. To compensate for this, decorators will use a transfer paper that absorbs more ink quicker so that it does not pool and distort the image. MultiRIP is calibrated to print the appropriate amount of ink on to the release paper to maximize your ink usage and minimize your costs.

Borderless Printing
Print borderless like a printing press. You create the bleed and we print on the proper sheet size. The bleed is overprint so you get exact sizing. The Borderless solution from the native printer driver will enlarge your image. This is not what we do; MultiRIP matches the printing press.


General Features:

Page Previewing
You can preview individual pages in both the output queue and the "processed jobs" queue. This can save a lot of time if a mistake is caught before expensive media is wasted.

Job / Page Priority
Allows users to change print priority on a per-job or per-page basis. When manually inserting jobs in the RIP or re-printing jobs that have been ripped; simply use the slide-bar to set values from 1 to 99 (just like Window´s Print Manager) or enter the number by hand. The job or page will then assume it´s new print priority. When printing from applications (Quark, PageMaker, etc.) select the priority in the print settings dialog.

Re-Print Pages without Re-Ripping
Allows you to re-print individual pages or colours from a separation with a few simple clicks of your mouse. Once the job has been processed, simply open the job item in the queue, select the pages you wish to re-send to the printer (1). Select the number of copies (2) and click "Print Selected Pages" (3). The selected pages will be sent to the output queue. When making multiple copies, the pages can be "stacked" (1,1,1, 2,2,2, 3,3,3 etc.) or collated (1,2,3, 1,2,3, etc.).

ICM/ICC Based Colour Management
Supports the use of ICC and ICMs for colour management. The user can select the colour space of the input CMYK and RGB as well as the output ICM if they desire. All media types included with MultiRIP have been pre-linearized and the manual selection of an output profile is seldom needed. If the user has created a custom output profile, however, MultiRIP uses it per your request. You can select the ICC/ICMs at print-time or right at the RIP control panel when manually inserting PostScript or PDF files or re-processing previous jobs. A utility is included in the software which allows you to add ICM name entries into your PPD so that they appear at print-time in the print configuration dialog.

Add Custom Page Sizes
Unlike some applications that limit your designing abilities to set paper sizes, MultiRIP will let you design your own paper size and keep this size in memory for future use. All the standard dye sublimation release transfer paper sizes (A4, A3, US Letter, US Tabloid) are preset.

Print and share your printer over the network
MultiRIP includes a built-in print server that allows you to share your printer over the network. MultiRIP can publish up to 50 print queues across the network. Queues can be published as hot folders, to drag-and-drop PostScript, EPS, or PDF files for printing. Everyone on your network can print to your printer and PDF generator. All MultiRIP active print queues appear as a Chooser level printer selection on the Macintosh network. Share your printer with as many users at no additional charge. There is also no need to purchase additional hardware to share your printer, MultiRIP Professional does it all. 

Print Queue Management
Print queue management allows you to reprint jobs directly from MultiRIP, eliminating the need to return to your application to reprint a file. Change priorities, move the print jobs up or down in the queue, pause or cancel. Hold jobs in the queue for minutes, hours, or weeks, even pause jobs in the queue to print later. Create queues for specific paper, resolution, profile, combinations or create queues to generate PDFs for the web or remote print purposes.  

Recomposite from Separations Feature
Most RIPs used as a proofing device will create incorrect results when trapping, overprinting and transparency features are used. The following sample shows trapping, overprinting and transparency features. These same features are used to show the trapping of colours and the drawing of outlines. Making a recomposite is the only true way of accurately making a colour proof. This feature works great with all popular applications including Quark and PageMaker.
