Graphics software and printer/plotter driver maker Microspot Ltd. today announced plans to launch the Microspot X-RIP Developer Program at Apple’s Worldwide developer Conference (WWDC). The company explained that the program would provide its members with the opportunity to test their application software with the latest Mac printer drivers from Microspot.
Members of the program are required to supply a full copy of their software applications for testing, and members receive a copy of Microspot X-RIP for their own test purposes. The X-RIP software is a professional Mac OS X printer driver designed for near-photographic output on various large format printers.
X-RIP is designed for CAD, technical illustration, graphics, publishing and photographic images. It’s native for Mac OS X, so it takes advantage of features like protected memory and pre-emptive multi-tasking, according to the developer. It’s also highly configurable.
X-RIP supports high-res printers up to 1200 dots per inch, and also supports direct USB and USB-to-Parallel converters. Support is included for roll-feed printers and media support up to 60 inches wide.
Microspot encourages developers interested in the X-RIP Developer Program to visit the company’s booth at WWDC, or to e-mail them.
