plans on releasing its RIP (Raster Image Processor) product line and advanced DigiPage ROOM workflow solution for Mac OS X. However, no exact date has given as to when each product will be released.
DigiPage can produce plate-ready files, complete with dot-for-dot color composite proofing files, that are compatible with most imagesetters, CTP devices, and digital proofers on the market. The initial release of DigiPage on Mac OS X will include support for PDF 1.4, including transparency layers, PDF/X-1A, PDF/X-3 and JBIG2.
Also coming to Mac OS X are the TrapPro in-RIP trapping solution, TIFF/IT-P1 file processing and file generation, ColorPro color management, CIP3 data export support, and a selection of proofing drivers. Trap Pro is Fusion Systems’ object-based trapping engine that handles trapping automatically, as a page is processed in the digital prepress workflow.
ColorPro is a color solution for the Fusion RIP (the core RIP used in DigiPage and ColorRay). ColorRay is a high-speed, integrated RIP for large format printers, plotters and proofers.
