RIPs & RIP Software Solutions

A RIP (raster image processor) is a solution used in a printing system to create a 'raster' image also known as a bitmap. This bitmap is used by the printing system to produce the printed output.

The original input file may be a PostScript, PDF, Tiff, or Jpg type image file. The input can be or include bitmaps of higher or lower resolution than the output device, which the RIP resizes using an image scaling algorithm.

Rip software, used with your chosen printer/s, specifc media with ICC profiles and selected print settings, ensures the accurate management of multiple print/ printer workflows.

Tetenal currently supply and support both Mirage and Onyx RIP solutions.

Mirage RIPs

Work fast and efficiently in the Mirage RIPs intuitive user interface.

Using the comprehensive and easy to use interface, the user can select specific media and printer settings (once stored) so giving simple management of multiple print workflows and environments.

With all the required print settings available to the user, in the single/ window, Mirage makes printing very fast and easy.
