In-RIP automated trapping option
Trapping color jobs, whether 4-color process or multiple spot colors, can be labor intensive and time consuming. Xitron’s Navigator RIP offers an optional in-RIP trapping engine called TrapPro™that reduces or eliminates both labor and time from the trapping process.PostScript 3® interpreter, Navigator is fully compatible with the most popular software packages used in the graphic arts industry today. Whether your production requires throughput of PostScript, PDF, TIFF, EPS, or even PDF/X, Navigator supports you.
TrapPro uses an object-based, raster-aware engine that delivers outstanding performance and excellent memory utilization. This trapping engine uses the Device-Oriented Display List generated by the Navigator RIP to determine trap positions. This allows the system to trap everything the RIP renders with pixel accuracy and great speed.
TrapPro runs automatically as the jobs are sent to the RIP. The Navigator RIP saves trap settings for use in different page setups, reducing operator prep time and providing increased automation. Using the Navigator RIP Manager, users can preview (softproof) the results prior to committing the job to film or plate. TrapPro has features top printers and publishers demand including mitered ends and joins, sliding traps, feathered traps, small object protection and more.
