AGIS RIP Software Training And Troubleshooting
If you’re looking for RIP software training and troubleshooting, then you’ve come the right place. Our specialized team are here to share their knowledge and experience and to help you with all your RIP needs.
RIP stands for ‘raster image processor’. RIP software is vital for printing documents and images; the format of your documents and images must be altered before they can be received by a printer. More specifically, RIPs convert your images from vector graphics statements to raster graphics images or bitmaps. In many cases, RIP software can be purchased alongside your printer, and in more advanced printers, RIP software will be built-in to your machine.
RIPs software is commonly used with laser printers, and allows the vector form of your documents to be transferred to your printer in a printable format. RIPs can also be used to enlarge images whilst retaining the clarity and resolution of the original file. For large format printing and scanning, this is a vital function and without the special algorithms (such as ‘error diffusion’ and ‘scholastic’, for example), this is not possible. If you are having trouble and are looking for RIP software training and troubleshooting, AGIS is here to serve.
RIP software training and troubleshooting-Vector graphics: converting via a RIP
RIPs convert vector images into high-resolution ones. In order to convert vector graphics into printer-friendly formats, an RIP must translate the information into a language that the output mode (your printer or monitor) understands.
Most of your to-be-printed documents will be coming from vector graphics programs. These include programs such as CoreDlRAW and Adobe Illustrator. Programs such as these use 2D spatial references to create images, but these ‘objects’ can only be stored by computer memory.
Because vector graphics are stored using algorithms, they can be easily re-scaled. They can also be saved in small formats to minimize the memory required to store them. Importantly, this also means that vector graphics can be converted to raster graphics or bitmaps (via your RIP). However, if you’re using programs which store images directly in these forms, then resolution information is stored as part of the file. Programs which store images directly in this raster or bitmap format include Photoshop as well as images captured by scanners. Sometimes users run into trouble, which is why AGIS is here to offer RIP software training and troubleshooting at an affordable rate.
One of the greatest advantages of an RIP processor is the fact that it is able to retain the dot size and thus the resolution of the original image. This is due to its ability to retune and properly calibrate the size of dots as well control the ink density. RIPs can also refer to something not entirely unrelated: the software required for controlling ink deposit on different printing mediums, such as photographic paper, untreated paper and even plastic.
RIPs are useful for several other reasons, too. If you require a mass production of printed documents, then an RIP will ensure that the color is consistent for all copies. It can also allow you to print on multiple printers of your printer network simultaneously, create proofs or simulate an offset press, override the printer driver and allow you to have several images on the same document.
