Liberator XE Features & Benefits
NO Harmful Chemicals, NO Darkroom, NO Processing Equipment, NO Inks or Toners
When purchasing a Liberator imagesetter you eliminate the need for hazardous developing and fixing chemicals used in traditional film imagesetting systems. You also save space by eliminating the need for a darkroom which also cuts down on energy costs because the imagesetter does not require a processor.
OYO helps you to deliver those more demanding jobs efficiently while producing full-size film up to 54 inches wide. That is about 4 times bigger than other conventional products currently on the market. OYO’s thermal imagesetter technology offers clear, compact, environmentally friendly solutions to artwork production, enabling you to eliminate outsourcing of large-format films and bring production control in-house. OYO’s unique, chemistry-free, dry-imaging ThermoImpression® film requires absolutely no fixers, developers, inks or toners while providing UV densities that exceed industry standards.
The new high performance OYO 1200 dpi Liberator XE Wide-Format Thermal Imagesetter enables you to produce superb quality film separations right in your own shop without a darkroom, processor or chemicals. Create great looking film positives or film negatives using one machine. It truely is the ultimate film solution for the screen, gravure (engraving), flexo (flexography), textile, POP, sign, banner, corrugated and offset printing markets.
The Liberator XE Series is built using OYO’s latest innovative and proprietary technologies, including: Closed Loop Registration (CLR) control for accurate registration overlay, Multi-Level Pulsing (MLP) for superior dot quality, and Enhanced Nib Management (ENM) to provide smooth, high-quality images every time. Liberator XE ThermoImpression Systems include a new RTI Harlequin® RIP. This forward thinking, trouble-free fully featured RIP is PostScript compatible and is fully compliant with PostScript Level 3 specifications. Each system includes media saving functions and can be customized with trapping, proofing, and specialized screening to fit your requirements. The bottom line: accurate registration, higher performance, versatility and flexibility.

Harlequin Precision Screening
Every RTI Harlequin RIP includes Harlequin Precision Screening (HPS). When placing color separations on top of one another the RIP precisely calculates screen angles and frequencies to avoid moiré patterns. HPS also uses an adaptive screening technique that adjusts each halftone dot so that it is placed within one half pixel of its ideal location. The RIP allows users to control and manage resolutions (dots per inch or dpi), line screens/frequency (lines per inch or lpi), screen angles, dot shapes, scaling, crop marks, mirror image, negative/positive, rotation and much more. Our screening technology is also designed to work with a wide range of printing processes including Flexography, Offset Lithography, Screen Printing, Gravure, Engraving and Digital Printing.

Native PDF, PostScript & XPS
Support for PDF v.1.0 through v.1.7, PDF/X formats, JPEG2000, ISO 32000-1, optional content, cross-reference streams, compressed object streams and 16-bit images. PostScript® Level 3 support also gives users full compatibility with the latest design and printing applications including XPS documents with PrintTickets.

Color Accuracy with Pantone Plus
The Harlequin RIP will ensure optimum use of the output device's color gamut. Pantone Plus support also ensures that emulation of Pantone colors printed using other inks (e.g. CMYK) are as accurate as possible. It is now even easier to achieve consistent, predictable and repeatable color reproduction across any number of devices through tight integration of the RIP with third party closed loop color controls.
Need the fastest performance possible for your variable data print jobs? Harlequin VariData greatly accelerates the printing of variable data jobs that were saved either as PDF/VT or as regular PDF. It is one of the unique features of the Harlequin print engine that gives it amazing power and productivity.
Variable Data Information
Electronic PDF Proofing
Output electronic proofs that accurately represent the final print. The PDF Raster Output feature can be configured to output composite halftone, composite contone or separations.
PDF Proof Information
Hyperthreading & 64-bit Speed
The RTI Harlequin RIP now takes advantage of hyperthreading, multi-core and multiple CPU architectures for faster processing. The 64-bit architecture increases performance by allowing access to more RAM so that even the most complex jobs, rendered at the highest resolutions, can run at full speed.
Built-in Calibration Manager
Calibrate your output devices using the built-in calibration manager. The RIP also includes Genlin which can be used with a supported spectrophotometer to read target data.
Calibration Manager Information
Minimum Dot Control
Users now have the ability to specify a minimum dot which eliminates the harsh edges often seen in highlight areas. This feature will give you great looking highlight areas and allow you to print highlights and perfectly smooth vignettes from 0 through 100%.
Minimum Dot Control Information
Control Strip Verification
When enabled the control strip feature will verify that proofs and prints made from files transmitted as PDF/X have rendered correctly.
