Harlequin RIP Features

Exceptional Halftone 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.

Print Directly to the RIP
Users can quickly create shared printers at the RIP which can then be accessed from other Windows or Macintosh systems on the network. The RIP software also includes the latest RTI Postscript Printer Description (PPD) for loading on to design stations or the RIP. This universal printer description is designed to work with all of our supported output devices.
Learn more about creating shared printers at the RIP.

Drag and Drop files into Spoolfolders
Do you have PDF, PS, EPS, XPS, or TIFF files that are ready for processing? The RTI Harlequin RIP allows users to drag and drop supported file formats directly into a shared spoolfolder for processing.
Learn more about shared spoolfolders.

Supports Multiple File Formats
Process a variety of file formats directly including PDF, PS, EPS, XPS, TIFF and more. Natively process the latest PDF and PostScript® Level 3 data with full compatibility from the latest design and printing applications.
Learn more about processing files directly.

Spot Color Matching
Easily control and edit color output for exact matching of Pantone Spot Colors.
Learn more about Spot Color Editor.

Precisely Calibrate Your Output
With the RTI Harlequin RIP you can calibrate your output devices using the built-in calibration manager. The RIP also includes color and monochrome calibration targets to help you perfectly linearize your output devices.
Learn more about the built-in calibration tools.

Highlight Areas Done Right
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%.
Learn how our minimum dot control feature can help improve your output.

Pantone Plus Support for Extremely Accurate Color
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.

Certified PDF Processing
When enabled the control strip feature will verify that proofs and prints made from files transmitted as PDF/X have rendered correctly.
Learn more about the Control Strip and PDF verification.

Built-in Proofing Capability
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.
Learn about PDF Proofs.

Variable Data
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.
