TIFF RIP-Kit for Windows

The TIFF RIP-Kit is based on the Harlequin RIP and has the ability to output 1-bit or 8-bit TIFF files. This particular RIP can be used to output to a wide variety of output devices including engraving devices, direct-to-screen systems (computer-to-screen systems), digital presses, or used for creating separations for use with other TIFF controlled devices. Our standard TIFF RIP-Kit can output TIFF files from 1-8000 dpi, but higher resolution versions are available. Every TIFF RIP-Kit purchase includes 90 days of free technical support, which also includes remote support.

Minimum Computer Requirements





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.

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

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.

Simplified Job Control
The Harlequin RIP was designed with the end user in mind. The main RIP monitor window gives users access to pertinent job information while the newly redesigned output controller window allows users to manage jobs and control output.
