Caldera offers a portal to the future
Caldera is inviting visitors to FESPA 2015 to make contact with its array of futuristic solutions for display production on Stand T80 in Hall 6.
Amongst its cosmos of software-led options is the newly updated, faster-than-light Caldera RIP V10.1, the stellar VariableDisplay digital signage package and Flow+, which connects a constellation of software to create the unified, automated workflow that businesses need to travel at warp speed.
The European software manufacturer has incorporated the newest upgrade of the Adobe PDF Print Engine in its latest version. V10.1’s inclusion of APPE3.7 will teleport sign and print companies’ production capabilities into a new landscape of efficiency and automation, featuring 64-bit implementation for improved PDF compliance and astronomical performance with transparencies and colour rendering. Additionally, Caldera reveals that it has broken the barrier of 1,000 different printer drivers, making it one of the most diverse RIP options on the market today.
Other additions to the V10.1 control suite include algorithmic enhancement for processing raster graphics and spot colours. Those using advanced computing solutions, such as Caldera’s dedicated C4 hardware platform, can expect RIP speeds for files with these elements to improve by more than four times. Additional support is also in place for the Kala XY cutter range, as well as better handling of print-to-cut output. New markers can be placed between images for flat-bed cutting, interacting with Caldera’s existing Compose, Nest-O-Matik and Step&Repeat tools,thus reducing the wastage from cut jobs significantly.
Those with a thirst for knowledge about the visual communications market will be invited to take home a copy of Caldera’s pioneering thought-leadership magazine Gamut. Now on its third edition, this is a user manual for the future of print, with experts from both Caldera and the industry at large sharing their thoughts on display production, industrial and textile print, and digital signage.
Also on hand to discuss customer requirements are Caldera’s dedicated engineers, the Solutions Integration Department. Armed with Nexio, the JDF/JMF connector, departmental director Patrick Zimmerman and his team will be able to solve any number of user issues.
