Fusion Announces RIP Line for Mac OS X

Releases to include DigiPage and layered options By Dave Nagel
Fusion Systems, a developer of Unix-based raster image processing applications, says it's planning to release its RIP product line and DigiPage ROOM (render once, output many) workflow for Mac OS X.

DigiPage is a ROOM workflow that identifies file problems in advance of making film or final plates. It provides early detection of hidden problems commonly not detected in PDF and PDF/X-1A files until a press proof is made. It can produce plate-ready files, complete with dot for dot color composite proofing files, that are compatible with the common imagesetters, CTP devices and digital proofers.

According to Fusion, the initial release of DigiPage for Mac OS X will include extensive support for PDF 1.4, including Transparency layers, PDF/X-1A, PDF/X-3 and JBIG2. There will also be a range of layered options available, including TrapPro, TIFF/IT-P1, ColorPro, CIP3 and a full selection of proofing drivers.

TrapPro is an in-RIP trapping solution that handles trapping automatically. TIFF/IT-P1 is a utility for file processing and file generation. ColorPro is a color component for the Fusion RIP (the core of the DigiPage RIP) for advanced color management for proofing an emulation. And CIP3 is a utility that provides data export support.
