Hyödyllistä tietoa

    Yksityiskohtaiset ominaisuudet

    The ColorPASS GX-300 print controller is a high performance server designed for extensive print on demand applications and where more advanced workflow support is required. It has been designed for optimal results with Canon’s imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9000 PRO Series.

    High performance levels

    The ColorPASS GX-300 utilises state-of-the-art technology to enable extremely fast processing and supports a wide variety of file formats, embracing the diversity of data produced in digital colour production.

    SmartRIP 2 technology uses highly intelligent processing to increase RIP performance, delivering the smoothest lines and crispest text at high resolution. Significant multitasking capabilities also ensure that the ColorPASS GX-300 can concurrently RIP one print job, whilst processing another, for deadline beating results.

    Stunning quality

    Pre-press tasks are aided with the help of ColorWise 3. This next generation colour management system enables extensive colour controls, from calibration to ICC profile management, as well as spot processing and greater processing for printing. When a file has a mixture of CMYK and RGB data, it’s possible to control each type of data independently.

    Outstanding document control tools

    Command Workstation 5, provided with your ColorPASS GX-300 makes light production more intuitive and flexible than ever. It enables centralised job management, connects to servers on the network, and achieves optimal results for increased job productivity. The user-friendly interface features extensive drag-and-drop capabilities; meaning even operators with limited skills can confidently manage sophisticated workflows.

    Hot folders are supported, allowing jobs to be dragged and dropped to folders with pre-configured settings, saving time - particularly when processing more complex jobs. Variable Data Printing workflows can also be established with support for all the industry standard formats.
