Onyx 12.2 now released
The latest version of Onyx Graphics' software features improved RIP and data transfer processing speeds, new multi-roll functionality, job scaling and rotation, and cut workflow enhancements.
Highlights of the new software include: a new multi-roll user interface that delivers an interactive workflow showing a live view of loaded media with automated roll selection between jobs in the RIP-queue, and enhanced media and page size handling to streamline printer configurations and job setup.
A new user-interface shows device-specific information based on bi-directional data including easily visible ink levels, printer status and media information.
Cutting workflow updates include the ability to handle multiple cut-path prefixes and duplication of cutter device settings, enabling greater automation. Production time is reduced and workflows are streamlined with job scaling and rotation directly from the file-open dialogue before sending jobs to the RIP-queue.
There is full support for the Konica Minolta Autoscan Spectrophotometer FD-9 colour device, touting fast and flexible fully automated chart reading to improve print workflow and productivity, designed for colour management and large industrial print shops. RIP and data transfer speeds are faster, with optimised colour calculations across all applications.
Version 12.2 is available for the full Onyx software product line including Thrive workflow software and ProductionHouse, PosterShop and RIPCenter RIP software. The new software is available to order now.
