Onyx Graphics launches Onyx 12.1

Software developer Onyx Graphics has released Onyx 12.1 software, the latest version of its wide-format print workflow and RIP product.

The software builds on Onyx 12, which was shown in Europe for the first time at FESPA Digital last year, by offering accelerated speed and performance, a simplified user interface, enhanced automation and advanced finishing tools.

Onyx 12.1 is available for the full Onyx software product line including Onyx Thrive workflow, Onyx ProductionHouse, Onyx PosterShop and Onyx RIPCenter RIP software.

Highlights of Onyx 12.1 include the ability to process more files in less time with a full 64-bit platform for RIP and applications, with speeds that can improve a user’s profit margin by as much as 30%.

On average, processing times in Onyx 12.1 are three times faster than in Onyx 12 for halftone processing. Data transfer speeds to many grand-format printers are also up to three times faster.

According to the company, users can also achieve a higher level of colour consistency across multiple devices with integrated G7 correction, verification and iterations, making it easier to match colour and build output consistency.

Additional automation tools also help to eliminate bottlenecks and save time while enhanced tiling, combined with other job preparation tools, is said to enable a wide variety of print applications.

Onyx 12.1 also improves device support including QR codes in Zünd Cut Center and support for additional colour devices from Konica Minolta and X-Rite.

“With Onyx Thrive and the new Onyx 12.1, we have seen huge speed improvements and we are now able to maintain G7 color consistency on all devices, from latex to dye-sub fabric, for predictable output throughout our company,” said Josh Bevans, CEO of Design To Print. “This makes our clients very happy!”

“Supporting a wide variety of print technologies and managing digital printing onto a variety of substrates, Onyx remains critical in the industrial printing process," said Onyx Graphics director of product marketing Bryan Manwaring to Printweek.

“We specialise in helping companies increase their manufacturing productivity through providing the ability to digitally print across a variety of substrates including wood, metal, textile, ceramics, plastics and more.”

FESPA will support this ongoing drive for further growth and success with its series of events, including the main FESPA 2017 event, which will run from May 8-12 in Hamburg, Germany. The show will welcome many of the industry’s key players, each of which will be showing off their latest solutions designed to add more value to print companies.
