French RIP software specialist Caldera has announced RIP certification and support for the new HP STITCH series of printers, having developed TextilePRO printer drivers specifically for the range. The new and intuitive workflow suite has been designed to enable fast, precise textile printing that will cut down on waste and error, resulting in more profitable production.
TextilePRO is Caldera’s intuitive production suite for textile printers. It will give HP STITCH users the ability to control, color, ink and substrates at the touch of a button and includes features that create a more efficient workflow by minimising waste. The TextilePRO RGB Workflow keeps all colors in RGB to guarantee full fidelity to the original, and there is a choice of generation methods for blacks to achieve the richness and texture required by the fashion market.
Other TextilePRO features include Step & Repeat Textile for the creation of repeatable aligned patterns and Color Management to ensure the most accurate and consistent color matches across the full production cycle.
According to Caldera’s Vice President Marketing and Communication, Sebastien Hanssens, “In TextilePRO, we believe we have a great RIP solution for digital textile printing – it’s intuitive to use and results in excellent color reproduction and a highly-efficient workflow. Our objective is to offer the leading software solution for the digital textile printing market.” With new developments and more advanced devices coming to the market, Caldera is positioning its textile RIP suites as the reference RIP products for this sector. “As always,” says Sebastien, “the development of our products is driven by what will make the best user experience for our customers. The new HP STITCH series is a step forward in dye-sublimation printing and Caldera is delighted to be offering a custom-designed RIP product for the range.”
