Features Premedia Software
ColorGATE Launches v8.0

December 17, 2013  By PrintAction Staff

Version 8 of the ColorGATE RIP software line, primarily applied in large-format printing, is now available with integration of the recently released Adobe PDF Print Engine 3.1. This includes new versions of ColorGATE Productionserver, Filmgate, Plategate and Proofgate.

Additionally, the Container+ function, the Linearization Assistant, the Profiler Module PFM and the CutServer have been updated with new functions, while the selection of the media size is now open to user defined changes.

With the new Container+, ColorGATE has enhanced nesting functions by adding centering containers and margins for containers without being limited to a certain size. Jobs can now be arranged according to preset or user-defined criteria with the ordered nesting option.
The Linearization Assistant and Profiler Module PFM support simultaneous linearization or profiling processes at the same time. The new presets for ink splitting curves are ranging from smoother print results up to the possibility to reduce the amount of ink used.
Improved control options for cut and perforation lines are now available through the added zoom function in the CutServer. It is available in the preview window, which has been enhanced with new illustrated cut and perforation lines. The cut directions are now displayed as vectors. The information overview of the file list, according to ColorGATE, is now more detailed.
In the job setting functions, it is now possible to set user-defined media sizes. The new dialogue saves these user defined sizes in the printer definition (COS file) automatically to be valid for the current printer queue. In addition, the complete list can be exported and re-imported to a different printer queue/RIP installation.
