Onyx Graphics Inc. released ONYX 12.2 software, the latest version of the company’s wide format print workflow and RIP products. The company explains ONYX 12.2 features improved RIP and data transfer processing speeds, new multi-roll functionality, job scaling and rotation, and cut workflow enhancements.

ONYX 12.2 software is available for the full ONYX software product line including ONYX Thrive workflow software; and ONYX ProductionHouse, ONYX PosterShop and ONYX RIPCenter RIP software.

The company explains the new multi-roll user interface delivers an interactive workflow showing a live view of loaded media with automated roll selection between jobs in the RIP-queue. ONYX 12.2 also features a new user-interface showing device specific information based on bi-directional data including, easily visible ink levels, printer status and media information.

The new software version also includes enhanced media and page-size handling to streamline printer configurations and job setup. Cutting workflow updates include the ability to handle multiple cut-path prefixes and duplication of cutter device settings enabling greater automation. ONYX 12.2 also allows for job scaling and rotation directly from the file-open dialogue before sending jobs to the RIP-queue.
 
The software provides full support for the Konica Minolta Autoscan Spectrophotometer FD-9 colour device, with fully automated chart reading to improve print workflow and productivity. The new software version’s faster RIP and data transfer speeds are based on optimized colour calculations across all applications.
