    Delta Tower is a hardware RIP

    Since the Delta Tower is a hardware type and not a software type of RIP, it's impossible to install something in it (since it is not a typical CPU). If you mean the CPU server where the Delta software is installed, yes you can install a different RIP software on that but it would be better if you reformat your hard disks and reinstall the whole server operating system to completely delete the old Delta RIP.

    Hi,

    Correct, Delta Tower is a hardware screening generator for the Delta List that generated by RIP-ping process in Delta Technology software from HDM (or Linotype-Hell).

    The only thing to replace Delta Tower is using Speedway Taxi for the HDM imagesetter which using Speedway Taxi interface and Speedway LVDS which using Speedway LVDS interface. But the RIP also need to change to HDM Metadimension.

    Or as saifou said it is possible to use third party Harlequin Based RIP (Xitron or Torrent) but you need the interface.

    delta tower work only with deltarip
    and not all delta rip are compatible with delta tower
    some delta rip use speedway board direct without delta tower
    u need taxi speedway board to run meta with hercules
    for xitron u need spcial board to run hqrip

    Delta S/W Rip with Speedway Taxi Interface was not for Herkules Basic, it can only drive Quasar, Herkules, and Herkules Pro.
    You can use Metadimension RIP with Speedway Taxi Interface, but pay attention that the Speedway Taxi interface that use Delta S/W Rip is not the same with the one use by Metadimension.

    You cannot use Delta S/W RIP since it only use Windows NT 4.0 while Metadimension use Win2000, Windows 2003, and the latest version use Win2008 with 64 bit.

    Like saifou said, you can use Harlequin based RIP like Xitron and Torrent but they will supply you with special interface also.

    Sorry... S/W means software while H/W mean hardware.... ;-)

    For Delta RIP with Delta Tower, as far as I know, start from version 8.0, Heidelberg used Windows 2000 Server Standard edition and also Windows 2003 Server Standard edition. And the last version is Delta RIP v.8.7. and the development was stopped.

    There is a RIP called Delta S/W RIP which don't have Delta Tower but all the user interface is exactly the same with Delta RIP, only that the software was not a successful product (it only come up to v.1.3 and runs at Windows NT 4) and it was not developed anymore. The limitation is only up to 3386 dpi and no Delta List concept.

    And at the same time Heidelberg also have Metadimension as the successor of Delta RIP. They have changed the Delta Tower with Speedway interface. The Speedway Taxi interface is used for the older setter, and the Speedway LVDS interface is used for the newer setter which is mostly CtP (Prosetter and Suprasetter), the only setter that can use Speedway LVDS interface is Primesetter (CtF).

    Internally Heidelberg adapt the Delta RIP concept, only the user interface is different, and more enhanced for CtP and workflow management system.

    Information about Metadimension can be found in Heidelberg web site (www.heidelberg.com)
