    what is the best large format RIP in your opinion?

    Hi all, being a large format printer, and having used different RIP's, I just wanted to see what the general feeling was amongst fellow RIP users. I currently use Shiraz and Rasterlink Pro. I have had a little play with Onyx and Wasatch, but don't know them as well as the first two mentioned. Come on guys, give me your input...

    I think the technology bestcollor (EFI XF) is superior to maximize the print quality.

    If I had some colleagues with the same type of plotter (with different RIPs), could make an impression, and someone compare.

    - I have a ColorPainter H74-S - (PhotoPRINT SE 6.1 v2)

    (sorry, google translator)

    I haven't used Wasatch, but I am familiar with Onyx and Versaworks. I prefer Onyx.

    There is a Fiery XF from EFI as well. It's Colorproof XF in nature, but configured for wide format (has production option, drivers for specific devices, etc.).

    Hello,

    I have been working with Onyx, wasach and even the venerable Harlequin but for me the best complete solution (speed, features, tools, productivity,...and Price !) is achieved by Caldera Grand Rip.

    Check their website.

    The biggest and most important issue for me is obtaining profiles for media. The media Manufactures seem to only make profiles for Onyx, VersaWorks and Wasatch Softrip. It is difficult to find media profiles for other rips.

    spectro

    EFI is NICE if you have a built in spectro on you plotter, that way you can buy cheap stock and calibrate it EASILY.... i do this all the time, and it saved me lots...

    My favorite rip for proofing on wide format is GMG Colorproof

    Versaworks is quite good if you have a roland

    Caldera is meant to be great for other wide format printing

    I would have to say it's the CGS rip, although it's pricy
