Arkitex Production RIP

The Arkitex Production RIP helps you meet your tight printing deadlines by interpreting PostScript language quickly. Highly compatible and expandable.

Arkitex Production RIP is Agfa’s intelligent workflow solution for today and beyond. It’s always compatible with your files: this software solution is kept up to date with PostScript and PDF, font specifications and image file formats as well as the relative standards from independent bodies.

Arkitex Production RIP is easily expandable. Advanced screening? Color management? Trapping? All these options can be added.

Arkitex comes with a RIP-based system called RIPDrive, which allows you to integrate Arkitex Production RIP and Arkitex NewsDrive on the same platform. This creates a very compact and effective mini-workflow system running an Agfa recorder.
