Spot color matching technology provides accuracy to entire installed base

Xitron, the leading independentdeveloper of RIP and workflow products for commercial, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing is now shipping their Navigator Northstar RIP and workflow in support of OKI 931 and 941 color production printers. Designed to provide spot color matching capability, the workflow makes it possible for OKI users to quickly and accurately reproduce spot color elements within production jobs.

One of the hardest things to do with a CMYK printer is to replicate the palettes used by designers and brand builders in the creation of their artwork,” said Eric NelsenVice President of Product Development at Xitron. Yet, it’s extremely critical to get it right regardless of run length or output device. The addition of this inexpensive software will give OKI users precisely the control they have been looking for.

Navigator Northstar comes as a complete package that includes the Navigator RIP and color matching workflow component, ready to install in the customer’s shop. Accessible through any Mac or PC currently printing to the OKI, the software is simple, intuitive, and accurate. It uses drag-and-drop as well as “print-to” functionality allowing the user to print and match spot colors before committing to a multiple copy run.

According to Nelsen, users who previously purchased the Harlequin Multi-RIP Server option with their OKI, can add the Northstar color matching workflow almost seamlessly. “Doing so will advance theirHarlequin RIP technology to the next level of color accuracy, giving customers the fidelity they expected all along.

Xitron is demonstrating Navigator Northstar on their stand (15/C54-4) at Drupa in Dusseldorf, Germany through June 10th. It is available for immediate purchase and shipment through Xitron dealers worldwide. To locate a Xitron dealer, go to
