Quickly Reproduce Desired Colours
When actual printed colours differ from the expected spot colour, a new Patch Generation function automatically generates colours closest to the spot colour. Users can then select their desired colour from the printed alternatives to achieve the results they were expecting faster.
Automatic Spot Colour Replacement
Now you can automatically replace spot colours in an image using SwatchBooks in Ergosoft Roland DG Edition 3. This function eliminates the hassle of replacing spot colours one by one and the resulting errors which can be caused by manual effort.
JobPreset. Regular Jobs Made Faster and More Accurate
A JobPreset is newly added, allowing users to define various job parameters to specific customer requirements and print environments for recurring jobs.
SwatchMatcher. Minimising Colour Differences in Multiple Printers Environments
A Target Printer Simulation function is newly developed to help produce the same colours when using multiple printers with different types of ink or printing modes. Applying the target printer profile and rendering intent to print data can help minimise any colour differences. To reproduce the same colours, the SwatchMatcher Function generates a spot colour library based on measurements of spot colours from other printers.
ErgoSoft Roland DG Edition 3 is filled with features that are designed to automatically optimise your colour output and streamline your workflow:
QueueManager allows custom workspaces and supports advanced custom filters for various views (e.g. by printer or cutter, by media, by PrintQueue/CutQueue, by time range, by text string). Uses pane windows over tiles which provides a better production overview and job management.
- Job Costing / Job Cost Estimation
The Job Costing / Job Cost Estimation calculates the ink, material, and printer cost per Job.
Using the Position Templates you can create a Template Job including placeholders (Image Format, Position etc.) streamlining the production and facilitating the print position. Template Job can be filled with different images and link to your favourite hotfolders.
- Variable Data Basic
Variable Data Basic enables creation of fixed templates with customised text and personalised images that can automatically be added to print jobs – import data from .txt or .csv files.
The Colorbooks option generates printable colour book jobs defined in either RGB or Lab —import industry standard charts from FOGRA and Pantone®.
Quality Control Basic (ColorQPC) monitors and certifies colour accuracy —identifying colour differences and ensuring correct spot colour printing.
- Cut Basic
Cut Basic allows users to run one CutClient for pattern cutting or plotting on paper – combine Roland printers with Roland cutters or other large format cutters.
New Rectangular Image Nesting
Multiple RIP Servers
Instead of one RIP server per license, users are able to RIP up to eight jobs simultaneously.
Unlimited Hot Folders
Hot folders are a quick and easy way to automate the printing process by saving pre-flight results in a hot folder for access anytime. This new feature allows users to create unlimited hot folders for increased production efficiency and consistency.
Background Colour Removal
This option reduces the ink consumption by using the T-Shirts colour in the colour management of your CMYK image. For example, a CMYK image that includes red parts, printed on a red T-Shirt will result in less Magenta and Yellow because the red of the T-Shirt is used instead of the Magenta and Yellow.
