A RIP program offers a professional wide-format print shop multiple benefits beyond the basic printer driver:
- Saves media and ink cost with advanced ink control and nesting features in many common RIP programs;
- Color profile management for a variety of media, ink technologies, and application purposes;
- Multi-printer management with the ability to print up to four printers from a single computer;
- Faster image processing, which handles a wide variety of file types including high-resolution vector and raster images;
- Upgrade features available to add-on such as variable data printing, automatic color separation and halftone screens, and much more.
