Software developer Onyx Graphics has launched Onyx 12.2, the latest version of its wide-format print workflow and RIP product.
Highlights of the updated software, which builds on Onyx 12.1, include a new multi-roll user interface that delivers an interactive workflow showing a live view of loaded media with automated roll selection between jobs in the RIP-queue.
Enhanced media and page size handling streamlines printer configurations and job setup while a new user interface shows device specific information based on bi-directional data, including easily visible ink levels, printer status and media information.
Cutting workflow updates include the ability to handle multiple cut-path prefixes and duplication of cutter device settings, for greater automation, while there are also faster RIP and data transfer speeds with optimised colour calculations across all applications.
Furthermore, Onyx 12.2 is said to offer reduced time in production and streamlined workflows, with job scaling and rotation directly from the file-open dialogue before sending jobs to the RIP-queue.
The software also fully supports the Konica Minolta Autoscan Spectrophoto-meter FD-9 colour device, which is said to offer fast and flexible fully-automated chart reading to improve print workflow and productivity.
Onyx Graphics director of product marketing Bryan Manwaring said Onyx 12.2 can help users to achieve more predictable print output, minimise waste and maximise productivity and profit.
