Built around the Harlequin RIP core technology from Global Graphics and the Adobe PDF Print Engine from Adobe Systems, Xitron engineers continue to develop solutions for the graphic arts market, driving hundreds of different models of imagesetters
, proofers, platesetters, inkjet printers, and digital presses.
Xitron RIPs, Workflows, andTIFF Catchers can drive hundreds of the Cotnputer-to-Plate devices, imagesetters
, proofers, digital presses, highspeed copiers, and ink jet printers on the market today.

The chemical-free (also called dry-processing) imagesetters
change the process subtly, near the beginning of the pipeline.
* Lino-Server 5100 (14GB)--Links all color workstations for sharing data and moving files from one output queue to another, thus keeping the traffic load manageable for the imagesetters
Aim of the volume is to provide step-by-step "instructions for getting great-quality images out of your scanners, laser printers, and imagesetters
, using a variety of software."
"Two, new breakthroughs in laser technology have drastically reduced the price of high-resolution printers and imagesetters
capable of printing text in traditional and new typefaces."
