EFI and Konica Minolta have just announced the launch of two new Fiery RIPs, the IC-308 and IC-415. They have been developped to run Konica Minolta's new bizhub PRESS C1060, C1070 and C1070P range of digital presses. The IC-308 supports SIG and EFI's web-to-print apps.
EFI also recently launched another Fiery RIP, the EB-32 DFE, which is intended to improve image quality and improve management of the new Ricoh monochrome production digital presses, the Pro 8100s, 8100EX, 8110s and 8120s. The EB-32 DFE includes Fiery Grayscale Calibration, which automatically measures and corrects tonal variances in monochrome images. People with Fiery RIPs on color presses connect this Digital Front End to the workflow manamgement systems in exactly the same way.
Both of these new Fiery RIPs are based on the Fiery FS1000Pro, which has numerous advanced features, high-quality imaging as well as tools which can improve automatic workflows and overall productivity.
