On 10 February 2021, Onyx Graphics introduced its new subscription-based RIP solution – Onyx Go. The new subscription model released just after its Onyx 21 RIP is immediately available and offered in two tiers – Onyx Go Lite and Onyx Go Plus. 

As we learned in a recent web meeting with Matt Crawford the Director of Product Marketing at Onyx and other personnel, one of the ideas behind the Go version is to overcome many of the constraints caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and ensuing lockdowns. It enables print service providers to have more downloadable and net-maintainable or upgradeable options at affordable prices. The choice and opportunity to buy the Onyx 21 RIP outright will also remain from what we understood.

The new subscription RIP solution adds to the expansive Onyx portfolio of wide-format digital inkjet software solutions. Onyx Go is designed for print service providers who require the latest technology to meet customer needs. Offered in two product tiers, Onyx Go Lite and Onyx Go Plus, the Plus version includes enhanced color management and production tools, including ICC profiling to fine-tune profiles for output color accuracy and repeatability. It also contains Swatch Books 2.0 for color matching, finishing tools such as Bleed and Grommets to save valuable production time for everyday tasks, and Media Manager to meet the daily challenges faced by today’s print shops.

“Onyx Go brings another product option to our worldwide customer base to help them meet the evolving needs of the wide-format graphics market,” says Kevin Murphy, president and CEO of Onyx Graphics. “It incorporates all the features and functionality ONYX users have come to expect for superior output quality, neatly packaged in a worry-free, affordable monthly subscription.”

Available with soft-key activation providing near-instant access, Onyx Go is a month-to-month, no-contract, full-featured Onyx RIP solution with up to four Adobe PDF Print Engines (APPE). Its Job Editor helps signage printers and service providers in editing files before printing. There is unlimited roll-to-roll cutter support for complete print-and-cut workflows, and each RIP supports up to two printers.

Highlights of Onyx Go include –
• ICC profiling and Media Manager
• Up to four Adobe PDF Print Engines
• Support for up to two printers
• Unlimited roll-to-roll cutter support
• Automated Print-and-Cut workflows

Onyx Go is available now as a monthly subscription through Authorized ONYX Resellers and the new ONYX Web Store. Onyx Go is open to all existing Onyx users and other customers through a license subscription. Global channel partnerships and longstanding relationships with printer manufacturers position the company as a market leader in powerful, reliable, large format printing workflow software. Its passion for delivering superb color led to Onyx Color’s development, Onyx Graphics’ color engine optimized specifically for large format inkjet printing. The company has numerous distributors in India and the region. Visit www.onyxgfx.com for more information.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
