On 1 July 2019, Onyx Graphics announced the global availability of Onyx 19, the newest version release of the company’s wide-format RIP and print workflow software.
Introducing the Spark Engine and DeviceLink+, Onyx 19 brings new technologies to go bigger, bolder and beyond the limitations of wide-format print for all print applications, including soft-signage and textile. The Spark Engine is a new performance platform bringing RIP speed increases up to 400% and printer performance increases up to 200%. DeviceLink+ is an all-new system of easy-to-use color management controls to achieve consistent color across an entire site without the need to read in new swatches or use a color measurement device.
“We’re amazed at the response Onyx 19 received at our FESPA announcement last month,” said Bryan Manwaring, director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics. “Customers are already seeing the Spark Engine at work through increased production capacity while DeviceLink+ is creating new possibilities to achieve outstanding color output that can all be automated at the click of a button.”
Onyx 19 also introduced new Step and Repeat functionality for a 600% performance increase. New dot pattern technology for the smoothest output on all wide format print applications, including soft-signage and textile. Nest trim box features have been added for weeding and finishing print and cut jobs. It is the first and only solution to provide the ability to build iccMAX v5 profiles. Coupled with the latest Adobe PDF Print Engine (APPE) 5.1, the software is a good combination for any print application.
The new software – covering the entire product portfolio of Onyx solutions including Onyx Thrive print workflow, and Onyx RIP products including Onyx PosterShop, and Onyx RIPCenter – is now available to all Onyx Advantage customers by requesting a key update and to all other customers through a license purchase.
