Harlequin MultiRIP Logo

Upgrade to Version 12 of the Harlequin RIP® to enjoy even faster performance and a new range of productivity features for your print shop. Whether you're an existing Harlequin RIP user or want to switch from your existing product to using Harlequin MultiRIP 12 you can Try Before You Buy. So why not give your supplier a call now or complete and submit the form? The Harlequin RIP continues to outpace other RIPs in its processing speeds and flexibility. You can use it to drive your CtP, proofing devices, digital presses and wide format printers. It offers you workflow options that run inside the RIP rather than on separate applications, saving you time and money.

And it processes PDF and PostScript® natively in one RIP engine (as well as TIFF™, JPEG), so handling mixed workflows with consistent output is easy because print shops can use the same screening and color management across all files.

The developers of the Harlequin RIP take pride in providing you with the features and added efficiencies that you need across all your pre-press and printing operations. It is simple to use and provides you with one common operating environment which means that your operator training costs are kept under control.

Native PDF processing: no need to flatten transparency
Native PDF, PostScript, and XPS processing
The Harlequin RIP has processed PostScript files natively since 1988 and PDF files natively since 1997, including rendering of live PDF transparency since 2002. It also processes XPS, the print and document format from Microsoft natively.

The Harlequin RIP has a rich feature set which includes many pre-press processes which are normally run on separate applications, giving workflow functionality. By reducing the requirement for additional applications, the Harlequin RIP increases efficiency and reduces costs.

Upgrade now to Harlequin MultiRIP 12 and experience the difference it will make to your print operation!
