Roland DG Offers New VersaWorks Dual RIP Free for Owners

Hamamatsu, Japan, January 31, 2017 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, today announced that its Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP and print management software is now available free of charge for customers of several previous models.

Roland VersaWorks Dual builds upon the intuitive, easy-to-use capabilities of Roland VersaWorks to provide high-quality printing while adding enhanced processing and editing functions. Roland VersaWorks Dual enables users to work not only with PostScript® files, but also allows for native processing of PDF files to ensure transparency effects are processed accurately. In addition, white or clear ink data can be generated easily in the RIP, ideal for use in producing transparent window graphics, stickers and personalized accessories with special effects. The position and size of special color data can also be adjusted in the RIP for perfect registration. Features like rotation and mirroring of the data can be configured in the RIP as well, without the need to return to graphic design software. For LEF users, the newly available Maintain Clipped Position function is included which enables you to print designated images only. This feature is useful when extra processes such as clear effects are required for printing specific items.

“A major benefit for Roland customers,” said Akinaga Nozawa, product manager of Roland DG’s digital printing business, “is that our software is tailored exclusively for Roland DG printers and printer/cutters, and thus optimized to maximize their performance and ease of use. Our proprietary color management tools and other functions have become important factors in the popularity of Roland products worldwide.”

“Now that Roland VersaWorks Dual supports native PDF processing,” Nozawa continued, “we believe our printers provide an even greater level of value for not only the printing of signs and graphics, but for decorating a wide range of original goods and for prototyping applications such as package printing and press proofs. We are committed to developing powerful, world-class RIP software that makes customers’ work even easier, while expanding their creative potential.”

The software is now available for the following models:
- VersaCAMM VS-640i/540i/300i, SP-540i/300i
- VersaSTUDIO BN-20
- VersaEXPRESS RF-640
- VersaUV LEJ-640, LEC-540/330, LEF-20/12
- Texart RT-640
