Calderas announces RIP Software Version 14

Caldera Version 14

Caldera launched Version 14 of its award-winning RIP software, bringing a range of new features and enhancements to its print management and workflow software. The benefits include increased production capacity, decreased downtime, significant time-savings, enhanced automation, and improved print quality.

This latest edition of Caldera RIP software focuses on providing better workflows and hotfolders. The result for users is increased production capacity and minimized downtime, the company claims. The parallelization of hotfolder queries means not only a time saving of 35% on PDF workflows but also up to 60% faster TIFF workflows for industrial and textile printers, the company says.

Version 14 includes several features exclusive to CalderaCare customers, such as linking file-based workflows to the RIP and PrimeCenter, Caldera’s new production automation solution.

Other new features include QuickConfig, which reduces the time spent managing configurations by offering extra flexibility when submitting jobs from the ImageBar. Version 14 supports 42 new print drivers and three new roll cutter drivers, as well as updates to macOS Version 11.0 Big Sur. CalderaCare users who invested in automated trimming further benefit from the Fotoba Automatic Slicing Positioning. Furthermore, patch detection for the latest X-Rite i1Pro3 and i1i03 spectrophotometer has also been enhanced.

“With increased production, workflow boosts of up to 35%, multiple time-savings and the automation of DSP, there really is no reason not to upgrade to Caldera Version 14 or subscribe to CalderaCare,” said Samin Sarkar, General Manager, Caldera. “Caldera continues to maintain our commitment to putting our customers’ priorities at the heart of everything we do.”
