Xitron Announces Release of New Inkjet Plug-in

Inkjet Direct available for version 11 Navigator RIP - supports Epson T-Series

Ann Arbor, MI - February 13, 2016 - Xitron, the leading independent developer of RIP and workflow products for commercial, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing has released a new 64-bit version of its popular Inkjet Direct (IJD) plug-in for the Navigator RIP. Designed for users wanting to output film or printing plates on inkjet devices, the new IJD plug-in builds on the solid foundation first introduced five years ago.

"Xitron was way ahead of the curve with the initial release of IJD back in 2012," said Jeffrey Piestrak, Product Manager at Xitron. "It performed exceptionally well on all of the Epson Stylus Pro devices, especially for screen printing and flexo shops looking for an inexpensive alternative to imagesetters that require film processors and chemistry." The new IJD plug-in supports the popular Epson SureColor T- Series, including the T3000, T3270, T5000, T5270, T7000, and T7270.

"There are two major concerns that screen printers constantly face when looking to apply new technology in their production," said Piestrak. "The first is quality. The second is cost. Combining a Navigator RIP and T-Series printer for film output will result in an outstanding price-performance ratio without a sacrifice to quality. Plus, the interpretive accuracy and control offered by Navigator goes well beyond the capabilities of a standard print driver."

The Navigator RIP, workflow, and IJD plug-in are available now through Xitron's worldwide network of graphic arts dealers and resellers. To locate an authorized agent, simply go to http://xitron.com/find- dealer/.
