The best of FM and AM together – Screened images achieve photo appearance!

The HD RIP enables what offset and commercial printers have wanted for a long time – Printing images that are even better than FM quality while only worrying about the cost and effort for AM. HD RIP gives you much more color stability with perfectly homogeneous fills, and the smoothest of blends with brilliant shades of color.
