MUTOH creates new VerteLith RIP based on Harlequin technology


Global Graphics Software has licensed the Harlequin Host Renderer to MUTOH in a contract spread over multiple years. The agreement includes licensing Global Graphics’ new Opal Advanced Inkjet Screens to provide high-quality half-tone screening specially developed for MUTOH’s inkjet printing technology. Now, the Harlequin Host Renderer is being integrated into VerteLith, MUTOH’s RIP software, and will be available to MUTOH customers via a download service – initially for UV printers, viz. VJ-1638UR/UH and XPJ-461/661UF and ultimately for all the major models sold, including the eco-solvent machines. Additionally, while conventional RIP software mainly targets roll media, VerteLith is the new all-in-one RIP software covering most features required for roll media printing as well as integrating a jig layout tool to improve usability for UV flatbed printers.
