Onyx Graphics is to unveil Onyx 19 at Fespa Global, which opens tomorrow.
Visitors to ISA Las Vegas in the US last month got a sneak preview of the upgrade, which introduces the Spark Engine performance platform and DeviceLink+ colour management features.
The Spark Engine uses compression algorithms, a threading pipeline and new rendering technology for Rip speed increases up to 200%, printer performance increases up to 400% and step and repeat performance up to 600% according to Onyx.
“Onyx 19 is the culmination of 30 years of innovation in the wide-format print industry,” said Kevin Murphy, president and CEO of Onyx Graphics. “With unrivalled speed and performance from the new Spark Engine, coupled with next generation colour management using DeviceLink+, print service providers can reach new heights using Onyx 19.”
Fespa visitors will get an opportunity to see how to build iccMAX v5 profiles and choose between three new dot patterns for the smoothest output for various wide-format print applications.
