The new V14 Caldera Rip promises users increased production capacity and minimised downtime via the parallelisation of Hotfolder queries. According to the company this means a time saving of 35% on PDF workflows, and up to 60% faster TIFF workflows for industrial and textile printers.
V14 also includes a number of features that exclusive to CalderaCare customers. Their file-based workflows can link to the Rip and to PrimeCenter, Caldera’s new production automation solution, by loading and processing metadata, like the number of copies of each prepared layout.
Additional new features include QuickConfig, which reduces the time spent managing configurations by offering extra flexibility when submitting jobs from the ImageBar. The latest Adobe iteration, APPE 5.5, features a Fine Line Rendering algorithm for sharper lines and more readable small text. V14 also includes features that were previously exclusive to CalderaCare users, such as access to Automated Double-sided Print&Cut, and Nesting Content View.
Caldera V14 supports 42 new print drivers and three new roll cutter drivers, as well as updates to macOS V11.0 Big Sur. Patch detection for the latest X-Rite i1Pro3 and i1i03 spectrophotometer has also been enhanced.
