PANTONE® Color Matching

ONYX® RipCenter™ includes a fully licensed PANTONE® Color Library, which makes spot color matching easy because more accurate PANTONE spot color matching happens automatically during processing. The ONYX RIP recognizes PANTONE-named colors in PostScript® or PDF files and matches the colors as closely as possible.



Easy to Install, Easy to Use

With ONYX RipCenter, getting up to speed and producing professional color is as simple as install, open file, and print. Yet despite its simplicity, RipCenter contains a production toolset that outperforms bundled RIPs and Windows printer drivers.

RipCenter Workflow

Professional Quality Color, Every Time

Default color calibration and ICC® profiles—optimized for a variety of ink and media combinations—provide consistent, accurate color “out of the box” for those just getting started in large format printing.

Network Accessible Across Platforms

The RipCenter queue appears as a normal printer on your network, so you can print directly from your creative application from any Mac or PC on the network or drag and drop jobs into a Hot Folder. When the system detects an available printer matching the correct job properties, printing begins automatically.

Onyx Saves Media

Automatic Updates Just a Click Away

The included ONYX AutoUpdate feature keeps your RipCenter application current with the latest 7.0 product features and printer drivers by periodically verifying your RIP installation and then automatically downloading only the software updates you need.
