RIPs AND PRINT SERVERS
A RIP (raster image processor), print server, or printer server, is a device that connects printers to client computers over a network. It accepts print jobs from the computers and sends the jobs to the appropriate printers, queuing the jobs locally to accommodate the fact that work may arrive more quickly than the printer can actually handle.
Machines need a different type of RIP depending on the needs of the machine or the imagery being printed. We work closely with Xerox, HP and Epson to make sure we are providing the best RIP & support for each machine we provide & service.
Difference between an internal and external print server / RIP
Integrated print server / RIP
Internal RIPs are an ideal controller for today’s office, boasting unrivalled simplicity and value with a familiar touchscreen. World-class colour and workflow tools put you in command, with all the advantages of production workflows – in a compact, value-oriented package.
External print server / RIP
External RIP technology delivers high-impact documents with vibrant images and colour that exceed your expectations. No more transparency problems. No more colour matching challenges. Instead, you will see faster turnarounds & more accurate results.
