Updating your printer definitions and profiles from V20 to V21

To ensure a smooth transition from version 20 to version 21, you should first back up your RIP configuration. This way, your usual settings, profiles and printer definitions will be directly available to you in the new version. Thanks to the integrated backup and restore functions, this can be done conveniently.

How to use our universal drivers: Windows Printer, Color Copier and Color Copier GDI

At ColorGATE, we are proud to be able to support digital printing systems from a wide range of manufacturers in our products, with over 1,700 drivers currently available. However, there are still cases where it is not possible to integrate a dedicated driver for a particular printer. For many lower-priced printers, the manufacturers do not intend for these to be controlled directly via RIP software; and given the large number of toner-based A4/A3 printers, it makes sense to offer only universal drivers for these in many cases. Fortunately, it is common for these kinds of printers to be controlled directly from Windows, so that you can print from any application. This is something we can take advantage of. This article explains how you can use our universal drivers to control printers without dedicated drivers in Productionserver or Proofgate.
