Onyx Graphics, Inc., a leading software solution provider for the wide-format printing industry, announced that its ONYX software was recently certified for the HP Latex R Series printer line, the first hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll printer for rigid and flexible printing in one device using white latex ink. HP chose award-winning ONYX software last month during the FESPA Global Print Expo in Berlin to showcase the capabilities of the newly-unveiled HP Latex R2000 Plus printer with white ink technology.
HP’s RIP certification program defines a comprehensive set of compatibility criteria aligned to the highest performance standards and the unique capabilities of HP Latex printing technologies. The HP RIP Certification is a process to differentiate HP RIP partners who reach a specific and superior level of integration, compatibility, and performance with the specific device. Only companies that have demonstrated conformance with these criteria are awarded HP Latex certified status.
For the new HP Latex R Series printers, Onyx Graphics designed the driver to include new custom ONYX Quick Sets to make it even easier to print with white ink. The included Quick Sets feature uses the ONYX Spot Layer tool to generate white under- or over-layers, resulting in spectacular white output for sign and display applications.
“ONYX software certification by HP and its integrated compatibility with latex printers recreates the definition of quality and color for white ink applications on transparent or colored media,” said Bryan Manwaring, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics, Inc. “HP Latex R Series customers utilizing ONYX software can feel confident in delivering consistent quality output with efficient printer operation, right out of the box.”
About the HP Latex R Series printers
According to HP, the company’s HP Latex R Series is the first true hybrid latex technology that merges HP’s flexible printing capabilities into rigid printing. The HP Latex R Series brings the most vibrant colors into the rigid printing world, pioneering white ink capabilities with the introduction of HP Latex White Ink. The HP Latex R Series brings unparalleled speed and quality to a wide range of rigid materials such as foamboards, foam PVC, cardboard, fluted polypropylene, solid plastics, aluminum, wood and glass among others. HP’s water-based Latex Inks preserve the look and feel of the media and delivers odorless prints that are both safe for the environment and the printer operator.
