3. Benefits of TOPAZ Rip, in comparison with other rips.

If people suffer from color problem in P rip, speed problem in O rip and price problem in C rip and W rip, our new software will be a good substitute.

In comparison with other rips,
- There's no option for Best Resolution Ripping in other rips, when user wants best quality output. Topaz rip provides various ripping option including original resolution ripping, which creates the best output.
- There's lack of Color Control ability in other rips. Most of users suffer from color correction problem in other rips.
* When user like to increase 10% of Cyan only. However the output shows increased yellow unexpectedly.
* When user want to print Backlit, black control is very important. With other rips, if people want to increase ink cut, overall color is out of control. So in many backlit application, black color is too weak if user prevent the output from ink running, which is critical for back-light applications.
* People cannot correctly predict the change of color in output when adjusting color in other rips, that's because the Rip is too dependent on ICC profiles.
* TOPAZ Rip expands the gamut of ICC profile and allows user to freely adjust colors. TOPAZ Color control is predictable, flexible and controllable. This is because TOPAZ color control module is independent to ICC profiles.
- There's a limitation of output length in other rips. There's no limitation in TOPAZ Rip. 500m long printing is possible, if there's real 500m long media roll.
- There's very strong interpolation algorithm in 'Scale-Up' application in TopazRip, which is called "Topaz Bicubic Interpolation". This enables the best scaled up output from small pictures. There's lack of this option in other rips.
- TopazRip's new screen technology (Topaz Qubis Screen) allows the smoothest gradation (single, dual, multiple colors). Even better than Epson driver itself.
- TopazRip has Profiling Wizard in it as a default, which other rips cannot provide. There're 3 levels of profiling in TopazRip. People can do linearization and profiling without profiler software and calibration devices, just with using "normal scanners".

4. Partnership Program

MSRP of the Rip is expected to be around USD 2,500.00 for the Full Featured Rip with Color Management (including profiling) and Server Features.
