  • PowerRIP ScreenPrint is a PostScript Level 3 compatible RIP for creating digital halftone film positive output, and color proofs on supported EPSON inkjet printers with piezo print heads. PowerRIP rasterizes Postscript data from graphic programs, such as CorelDraw, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Freehand and Quark. PowerRIP controls screen angles, screen frequency and dot shape, as well as precise density control. PowerRIP and standard photo Epson inks achieve 3.0+ UV density.

    PowerRIP ScreenPrint Ulano Edition installs like any printer driver. Once the initial prefences are set, you select PowerRIP as your output device, just like any other printer driver.

    I have Apple and Windows computers and several printers, how many copies do I need to purchase?

    One! PowerRIP is network ready. You can connect your computers via Ethernet
    and print to any supported network EPSON printer. You should use a Windows computer as a server for your Apple and Windows computers on your network.

    If you only use Apple computers, it is a simple networking procedure to share the PowerRIP printer driver with the other computers on your network.

    Before you start to install, choose a Windows computer that will serve
    the other the other Windows or Apple computers, and install the PowerRIP Server using "Install/Remove/Repair PowerRIP ScreenPrint" from the autorun menu. You do have to activate PowerRIP later with special codes, but there are no USB dongles.

    All the drivers for both operating systems and Epson printers are on the Windows disc, but, the Windows version needs to be used as the print server for the Apple computers.

    To connect other computers on your network to the Server, use the PowerRIP disc but select "Connect Workstations to PowerRIP ScreenPrint".

    Does Ulano PowerRIP run on printers connected by network (even on the trial version)?

    Yes, all of the PowerRIP products work in a network environment. PowerRIP can be stand alone, or RIP servers simultaneously. The inkjet printer must be shared over the network, as a network printer and connected users must be registered and have rights. This is the basic way it works for Windows and Apple networking. PowerRIP does not assign the rights. The operating systems (Windows or Apple), allows remote users to print to local printers.

    What is PostScript and why do I need a PostScript RIP?

    PostScript is a programming language optimized for printing graphics and text. A PostScript RIP (Raster Image Processor) converts the output from your application into an image allowing you to utilize a non PostScript printer for high quality color and sharp, legible type.

    Is PowerRIP user friendly?

    Yes it is. iProof designed the options so they are intuitive. If you do not have time to read the manual, you can still use PowerRIP.

    Will PowerRIP increase my printer speed?

    Unfortunately, no. PowerRIP actually does more processing than a standard printer driver as it converts your Postscript output into language that the EPSON printer can understand. More ink will be deposited and at 1440 or 2880 dpi, that also takes longer. Many factors contribute to printing speed including the speed of your computer, amount of RAM in your computer, connection type and complexity of your file.
