An affordable Computer-to-Plate solution
The system consists of the ColorBurst CTP RIP software to print halftoned plate images and a plate curing unit to heat-cure the printed plates.
A printer plate guide is included with the 4-up system to properly align plates before printing (the 2-up system does not require a guide).
Add the system to your Epson Stylus Pro printer
The ColorBurst Digital Inkjet CTP System supports a wide range of Epson Stylus Pro printers, allowing you to add it to a printer you may already own. Or add it to any supported Epson Stylus Pro printer based on your other printing needs.
Print composite or separations from applications
The ColorBurst CTP RIP allows you to print directly from your image-editing
and layout applications, such as InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and QuarkXPress. ColorBurst can be
added as a new printer under Mac OS X and Windows. The ColorBurst printer
can then be selected from your application in the Print dialog, where you can print as composite or separations. The job will be sent to the ColorBurst Job List to build plate images.
Print halftone dot composite proofs (available in 4-up version only)
Catch moiré patterns before going to press with halftone composite proofs. The ColorBurst Digital Inkjet CTP System prints true halftone dot composite proofs to let you see the exact linescreen and screen angles that you'll get on your separated plates.
Build output-independent plate images
The ColorBurst CTP RIP allows you to reuse plate images for different output. The same file can be reprinted at different line screens (133, 150, 175 or 200 LPI), different screen angles, or on different sized plates without reprocessing.
Make in-house color-accurate contract proofs and photographic prints
The ColorBurst CTP RIP includes ColorBurst's award-winning print-for-pay environments and ICC profiles for photographic prints and SWOP/GRACoL certified* proofs.
ColorBurst includes Postscript
Language Level 1, 2, and 3 support for PS, EPS,
and PDF files. This includes EPS files
with JPEG compression, multipage files, and multichannel DCS files. Other file formats supported
include CMYK, RGB, Lab, 16-bit, and color-mapped TIFF files (including
LZW compression), CMYK and RGB JPEG files, and RTL raster files.
