PDF 1.7 - PostScript 3 for superb quality documents

Founder's EagleRIP creates superb quality PDF and PostScript jobs. Complex documents, vivid colors, transparent objects, files with embedded ICC profiles and smooth shading are consistently processed to meet the high standards of the most demanding customer. EagleRIP provides support for features within PDF 1.7 and PostScript 3.

Performance that meets your most demanding print production needs

Founder's EagleRIP is multi-threaded and scales with system platform performance. For maximum performance EagleRIP supports over 100 CTP, CTF, Indigo press, laser printer and digital proofer devices, as well as 1 bit TIFF, 8-bit TIFF and Winprint output used by most leading vendor print devices.


Ensure output quality while reducing errors with fast, flexible and detailed screen previews and dot previews

Ensure the output to plate is accurate by digitally previewing color and dot shape prior to committing to physical output. EagleRIP lets you preview color separations and composites, and includes preview functions such as Zoom, Negative, Mirror, Rotate and Screen preview of the bitmap dot.

Higher quality print with screening options

EagleRIP screen dot shapes allow users to select the dot that ensures maximum printing quality. Nine standard screenings include Euclidean Round, Rhomb, Ellipse, Diamond, Pure Round, Sharp Ellipse, Square, Cross and FM screening. Optional screenings such as EagleAM, EagleFM, EagleFAM (AM & FM hybrid printing) and EagleAGS (gravure printing) are available as plug-ins.

EagleAM screening option

Adopts new screen angle technology (+/- 7.5) comparing to the traditional AM screening angle (15, 45, 90, 75).
a. Improves the rosette pattern, gray level is exquisite and smooth.
b. More accurate angles produces higher quality.
c. Better reproduction of gradient shading and overprint effect of tints and skin color.
d. Suitable for printing high frequency images on CTP (greater than 300LPI).

EagleFM screening option
Base on green noise FM technology & Founder Second Order FM Technology using variable dot size and variable spacing.
a. Control the randomicity of dots, ensuring the smooth middle tone.
b. Smooth transition at continuous tones, keeping details at overlapped colors.
c. Light area and shadow area can use different dot size for easy press and expanding the color gamut.

EagleFAM screening option
Base on the technology that keeps EagleAM (7.5 angle screening) in midtones and adopts FM screening in highlights and shadows.

a. Overcomes the weaknesses and combines the advantages of both traditional AM and traditional FM screening.
b. Achieves stable quality by using AM screening in midtones.
c. Eliminate rosettes and moiré aroused by low frequency.
d. Prevents FM dots from being noisy in some area and makes the dots look smooth and clean based on the Smooth transition from FM to AM using the same screening angles both in FM and AM.
e. Achieve high frequency with low resolution device by easily adjusting the area of FM dots to the smallest reproducible dot your press can deal with.

Save media and time with ganging

EagleRIP Ganging Viewer allows the operator to view multiple pages simultaneously, thus reducing the time spent to confirm that all pages have the correct content, and image data is in the correct orientation prior to output. Ganging allows the user of CTF and proofing to maximize the usage of media for lower costs. Ganging can be either automatic or by manual control providing maximum flexibility.

Supports advanced PDF vector trapping for improved quality and production
Founder EagleRIP includes a PDF trapping plug-in option that creates traps between vector objects, images and shadings. This plug-in traps vector images with high speed without compromising quality.
