X-Rite Color Services, a department within X-Rite, Incorporated (NASDAQ: XRIT), today announced that it has partnered with ONYX Graphics, Inc., to provide a wide range of training services for users of ONYX Graphics’ new version X10 production RIP products, which are used throughout the world to efficiently process creative design content and drive a number of wide-format printers for a variety of display graphics applications.
As part of the world's leading designer and manufacturer of color measurement systems, X-Rite Color Services has a team of Color Experts and an acclaimed network of professionals who have particular experience in teaching advanced concepts in digital printing. Salt Lake City-based ONYX Graphics has developed a suite of software packages that helps commercial printers to use raster image processor (RIP) files and other formats to simplify everyday printing tasks.
"We are very excited to bring our partnership with ONYX Graphics to a whole new level,” said Murphy Keeley, Vice President of Services at X-Rite. "We expect our outstanding new ONYX training programs to benefit customers of both companies by maximizing their return on the extensive X10 RIP software capabilities and learning about best-in-class color managed workflows.”
ONYX Graphics recently released version X10 of its production RIP products including ONYX® ProductionHouse™, ONYX PosterShop®, and ONYX RipCenter™ -- to dramatically simplify everyday printing tasks by giving print shops greater control over their workflow. Users now enjoy significantly fewer steps for creating profiles with ONYX version X10 RIP products. With its new, highly automated color profiling system and easy-to-follow guide, users can build media profiles in minutes instead of hours.
"ONYX Graphics and X-Rite both enjoy well deserved reputations in the large format printing industry for providing innovative, market leading products and services,” said Elena Newton, Director of Global Services at ONYX Graphics. "Our goal is to help ensure that our customers get the most out of their investment in printers and software. Training plays a critical role in helping print operators to maximize their efficiency, ensure the highest output quality, and maintain profitability.”
