Easy to use but more powerful than ever
Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP software opens up a whole new world of possibilities to print businesses, utilising PDF and PostScript engines to give users the most effective and powerful VersaWorks RIP ever. With faster previewing times and improved handling of PDF and EPS files, including complex files with drop shadows and transparencies, VersaWorks Dual boasts a new RIP engine, plus the same user-friendly interface of VersaWorks.
Roland VersaWorks Dual is designed exclusively for Roland printers and printer/cutters, optimising their performance and ease of use. It is included as part of your printer package.
From design to RIP is simple
While increased RIP processing speed enables users to preview files much faster, a combined PDF/PostScript engine improves functionality as a whole. VersaWorks Dual handles PDF, EPS and PS files natively, without any transparency rendering issues that previously would have meant users having to go back and forth to edit effects in design software.
Shadows, transparencies and effects
Transparency, drop shadows, blur effects and other graphic effects are processed and printed natively within VersaWorks Dual. The PDF/PostScript core engine renders all effects the way they’re intended to look in the design.
Drag and drop functionality
VersaWorks Dual was made for easy print production, featuring a simple drag-and-drop interface that allows users to quickly add jobs to the print queue directly from folders on your PC. User-friendly icons open printer settings, job previews and other functions for fast, efficient file set-up.
Unlimited queue settings for maximum production
Manage and maximise your print production with unlimited queue settings. With save and store options to capture specific print settings, VersaWorks Dual helps busy, high-volume print shops plan and organise print production in advance by utilising these pre-set settings.
Predictive ink calculator for unattended printing
A predictive ink calculator estimates the amount of ink needed for each job, enabling unattended printing. When there is not enough ink to complete a print job, VersaWorks Dual notifies the operator before printing. This feature also helps users to calculate production costs and quote jobs competitively and profitably.
Advanced variable text and image data
Variable Data Printing allows users to merge txt or csv data fields into predefined design fields. Print labels, name badges, plaques, menus and other prints in which text and/or graphics change from one print to the next. VersaWorks Dual features new variable printing features that allow users to rotate, mirror and align images and text inside the RIP.
Simply powerful productivity
In addition to all its new features, VersaWorks Dual is equipped with the same powerful productivity tools that users have come to expect from VersaWorks. These include PerfCut for precision perforated cutting through material, as well as advanced layout tools such as nesting, tiling, mirroring, rotating, resizing and positioning. VersaWorks Dual simplifies the printing of large format graphics and gives you ultimate control of your Roland device. Choose from high-quality, artistic and high-speed modes to optimise your print production.
Industry standard ICC profile support
VersaWorks Dual is compatible with industry standard ICC profiles, including those created through all major profiling packages, with support for linearisation and ink limiting.
Job logs to track production costs and quote jobs competitively
A job log feature in VersaWorks Dual keeps a timed and dated record that can be exported to Microsoft Excel – including the size, ink usage, print time and more.
PANTONE® Library and Roland Color System
As well as featuring a built-in PANTONE® library with detailed spot colour matching and choices, VersaWorks Dual supports comprehensive colour libraries and offers features that enable automated colour-matching of logos and other corporate identity elements.
Full network support
VersaWorks Dual allows you to connect an unlimited number of clients for unattended printing throughout the network. Client computers can send jobs to the server (computer with VersaWorks Dual installed) through a shared network printer driver or via dedicated hot folders.
