Caldera Launches New RIP Software For DTG & DTF Printing

French RIP software creator Caldera has launched new solutions for direct-to-garment (DTG) and direct-to-film (DTF) printing.

“The Caldera Direct-to-X product range will initially only be available in a bundle from selected DTG and DTF printer OEMs, as the first of a suite of linked products,” the company said in a press release.

It will be followed by Caldera Direct-to-Object and Caldera Direct-to-Fabric, and the new software will form a suite of Direct-to-X RIPs, aimed squarely at the garment decoration market.

“We are already bundling with some garment printer manufacturers, while continuing to work with other OEMs to offer the solution for garment printing machines,” Caldera’s VP Marketing, Sebastien Hanssens said.

“Caldera has also created a new offering for the apparel decoration market, aimed at users who want to provide full customisation to their clients, from unique pieces to small batch print runs,” Hanssens added.

The software’s key features include colour management, a background knock-out feature, intelligent white management, ink management and an easy-to-use GUI.

“Caldera Direct-to-X product range is a radical change for the company in another way: It will be the first Caldera RIP product to natively run on Microsoft Windows, as well as Mac OS and Linux,” the company said.

“Alongside being bundled with new DTG and DTF printers, Caldera Direct-to-X solutions will become available to customers on a subscription basis later in the year,” Sebastien stated.

Headquartered in Strasbourg, France, Caldera is a software company developing innovative solutions for the large-format digital printers.
