Features Easy to install and set up Support of all Mimaki printers. Print simultaneously with multiple printers Able to change printer per job. Able to cancel all jobs at once. Easy operation for grouped jobs. Printing white ink available. 16 bits color device profile Enhanced color replacement function Filtering profiles on the list screen Get color from designer’s color sample with a low-cost scanner Optimized media use by positioning a small image freely Improved tiling functions for large output Multifunctional copy Completely Data save and memorize the detail RIP information

Multiple printers (1) Able to connect up to four printers and print at the same time Not able to create preview, and multiple RIP processing at the same time PCI card is needed as same number as printer In order to the computer specification, or print condition, processing may delay for the printing.
Multiple printers (2) To select a printer, print on the application printer, or just copy the data to hot folder. Hot folder for printer1 Copy Printer for printer1 Print Copy Hot folder for printer2 Printer for printer2 Print Printer 1 Printer 2
Multiple Printer Detail: Additional Printer Support All the Mimaki printers are supported. (1) UJF-605C and UJF-605R –Able to use the same function as RasterLinkUJ. Visualized operation is available for color replacement. (based on RasterLinkProII) (2) GP-604(D), DM1810(D), DM2, DM3 and GP-604S –No change from RasterLinkGP on function and operation. (3) Tx2 and Tx3 –Able to use RasterLinkProII standard functions. –Not supported TXLink color replacement using TIFF index color. Do not need to use another application, like RL/JU. Able to do the setting on the RIP screen. Able to do the RL/GP ’ s way operation for LED pointer setting, image edit and discharge ink setting.
Virtual printer Able to register the print condition to the application printer or hot folder Not only the print condition, but also able to register the Rotate, Mirror, and Scale Printer_720x720 Print Set up the print condition as a 720x x720 print condition had been set when the data is loaded. Print with 720x720 Easy to add thenew print condition printer Printer_720x1440
Usability: User-Friendly Job Operation Job operation has been simple and quick. –Able to change printer even for registered job. –Only one click stops all output transactions when using multiple printers. Printer selection Cancel All jobs
Usability Detail: Grouped Job Operation Grouped Job operation has been faster. –Able to layout multiple jobs at once. Available Item: Scale, Rotation, Mirror and Position. –Able to remove some jobs from a grouped job on the layout screen. Select rotation after apply multiple jobs. Able to remove jobs on this screen without getting back to the main screen.
Color (conversion) Color conversion Color conversion with ICC profile Color conversion with gray balance curve Able to configure vector and raster separately Color adjustment Able to configure the following settings separately, contrast, CMY density adjustment, and K-CMY rate adjustment ContrastAdjust CMYK contrast curve uniformly Overall densityAdjust CMYK uniformly CMY density adjustmentAdjust density CMY separately K density adjustmentAdjust K density Adjust K and CMY rateAdjust the replace rate of CMY combined K and K Gray balance curveEdit Gray balance curve Ink limit curveEdit ink limit curve
Color: White ink print (1) White ink print is available with three functions: (1)White ink print for the specified character or graphic. Specify with Illustrator spot color, then replace to white ink. specify with spot color Illustrator RL/Pro II color replacement Replace the spot color to white ink
Color: White ink print (2) (2) Print gradation with white ink Specify the gradation on Illustrator with the RIP limitation color, then replace to white ink 4 types of gradation are available with color replace Gradation Illustrator RL/Pro II color replacement Replace the spot color to white ink
Color: White ink print (3) (3) Easy to print white ink under the image Use the JV3SP white layer function RIP automatically create the white ground data Print Color over white Print white over color RL/ProII spot color adjustmentComposite order: white color Composite order: color white
Color: White ink print (4) (Supplement) JV3SP White layer function Divide a head front and back, then print white and color layer White layer print level （ Level 1 to 3 ） is a setting to reduce the nozzle number in order to provide ink drying time. KMYCLmLcWW Media front Print color first Print white later Print order : color white KMYCLmLcWW Media front Print white first Print color later Print order : white color
Color: Get color from designer’s sample (1) Scan the designer’s color sample Able to color matching up to 12 spot colors
Color: Get color from designer’s sample (2) Scanner is EPSON Perfection4990 Gradation is not available Need a test print beforehand in order that color reproduction accuracy differs depend on the color sample, scanner, or profile.
Color Detail: Accurate Color All the Profile data have been expanded to 16 bits. Color matching accuracy is much more advanced. –Highlight is well reproduced. –Much less tone jump on gradations. –Preserves the same speed, compared with old 8 bits profile( V2 profile). –Required no special setting, Just select the V3 profile on the print condition screen. Accurate color reproduction
Color Detail:Proper Ink Limit Ink limit method has been more proper in V3 profile. –Adopts ink limit values differently from primary colors to composite colors. –Stronger pure color but less bleeding is possible. Case: this media can hold ink up to 210%. Starts bleeding at C=M=Y=70% Total of 210%. Adopts 70% each. Non Bleeding but Weak Magenta and Red. Adopts 70% for composite color (CMY). Non bleeding and Strong Magenta and Red. V2 profile V3 profile Primary Color Composite Color
Color Detail:Profile Filter Function On the print condition setting screen, able to filter the profile list with variety of keys. Filtering by: Ink set, Media name, Resolution and Profile version. Filtering in ink set. Only SS2 CMYKLcLm profiles are on the list.
Color Detail:Enhanced Color Replacement Color Replacement function has been more functional. –Input color can be CMYK as well as spot color. –Up to 4 special inks can be replaced on Tx2 or Tx3. CMYK color can be replaced with special inks. Able to replace color by selecting the ink slot numbers.
