Welcome to the software solution for today’s print service provider.
Welcome to Ergosoft RIP.
Ergosoft RIP is the complete production suite.
Whether you have one printer or a fleet, Ergosoft RIP provides all the required tools.
We carefully crafted specialized modules for each specific step of the print production process:
- JobComposer is a feature-complete visual prepress suite.
- QueueManager controls all your print jobs.
- HotFolder serves for quick prepress automation.
- The multiple RIPEngines process your files in no time.
- With the ControlCenter, you can conveniently manage and access all modules.
The fully scalable software infrastructure can host one or multiple devices from a single RIP or across numerous workstations.
Our solution emphasizes an organic transition towards automated processes. Starting with defining presets for day-to-day configurations, followed by combining presets into composite workflows, resulting in automated “blackbox” processing.
With the “Networked Department Add-On,” Ergosoft RIP transforms into a fully connected enterprise-level solution for centralized printing.
Ergosoft Feature Highlights Prepress
Discover how Ergosoft RIP can help you implement and automate even the most complex prepress processes.
In this video, Hélder Azevedo and Toby Burnett discuss feature highlights based on user questions:

- Automating prepress with presets
- Nesting & TrueShape Nesting
- Cutting multiple paths per file
- Barcodes & Add-Ons
- Equalize output from multiple printers
- Workload balancing with PrinterPools
- Optimal use of additional profile colors
- Replace colors
- White ink & double-sided printing
- Estimate & calculate production costs
The JobComposer module is a visual layout suite for color-correct, high-resolution image editing and job arrangement.
Used to prepare files for printing, the JobComposers fully featured toolsets allow you to quickly process even complex print jobs and optimize media consumption with its pre-flighting and nesting functions.
The cleverly designed yet customizable user interface keeps all settings and actions available in a single mouse click, allowing you to save job settings to use as presets with future jobs.
Queue Manager Module
The QueueManager shows what is happening on any of your devices.
Manage priority, access production data and job tickets, or identify jobs with the advanced search and filter function.
PrintQueues and CutQueues are linked to individual devices and feature the same capabilities as the QueueManager.
Ergosoft RIP provides an extensive set of Profiling and Color features.
Ergosoft RIP reduces profiling into three simple steps for the best color results on all the materials you use:
- Configure the ink set you want to use
- Calculate the best ink density and dot gain curve
- Create a dedicated ICC profile
The in-depth configuration & calibration tools include ink channel configuration, density linearization, total ink limiting, rasterization, dithering, profile creation, profile optimization, and quality control.
The Color Replacement suite provides best-in-class spot color management regardless of the number of spot colors in a design file.
With the Color Equalizer tool, you effortlessly match color across printers, between printers of the same make/model, or even match the output from another software solution.
Print & Cut
Whether your files already have predefined cut paths, or you need to create them yourself on-the-fly, Ergosoft RIP handles your work perfectly.
Add registration marks, barcodes, and cut paths before you nest your jobs to reduce media waste and costs.
Our advanced tools create cut-optimized, nested layouts for rectangular and odd-shaped images with multiple cut layers to handle the most challenging finishing tasks.
Designed to take care of every step of a job’s journey.
Ergosoft RIP allows you to create Processing Policies, Device Environments, Image- and Job presets to control different elements of the production workflow. Output devices, job sizes, substrate color profiles, print marks, barcodes, cut lines, and more can all be defined easily.
When combined, these presets can define complex workflows that HotFolder and XML connections can drive.
Thanks to the unique integration in JobComposer, the effect of combining these settings in sequence can be viewed and tested manually before being used or deployed into the automated workflow.
With a correctly populated database, the Ergosoft RIP allows you to track your production costs for each job, showing ink used, media consumed, and printer time to give you an accurate cost for every job printed.
With the ErgoLytics Publish Add-On, job history and costs are visible from your web browser. The production data can be exported to *.xls, *.csv, or *.json for use in your MIS or ERP systems.
