TrapPro is Global Graphics Software’s in-RIP trapping engine available with the Genesis Release™ of the Harlequin RIP®. The TrapPro object-based raster engine delivers outstanding performance and excellent memory utilization. It adds the features demanded by top printers and publishers and is designed to trap jobs automatically. This in-rip trapping can easily be set up to accommodate different types of jobs or customers.Trap settings can be saved to reduce system time improving both quality and consistency of trapped output.


JDF Enabler, From the Eclipse Release (6.4) RIP onwards, Global Graphics' Harlequin RIPs are all JDF-ready - they are able to process jobs passed to them from a JDF source. To take advantage of this, the RIP must be configured to accept JDF files from either channels or hotfolders.

The JDF Enabler for the Harlequin RIP, is an optional module that provides this functionality: it will enable a user to set up and monitor either HTTP channels for JMF messaging, or published hotfolders for drag-and-dropped JDF files. The JDF Enabler features an intuitive web based GUI that allows multiple users to check on the status of JDF jobs and view progress, along with administrator level access to set up HTTP JMF channels and hotfolders.

The JDF Enabler for the Harlequin RIP Genesis Release supports JDF 1.1a and the latest 1.2 specification files.

FirstPROOF is a family of remote (LAN) pre-press soft-proofing systems, consisting of FirstPROOF Standard, FirstPROOF Professional, FirstPROOF Lite and FirstPROOF Viewer.

Available to run on either a PC or Apple Macintosh, FirstPROOF allows users to remotely view and approve output from multiple RIPs prior to imaging. The software allows you to easily and quickly navigate around your job, zooming in and out to check the layout and content. Once you are happy that the image is fine, you can then send it back for output. This is an essential tool for the pre-press department, where exposing film or burning plates can prove a costly excercise when mistakes are made, especially for CTP.
