Linux
and Mac
are the operating systems chosen by Caldera for optimal resource management
and quality workflow.
Advantages:
Increased resource management: The processor and memory are optimally used for applications
and not consumed by the system. With more resources allocated to them, the RIPing and PRINTing of
files are logically faster.
Multi-Task environment: Users can print and RIP while preparing, layouting, nesting, cutting, color
matching... other jobs to be sent to printers.
User-friendly GUI: Spend less time looking for the right window and functions. Caldera’s interface
has been carefully designed for optimal ergonomy. Intuitively drag and drop your jobs on the targeted
printer to get the job done.
Master-Slave architecture: Spend less time training on or manipulating different RIP’s on different
machines. A single master RIP computer (Mac or PC) can manage unlimited RIP/Printing slave computer’s
for scalable distributed computing over the network. One Caldera RIP will drive all the printers and cutters
of your network.

ICC Profile Creation
EasyMedia is a step-by-step wizard which allows you to specify the color gamut for any print configuration with a
given media in no time at all.
Thanks to the simple steps in EasyMedia to calibrate transition, linearization and ink use, printers can fine-tune their
color processing for optimum stability and consistency across their output.
EasyMedia incorporates i1Prism V2, the state-of-the-art profile builder from X-Rite, so you can guarantee accurate,
repeatable color across all your devices.

Manual Spectrophotometers
The i1Pro2 is a handheld, easy-to-use color measurement device that
XRite i1Pro2
provides accurate readings for creating profiles.
Because of the Caldera ColorPad’s portability and “computer independence”,
this professional spectrophotometer device can be placed and used directly
on the printer. The integrated touch display simplifies the interaction with
the device and gives immediate feedback of the measurement results. The
ColorPad is the ideal tool for measuring a wide variety of media used in
professional digital printing (including large and wide format) for use away
from the desk.
Automated Spectrophotometers
Caldera TotalColor is the ultimate and most complete solution for color
management and profiling.
TotalColor’s automatized table measures media both opaque and transparent
with a changeable measuring aperture of 2, 6 and 8 mm for high and low
resolution prints, with plain or structured face. The TotalColor table has the
ability to read materials up to 20mm thick.
Caldera EasyColor is an automated solution for linearization and profiling
of photographic and wide format output devices for flexible reflective and
transparent materials with a thickness up to 0,7 mm.
Easy to use, versatile and compact, Caldera EasyColor is the easiest way to
achieve top quality prints from digital output devices.
The i1iO is a robotic, automatic chart reading system that is designed
to work with i1Pro2 devices. It’s ideal for photographers, designers, and
XRite i1iO
printers who want to speed up and automate the measurement process.
Simply plug in the device, align the test patch, and the scanning table
does all the work—no more manual strip reading!

PRint STANDARD VERIFIER OPTION
Caldera’s first step to certification
CHECK PRINTING CONFoRMITY
Caldera’s Print Standard Verifier is a new tool to check the conformity
of printing processes with industry standards. It provides a solution to the
ever-increasing requests for standards compliance in the digital printing
market.
While certifications linked to universally recognised standards have existed
for years in offset print, digital print has many variables that make it difficult
to establish a global standard. However, standards research and definition is
now supported by organisations like Fogra, ISO or G7 to aid digital PSPs in
achieving a certified process standard.
FOGRA, G7 & ISO VERIFICATION
To bring customers more accuracy and quality, Caldera has decided to subscribe to the FOGRA organization. This support
allows Caldera to add some printing process checking tools to its RIP solutions.
As Caldera’s full project will be released step by step, the 9.10 Version is the first to contain a new tool to check the
conformity to FOGRA’s PSD and PSO certifications, G7 certifications and to the ISO Standards: ISO 12647-2, ISO 12647-7
and ISO 12647-8.
