This addendum describes new features and updates information for the RIP Station 5000,
software version 1.3, for use with the EPSON Stylus Pro 5000 printer. Before using the
RIP Station 5000, be sure to read this addendum and distribute it to all users.
N OTE : This document uses the term “RIP Station” to refer to the RIP Station 5000.
New features and updated information are organized based on the manual in the original
documentation set in which it would have appeared. The documentation set included:
Getting Started, User Guide, Administrator Guide, and Color Printing Guide.
Getting Started
This section of the addendum updates areas of the Getting Started. Changes occurred in
almost every chapter, including “Introduction,” “Installing user software on a Windows
computer,” “Installing software on a Mac OS computer,” and “Fiery WebTools.”
Introduction
The main changes in this chapter are the system requirements and the operating systems
supported.
Operating systems
The new version of software supports Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, and
MacOS. Windows 3.1x and Windows NT 3.51 are no longer supported.
The procedures for setting up printing with Windows 98 and installing utilities on
Windows 98 computers are the same as the procedures described for Windows 95 in the
Getting Started. Any significant differences are described in the Getting Started section of
this addendum.
System requirements
The systems requirements are specific to the operating system you are using.
Windows
To print to the RIP Station and use all the Fiery utilities (including ColorWise Pro Tools)
you need:
• A Windows-based computer with an 80486, Pentium, or higher processor
• Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0
• For Windows 95/98, at least 8MB RAM (16MB is recommended)
• For Windows NT 4.0, at least 16MB RAM (32MB is recommended) and NT Service
Pack 3 or higher
• To use Fiery WebTools, either Netscape Communicator v4.03 or 4.05 or Microsoft
Internet Explorer v3.0 or 4.0 and a monitor that supports 16-bit color at a minimum
resolution of 800 x 600
Page 4
Mac OS
To print to the RIP Station and use all the Fiery utilities (including ColorWise Pro Tools)
you need:
• A Mac OS-based computer with 68040 (with 32-bit addressing turned on) or PowerPC
processor
• OS 8.0 or higher
• At least 16MB RAM (32MB is recommended)
• To use Fiery WebTools, either Netscape Communicator v4.03 or 4.04 or Microsoft
Internet Explorer v3.01 and a monitor that supports 16-bit color at a minimum
resolution of 800 x 600
Installing user software on a Windows computer
The file structure of the User Software CD has changed slightly since version 1.1. In
addition, the current software release supports SMB printing (also known as Windows
printing or WINS printing), which was not supported with previous software releases. A
new utility, ColorWise Pro Tools, provides all the functionality of Fiery Print Calibrator
and more.
The name of the PostScript Printer description file (PPD), displayed in screens such as the
Printer Properties dialog box, is now “Fiery LX Stylus Pro 5000 v1.3.” The name of the
PPD file is Efme1012.ppd.
Setting up printing with Windows 95/98
The Setup.exe icon for installing the Adobe PostScript printer driver for Windows 95/98 is
located in the English\Instalrs\Ps_Drvr\Win_9x folder on the User Software CD.
Completing the SMB printing connection for Windows 95/98
If you don’t have a Novell network, you can print via SMB printing. Printing by this
method allows you to print from your computer to a particular print connection (Hold,
Print, or Direct) on the RIP Station.
To set up printing to a second or third print connection, you must install a new printer for
each connection and repeat the procedure “To set up SMB printing:” on page 6. If you
install more than one printer, give each a descriptive name during printer driver
installation, such as Astro-Print or Astro-Hold, so you can easily identify printers.

Job List window
Your first view of Fiery WebSpooler is the Job List window, which is divided into three areas
by Spool, RIP, and Print status bars. The Job List window is surrounded by a frame that
includes slider buttons and menus. System information indicators at the bottom of the
window show the availability of hard disk space and RAM on the currently selected
RIP Station.
When the RIP Station is receiving and processing print jobs, the Job List window is a
dynamic display, filled with the names of jobs and their characteristics. Status bars animate
in real time as new jobs are processed and printed, and jobs move to different display areas.

System information indicators
The Spool, RIP, and Print areas of the Job List window represent the stages of printing a
job. Jobs come in at the top level (Spool) and drop down to the Print level, unless they are
held along the way.
• Spooled jobs—Jobs listed in the area below the Spool status bar area are PostScript files
stored on the RIP Station disk. These jobs were sent to the Print queue. These PostScript
files are saved on the server’s hard disk. PostScript files can come in packets from the
network, or from another place on the server hard disk. Jobs are added to a queue in the
order in which they arrive, and they generally move to another queue in the same order
unless someone intervenes to change the order.
• RIPped jobs—Jobs listed in the area below the RIP status bar are ready to print. They
have already been rasterized (RIPped, or processed for printing) and are waiting, in order,
for access to the printer. During RIPping, PostScript commands are interpreted in the
RIP Station to allow the printer to print the file the way its originator intended. The
result of this interpretation is a raster file associated with the original PostScript file. In
this raster file (raster image), color data is associated with each dot that can be rendered
by the print engine. The color data tells the print engine whether or not to apply cyan,
magenta, yellow, or black ink to each position on the page.
Page 23
• Printed jobs—Jobs listed in the area below the Print status bar have already been printed.
Printed jobs can be stored on the RIP Station disk. The number of jobs that can be stored
(from 1 to 99) is defined in Setup.
• Errors—Jobs with an error are shown in red. To display the error, double-click the job
line.
If you are logged in as Administrator, you can interact with a job in the window by selecting
it and choosing a command from the Job menu, or by double clicking it and setting print
option overrides. (However, if a password has been set and you are logged in as Guest, you
can only view jobs; you cannot interact with them.)
The job icons displayed in the Fiery WebSpooler window are explained on page 24.
N OTE : If your job does not appear anywhere in the Fiery WebSpooler window, it may have
already been printed; if so, it will appear in the Job Log. To view the Job Log, choose Show
Job Log from the Window menu. (For more information on the Job Log, see page 27.)

Status bars
Jobs actively involved in the three processes (spooling, rasterizing, and printing) are listed in
the status bars that span the Job List window.
Status bars show the filename and user name for the active process, and an indication of its
progress. Each status bar heads the list of jobs that have completed the process. Thus,
beneath the Spool status bar, you see a list of spooled files; beneath the RIP status bar, you
see a list of rasterized (RIPped) files. Beneath the Print status bar, you see a list of jobs that
have already been printed.
N OTE : In the Spool status bar, the filename and user information always appear as
“Unknown.” This information is not available until the job has finished spooling to the
RIP Station disk.
Job icons
There are two types of icons that are used for active jobs:
Icon:
Active jobs:
(white icons)
PostScript data after printing, raster deleted
PostScript icon
PostScript or raster data headed for printing
Printer icon
Spool area
The job icon in the Spool area is described below:
Spool area icon:
What it indicates:
PostScript data headed for Print
How long you see the job:
Until the RIP is free
White printer icon
The Spool area is the waiting area for jobs that will be RIPped (jobs in the Spool queue).
Print queue jobs Network jobs sent to the Print queue appear in the Spool area where
they are shown with a white printer icon. When they reach the head of the queue, they are
RIPped and printed.
Direct connection jobs Jobs printed to the Direct connection are not displayed in the
Fiery WebSpooler job lists. They are displayed briefly in the status bars (where they cannot
be selected) and are included in the Job Log.
Page 25
RIP area
The job icon in the RIP area is described below:
RIP area icon:
What it indicates:
Raster data headed for Print in its
turn
How long you see the job:
Until printer is free to print the
job
White printer icon
After a job is rasterized, it goes into the RIP area. The RIP area holds only raster data (i.e.,
jobs that have been rasterized). Jobs in the RIP area are waiting for the printer to be free.
N OTE : Raster jobs in the RIP area that are waiting to print cannot be manipulated by job
commands.
Print area
The job icon in the Print area is described below:
Print area icon:
What it indicates:
PostScript data only—raster data
has been deleted
How long you see the job:
Until the job limit is reached
White PS icon
The Print area, also referred to as the Printed queue, contains jobs that have already been
printed.
N OTE : A job row that appears in light red indicates that a PostScript error occurred while
printing the job. To see the error, double-click anywhere in the row.
Newly printed jobs are added to the Printed queue, and are shown at the top of the list. Jobs
are saved in the Printed queue until the job limit is reached. When the first job over the
limit is printed, the oldest job is deleted from the disk. The default job limit is 10 jobs. The
value for Jobs Saved in Printed Queue can be changed in Setup by the administrator.
N OTE : If you reprint a job in the Printed queue, the job returns to its original position in
the Printed queue after it is printed.
While it is printing, a job consists of PostScript and raster data; jobs with only PostScript
data remaining are represented by a white PS icon.
Page 26
Job commands
Using the commands in the Job menu, you can alter the destinations, priorities and other
characteristics of jobs that appear in the Fiery WebSpooler window.
Job commands are used to assign a selected job to a new destination or process. These
commands are available from the Job menu (see page 23). The job commands available at a
given time depend on the context; unavailable commands are dimmed.
The job commands available for selected jobs in the Job List window are listed in the
following table.

Overriding print settings
When logged in as Administrator, you can use the Override Print Settings command to
check and override the print option settings (properties) of all jobs.
You can use this command for several purposes:
• To override a setting based on printed output or other print device conditions
• To change settings for a duplicate of the original job
• To print a single copy of a job before printing the number of copies required by the user
Page 27
To change the print settings for a job, double-click the job line or select the job and choose
Override Print Settings from the Job menu.
The options you set here are the same ones you set from the Print dialog box when you
print from an application. For information about print options, see “Print Options” on
page 42.
If you want to retain a copy of the job with its original settings, duplicate the job and
rename the duplicate before you change any settings (see “Job commands” on page 26).
The Override Print Settings dialog box displays all the job settings encoded by the
PostScript printer driver that can be decoded by the RIP Station. If you (as operator) have
not changed anything, these are the settings a user entered before sending the job.
Using the Job Log
From Fiery WebSpooler, you can view and print a log of all jobs printed by the RIP Station,
including jobs downloaded with Fiery Downloader. You can also save the Job Log to a text
file which you can then import into a spreadsheet or word processing application for job
accounting purposes.
N OTE : If you logged in as Administrator, you can delete the Job Log from
Fiery WebSpooler (see page 29). The Job Log is not available if you logged in as Guest.

Fiery Spooler
The Fiery Spooler interface and functionality are almost exactly the same as before. See the
User Guide for more information. The Override Print Settings dialog box has changed.
Simulation
The processes of simulation and calibration have changed greatly from the previous
software version as the result of a new utility, ColorWise Pro Tools. In addition, a number
of new DuPont qualified simulations are now available.
For information on installing and configuring a connection to ColorWise Pro Tools, see the
Getting Started section of this addendum.
Using ColorWise Pro Tools
ColorWise Pro Tools, which includes Calibrator, Color Editor, and Profile Manager, allows
for great control of color printing.
N OTE : Only one user can be connected to ColorWise Pro Tools at a time. You will get an
error message if you try to connect when another user is already using ColorWise Pro Tools.
N OTE : ColorWise Pro Tools for Mac OS and Windows computers are fundamentally the
same; differences are noted in this addendum. The windows and dialog boxes you see
illustrated are the Windows version.
Calibrator
Calibrating the RIP Station ensures consistent, reliable color output. You can calibrate the
RIP Station with Calibrator and the EPSON Color Calibrator colorimeter (available as an
option). Using the colorimeter, you can quickly measure color patches and download these
measurements to the RIP Station.
T O CALIBRATE THE P RO 5000 USING C ALIBRATOR :
1.
Start ColorWise Pro Tools and connect to the RIP Station.
For instructions on configuring the connection to the RIP Station, see “Configuring the
connection” on page 15.
2.
Click Calibrator.
EPSON Color Calibrator should appear as the measurement method. This information is
provided to Calibrator by the RIP Station. If EPSON Color Calibrator does not appear,
make sure you are connected to the RIP Station.
Page 30
3.
Under Check Print Settings, choose the desired calibration set.
Choose the appropriate calibration set for the type of media on which you will be printing
most often.
N OTE : It is not necessary to recalibrate before printing on a media type other than the one
you select here.
4.
Under Generate Measurement Page, click Print.
5.
Choose the paper size and input tray to use for the measurements page and click Print.
6.
Use the EPSON Color Calibrator to read the measurements page data into a file.
See your EPSON Color Calibrator documentation for instructions.
7.
Under Get Measurements, click From File and browse to the location of the file you created
with the EPSON Color Calibrator.
8.
Select this file and click Open.
9.
When you are notified that the measurements were read successfully, click OK, then click
Apply to implement the new calibration.
N OTE : Changing the calibration has the potential to affect all jobs for all users, so you may
want to limit the number of people authorized to perform calibration. An Administrator
password can be set to control access to calibration from the RIP Station Control Panel.
Page 31
T O RESTORE DEFAULT CALIBRATION MEASUREMENTS :
1.
Launch ColorWise Pro Tools and click Calibrator.
2.
Click Restore Device.
3.
Click OK to restore the factory default calibration.
N OTE : Restore device applies the factory default calibration measurements to all calibration
sets, not just the currently selected one.
Color Editor
The Color Editor is used to customize simulation profiles and can be accessed either
directly, by clicking on its icon, or indirectly, through the Profile Manager.
Editing Simulations
Color Editor allows you to create custom simulations by editing existing simulations and
saving the changes as a new simulation. With Color Editor, you can fine tune a simulation
on your RIP Station to meet your exact specifications. You select a simulation first, then
you edit it.
Color Editor has two Edit Modes for editing simulations: Master and TRI. Use Master
mode to a create custom master simulation that affects all print jobs to which it is applied,
regardless of which of the 15 Print Mode options (see page 44 for a list) you choose for a
particular job.
Use TRI mode to created custom linked simulations that affect the same print job
differently, depending on which Print Mode you choose for that particular job. If you
choose a Print Mode for which you have created a custom linked simulation, that
simulation is automatically applied to the job. If you choose a Print Mode for which there is
no custom linked simulation, then the master simulation is automatically applied.
Page 32
T O EDIT A SIMULATION IN M ASTER MODE :
1.
Open ColorWise Pro Tools and click either Color Editor or Profile Manager.
2.
Choose the simulation you wish to edit and click Select (Color Editor) or Edit (Profile
Manager).
3.
Choose Master from the Edit Mode drop-down menu.
You can use this dialog box to view or edit simulations. The graph allows you to view and
manipulate color output values.
4.
Select the color channels you want to edit by clicking in the white box to the left of the
color.
The eye icon indicates which channels are visible (Cyan and Magenta in the example
below) on the graph and affected by changes to the curve(s) and the brightness and dot gain
controls.
You can view all four channels (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black) at a time or any
combination of the channels. Working with only one or two channels at a time helps you to
fine-tune your adjustments and to edit curves on a monochrome screen.
N OTE : If all channels are turned on initially, they might overlap and be difficult to
distinguish. To see other channels, move or turn off the topmost channel.
Page 33
5.
You can adjust brightness by using the plus and minus buttons.
Changes to the brightness affect the curve(s).
6.
You can adjust the Dot Gain value by clicking the Dot Gain button.
This is used for simulating press output. You can choose either the North American or
European standard. Then use the sliders to select the desired Dot Gain. The valid values for
North American gain at 50% input are 0%-50% output. The valid values for European at
40% input are 0%-59% gain on output; the valid values for European at 80% input are
0%-20% gain on output.
N OTE : If you use Dot Gain values, all existing points on the curve are removed. A warning
dialog box gives you the chance to cancel Dot Gain settings before they are applied.
7.
You can adjust the curves directly by clicking and dragging points on the curve or by
entering numbers directly into the input and output boxes.
The graph maps input percentage to output percentage. The curve you selected appears,
and points along the curve are marked so that you can adjust them.
N OTE : You should only adjust points in this way after you have entered your desired
Brightness and Dot Gain values.
8.
When you are finished, click Save and enter a name for the new simulation.
This saves your custom simulation to the RIP Station. If you edit one of the press standard
targets (for example, SWOP-COM/M, DIC, or Euroscale), you may want to include the
original name as part of the new target name, for example, DIC-New. This helps you
remember what the new target information is based on.
N OTE : Factory profiles are locked and must be saved under a new name.
Custom simulations must be linked to one of the ten predefined custom simulation names
(“Simulation-1”, “Simulation-2”, and so on) in order to be accessible from the printer
driver. You can create as many custom simulations as you want, but a maximum of ten of
these are available from the printer driver at any one time. See “Defining simulation
profiles” on page 41 for information on linking custom simulations to the predefined
simulation names.
N OTE : If you set a custom simulation as the default, you can access it from the printer
driver without linking it to one of the predefined names.
Page 34
T O EDIT A SIMULATION IN TRI MODE :
1.
Open ColorWise Pro Tools and click either Color Editor or Profile Manager.
2.
Choose the simulation you wish to edit and click Select (Color Editor) or Edit (Profile
Manager).
3.
Choose TRI from the Edit Mode drop-down menu and select the Print Mode option with
which your edited simulation will be linked.
In the example above, the Euroscale simulation is being edited for use with the PQ Inkjet
Paper 720 Print Option.
N OTE : Simulations edited in TRI mode must be linked to a specific Print Mode.
4.
Edit and save the simulation as described in step 4 through step 8 on page 32.
If you select this new simulation for a print job for which the Print Mode option is PQ
Inkjet Paper 720, your TRI simulation is automatically applied. If the Print Mode option is
set to something other than PQ Inkjet Paper 720, then the Master simulation is applied.
N OTE : A custom simulation can consist of a custom master simulation and/or up to 15
custom linked simulations (one for each Print Mode).
Page 35
Undoing simulation edits
You can undo the changes you made to simulations (master and linked) in a number of
ways:
• If you have not yet saved your edits, click Done on the Color Editor menu bar, then click
No when prompted to save the changes
• If you have saved your edits under a new simulation name and want to delete all edits (in
both Master and TRI modes) to the simulation, see “To delete simulation profiles from
the RIP Station hard disk:” on page 40.
• If you have saved your edits under a new simulation name and want to undo the edits to
one or more linked simulation, see the following procedure.
T O UNDO EDITS MADE TO A CUSTOM LINKED SIMULATION :
1.
Open ColorWise Pro Tools and click either Color Editor or Profile Manager.
2.
Choose the simulation for which you wish to undo edits and click Select (Color Editor) or
Edit (Profile Manager).
3.
Choose TRI from the Edit Mode drop-down menu and select the Print Mode option with
which your unwanted edits are linked.
In this case, the custom simulation is linked with the Transparencies 360 Print Mode.
Page 36
4.
Click Revert to Master.
N OTE : Revert to Master makes the curves for one or more linked simulations match the last
saved master simulation. If you have edited and saved changes to a master simulation, your
linked simulations will revert to the changed master, not the original.
5.
Indicate whether you want to revert the currently selected linked simulation
(Transparencies 360 in the example) only, or revert all linked simulations, then click OK.
6.
Click OK at the warning dialog box.
The curves for the linked simulation(s) now match the last saved master simulation exactly.
Testing simulations
You can view a printed sample of a simulation before you save it to your RIP Station. You
can print:
• Comparison Page—This page is provided with ColorWise Pro Tools and shows a
comparison of images and colored patches with and without simulation.
• User defined CALIB.PS in Hold Queue— You can create a custom comparison page and
save it as a PostScript or an Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) file called CALIB.PS. Then
print the file to the Hold Queue of the RIP Station from your application or download it
to the Hold Queue with Fiery Downloader.
T O TEST A SIMULATION :
1.
Click Test Print from the Color Editor window.
2.
Specify a page to print and the paper size and input tray (Comparison Page only) and click
Print.
Page 37
Profile Manager
Profile Manager allows you to manage and edit ICC profiles. In the case of the RIP Station,
this means simulations, accepted industry standards for simulating output of a press. You
can print to the RIP Station and your printed output simulates the range of colors a press
would produce.
N OTE : Changing the RIP Station default simulation affects all jobs for all users, so you
might want to limit the number of people authorized to use ColorWise Pro Tools.
Several simulations are provided with the RIP Station, and you can create additional ones as
needed by modifying the existing ones. You can also download simulations from any
workstation to the RIP Station. The simulations provided are:
• SWOP-COM/M— SWOP Commercial 3M Match Print
• SWOP-COM/F— SWOP Commercial FujiColorArt Print
• Euroscale— European press standard
• DIC— Japanese press standard
• DuPont WaterProof ®(PUB, MAT, COM)— Proofing standard for negative commercial
printing
• DuPont Cromalin® (PUB, MAT, COM)— European proofing standard for offset printing
DuPont Color Proofing
The six DuPont qualified simulations— DuPont WaterProof (PUB, MAT, and COM) and
DuPont Cromalin (PUB, MAT, and COM)— were created by DuPont. These simulations
were designed for precise color output that will match the color of these proofing products.
The DuPont Cromalin COM and DuPont WaterProof COM simulations are only valid
when using the DuPont/EPSON Commercial Proofing Paper. The DuPont Cromalin
MAT and DuPont WaterProof MAT simulations are only valid when using the
DuPont/EPSON Matte Proofing Paper. The DuPont Cromalin PUB and DuPont
WaterProof PUB simulations are only valid when using the DuPont/EPSON Publication
Proofing Paper. The use of any other media invalidates the color fidelity and can produce
unpredictable color results.
Setting the default simulation
The default simulation is applied to all print jobs sent to the RIP Station, unless the user
chooses a per-job simulation. Therefore, the default should be the most commonly used
simulation.
Page 38
T O CHOOSE A DEFAULT SIMULATION :
1.
Launch ColorWise Pro Tools and click Profile Manager.
The left-hand side of the screen lists the ICC profiles in the default directory of your
workstation. The right-hand side lists the simulation profiles on the RIP Station.
The lock icon
indicates that these profiles cannot be deleted and can only be edited if
they are saved under a new name. The target icon
indicates the default simulation
profile, in this case SWOP-COM/M.
2.
Click on the profile you want as the default simulation, then click Profile Settings.
3.
In the Simulation Profile Settings dialog box, select CMYK Input under Default for, and
click Apply.
4.
Click OK.
5.
In the main Profile Manager window, the target icon appears next to the new default
simulation.
Page 39
Downloading simulation profiles
The RIP Station comes with ten factory-installed simulation profiles. It is possible to
download additional simulations from any workstation connected to the RIP Station.
T O DOWNLOAD A SIMULATION PROFILE :
1.
Launch ColorWise Pro Tools and click the Profile Manager.
The left-hand side of the main Profile Manager windows lists the ICC profiles in the default
directory of your workstation.
For Windows 95/98, the default directory is \Windows\System\Color
For Windows NT 4.0, the default directory is \Winnt\System32\Color
For Mac OS, the default directory is System Folder:Preferences:ColorSyncTM Profiles if you
have ColorSync 2.0, and System Folder:ColorSyncTM if you have ColorSync 2.5
2.
If the desired profile does not appear, you can browse to a different directory by clicking
Browse.
N OTE : You cannot browse using Mac OS. To access an ICC profile, it must be placed in the
default directory.
3.
Browse to the directory containing the profile you want to download and click OK.
4.
When the profile you wish to download appears in the list in the main Profile Manager
window, select it.
5.
If the profile is compatible with the RIP Station, a green arrow will indicate that the profile
is available for download.
N OTE : All ICC profiles in the selected directory on your workstation are displayed in the
list in the main Profile Manager window. Just because a profile is listed does not mean it can
be downloaded to the RIP Station. Only those profiles with a device class of printer and an
output color space of CMYK are compatible with the RIP Station.
6.
7.
Click the arrow to download the profile.
Click OK when the download is complete.
The new profile now appears on the list of simulation profiles on the right-hand side of the
main Profile Manager window.
Page 40
Before this profile can be applied to a print job, it must be associated with one of the
predefined simulation names (Simulation-1, Simulation-2...Simulation-10) or set as the
default simulation. See “Defining simulation profiles” on page 41.
Editing simulation profiles
The simulation profiles on the RIP Station can be customized to meet your specific needs
and the characteristics of your printer.
Use Color Editor to edit simulations. Color Editor can be accessed either directly or
through Profile Manager. See “Editing Simulations” on page 31 for more information on
how to edit simulation profiles.
Managing simulation profiles
With Profile Manager, you can back up and delete simulation profiles.
N OTE : You can back up and delete only those simulation profiles that appear in the main
Profile manager window without the lock icon next to them.
Back up simulation profiles for safekeeping. You should always back up profiles before
updating RIP Station software to ensure that no custom simulation profiles are lost.
T O BACK UP SIMULATION PROFILES :
1.
2.
Launch ColorWise Pro Tools and click Profile Manager.
Select the simulation profile on the RIP Station that you wish to backup.
The arrow in the middle of the Profile Manager window becomes green and points to the
left, indicating the profile is available for upload.
N OTE : Custom simulation profiles based on DuPont simulations cannot be uploaded.
3.
Click the green arrow, then choose a name and location for the profile and click Save.
4.
Click OK when you are notified that the profile was successfully uploaded.
You can delete simulation profiles to free up disk space on the RIP Station (although
simulation files are small) and to make sure no one uses the wrong simulation profile.
T O DELETE SIMULATION PROFILES FROM THE RIP S TATION HARD DISK :
1.
2.
Launch ColorWise Pro Tools and click Profile Manager.
Select the simulation profile you wish to delete and click Delete.
A Warning dialog box asks you to confirm deletion.
3.
Click Yes to delete the profile.
Page 41
Defining simulation profiles
Before you can apply any downloaded or edited simulation profile to a print job, that
profile must be linked to one of the predefined custom simulation names. There are ten
names available for custom simulations— Simulation-1, Simulation-2,...Simulation-10.
T O DEFINE A SIMULATION PROFILE :
1.
Launch ColorWise Pro Tools and click Profile Manager.
For the purposes of this example, assume DIC-new is a custom profile created with Color
Editor. As you can see, DIC-new has no information under the heading Appear in Driver
as.
2.
Click DIC-new and choose Edit or double-click DIC-new.
3.
Under Appear in Driver as, choose one of the predefined custom simulation names
(Simulation-1...Simulation-10) and click Apply.
Make sure to choose a name that is not already linked with another simulation. If you try to
define two profiles with the same name, you will get an error message.
Page 42
4.
Click OK.
Simulation-1 now appears under the Appear in Driver as heading for DIC-new. Choosing
Simulation-1 from the CMYK Simulation option in the printer driver will apply the
DIC-new simulation to the print job.
Print Options
Print options give you access to the special features of your printer and the RIP Station. You
can specify print options in several places—from the server, from the printing application,
from Fiery Downloader, from Fiery Spooler, and from Fiery WebSpooler. The print options
that have changed are described below and in the table that follows. For information on all
other print options, see the User Guide.
RGB Source Gamma is now called (Other) Gamma. RGB Source Phosphors is now called

Use this option to select a color rendering dictionary (CRD) to be used when you print
RGB images, objects, and text.
Photographic—optimizes the range of colors on the RIP Station to produce the best
results for photographic or bitmapped images.
Presentation—optimizes the output of pure, saturated colors such as those used in business
presentations.
Color Proofing (Photo)—for CMYK printing provides a close match to the device being
simulated, regardless of the media being used. Also good for printing RGB images.
Color Proofing (Solid)—for CMYK printing provides the closest match to the device
being simulated, including rendering the paper color as the background.

Administrator Guide
This section of the addendum updates areas of the Administrator Guide for the RIP Station.
There were some changes to Chapter 2, “Setting up the RIP Station” and a whole section
has been added on using Fiery WebSetup.
Setting up the RIP Station
The only change to the process of setting up the RIP Station is the Color Setup options
available from the Control Panel.
Color Setup options
Color Setup options allow you to set the parameters the RIP Station uses to control color
output.
T O ACCESS C OLOR S ETUP OPTIONS :
1.
In the main Setup menu on the RIP Station Control Panel, choose Color Setup.
2.
Enter the options appropriate to the printing requirements at your site.
3.
When you have finished, save the changes.
In the list of options that follows, default values, where applicable, appear in square
brackets.
RGB Source
EFIRGB/sRGB (PC)/Apple Standard/Off [EFIRGB]
The RGB source is the color space used to control color for conversion from screen to
printed output. EFIRGB is based on the reference points used in the creation of the
RIP Station software. sRGB is based on an average of a large number of PC monitors. Apple
Standard is the standard reference point for Apple’s ColorSync software.
Rendering Style (formerly called Default CRD)
Photographic/Presentation/Color Proofing (Photo)/Color Proofing (Solid)
[Color Proofing (Photo)]
Rendering Style defines how color is converted from RGB and CMYK data to printed output. Photographic, designed for images, retains the relative balance between colors to maintain the overall appearance of the image. Presentation, designed for bright colors, produces
the saturated prints needed for most business presentations. Color Proofing (Photo) and
Color Proofing (Solid) are both good for proofing CMYK print jobs. The main difference is
that Color Proofing (Solid) simulates not only the device, but also the paper color.
Page 46
CMYK Simulation (formerly called Press Simulation)

With CMYK simulation, you can simulate commercial presses or other proofing methods
by applying the factory profiles. You can also simulate virtually any CMYK printing device
by downloading and applying that device’s profile. The SWOP standard is used in the
United States, DIC in Japan, and Euroscale in Europe. The DuPont WaterProof® simulations are the proofing standard for negative commercial printing. The DuPont Cromalin®
simulations are the European proofing standard for offset printing. Custom simulation
standards are user defined and named.
Pure Black Text/Graphics
On/Off [On]
The Pure Black Text/Graphics option optimizes black text and line art. The option may
minimize ink use for documents consisting of a mixture of color and black-only pages.
With this option On, black text and line art are printed with black ink only. With the
option Off, black text and line art are printed using all four colors of ink.
Save Changes
Yes/No [Yes]
Select Yes to activate any changes made in Color Setup; select No to return to the main
Setup menu without making any changes.
Using Fiery WebSetup
After you have performed initial Setup (Server, Network, and Printer Setup) from the
Control Panel, you can complete or change most Setup options using Fiery WebSetup via
an Internet or intranet connection to the RIP Station.
N OTE : Fiery WebSetup is available for Windows 95/98 and Windows NT 4.0 computers
only.
RIP Station Setup from Fiery WebSetup
After changing Setup option settings from Fiery WebSetup, you must reboot the
RIP Station before your changes take effect. See page 59 for instructions.
T O ACCESS F IERY W EB S ETUP :
1.
Launch your browser application and enter the IP address of the RIP Station.
2.
If prompted for a Fiery WebTools login level, select Administrator, enter the Administrator
password, and click OK.
3.
When the RIP Station home page appears, click the WebSetup button.
Page 47
4.
Click one of the Setup buttons: Server Setup, Network Setup, or Printer Setup.
Refer to the following sections for more information.
Server Setup
From this window, you can access Server Setup, Password, and Job Log Setup.
Server Setup
Server Name—Enter a name for the RIP Station (up to ten characters long). This is also the
server name you should enter when you configure the connection to the server over
IPX/SPX. (See Getting Started.) Each time you change the Server Name, you will need to
modify the connection on other workstations that are using the Fiery utilities.
N OTE : Do not use the device name (Pro5000) as the server name. Also, if you have multiple
RIP Station servers and give them the same name, a unique number is appended to the
name that appears in the list of available servers. Although this routes jobs correctly, it may
be inconvenient to users and is not a recommended practice.
Page 48
Print Start Page—Select to specify that the RIP Station should print a start page every time
it restarts. The start page displays information about the RIP Station including the server
name, current date and time, Color Mode, Printer Mode, amount of memory installed in
the RIP Station, last calibration date, network protocols enabled, and connections enabled.
Enable Printed Queue—Select to enable the Printed queue, which creates a storage location
on the RIP Station disk for recent jobs. Users with Administrator privileges can print jobs
from the Printed queue without sending them to the RIP Station again. If you disable the
Printed queue, jobs are deleted immediately after printing.
Jobs Saved in Printed Queue—Enter the number of jobs (from 1 to 99) to be saved in the
Printed queue. Jobs in the Printed queue take up space on the RIP Station hard disk.
Time—Enter the correct system time, based on a 24-hour clock, in the form HH:MM
(Hours:Minutes). The time is used on the cover page and on Job Logs.
Date—Enter the correct system date. The date is used on the cover page and on Job Logs.
If you enter a number that is out of range in either the Time or the Date field, for example,
17 in the month field, you are prompted, when you dismiss the Server Setup menu, to enter
a number that is in range.
Use Character Set—Specify whether the Control Panel should use the Macintosh, DOS, or
Windows character set for displaying filenames. This is important if a filename includes
accented or composite characters (such as é, ü, or æ).
For mixed-platform networks, select the option that gives the best overall representation of
the special characters you use.
Passwords
In the Password tab, you can enter, change, or remove the Administrator password.
If the password already exists, it appears as asterisks in both the Enter New Password and
Verify New Password text boxes. If no password exists, the boxes are blank.
Page 49
TO SET , CHANGE , OR REMOVE PASSWORDS :
1.
To enter a new password, type the password in the Enter New Password field.
Passwords can be any combination of up to 19 characters.
2.
When prompted, enter the new password in the Verify New Password field.
The new password remains in effect until you change it. If a password already exists, the
new entry replaces it. To remove a password, simply select and delete its asterisks.
You can also set or change the Administrator password with Setup from the Control Panel.
N OTE : By default, no passwords are set on the RIP Station. If you do not set passwords, all
users will have access to important functions such as Setup (including setting passwords)
and clearing the server. It is strongly recommended that you set an Administrator password to
protect the server from accidental or incorrect changes to Setup.
If you forget the Administrator password, contact your authorized service representative to
reinstall RIP Station system software. This will clear the Administrator password and allow
you to set a new one.
Job Log Setup
Auto Print Job Log every 55 Jobs—Specify whether you want the RIP Station to print the
Job Log after every 55 jobs. The Job Log displays a list of the last 55 jobs processed on the
RIP Station, with accounting information about each one, including user name, document
name, time and date printed, number of pages, and other job information.
Auto Clear Job Log every 55 Jobs—Specify whether you want to clear the RIP Station Job
Log after every 55 jobs. If you do not turn on this option, the RIP Station saves a file containing a record of all jobs ever printed. Since this file takes up space on the RIP Station
hard disk, clearing the Job Log frees up additional disk space.
You can clear the Job Log manually at any time from Fiery WebSpooler or Fiery Spooler (by
selecting Delete Job Log from the File menu). The Job Log is also cleared when you execute
the Clear Server command, when you choose Clear Server from the main Setup menu, or
when system software is installed or reinstalled on the RIP Station.
Job Log Page Size—Select the size of paper you want to print the Job Log on.
Page 50
Network Setup
You can modify most of the Network Setup options— including Port Setup, Protocol
Setup, PServer Setup, and Service Setup— from Fiery WebSetup.
T O CONFIGURE P ORT S ETUP :
•
Click the Port Setup tab in the Network Setup dialog box.
You can then adjust settings as detailed in the following sections.
Port Setup (Ethernet)
Enable Ethernet—Select if the RIP Station is to be connected to an Ethernet network.
Transmission Speed—Select Auto Detect if your network environment is mixed, or select
the speed (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps) of the network to which the RIP Station is attached.
The options 10 Mbps TP and 10 Mbps AUI refer to how the Ethernet cable is connected,
either through twisted pair cable or the AUI.
Port Setup (Parallel Port)
Enable Parallel Port—Select if you want to print through the parallel port. You can connect
a single Windows computer to the parallel port and print directly to the RIP Station.
N OTE : Enabling the parallel port does not conflict with using Ethernet communication with
the RIP Station.
Ignore EOF Character—Available only if Enable Parallel Port is selected, this option specifies
that the RIP Station should ignore end-of-file (EOF) messages. Check this box to print
PostScript files in binary format (not ASCII); under normal circumstances, the box should
not be checked. When this option is selected, the RIP Station uses the parallel port timeout
value to determine when the end of the file has been reached.
Parallel Port Timeout (seconds)—Available only if Enable Parallel Port is selected, this set-
ting determines how long the RIP Station waits without receiving data from the parallel
port before deciding that the current job is complete. Until the timeout, the RIP Station
cannot receive new jobs through the parallel port, but it can continue to receive network
print jobs.
Page 51
Port Setup (Token Ring)
A Token Ring option is not available for the RIP Station. Therefore, these Setup options
cannot be selected.
T O CONFIGURE P ROTOCOL S ETUP :
•
Click the Protocol Setup tab in the Network Setup window.
The RIP Station can accept jobs via TCP/IP (over Ethernet only), AppleTalk, and IPX/SPX
simultaneously. To configure the RIP Station, choose each protocol and enter the settings
for that protocol.
Protocol Setup (TCP/IP)
Enable on Ethernet—Click to enable if you have a TCP/IP network connected to the
RIP Station over Ethernet cabling.
You must enable TCP/IP for Ethernet to use Fiery WebTools over Ethernet. If you are
using TCP/IP for printing from Windows NT 4.0 workstations, enabling TCP/IP here also
enables you to use Fiery utilities from Windows NT 4.0 workstations using TCP/IP protocols.
IP Address (Ethernet)—Enter the RIP Station IP address for Ethernet. You must change
the default 127.0.0.1 to a valid address for your network. For information about setting up
printing with TCP/IP, see Chapter 3 in the Administrator Guide.
Subnet Mask (Ethernet)—If you need to set the subnet mask, enter one of the following
values:
• 255.0.0.0 if the IP address starts with a number less than 128
• 255.255.0.0 if the IP address starts with a number from 128 through 191
• 255.255.255.0 if the IP address starts with a number greater than 191
N OTE : Be sure to confirm the subnet mask setting with your network administrator before
proceeding. In some cases, the required setting may be different from those listed.
Page 52
Gateway—If your TCP/IP network has a gateway, and users outside the gateway print to
the RIP Station using TCP/IP, enter the gateway address here. Obtain the correct gateway
address from your network administrator.
Protocol Setup (AppleTalk)
Enable AppleTalk—Select to enable Apple Talk if you have an AppleTalk network con-
nected to the RIP Station. This setting enables the RIP Station to communicate over
AppleTalk networks.
Select Zone—The RIP Station searches the network for AppleTalk zones in your network
segment. Scroll through the list to select the AppleTalk zone in which you want the
RIP Station to appear. If your segment has only one zone, the RIP Station is assigned to
that zone automatically.
If no AppleTalk zone can be found, your network may have no defined zones, or else the
network cable has not been connected (see Chapter 4 in the Administrator Guide).
Protocol Setup (IPX Frames)
Select Frames—Click the Select Frames button to specify IPX frames used with NetWare.
See your network administrator to verify which frame type to choose.
In the IPX Frames dialog box, select frames and use the Add and Remove buttons to specify
the selected frames, then click OK.
Page 53
T O CONFIGURE PS ERVER S ETUP :
•
Click the PServer Setup tab in the Network Setup window.
You can modify both NetWare 3.x (Bindery) and NetWare 4.x (NDS) configurations from
Fiery WebSetup. Turn on the Enable NDS option if your network uses NetWare 4.x in
native mode. Click Bindery Setup if your network uses NetWare 3.x or uses NetWare 4.x in
bindery emulation mode.
N OTE : If your network uses both NDS and Bindery, set up NDS first. Setting up NDS after
Bindery will overwrite Bindery Setup. If your network uses both NDS and Bindery, including using NetWare 4.x servers in bindery emulation, the RIP Station cannot service NDS
and bindery emulation servers on the same NDS tree.
PServer Setup (NetWare Services)
The Enable PServer option must be turned on if you have a Novell server connected. You
can, however, change the PServer polling interval and then modify either Bindery Setup or
NDS Configuration.
PServer Setup (NDS Configuration)
In initial setup, the RIP Station was connected to the network and an NDS directory tree,
with a Printer, a Print Server, and one or more Print Queue objects for RIP Station jobs (see
Chapter 3 in the Administrator Guide), was configured. You can make any changes to that
setup through Fiery WebSetup. To modify NDS Setup you may need permission to browse
the NDS tree. If access to the Print Server is restricted, you’ll need a login password.
Note that the terms NetWare server, Novell server, and IPX server are in common use and
are used here interchangeably to mean the server on an IPX network running Novell
NetWare networking software.
Enable NDS
Check this box to enable NDS. Uncheck this box only to remove
NDS support.
Change Trees...
Click to open the Add NDS Tree window. This option is available

• LPD Printing Service enables lpd printing on TCP/IP networks.
• Web Services enables the http protocol and, therefore, use of Fiery WebTools.
Page 56
Service Setup (Windows Printing Service)
For setting up the Windows printing service, these characters are allowed in the text fields:
uppercase letters, numerals, space, and the following characters:
-_.~!@#$%^&(){}\',
N OTE : Lowercase letters are not allowed, except in the Comment field.
Enable Windows Printing Service—Select to enable SMB (Server Message Block), the file
and printer sharing protocol built into Windows. Enabling SMB allows the RIP Station to
be listed on the network so that Windows clients can print to a particular print connection
(Hold, Print, or Direct) on the RIP Station without any other networking software. For
information on how to set up a Windows client for Windows printing, see “Completing
the SMB printing connection for Windows 95/98” on page 4.
N OTE : Windows (SMB) printing runs over TCP/IP, so TCP/IP must be configured on the
RIP Station and on all workstations that use Windows printing.
Server Name—The server name is the name that will appear on the network. It can, but
does not have to, be the same name as the server name assigned in Server Setup (see Chapter 2 in the Administrator Guide and page 47 of this addendum).
Comment—Server comments (optional) can contain information about the printer. Lowercase letters are allowed in this field.
Domain or Workgroup—Enter the workgroup or domain in which you want the
RIP Station to appear.
Use WINS Server—Select to use a WINS name server. Broadcasts from SMB devices cannot
be routed beyond their original network segment without a WINS name server. Setting up
the WINS name server is outside the scope of this manual. To find out if a name server is

jobs to the Direct connection and download and delete printer fonts. Jobs printed to the
Direct connection are not available to be reprinted from the Printed queue.
N OTE : The Direct connection must be published to download fonts.
Publish Hold Queue—Select to enable users to print jobs to the Hold queue. Jobs printed to
the Hold queue are not processed until the administrator releases them for printing from
Fiery Spooler or WebSpooler. To enable Fiery utilities, you must publish the Hold queue,
regardless of whether users send jobs to the Hold queue.
Publish Print Queue—Select to enable users to print jobs to the Print queue. Jobs printed to
the Print queue are spooled on the RIP Station disk.
Parallel Connection—This option is available only if the parallel port has been enabled and
you have published one or more print connections (Print queue, Hold queue, or Direct
connection). This setting determines where jobs printed to the parallel port are sent. If only
one queue has been published, parallel port jobs are automatically printed to that print connection.

T O SET C OLOR AND P APER S ETUP OPTIONS :
•
Click the Color and Paper Setup tab in the Printer Setup window.
Color and Paper Setup
Color Mode—Specifies the default color mode to be used: Color or Grayscale. Before performing calibration on the RIP Station, select Color as the Color Mode.
Default Paper Sizes—Specify whether to print on US paper sizes (for example, letter, legal,
tabloid), or Metric paper sizes (for example, A4, B4, A3) by default. When no page size is
defined within a PostScript file, jobs are printed on letter paper if you select US, or A4 paper
if you select Metric.
Allow Courier Substitution—Specify whether to substitute Courier for unavailable fonts. If
this option is set to No, jobs with fonts that are not available on the RIP Station hard disk
will not print due to a PostScript error.
Print to PS Error—Specify whether the RIP Station should print the available portion of a
print job when it encounters a PostScript error. Select Yes to print the portion of the job
that was processed before the error occurred; select No to cancel the job entirely whenever a
PostScript error is encountered.
RGB Source—The RGB source is the color space used to control color for conversion from
screen to printed output. EFIRGB, which is the default, is based on the reference points used
in the creation of the RIP Station software; sRGB (PC) is based on an average of a large number of PC monitors; and Apple Standard is the standard reference point for Apple’s ColorSync software.
Pure Black Text/Graphics—Select On to print black text and graphics as one color black,
using 100% black ink only. Select Off to print black text and graphics using all four colors
of ink.

Click the Reboot Server button.
Color Printing Guide
This section of the addendum updates areas of the Color Printing Guide for the RIP Station.
Changes took place in Chapter 2 “Color Management.”
Color Management
The “Color Management” chapter provided information on how to control and manage
color output with the objective of achieving predictable color results. ColorWise Pro Tools
provides a new way to meet this goal. See “Using ColorWise Pro Tools” on page 29.
RIP Station color management
As discussed elsewhere in this addendum, some of the RIP Station color management
options have changed for version 1.3 of the software.
RIP Station color print options and settings:
What it does

Color Proofing (Solid)
(Default set at Setup)
Applies a RIP Station color rendering style (CRD) to RGB data (see
below). This setting is also applied to CMYK data when a CMYK
Simulation setting other than None is specified (see page 60).

Simulation-1 through Simulation-10/None
(Default set at Setup)
Adjusts CMYK color data to simulate an offset press standard or a
custom color gamut defined at your site. Choosing None bypasses
simulation (see page 60). If you choose any setting other than None,
specify one of the Color Proofing rendering styles.
Page 60
Rendering styles
The Rendering Style option is used to specify a CRD for color conversions. The following
table describes the various color rendering styles (CRDs) provided with RIP Station
software and provides guidelines on when to use each one. Each color rendering style uses a
different gamut mapping method designed for a particular kind of color usage.
RIP Station rendering style:
Best used for:
Equivalent
ICC rendering style:
Photographic—Preserves tonal relationships in images
rather than exact colors. This rendering style maps out-ofgamut RGB colors to printable colors in a way that retains
differences in lightness. Color accuracy is sacrificed slightly
in favor of presenting color relationships in the way the
human eye perceives them. Photographic rendering
typically gives less saturated output when printing out-ofgamut RGB colors than Solid Color rendering does.
Continuous tone photographs,
including scans and images from
stock photography CDs
Image and Contrast and
Perceptual
Presentation—Creates bright saturated colors. This
rendering style does not try to match printed colors
precisely to displayed colors but instead provides vibrant,
dense colors. Photographic images, however, are treated the
same way as by the Photographic rendering style.
Artwork and graphs in presentations
and continuous tone photographs
Saturation and Graphics
Color Proofing (Photo)— Provides a close match to the
CMYK device being simulated, regardless of the media
being used.
Prepress proofing when a background
color is not desired.
Relative Colorimetric
Color Proofing (Solid)— Provides the closest match to the
CMYK device being simulated, including rendering the
paper color as the background.
The most accurate prepress proofing.
Absolute Colorimetric
CMYK Simulation
The CMYK Simulation print option allows you to print press proofs or simulations. This
option affects CMYK data only.
The CMYK Simulation setting specifies the offset press standard or other color gamut that
you want to simulate. You can also create up to ten custom simulations using ColorWise
Pro Tools (see “Using ColorWise Pro Tools” on page 29).
The CMYK Simulation setting you should specify depends on the press standard for which
the CMYK data was separated. For example, for images that were separated for DIC,
choose DIC as the CMYK Simulation setting. For images that were separated using a
custom separation (such as a device-specific separation or a separation produced with an
ICC-profile), choose None as the CMYK Simulation setting.
The CMYK Simulation setting also determines whether or not CMYK data is affected by
the Rendering Style setting (see page 60).
• With a CMYK Simulation other than None, choose one of the Color Proofing
Rendering Styles.
• With None as the CMYK Simulation, the CMYK data is converted to device-ready color
data using a default PostScript conversion scheme.
