Information Presentation Technologies Inc. next week expects to release TurboRIP, its new PostScript 3 RIP server.

The $11,400 RIP software is based on Adobe Systems Inc.'s CPSI (Configurable PostScript Software Interpreter) and runs on Windows NT servers. IPT said the RIP supports a variety of imagesetters and output formats. It also handles Portable Document Format files.

The company provides a set of cross-platform, Java-based client tools to manage TurboRIP over a network. Users can adjust controls for screening, CMYK separations, calibration and device setup, and they can administer the processing of print jobs in the spool. The client can display a queued job page by page before it is sent to the output device, IPT said.

A version for Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Solaris workstation is due in the first quarter of 1998, the company said. The high-performance server software is expected to cost from $9,000 to $15,000.

The RIP is one component of IPT's Prepress Factory, the company's new NT-based suite of tools for prepress work flows. The programs include the $3,995 CanOPI Open Prepress Interface server; the $399 ImageProof proofing utility; and the $3,995 ImpozeIt imposition application. The entire suite is available for $18,995; each tool is also sold separately.
