Onyx Poster Shop

Onyx PosterShop

Streamline Job Management
PosterShop includes support for two printers with multiple Hot Folders, used for specifying job properties. Print directly from your creative application. Or drag and drop jobs into the appropriate Hot Folder and, when the system detects an available printer matching the job properties, printing begins automatically.

Onyx Preflight

Preflight Puts Everything at Your Fingertips
Preflight is easy to navigate and easy to use. Key actions and controls are located in the main tabs. It shows you the final output color on your screen, saving you the hassle of printing to see the final colors.

Scale, Crop, Rotate, Apply Custom Tiling to Images
Pre-flight with professional tools that let you perform difficult tasks easily and with consistent results from one job to the next. Interactive sizing, cropping and custom tiling, as well as full pan and zoom, instantly shows on your display.

Make Color Corrections on the Fly
Adapt easily and quickly to your customers’ subjective view of color. Novice and expert users alike will find an intuitive color correction toolset that lets you quickly and easily make changes without leaving PosterShop. Change brightness, saturation and contrast for the image globally, or individually affect highlight, mid-tones and shadows. Powerful CMYK and HSV tools allow more advanced users to fine tune images to meet the demands of the most exacting clients. View up to four color filters at once to compare changes, or select a specific color – or a range of colors – and replace it with another to fine tune even the most difficult prints. All without touching the original file.

Superior Printer Driver Support
Not only does PosterShop come with a comprehensive set of small, medium and large format printer drivers, Onyx Graphics works closely with printer manufacturers to ensure superior printer support. PosterShop printers drivers are the best in the industry and provide you award-winning color quality with maximum performance.

Manage Medias and Calibrate As Needed
PosterShop includes an impressive range of default media and reference ICC profiles. With PosterShop, you can recalibrate your printer to your media as needed in response to changing print conditions. In addition, you can import and apply custom ICC profiles, as well as create and edit density calibration tables and control ink restrictions.

Easy, flexible Contour Cutting Workflow
Printing and cutting has never been easier or more profitable. Now you can take standard PostScript® files with contour cut paths and print them on any printer, then cut on any of a range of industry contour cutting devices, including Gerber®, Graphtec™, Mutoh® Ultima™, Mimaki®, Roland®, Summa®, and Generic cutters. You can also use standard inkjet Print and Cut devices from Graphtec® and Roland® to easily print-and-cut jobs.

Whether you’re already offering print and cut services or don’t know anything about it, PosterShop offers the best workflow. Not only can you nest, resize and copy contour cutting print jobs, but you can also tile them right within the PosterShop workflow. The RIP-Queue automatically adjusts the contour files and handles all of the details.

PosterShop maximizes your flexibility when printing and cutting contours, by completely handling the printing of "registration marks" recognized by many "electric eye" cutters. The RIP-Queue prints these specific marks needed by your contour cutter on any of the hundreds of different printers that it supports. Registration is then automatic when you use the Onyx CUT-Server to cut out the job after printing.

An optional barcode reader can automate the process even further, so operators can get more cut jobs out flawlessly.

Web Portal for Web-based Print Job Management
Manage your print jobs from any computer on your network with a web browser. You can also submit jobs from a PC, Mac, or Unix-based compatible web browser on your network.

Onyx Web Portal

PosterColor™ is a proprietary color rendering technology that gives CMYK posters brilliant-looking saturated colors when you apply ICC profiles. Many print operators know that applying ICC profiles will dull-down the colors in CMYK print jobs. With PosterColor™ you get the gray-balancing and hue matching benefits of ICC color management, but with the fully-saturated look that your printer inks can actually achieve.
