High performance levels

Featuring an Intel Core Duo T2500 2.0 GHz processor with up to 1GB of RAM, the imagePASS A1 offers fast processing speeds and supports a wide variety of file formats, embracing the diversity of data produced in digital colour production.

SmartRIP 2 technology uses highly intelligent processing to increase RIP performance, delivering the smoothest lines and crispest text at high resolution. Significant multitasking capabilities also ensure that the imagePASS A1 can concurrently RIP one print job, whilst processing another, for deadline beating results.

Stunning quality

Pre-press tasks are aided with the help of ColorWise 3. This next generation colour management system enables extensive colour controls, from calibration to ICC profile management, as well as spot processing and greater processing for printing. When a file has a mixture of CMYK and RGB data, it's possible to control each type of data independently.

Outstanding document control tools

Command Workstation 5, provided with your imagePASS A1 makes light production more intuitive and flexible than ever. It enables centralised job management, connects to servers on the network, and achieves optimal results for increased job productivity. The user-friendly interface features extensive drag-and-drop capabilities; meaning even operators with limited skills can confidently manage sophisticated workflows.

Hot folders are also available, allowing files to be dragged and dropped to folders with pre-configured settings, saving time - particularly when processing more complex jobs.
