Linux & Mac

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, colour 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.

Client/server architecture

Benefits :

  • Consolidates to one RIP platform
  • Reduces training time and confusion
  • Increases throughput and colour homogeneity
  • Purchase one update for all machines
  • Cost efficient
