UltraLink adds the capability of processing and recording PostScript
output to your scanner's record drum. Macrotech has combined the power
of the Harlequin PowerPC PostScript software RIP (Raster Image
Processor) with UltraLink to provide the most reliable and capable
PostScript interface upgrade. Turning your record drum into an
imagesetting device is an excellent cost effective solution, especially
for large format recording.
UltraLink can be utilized in a wide range of workflow configurations.
PostScript output can originate from any variety of sources including
OPI solutions. The Harlequin software RIP can run on the same desktop
computer controlling output, or in a variety of other configurations.
The UltraLink software can run in the background, allowing concurrent
execution while preparing the next job.
UltraLink's flexibility allows line screen rulings selected in the
software RIP to be chosen independent of output resolution. Combined
with the high performance of Fibre Channel, UltraLink can output at high
resolutions that exceed the capability of SCSI based interfaces.
Unlike other interfaces that restrict you to a fixed layout
configuration, Macrotech's UltraLink provides the ability to output
arbitrary number and size combinations of post RIP files. The software
can automatically optimize the layout placement and display the results
in an easy-to-view graphical representation that can be reviewed or
edited. Use this feature to conserve film and time while the operator
performs other tasks during recording operations!
