Adding a proofing plug-in to a Navigator Harlequin RIP closes the color proofing loop, ensuring data integrity.


Navigator supports a wide variety of proofing options, including the most popular ink-jet proofers from Epson and HP. Adding a proofing plug-in to a Navigator Harlequin RIP closes the color proofing loop, ensuring data integrity. The same RIP used for proofing processes the final output to film or plate.

All Xitron Proofing Plug-ins include ColorPro, Global Graphic’s built-in color management system. ColorPro supplies a full range of color management tools, providing accuracy in color output through targets such as SWOP®, FOGRA, and Gracol®. ColorPro will also accept custom ICC profiles generated for specific needs. For a list of supported proofers, click the supported devices link on the right.
