Roland DG Announces VersaWorks 6 RIP Software Update with New Features for Improved Efficiency

Hamamatsu, Japan, June 24, 2020 - Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and printer cutters, today announced that it has released the latest version of its VersaWorks 6 RIP software for inkjet printers and initiated a free upgrade service for customers using compatible models.

Included with Roland DG’s inkjet printers and printer cutters, VersaWorks 6 RIP & Print Management Software is designed to maximise the characteristics of printer, ink and media to enable high-quality printing and improved efficiency for print production. The latest version includes important new features, such as a “Job Assistant” function that allows customers to automatically add graphic contour cut lines in VersaWorks 6 without returning to the design software. The new “True Rich Color” print setting takes full advantage of the colour reproduction capabilities of both printer and ink to create stunning graphics with vibrant colour combined with neutral greys, smooth gradations, and natural skin tones. In addition, VersaWorks 6 is equipped with several new functions that improve the quality and efficiency of output operations, including compatibility with Barbieri's latest spectrophotometer tools for colour management.

Kevin Shigenoya, Vice President, Digital Printing Business Division, said, "By providing our users with the latest version of VersaWorks 6, we believe that we can strongly support our customers' printing businesses in terms of both quality and efficiency. In addition to the printer itself, we will support our customers' creativity by offering a total solution that includes software and application assistance."
