Plates mating
and display system

A revolutionary tool
for newspaper's pages management and plates production.


Remote operation. The settings allow, if necessary, the remote operation. This means, a part of it is in the redaction room and the rest in the printing plant.

RIP. The problems and errors with the PS/EPS files are detected. After the RIP process, the component in the page turn into images and there will be no more mistakes.

Homogeneous output. As there is no human action in the output, film recorders load is as homogenous as possible. When there are pages ready for film, they go to the first free exit, watching only that all the separations of a same page go to the same exit.

Error verification. As the images created in the Plateviewer are taken after the RIP, what the use see is exactly whay is going to be printed. There the user will be abble to see possible mistakes in types, texts, colors, overlappings, etc. As the page presentation is made by Intranet (Internet browser), the page control and acceptance can be delegated to redaction if wanted.

Customizable Work flow. Depending on the wanted work flow, the user can get the approval for simple pages (tabloides) or for the imposed ones (standard) or work without page approval.

Softproof before publishing. Calibrated page Preview (using ICC/ICM) which allows the user to take a look to a "softproof" on screen exactly as what will be published.

Ink Control. On screen ink density porcentage measurement, Max density control and low level alarm.

Keep the recieved pages and the generated pages. Compares different page versions, and lets the user know what changes where made between one and the other.

Tags. Tag placement, to print in the plate information about its content (page number, booklet, rotative unit, etc) and/or images (marks, color scales, greys). Controls in which plate it is applied.

Record in Gant Diagram format that enables the user to view the moment in which each page is recieved, when is imposed, when the plate is generated. It helps to notice each page's closure, it's changes and the booklets/product closure.

Impositions. It operates with imposition one on one (Sheet page on sheet plate), two on one (tabloide pages on sheet plate or sheet pages on panorama plates) y 4 en 1 (tabloide pages on panorama plate)


RIP: It's fuction is to turn all the formats into one format. It takes pages of a variety of formats (PS, EPS, PDF, TIFF) from the production systems and delivers the pages in one format TIFF with compression CCITT IV group. It delivers a file for each color separation.

“Bridge” distributor: It's fuction is to regulariza the name and information of each page that is created in the RIP (product, page number, color, publication date, etc) and distribute them in files according to this data. It's function is to create in the data base the necessary structures for the page's process and follow.

“SDPlateViewer”, lets the user take pages already RIPped (in TIFF CCITT G4), compose the four plates (if it working with color) and create the "viewfiles" of the RIPed pages that are visibles through Intranet from the browser.

“PlateViewerWeb”: Its a control and view tool for the daily production of each of the products, their pages and each color separation in them. It allows the user to approve or reject the page, place a comment, detect differences between the versions of the same page, make a hard-proof and view the status of each page of a product in a time-line.

“Page Pairing”. It's function is to take tabloid pages and deliver "standard" sheet pages. To do this, the function is programed with the products to be made and it's pages number. It allows tag adding in the pages, as printers marks, bar codes with the page's data and color, so that the page can be identified and tracked.

“Page administrator”: It's function is to search and find in the files the entrance of page to print. It manages the printing priorities, making sure that the exists are always working at their top capacity and that all the separations of a same page are printed in the same CTP.
