Compose have several popular Press Room solutions that brings together Press Control, accurated ink key control for presses and ink optimisation. Furthermore we also provide standardiation solution to meet different customer requirement, helping to save valuable setup time, reducing wastage, resulting in saving cost as well as increasing productivity.
Express InkScript is a comprehensive solution for ink key presetting. It reads 1-bit tiff file from RIPs, analyzes and generates CIP3 files for the ink control unit. It can also read CIP3 data files in from selected front end system, ready for the ink control unit to set the ink key value on the press. From the 1-bit tiff file, it calculates the ink density and output in PDF file or print out on Laser printers for users to base on the hard copy to preset their presses. There is a server-client option which is most flexible for ink key presetting on a multiple presses environment. Express InkScript enhances your press productivity by shortening the setup times, reducing paper and ink wastage, and turning your press tightly integrated with modern production system. Details
InkScript Connect is a popular solution to link-up most of the common press console to receive Ink Key preset value via Ethernet. It can read CIP3 data files from selected front end prepress system, and deliver accurate Ink Key value to match press characteristics without operator interference. It offers the most flexible conditions for ink key presetting, especially on a multiple presses environment. Together with IS Connect Loop option, it enables the automatic measurement and evaluation of control strips, as well as the continuous transmission of computed correction values directly to the printing machine during production. InkScript Connect works with a wide range of printing consoles. It can totally improves your productivity by shortening setup times, reducing paper and ink wastage, and turning your press tightly integrated with modern prepress system. Details
Compose’s InkScript Optimizer is a Preflight, Standardization and Optimization software for four color separation files. It allows designers and prepress companies to quickly and accurately produce documents for problem-free printing. Printers gain the capability to control and improve the printability of files containing four color separations, by optimizing the separation according to the actual process/press/paper. Standardized files using InkScript Optimizer will generate reproducible proofs as well as plates and cylinders that allow optimum printability and runability on press. Details
pressSIGN tests and controls the litho printing process to give consistently accurate color. Using pressSIGN dramatically reduces make-ready times and increases print quality. Matching international printing standards such as ISO 12647 is easy. pressSIGN uses the low cost X-Rite Eye-One Pro spectrophotometer or a variety of spectrophotometers that scan the whole press sheet and provides a step-by-step guide for accurate color.

The Star Plate system is designed to be an economic, easy-to-use platesetter for printers. It images on special coated conventional PS, positive, aluminum plate by jetting the UltraChrome™ Photo Black ink on an Epson’s large format printer. The Star Plate system is driven by the specialized Star Plate RIP resident on a Mac computer and capable of producing plates for most jobs performed by small, medium to large format presses. Details
