02 Layout Preview
This is where all submitted jobs are managed and processed for output to the connected printer. It includes all the features and functionalities of a high end print server. All incoming jobs are checked against the currently loaded media size and type. Any mismatch detected such as the wrong media type will automatically hold the corresponding jobs till the right media type is loaded. Similarly if an incoming job cannot be fitted to the current media size then it will also be held till the right roll size is loaded. Jobs that are sent for automatic nesting on the same media are efficiently grouped and nested together. Nested jobs can be examined and manually edited if required.
04 Wall Art
The unique and comprehensive function for designing eye catching canvas arrangements and wall paper production. In this mode of operation users have the freedom and the tools to create canvas designs that are simply works of art. Simulated view of the design in room situation can be realized for customer approval including 3D rendering of all canvases wrap. Additionally the background image can be divided into tiles of user defined sizes with or without overlaps. If employing a printer that can print in borderless mode then the operator can specify this option that will automatically adjust and compensate for all the shifts and edge to edge printing.
06 Accurate Preview
Preview of the selected images shown in this module is an accurate rendering of the image as it would be printed using the selected media profile. This so called ‘Soft Proof’ can help the operator to examine and decide the course of action before commiting to an actual print that can result in wasted time, ink and media. Additionally the user can see the colours that are out of the gamut (painted in pink) and can not be reproduced accurately, Gamut Warning. It is also possible to view the colours of the printed image based on the actual media white point if required. By changing the media profile the user can refresh the preview to see the effect of the new setting.
08 Picture Framing
A comprehensive set of tools is available here for designing user defined borders of any dimensions and colour that is then applied to selected images. Up to four borders for inner and outer perimeters of the image can be devised. Additionally custom framing feature enable users to select and add from a list of standard and user frames to simulate the finished job. Canvas jobs requiring wraps of various types and sizes can also be easily made if required. Image manipulation including zoom and pan can be utilised to size and position images within the frames exactly as needed.
10 Wallpaper Design
A very powerful and useful feature of the Studio application is the ability to tile and divide large images to required panel sizes for wallpaper prints. User can specify the required tile sizes as well as any overlap required. These overlaps can then aid the accurate mounting of the wallpaper on the wall. Tiles can automatically be sized for uniform tiling or any user-defined values. Tiles can be deselected for printing as well as reverse printed for accurate colour matching for adjacent tiles. Additionally users can specify the optional feature of borderless printing on devices that support this feature so that printed panels can be printed without requiring any additional trimmings. The tiling arrangement is clearly shown on the design window so that operators can quickly and accurately position the tiles.
12 Canvas Wrap
The most comprehensive and powerful canvas wrapping system on the market allows you to create canvas gallery wraps with a number of different wrap options including mirror, stretch, auto colour and others. Additionally a user defined blur filter can also be applied to the wrap to give a more pleasing finish. The user can interactively zoom & pan the image on the canvas area to get the best visual placement possible. For easy of application and finishing additional white space margins can be added to the canvas wrap that also saves ink usage. For visual checking and verification the canvas can be viewed in 3D view and customer proof can also be produced that places the canvas design in various room views.
