Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Xitron Navigator Elite Harlequin RIP Workflow

Navigator Elite Workflow is the premier offering in the Navigator product line including Harlequin RIP and the Navigator Workflow Server.

Designed for prepress departments in need of no-nonsense, productive, economical solutions, Navigator Elite combines operator convenience with all the tools necessary to efficiently drive your work to the pressroom. Easy-to-use, powerful, flexible, and compatible with more than 250 output devices, Navigator Elite also gives you the full backing and support of Xitron. Xitron builds solutions based on customers needs, creating a lasting partnership for years to come.

The Navigator Elite Harlequin RIP Workflow helps increase productivity, manage your work, and reduce costs. With an intuitive user interface, an operator is able to manage and control jobs from virtually any prepress workstation. Specific workflow sequences can be designated and stored, greatly reducing the opportunity for error.

Navigator Elite Harlequin RIP Workflow includes PDF Creation and Preflighting, plus a robust Ink Remapping tool, providing a quick and easy way to eliminate or consolidate plates within a job. Scriptable Hot Folders allow jobs to be sorted automatically by the workflow based on job size or other criteria.

Also included is Dynagram's powerful inp02 Basic imposition solution. inp02 Basic allows you to increase your productivity with a powerful and scalable PDF imposition software, built right into the familiar environment of Acrobat 8/9. inp02 Basic provides the functions and features for commercial printers with PDF workflows (requires Adobe Acrobat 8 or higher). The Navigator Workflow Server's Imposition integrator option provides greater control over imposed jobs within the workflow. Optional upgrades to professional and Complete are also available.

Remote Control From Your Desktop

Navigator Elite Workflow uses client server technology. With an easy-to-use graphical user interface the Navigator Elite Workflow enables operators to manage and control jobs from a Mac or PC workstation. Job tracking can be monitored on any workstation throughout the production process. Administrator and user permissions can be set up for each client providing various levels of access. The system includes two client licenses. Additional licenses can be purchased up to a maximum of ten.

Extensive Job Management

Job tracking and process control has never been easier. The workflow enables users to sort jobs by name, status, priority, workflow and job number. There are also additional headings that can be customized to fit your requirements. This enables operators to quickly navigate through a long list of jobs based on the selected criteria. The management system also keeps copies of the job at all stages of the workflow. This allows jobs to be easily resubmitted without having to go back to the original design application to be reprinted.

Controlling RIP Page Setups

Commonly used settings in Page Setups can be edited within the workflow. Rotation, trapping, imposition templates and separation styles can all be edited. This reduces the number of individual Page Setups required. Access to these Page Setups also allows the user to make last minute changes to the job on the fly. These changes do not affect the original Page Setups—only the setup for that particular job.

PDF Capabilities

Navigator Elite Workflow’s PDF capabilities provide greater control and management of incoming Postscript and PDF files. The PDF creator and Preflight modules are essential tools for creating and optimizing a Master PDF file. PDF creator automatically creates PDFs from incoming Postscript files, then preflights the PDFs using the integrated Preflight module that fixes many common job problems. Preflight reports can automatically be generated to alert the operator to problems such as low resolution images, 4-color black text, and RGB images. Adding Acrobat Professional and Enfocus PitStop provides PDF editing capabilities to your system. The ability to edit PDF files provides even more control and flexibility over incoming PDF files.

Navigator Northstar RIP

Navigator Northstar fixes the inconsistent color issues encountered by users of Astrojet M1 printers as well as those re-branded as the Colordyne 1600 (C & S), RTI-Digital Vortex 850S, Neopost Mach 5 and Mach X, and Formax Colormax 7, all of which use the Memjet Northstar inkjet head. Northstar delivers the ssame functionality to users of the OKI Data 931 and 941 toner-based printers.

By combining the power of the Navigator Harlequin RIP with Xitron's color transform technology, what you see is what you print, consistently. Whether your jobs are made up of CMYK, Pantone spot colors, or a combination of both, Northstar gives you the color control you want and the results your customers expect. Applications include envelopes, flyers, brochures, and desktop labels.

Whether you are an end user, dealer, or developer, if you're not happy with the results you're getting from your present RIP or printer driver, let us know. We can help you redefine your color!
