Simple Tiff Catcher/Shooter


Does anybody know of a simple tiff catcher/shooter the can send tiffs to a dart Luxel T6000 (screen 4300). We have Esko Imaging Engine that creates the 1 Bit tiff, I just need to send the tiffs to the platesetter.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Raster Blaster, any second hand Harlequin rip, even v6 can do the trick.

Hi Bob,

knowing that Raster Blaster is not that cheap, but it is the most reliable solution. You will need a blue box too, if you want to run it with a current 64bit Windows.

So Xitron offers recently a complete TIFF catcher kit (PC hardware + integrated bluebox and Rasterblaster software)

Ask your local Xitron dealer for the exact pricing.

I may have a used good one.... What are you currently using now... It uses a PIF card not scisi... depending on the tiff shooter tells you what kind of Pif card and cable you need.

They were right then and continue to be right today. Because toner and inkjet can be better together. Read the Post
