Upgrading to Screen Black Box

We have a screen 8600 CTP Driven by a Screen HQ Rip. Since the new PCs dont have the PCI card we are being recommended to buy a Screen Black Box to interface the the PC with the Screen CTP. My question is

1. Can someone confirm the minimum version of HQ Rip required that supports the black box to drive the screen Ctp.

Hi Ravi,

connect your Screen black box EP-B101 with your local network.

Use a tool like PortExpert (Freeware) to search your local network for the current IP-address of the black box.


If you got it, use an internet browser for connection to the black box.

Hopefully the Screen black box comes with a web interface for adjusting an IP-address. This is usually the case with these boxes (e.g. Ethersetter box)

Maybe you got the attached PDFs already, but for safety....

Best regards


Color Optimized?

Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
