  • Roland VersaWorks

    VersaWorks RIP software has been developed exclusively for Roland inkjet printers and printer/cutters. This RIP ensures exceptional production output with unmatched ease of use.

    VersaWorks supports the Roland colour system which accurately reproduces spot colours from colour charts and swatch books including metallic colours. With VersaWorks, users can choose from print options including a high-speed mode for production banner printing, the MAX Impact preset for vivid outdoor graphics and Artistic mode for exceptional indoor graphics. In addition, VersaWorks features Variable Data Printing and supports up to four Roland devices simultaneously including printers, printer/cutters and cutters. It automatically estimates the ink usage and print time for each graphic so you can accurately monitor time and costs.

    VersaWorks features include embedded ICC profile support, ink level adjustment tools, software proofing capabilities, error diffusion for outstanding print quality and advanced cropping, tiling and nesting options. Support for Roland cutters allows you to pair a Roland cutter with any wide-format or desktop printer for print/cut applications. The PerfCut function produces precision perforated cut lines. VersaWorks 4.0 is fully compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000.

    • Roland Color System

      RolandColorRoland Color is a revolutionary spot colour fidelity system built on the Roland digital colour solution. This powerful spot colour matching system offers comprehensive colour libraries and other features that allow professionals to quickly and easily match logos and other corporate identity elements.

      With Roland Color, you can produce highly customised spot colour swatch books, swatch charts and peel-and-stick swatch sheets – right on your own media. These reference tools can be reviewed with customers to select the right colour to match an established corporate or team colour, or other vector graphic. Using all Roland equipment and supplies, you can print that colour with 100 percent accuracy every time.

      Color LibraryThere are three libraries within the Roland colour System. The Roland Color Library includes more than 1,000 spot colours for printing on any Roland inkjet. The Roland Metallic Color Library features 512 metallic spot colours that can be printed on the VersaCAMM VS-640 or SOLJET PRO III XC-540MT. A third library supports specialized printing options for Roland’s white, clear and metallic silver inks and also manages contour cutting functions for Roland cutters and printer/cutters.

    • Variable Data Printing

      Variable DataVersaWorks offers Variable Data Printing, a powerful feature that allows users to merge txt or csv data fields with a pre-defined design template to output variable text and graphic elements. Ideal for point-of-purchase displays, labels, name badges, plaques, menus and other custom graphics, VersaWorks Variable Data Printing allows users to quickly and easily produce a series of digital prints in which text and/or graphics change from one print to the next. VersaWorks Variable Data Printing supports popular design applications including CorelDRAW and Adobe Illustrator.

    • Advanced Color Management

      Colour ManagementVersaWorks includes five preset color matching settings such as US Prepress, Euro Prepress, Sign & Display, etc., allowing quick selection of the settings that best suit your application. Other advanced features make VersaWorks one of the most convenient and comprehensive RIPs available. These include the ability to preserve the purity of primary colors, to adjust calibration curves, to independently render intents for raster and vector objects, and to simulate output color on screen before printing.

    • Advanced Job Log Feature

      VersaWorks keeps a comprehensive log of all jobs that are processed through its queues by tracking the job size, ink usage, printing time, media information and more. The log information can be exported into Microsoft Excel supported formats (csv or xml) for record keeping purposes or for further analysis such as monitoring the ink and media usage.

    • Full Network Support

      VersaWorks allows you to connect an unlimited number of clients for unattended printing throughout the network. Client computers can send jobs to the Server (computer with VersaWorks installed) through a shared-network printer driver. VersaWorks also supports full bi-directional communication with the printer, enabling users to poll the width of the media currently loaded on the printer, the remaining ink, and the current status of the printer. VersaWorks also supports printing from Macintosh clients, provided that the Server OS supports AppleTalk.

    • Auto Update - Roland@NET

      VersaWorks keeps you always up-to-date with Roland@NET. You can choose to have VersaWorks check periodically for software updates or printing profiles and automatically download and install the updates through an Internet connection. You can also have Roland@NET download only the profiles you need. With Roland@NET, you always have the right profiles and the most up-to-date software iteration available.

    • Media Explorer

    • Advanced Layout Tools

      LayoutAdvanced layout features streamline the printing process, allowing you to save both production time and media. Using VersaWorks, you can manually or automatically tile jobs that exceed the media width or that need to be cut into smaller sizes. Modify tile sizes easily by typing in precise parameters or by dragging the tile border with the mouse. Minimize your media usage with the nesting feature that allows you to print multiple jobs together. After nesting, you can manually mirror, rotate, resize or change the position of each job. You can also select the Reorder function, which automatically rearranges the jobs into the most media-efficient layout option.
