Introduction

neoStampa is an image processor program for large format color printing (RIP) for continuous Rapport,  multiple images printing and/or for the creation of separations in film printing. It can be obtained with all three units or separately:

 RIP & FILM EDITION:  For color and film printing.

 RAPPORT: For continuous printing.

 SEPARATION PRINTING: For film printing exclusively.


With the program we can import any design in PostScript format or any other image taken from your scanner or other programs, and scale these designs to the chosen or necessary measurements.

The program achieves the enlargement of images with maximum quality and, owing to its color correction algorithms and the different shades available, it will present perfect results, ready to send to printers and/or cutting machines in large format. It also allows the possibility of using ICC printer characterization profiles.

This manual covers the three modes of neoStampa program: RIP, RAPPORT and FILM, as there are features common to all three. Still, there are well differentiated sections corresponding to each printing mode.
