Xitron (Ann Arbour, Michigan), developer of the Harlequin-based Navigator RIP and workflow products for offset, flexo, digital and high-speed inkjet printing, has re-launched its new and improved website at www.xitron.com. Focusing on product categories with the goal of comprehensive information retrieval, the new design “fosters intuitive navigation” through Xitron’s product mix. “As our products and markets have diversified over the last few years, it became clear that end users, dealers and OEMs needed an easier way of finding information,” said Karen Crews, President of Xitron. “The new website solves that issue through design and functionality improvements. We’re very excited about bringing this new website experience to our users, dealers and partners. Along with the improvements in navigation and content, the architecture lends itself to easy updating, which will help us provide visitors with the most up-to-date news and information about Xitron and our products,” she added.
Xitron creates pre-press RIP and workflow software based on core technology developed by its parent company Global Graphics Software. A Harlequin RIP OEM since 1992, Xitron’s Navigator RIP has over 35,000 installations worldwide, driving everything from legacy computer-to-plate systems, to the most sophisticated high-speed inkjet presses. “Almost every brand of CtP being used by printers today can be paired with Navigator RIP and workflow software,” the company added, Similarly, the latest inkjet press innovations from companies like Colordyne, AstroNova, W+D, SuperWeb Digital, and others feature Navigator Digital Front Ends (DFEs) capable of driving their presses at full rated speed (several hundred feet per minute in many cases), even with variable data present on every page.
