di-plot, Digital Information

JDF Technology for Ink Key Preset DI-Plot creates synergy. The software delivers the appropriate data for presetting ink keys and duct rollers on all units of your sheetfed or web presses. DI-Plot calculates ink coverage data from bitmap files generated by any RIP, writes an industry-standard JDF file and transfers the data via Ethernet to your pressroom. As a universal link between workflow, proofer and press console, DI-Plot works equally well in older and more recent technology environments. DI-Plot generates JDF files of the highest quality, resulting in accurate initial color settings for all printing units. Hundreds of press operators rely on data from DI-Plot and the companion press console interface InkZone Perfect to operate their presses with efficiency and confidence. That’s because the DI-Plot and InkZone Perfect solution minimizes duct roller feed, allowing exploitation of the full range of each ink key in addition to greater sensitivity to individual ink key adjustments. Thanks to the CIP4/JDF functionality of DI-Plot and InkZone Perfect, most any prepress workflow can now be extended directly to the pressroom via straightforward XML, even to presses of different age or origin. No need to invest in expensive, proprietary work flow plug-ins for outputting obsolete CIP3 files. DI-Plot takes you directly there.
