HQ-510 RIP Ver. 10.0 is compatible with Windows 2012 Server 64-bit, Windows 2008 Server R2 64-bit, Windows 8 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit.
File formats include PostScript, EPS, HD Photo, XPS 1.0, TIFF 6.0, TIFF/IT-P1, JFIF, GIF and JPEG. The HQ-510 RIP also supports PDF 1.7 or earlier files, without first converting them to PostScript. It supports PDF 1.7 features, such as transparency, JBIG2, 128-bit encryption and referenced PDF. It supports PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3, PDF/X-4, PDF/X-4p, PDF/X-5g, PDF/X-5pg and PDF/VT.
Multiple threading using a layered set of passwords allows the RIP to take advantage of hyper threading and multi-core CPU architectures, as well as multiple processors.
The HQ-510 RIP supports the interpretation of one page of a job while the previous page of the same job is being composited and/or rendered in one or more separate threads.
Using a 64-bit RIP build aids performance in two ways: The compiled code can perform some steps in fewer cycles because of larger word sizes, thereby increasing the RIP speed by around 10 percent; a 64-bit build can access all RAM installed in your computer.
