Raster Blaster Pro

Xitron pioneered the idea of Prepress Independence® with a TIFF Catcher called Raster Blaster in 1999. Designed to “catch” TIFF files from any RIP or workflow, Raster Blaster converts them into the raster formats used by computer-to-plate engines, direct imaging presses, and other output devices. Having an after-market option like Raster Blaster means users can choose RIP, workflow, and output vendors independently from each other, which can result in significant cost savings.


Raster Blaster Pro introduces next generation technology, providing intelligent, organized plate production for virtually any prepress workflow. From the intuitive browser-based GUI to the advanced imaging controls, Raster Blaster Pro truly is the first intelligent TIFF Catcher. Whether you are coupling an existing workflow with a new CTP engine or DI press, or replacing the workflow to interface with your existing CTP device, Raster Blaster Pro is the missing link. It comes pre-loaded on a fully configured B3, Xitron’s unique network interface.


Also available as an upgrade to existing Raster Blaster installations, Raster Blaster Pro is equally at home on your 64-bit PC and works with almost any Xitron USB interface.
