Software package for conversion and printout of bitmap files. Automatic reading and writing of CIP3 and InkZone files for presetting offset printing machines.
DI-Plot can read CIP3/4 files or proprietary bitmap files from which it calculates the percent dot area according to the printing machine used. In many cases, the reading of bitmap files (1 Bit Tiff, Delta lists, page buffer, etc.) can save the investment in expensive CIP3 extensions for the respective Rip/Workflow.

PC Hardware and Operating System
We recommend installing the DI-Plot software on a dedicated PC running Microsoft Windows XP Professional or Windows 7 Professional. The perfect hardware is an CPU Intel Core 2 Duo, 3.x GHz, 2 GB RAM, 80 GB hard disk, 10,000 RPM, 19-inch TFT monitor (touch screen recommended), USB. There are two important special hardware requirements: the PC should contain two Ethernet boards. One Ethernet line is connected to the customer's network (hub or switch), the other one is using a crossover cable and drives the InkZone Box/Card. This kind of installation ensures a clear separation between the box and the customer's network. And the PC should contain a free serial connetion (RS232) to drive the InkZone Tape and Strip solution.
