Emerald prevents printing mistakes!

By overriding graphics programs halftone settings Emerald ensures proper film printing every time while streamlining your daily workflow.

With the “Use Settings” toggle ON Emerald will properly apply Line Screen, Shape, and Angle to every halftone film printed. This feature does not effect solid area separations, only halftones when applicable.

From your graphics program, select the AccuRIP Emerald printer driver then each spot or process separation to be printed. No need to address line screen or angle settings, Emerald handles these for you.

Want to control line screens and angles directly from your graphics program? You can do that too.

Turn OFF the “Use Settings” Toggle, then click APPLY. Now Emerald honors the line screen and angle settings from your graphics program.

Emerald still controls the “ halftone shape”, while you control everything else.
