Global Graphics and Delphax Technologies announce strategic relationship

Global Graphics, a developer of software platforms for digital printing, digital document and PDF applications, and Delphax Technologies, a global provider of high-speed digital printing equipment, today announced a strategic relationship under which Global Graphics’ Harlequin technology will power Delphax’s next generation of products, the first of which is the elan 500 cut-sheet inkjet press capable of printing at speeds of up to 500 A4/Letter images per minute.

Steve Hubbard, vice president sales and marketing at Delphax, commented, “Delphax has a long and successful history of integrating Global Graphics RIP technology into our products. It has been a key element of our industry leading Imaggia and CR systems, and we and extremely pleased to be able to continue this relationship in order to provide the quality and speed offered by the Harlequin RIP technology within our next generation of elan products. Our internally developed distributed PDF RIP farm solution, which is built around Harlequin, perfectly complements elan’s unparalleled productivity, print quality and flexible media options at a highly competitive cost point.”

Paul Hagen, Global Graphics Software’s vice president of sales said, “The Harlequin RIP is proven to be the fastest PDF RIP available and we are delighted that Delphax has chosen to continue its long relationship with us by using our technology to power its new product lines. We enjoy close collaboration and look forward to working together in the future.”

Harlequin is widely acknowledged to be the fastest RIP software available on the market delivering pages far in excess of the rated speed of the industry’s leading devices.  In addition to driving the elan digital print system from Delphax, it is also the technology to be found in an increasing number of digital press solutions including those developed by HP, Canon, TKS and OKI Data Americas.
