    Hello,

    I am looking for feed back from Caldera users.

    Just to give you a run down of my environment:
    Mutoh Valujet 1604
    Graphtec 7000 cutter
    and potentially a HP Scitex FB700

    Print and cut is a day to day operation...

    I would gladly appreciate any comments on the software:
    Colour managament
    Process Speed
    ICC profiles
    In house created profiling

    The essentials pretty much

    Thanks so much in advance

    Based on your equipment you will be happy with Caldera's perfomance. As you know it is a Linux/Mac only platform that allows multiple instances on a network with one license.

    My favorite features are in the color mgmt and profiling, contour cutting is also nice...not a big fan of the interface though.

    Scitex users have adopted it as the rip of choice.

    I download the demo and tried it out with my Mimaki JV3 and was pleasantly surprised with it. The folks from Caldera where great and quick to answer any questions and the software seemed pretty robust. If I was keeping this printer I would indeed switch over to this RIP.

    Thanks,
    Kurt

    We're considering it as well but as others have suggested, we don't wanna tie up a mac and not sure anyone in the shop is comfortable enough with linux so may end up going w/onyx.
