The upgrade from Windows 7 for RasterLink Pro 5 and RasterLink 6 programmes means users can RIP files quicker using the newest, higher-spec PCs.

Customers can download the latest version of the software free from the Mimaki website or use the application’s inbuilt ‘web update function’, according to Mimaki’s UK and Ireland exclusive supplier, Hybrid Services.

Technical support officer Steven Barrance said the upgrade could be installed across a range of printers, including the JV33 series, CJV series and the UJF-3042.

“This simple-to-use feature is available for customers running RasterLink Pro 5 and all customers who have full versions of RasterLink 6.

“It allows users to benefit from the latest Windows operating system, along with other performance and profile updates as they become available.”

Mimaki RasterLink Pro 5 and RasterLink 6 are PostScript Level 3 RIP packages, customised to Mimaki printers offering spot-colour support and versatile image editing functions.
