Artwork Adds Versatec Support to GDSPLOT
Artwork Conversion has added Xerox Versatec electrostatic color plotting support to
our GDSPLOT and GBRPLOT plotting software. This optional driver supports all color and monochrome Versatec plotters
via the "Greensheet" raster format. Even plotters with no RPM controller are
supported. This completes support for the major inkjet and electrostatic formats:
HP, Calcomp, Raster Graphics and Versatec.
- Any width plotter from 11 inches to 44 inches
- Any length plot up to the plotter's maximum
- Supports Color and Monochrome plotters
- 200 or 400 dpi plots
- Keeps raster compressed until last minute to minimize disk requirements.
- extremely fast rasterization on Sun and HP workstations.
How it Works
GDSPLOT processes the data as usual - only the last module, the raster formatter
is new. Plots are separated into four color planes - Black, Yellow, Cyan and
Magenta. The bitmap for each plane is stored compressed - the output spooler
includes a filter that uncompresses the raster data on the fly.
Price and Configuration
The Versatec color format adds $3000 to the price of GDSPLOT bringing GDSPLOT/Versa
to $4995. You also get our GDSVU viewing program and the Versatec output enables
you to plot directly from GDSVU to the plotter.
