media to be used with each printer and RIP when performing RIP printing. When quickly printing, it is possible to register basic media information by selecting the media type which corresponds to your media with "Easy Media Settings" from the printer's configuration menu. It is then possible to print by setting the media type and print mode in the RIP. At that time, advanced settings for optimal printing with commercial media can be easily configured using the print configuration file (hereafter "EMX file") provided by Epson. This document explains the RIP printing method using an EMX file. What to Prepare Software RIP (hereafter "RIP") As of January 2016, RIP availability for SC-S80600 Series /SC-S60600 Series /SC-S40600 Series printers are as follows. Information on the latest supported RIP can be viewed at [Information] on the Epson Control Dashboard (hereafter "Dashboard"). For detailed information on each RIP, see the RIP manufacturer's Website. ・ONYX rip (V11.1.2 or later) ・Caldera RIP* (Ver10.2 or later) ・DINAX Mirage (V3.50 or later) * Mac OS X version only supported. The Linux version cannot be used because Dashboard does not support it. Epson Control Dashboard (Dashboard) Using Dashboard, you can download the EMX file and import configuration information to a printer or RIP. For features and usage instructions, see the Dashboard Help. The EMX file is a media-specific print configuration file containing the following information needed to properly print on commercial media. ・Media settings: Media settings to be registered to the printer (heater temperature, platen gap, etc.) ・Print information: Settings information such as the ICC profile, resolution, and number of passes imported to RIP. Important : ・Make sure if the following conditions have been met for the computer in which Dashboard has been installed. ・An Internet connection must be established , otherwise EMX files cannot be downloaded. ・RIP and Dashboard are installed on the same computer. If they are installed on separate computers, they may not work together correctly. ・Make sure to use the latest version of Dashboard at all times. When you receive an update notification, update immediately. Print Data The supported file formats and versions vary depending on the RIP used, however PDF formats (conforming to the PDF/X-1a or PDF/X-4 standard) are recommended as they can be used with almost all RIPs. With PDF files, you will not have broken links or collapsed layouts, and you don't need to outline characters. In addition, even if the image processing software version is different, there is no difference in the display. For information on how to convert printouts to PDF format, see the manual for your image processing software (such as Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator).

In Dashboard, you can only import print information of media types for media settings that were registered to the printer. Simply downloading an EMX file does not import it to a RIP. "Registering Media Settings (EMX File)" ・Did you register an EMX file to a printer or RIP while the RIP was running? If you register an EMX file in Dashboard while the RIP is running, the information may not reflect properly. When downloading or registering an EMX file, close the RIP and restart it after completing the registration. ・Are you accessing a single printer from multiple computers that have installed Dashboard? If you install Dashboard separately in multiple computers and register the same printer, operations may not work properly. If a printer is shared for multiple computers, it is recommended to install Dashboard only on a single computer. To register media or check the status from other computers, please use Dashboard through remote access. Remote access is possible with the following steps. Start your browser on the computer in which you want to access Dashboard remotely. Enter the following in the address bar. http://(Computer name or IP address of the computer in which Dashboard is installed):30561 The scheduled print end time does not match (Windows) If the scheduled print end time does not match, configure the settings below for the communication driver Open the Start menu, go to [Devices and Printers], right-click the corresponding printer and select [Printer properties]. In the [Advanced] tab, select [Print directly to the printer] as the spool method. 35 The seams between the pages are prominent (Tiled printing) Splitting up an image data across multiple pages/printouts (tiles) is called "tiled printing". During tiled printing, if pages are vertically flipped when printed out as shown in the figure below, the difference in colors for the seams between the pages will be less noticeable. ONYX rip and Caldera RIP support vertically flipped printing that alternates by page. For setting instructions, see below. ONYX rip "ONYX rip Settings" Caldera RIP "Caldera RIP Settings" DINAX Mirage does not support vertically flipped printing that alternates by page. Split up the image data into multiple pages, create data that is vertically flipped (alternates by page), and print. 36 ONYX rip Settings Open the image file with RIP Queue, right-click the image to be used for tiled printing in [Preview] on the left of the screen, and select [Job in Job Editor]. Configure tiled printing settings in the [Tile Setup] tab. For setting details, see the RIP manual. After configuring the settings for tiled printing, select [Copy] in the [Printer and Media] tab. You will return to the RIP Queue screen. 37 Click [Placement] on the right of the screen. Select the [Flip every other tile] checkbox, and click [OK]. Specify the quick set to use, and then start printing. 38 Caldera RIP Settings Click [Tiling+] from the [Main] tab of Caldera RIP. Click in [Misc]. For setting details of tiled printing, see the RIP manual. After configuring the settings, select the print settings and start printing. 39 The print color does not match the image data confirmed on the screen In order to print the print data in the desired color, the input color settings of the image processing software (Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, etc.) and the RIP must match. In order to match the print data displayed on the computer screen with the print color, configure display settings for the image processing software by following the steps below. Note : We recommend to perform monitor matching (screen color management) in order to bring the color of the computer monitor display and the print color closer together. For details, refer to the manuals of your computer and monitor. The following example uses Adobe Illustrator CC (2015) on Windows 7. Start Adobe Illustrator and select [Edit] - [Color Settings]. 40 Refer to the following table, specify a profile in [Working Spaces] and press [OK]. For wide gamut printing For general printing (1) AdobeRGB1998.icc sRGB.icc, etc. (2) EpsonWideCMYK Ver2.icc General printing profile, etc. (3) Keep embedded profile Convert to working space For wide gamut printing: Regardless of whether or not a profile is embedded in the print data, printing is performed with a wider gamut compared to general printing colors. Use this setting when more vivid printing is needed, such as the printouts for colorful signs/displays. For general printing: Use this setting when you want to make printing with an embedded profile. When no profile is embedded in the print data, general print colors such as offset printing is used accordingly. After applying the settings, restart Illustrator. (3) (1) (2) 41
