Improved Output & Processing Speeds
The high performance that Lightning TIFF plugin achieves is obtained through its unique method of implementing CCITT compression along with a significant number of code optimization techniques that have been applied to all compression modes.
The results of these optimization techniques are the creation of TIFF files at previously unheard of speeds, allowing for both greatly increased throughput and faster last minute production of time critical plates.
Conventional & Extended Template Based Naming
In addition to the options provided by the standard Harlequin TIFF plugin, Lightning TIFF provides additional options for conventional based naming (the ability to place all output from a given job into its own folder and the ability to use the file name instead of the job name) and an extended set of template variables for template based naming.
Taking advantage of the latest multi-core CPUs, Lightning TIFF is multi-threaded so as to provide maximum performance on today’s hardware. This offers the highest performance possible for last minute production of time critical jobs.
Additional Data Formats
As well as the formats supported by the standard Harlequin TIFF plugin, Lightning TIFF also supports tiled, single-file CMYK + Spot color and single-file frameinterleaved TIFF.
