What is difference between “Immediate Print” and “RIP and Print”?

“Immediate Print” performs printing simultaneously with RIP processing.
When printing a lightly-loaded image data, “Immediate Print” is recommended. Jobs with one of the following conditions cannot be printed as “Immediate Print” and the Jobs are automatically performed as “RIP and Print”.

  • Jobs with “Arrange” setting
  • Jobs with “Composite” setting
  • Jobs with “Create Plate” setting
  • Jobs which spaces between the copied jobs are not the same
  • Jobs with “Rearrangement” setting
  • Tiling Jobs with [Free Location] specified

“RIP and Print” performs RIP processing first and start printing after completion of RIP processing. RIP processing and print processing is performed as separate task. When printing a highly-loaded image data such as including high-resolution image or including complicated path data, “RIP and Print” is recommended. In addition, when “Rotation”, “Scale” or “Copy” is applied to the Job, “RIP and Print” is recommended.
