New features

Smart Hotfolders

Discover the new algorithm to parallelize jobs processing submitted to CalderaRIP via hotfolders, benefit from up to 35% faster RIPing time on PDF workflows and save 60% time on TIFF workflows.

Smart Hotfolders also adds genuine capabilities to streamline your production:

  • Input Job order is preserved in output
  • Jobs submitted manually always have the priority
  • Workflows and QuickPrints also benefit from the new algorithm
  • Decide to “Delete files after processing” or use the “Legacy” settings to preserve them

For CalderaCare users, Smart Import can automatically extract meta-data from the filename, such as the number of copies, targeted printer or presets in order to speed up job submission of traditional file-based workflows.


Developed to enhance CalderaRIP’s user experience, the QuickConfig feature increases job submission speed and flexibility by allowing you to freeze your current Print module configuration in one click.

Adobe PDF Print Engine 5.5 and FineLine

Adobe PDF Print Engine is the engine for reliable and scalable PDF printing. Since the 5.5 version, the FineLine feature makes the rendering of thin lines sharper and small texts more legible.

Double-Sided Printing

This function allows you to rotate, mirror and/or align the images independently to create the missing side. Users can generate side B from the original side A to save time.

Nesting Content View

Nesting Content View feature allows you to filter and check jobs inside your production with search, archive and delete functions, giving you the power to closely manage all your jobs.
