ONYX Graphics, Inc. today announced that the latest versions of its print
workflow and RIP software packages now include support for the Windows^® 8
operating system, providing a seamless transition for print service providers
upgrading to this OS or purchasing new hardware with Windows 8 already
installed. This support is available in version 1.2.5 of ONYX Thrive^TM print
workflow software and version X10.2.5 of ONYX ProductionHouse^TM, ONYX
PosterShop^® and ONYX RIPCenter^TM RIP software packages.

These new versions also add functionality for white and specialty ink

  *Color Management Engine updates for brighter, more vibrant images when
    printing with expanded ink gamuts for better output quality and ink
  *New support for native CMYKO and CMYKO+SS ink configurations found in the
    recently introduced Epson^® SureColor^® SC70600 and SC50600 series
  *Improvements were made to Spot Channel Preview in the Layout Tool.
  *Improved various user-interface elements for spot channels and expanded
    gamut ink usage such as an improved display for ink volume, which helps
    catch errors before printing and reduces the need for reprints. Additional
    improvements to the Media Manager user interface include an easier way to
    create new print modes to support printer modes that use white and
    specialty inks.
  *New ONYX HIVE™ Image (Hexagonal Ink Verification and Evaluation Swatch)
