ColorBurst Overdrive v2

Simple and Comprehensive RIP software

RIP software is often thought of as a tool strictly for experts in color management. ColorBurst aimed to eliminate this myth with the Overdrive. It seamlessly works between your printer's driver and RGB paper to produce more accurate colors while not only making the process effortless, but automated as well. Overdrive has been recognized among its peers for the finest image fidelity, garnering industry acclaim for color accuracy and image fidelity with six DIMA Shootout awards won at PMA 2010
