The remarkable and continuing success of the Xaar 1201 printhead in Asia was underlined at Shanghai Ad and Sign Show 2018 as six leading RIP suppliers received awards for developing software for the Xaar 1201. The RIP software from two Chinese companies, MainTop and Hosonsoft, as well Onyx, Sai, Aurelon, and Caldera is enabling printers using the Xaar 1201 to enhance their workflow and optimise print for a range of applications – from graphics to dye sublimation textiles. Through its collaboration with Guangzhou Hao Cheng, Xaar provides printer manufacturers with an extensive and stable supply chain and full integration support. As a result, the Xaar 1201 is undergoing rapid adoption by printer manufacturers across Asia.
