Caldera will launch a carbon footprint calculator dedicated to the wide-format printing industry at EcoPrint in Berlin this September. CostView 3.0 is a redesigned and upgraded version of the company’s cost visualization software for wide-format printers. It has a new design and new features that include a module for carbon footprint monitoring.
Users can now indicate the CO2 rejected by each of the elements of the job: ink, media, electricity and additional costs. According to Joseph Mergui, Caldera CEO: “By introducing eco-responsible data into out Rip solutions, Caldera ambitions to keep its leadership in innovating the wide-format printing industry.”
CostView 3.0 is a fully integrated production management tool which extracts information about jobs directly from the Rip spooler, thus enabling a production manager to control, modify, study and export all costs pertaining to a job.
A production manager can view all jobs in the spooler, monitor ink and media costs add optional or automatic costs to each job and export the job listing with all relevant costs as a spreadsheet ready for further analysis. Its Web driven interface can be accessed by any user in the company network using a simple web browser.
