  • VisualCUT. For Graphtec, Summa, Mimaki, Mutoh and Roland roll cutters, VisualCUT will automatically set up cut marks for the specific device it is driving and guide the machine along the document’s embedded contours.



With CostView, any 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 your company network using a simple web browser.

Its newest and most important feature is the addition of a carbon footprint analysis tool. Users can now indicate the CO2 emitted by each of the elements of the job: ink, media, electricity, additional costs.


CostPROOF estimates your printing costs by calculating the ink and media consumption per PRINT job.


For large-format flatbed cutters without direct piloting, GrandCUT generates a machine-specific file for each individual job to ensure the most precise cut. Supporting Zünd Cut Center, Zünd Touch & Cut, Aristo, Multicam, Grafitroniks, OptiSCOUT and Duncan controllers.


Specifically developed for Fotoba cutting machines, NestOba is the evolution of Caldera’s powerful Nest-O-Matik™ tool, designed to save time and resources when cutting.


InkPerformer promises users the power to monitor and optimize their ink consumption, giving commercial printers a significant environmental and economical advantage over their competitors. Provides an average 20 percent and up to 35 percent reduction in ink consumption across all types of wide-format production.

Print Standard VERIFIER

Caldera’s Print Standard Verifier is a new tool to check the conformity of printing processes with industry standards. It provides a solution to the ever-increasing requests for standards compliance in the digital printing market (FOGRA, ISO & G7).




Requires Variable Display

The new PrintBoard plug-in for Caldera is the first display solution of its kind to interact directly with a RIP engine. The plug-in will allow users of Caldera’s RIP software to show an overview of their production activity on screen for all employees to see, with information including which files have recently been added to the spooler, and the number of square meters processed daily by the RIP.

PrintBoard displays information such as the daily square meter production rate, the rate per printing device, the percentage of production per printer and per type of printer and the number of errors per day, alongside the sequence of jobs lined up for each device. This allows for an at-a-glance overview of the workload, and makes it easy for production managers to order jobs for optimum efficiency and productivity.


Preflight verifies PDF files and compares them to standards according to precise formats (PDF/A, PDF/X, PDF/VT, etc.). This verification allows you to validate your file before the print depending on your specific needs.



Contour Nesting is a new option of Caldera’s Visual and Grand ranges. It is dedicated to cut and allows you to take into account the object’s real shape inside the image so the element can be optimally placed to save media.
