Print Time includes material advance and look-up table download. Actual print time depends on computer configuration, file complexity and speed of data storage device.
Continuous-tone: 200, 305, 406 dpi / Res 7.9, 12 and 16. Apparent half-tone resolution is 4,000 dpi.
The 200 dpi Option is available on each LightJet model. The maximum print size at 200 dpi is 50x50" / 127x127cm.
36 bits; each 8-bit input channel is interpolated to 12 bits to produce a 36-bit outdoor color space, resulting in smoother gradients, and increased highlight and shadow detail.
Maximum Image Sizes
LightJet 5300 32x50" / 81x127cm
LightJet 5500 50x50" / 127x127cm
LightJet 5900 50x50 / 127 x 127cm
or 49x97" / 124x246cm
Image sizes apply for paper and trans materials.
For clear-base films the maximum print size is 49x50" / 124 x 127cm. Images longer than 50" / 127 cm are printed at 305 dpi. Prints longer than 50" require the use of 50" wide materials.
Roll Media Capacity
Length: Up to 164 feet (50 meters)
Width: 30", 40" and 50" / 76cm, 102cm and 127cm
Popular reflective and backlit display materials are qualified.
Laser Light Source
Red: Helium-neon - 633 nm
Green: Helium-neon - 543 nm
Blue: Argon-ion - 458 nm
Remote Sensing Option
The Remote Sensing Option can be specified for each LightJet model. This option is ideal for applications requiring very high geometric accuracy, such as remote sensing, aerial photography and lenticular imaging. Its overall geometric accuracy is +/- 1 mm over the entire 50x50"/ 127x127cm image area. When ordered with System Manager software, two additional data formats are supported: pixel interleaved (BIP) and line interleaved (BIL).
Image Interpolation and Sharpness Control
Adaptive 16-point bi-cubic spline applied on a per frame basis. Does not increase the size of files being transferred or reduce productivity.
System Manager Software Interpolation
Automatic bi-cubic interpolation applied on a per image basis (multiple images within a frame can be scaled independently). Exact sizing feature provides for automatic scaling and interpolation to specific dimensions.
Interpolation Scaling Range
Hardware: 100% to 1,000%
Software: 25% to 400%
User selectable with defaults that allow different portions of an image to be sharpened or smoothed adaptively on a per frame basis.
Supported Workstations Pentium II or Digital Equipment Alpha (Pentium II recommended for highest
productivity). Supported Operating System Windows NT 4.0 Workstation; Pentium II LightJet FE Open

LightJet FE Open Interface
LightJet FE Open Interface software accepts digital files from networks and third-party RIPs using a hot folder. It opens the LightJet to all programs that produce RGB-TIFF files.
System Manager LT and XL
LT and XL Features
-TIFF (RGB & CMYK), Scitex CT; PostScript Level 2 RIP (for XL version).
-On screen color correction with user interface control over highlight, ¼ tone, id-tone, ¾ tone and shadow.
-Fast image preview prior to printing.
-Image cropping for printing elected areas only.
-Independent scaling of each image in a multi-image print.
-PostScript Level 2 RIP.
-90, 180 and 270 degree rotation.
-Automatic CMYK to RGB conversion while printing.
-Simultaneous RIP and print on-the-fly. Actual RIP and print times depend on the computer configuration, image size and PostScript file complexity.
-Seamless RIP to file and then print capability.
