Montage – A Basic Entry-Level Program

The Montage program is ideal for the customer who wants the expanded capability of a Spectrum engraver, but does not want to invest in the Collage Layout Software.

The Montage Workflow

The Mac operator creates the fully stepped-and-repeated layout, complete with registration marks. The file is saved as a Tiff in a shared folder.

On the Spectrum engraver (or a remote computer), the operator selects the Tiff file, selects one color (separation), sets the screen, angle and other output parameters, and saves the file as a Cylinder Job. This process can be repeated for each color of the Tiff file.

The operator can then engrave each Cylinder Job.

Montage compared to Collage

Montage - manually create Cylinder job for each separation
Collage - automatically create all cylinders for one job

Montage - grayscale soft-proof of one separation at a time; on screen proofing only
Collage - soft-proof all colors together; hard-proof; PDF proof; Job Viewer proofing

Montage - runs on engraver embedded computer
Collage - runs on separate computer; can be in remote location
