new press - CIP3 files?

It looks like the company is finally going to replace our old (circa 2000) Heidy CD102 with either a new Heidelberg CD106 or a new ManRoland. During the press demos, our press supervisor said he could see an image of the fully imposed layout on the press monitor screen. I'm not sure what was sent to the press to allow it to make up that image. Would it be the information derived from a CIP3 file, or would it be something else? All we provided Heidy/MR for the demo were imposed pdfs, and they put them thru their own RIP for plating.

Yes they are CIP3 files which contains a usually very low res image of the plate files though if you have the storage space and network bandwidth you can make them high res. The ManRoland people that set ours up recommended 15 dpi.

Manroland Web or Sheet Fed? On our Manroland Web they had us set up High rez and they are a pain.

We also have a custom Press Config file.

Our MR sheetfed uses low res. Our MR web has two color interfaces. One by MR and another by a 3rd party so we have to release two sets of CIP3 files for it. The 3rd party people wanted low res. MR wanted high res but not that high res.

So that low-res image is contained in a normal CIP3 file generated from Nexus and passed to a normal Prinect server (if the press is a Heidy) at the press?
