M&R’s i-Screen CTS Computer-to-Screen (CTS) Imaging System uses specially-formulated i-Pak water-based UV-blocking ink and advanced high-resolution inkjet technology to generate opaque images on emulsion-coated screens. CTS images are superior to traditional film positives, delivering greater detail and smoother halftone transitions. And since i-Screen CTS generates the image directly to the screen, there’s no need for vacuum hold-down during the exposure process. This, coupled with the fact that light doesn’t have to penetrate layers of film and glass, can reduce exposure time up to two-thirds. i-Screen CTS also eliminates the need for costly film positives, as well as the space and labor required to store and retrieve them. Because the image information is digital, it’s easy to store and quick to retrieve.
The system includes computer, monitor, and M&R’s i-Block RIP software. By providing complete control of print parameters, including the ability to print individual channels (1-8) or full composites, i-Block RIP ensures high-quality images at production-level speed. i-Block provides full image scaling and positioning, has presets for common applications, and can be user-customized for specific art types and various mesh counts. i-Screen CTS accepts most static and retensionable screen frames in sizes up to 79 x 109 cm (31” x 43”) and is capable of producing image areas up to 64 x 93 cm (25” x 36.5”). i-Screen CTS’s compact design enables it to fit into most screen rooms.
