TeleGrafix Communications, Inc. was an American software company in Huntington Beach, California that developed the Remote Imaging Protocol, the RIPscrip scripting language, the RIPterm terminal emulator, and the RIPaint authoring tool. TeleGrafix published the Remote Imaging Protocol (RIP) specification in 1991.

Collectively, these technologies enabled bulletin board system (BBS) software to display interactive graphics without using character-based ANSI art or ASCII art, as in the past.

Although these technologies revolutionized BBS software, within three years they were eclipsed by World Wide Web technologies such as HTML and the Hypertext Transfer Protocol.
