Adobe today announces Adobe® PDF Print Engine 3, the next-generation rendering platform, optimized for end-to-end print workflows based on Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). Adobe PDF Print Engine 3 combines performance enhancements with a new scalable architecture to power the industry’s fastest digital presses, large format printers, and platesetters. Print Service Providers (PSPs), print OEM solution providers, and designers will find that Adobe PDF Print Engine 3 is the most powerful rendering platform for reliable reproduction of complex, graphically-rich content.
Adobe PDF Print Engine 3 can be configured with the new Mercury RIP Architecture – a scalable, parallel-processing framework for extending RIP horsepower and dynamically balancing processing loads across available hardware. The Mercury RIP Architecture was designed to drive the high-speed digital presses of today . . . and tomorrow. In particular, it excels in Variable Data Printing (VDP). Recent testing at Adobe demonstrated that PDF Print Engine 3 with the Mercury RIP Architecture is the fastest rendering technology in the industry today.
