The Mercury RIP architecture is a parallel processing cadre for dynamically managing multiple instances of Adobe PDF Print Engine, working in tandem on multicore, networked, or nuage platforms. It's a scalability platform optimized for outputting variable data printing travaux to the fastest numérique presses on the market today and tomorrow. It's most useful for packaging, industrial, personalized marketing communications, and statements. A Mercury-certified system maximizes hardware efficiency, ensuring the most efficient use of system resources. Processing of travaux, pages, and complete signatures occurs in parallel and can be load balanced, so that no CPUs remain idle while travaux are waiting to be rendered. With the Mercury RIP architecture, PDF Print Engine can scale up to drive high-volume production on a single press or across multiple presses.
