Mercury RIP Architecture

Mercury RIP Architecture

The Mercury RIP Architecture is a parallel processing framework for dynamically managing multiple instances of Adobe PDF Print Engine, working in tandem on multicore, networked or cloud platforms. It’s a scalability platform optimised for outputting variable data printing jobs to the fastest digital presses on the market today and tomorrow. It’s most useful for packaging, industrial, personalised marketing communications and statements. A Mercury-certified system maximises hardware efficiency, ensuring the most efficient use of system resources. Processing of jobs, pages and complete signatures occurs in parallel and can be load balanced, so that no CPUs remain inactive while jobs 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.

Tile Parallel Processing is a feature of the Mercury RIP Architecture. It accelerates system performance for large surfaces by subdividing them into smaller sections, each of which is assigned to a separate instance of PDF Print Engine, running on a separate CPU core. By processing multiple tiles in parallel and then seamlessly reassembling them, Tile Parallel Processing significantly reduces overall rendering time for posters, signage and architectural drawings.
