For printers to tap into their true potential

Adobe Embedded Print Engine is a next-generation RIP that natively processes PDF (and PostScript) files. An increasing number of PDFs are being printed daily, with the format becoming the PDL of choice for printing from mobile devices, cloud print services and other common office printing workflows. Achieve peak performance with powerful capabilities like parallel rendering of print jobs, enhanced memory management, and 64-bit support. Reliably reproduce in-print what you see on-screen in Adobe Acrobat. Take print quality to a whole new level by leveraging the latest core technologies, advanced font management, enhanced graphic handling, accurate color reproduction, and powerful transparency controls. Maximize the potential of every print device by undertaking a one-time development effort to build a single OEM product on a platform using Adobe Embedded Print Engine, and then configure it to run seamlessly on a range of devices – from resource constrained small office/home office (SOHO) printers to enterprise multifunction printers (MFPs).
The focus on PDF printing

 

Over 250 billion PDFs were opened by Adobe products in the last year.
PDFs are now the format of choice for organizations and individuals to share and print documents across devices and platforms. It is popularly used by smartphones and tablets for storing and printing documents, the usage of which has grown significantly in the last few years. More and more PDFs are being sent to printers from mobile devices, especially with the rise of services like AirPrint on iOS, Mopria on Android, various cloud print platforms, and many of the OEM-specific Android print services.
Print and Adobe

 

Revolutionizing printing with innovative technologies, since 1984.
Adobe revolutionized the world of print with the creation of PostScript in 1984, and then the Portable Document Format (PDF) 10 years later. From Adobe Creative Cloud (to create content) to Adobe Acrobat (to manage content) to Adobe Embedded Print Engine (to print content)—Adobe’s product portfolio serves the entire content workflow. Adobe Embedded Print Engine’s foundational technologies, including Adobe PostScript, Adobe PDF Library, and Adobe Color Engine are employed not only by Adobe Creative Cloud applications such as InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop but also by Adobe Acrobat.
