Rendering Platform for the Adobe PDF Print Experience

ColdFusion Standard

What’s new in PDF Print Engine 5

Version 5 of PDF Print Engine includes new colour capabilities to harness the full potential of the latest digital presses. These include enhancements which will increase brand impact when printing spot colours, graphics and images on presses which support Extended Colour Gamut (ECG). 
Version 5 provides full support for the print-related features of the PDF 2.0 specification, published in 2017 by the ISO. 
As designers continue to push creative boundaries with the new features in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, the PDF Print Engine 5 will render them for reliable reproduction on any surface and in any manufacturing process.



Tile Parallel Processing
High Impact Colour Rendering
New capabilities to harness the full potential of today’s digital and conventional presses, including support for PDF 2.0 colour features such as Black Point Compensation (BPC), Half-tone Origin (HTO), Spectral data for spot colours (CxF) and Page-Level Output Intent.
Expanded spot colour handling
Smooth edges for graphics
Anti-aliasing for visually smoother edges on graphic objects, especially useful for lower resolutions. Processing times are reduced to a fraction of the time compared to alternative and post-rendering methods. 
Accelerated processing for patterns & soft masks
Enhanced Unicode Support
Control parameters, file paths and passwords can include multi-byte characters.
Mercury RIP Architecture
Framework for maximising resource utilisation, via parallel processing and load balancing.
