A next-gen RIP that reimagines
what every printer can do

Adobe Embedded Print Engine

What is Adobe Embedded Print Engine?

Adobe Embedded Print Engine is a next-generation print RIP that natively processes PostScript and PDF files. Equip printers with the ability to handle PDFs from a variety of desktop, mobile and cloud sources such as AirPrint, Mopria, Google Cloud Print and more. Take advantage of the latest Adobe rendering, font and graphic engine to ensure a higher tolerance for non-compliant PDFs, achieving an output consistent with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC – the gold standard of PDF. Ensure accurate colour reproduction with support for ICC profiles. Easily configure it for a wide range of devices, from resource constrained home printers to high-end enterprise multifunction printers. Significantly boost performance with an all-new architecture. Integrate it seamlessly with any platform of your choosing. Available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
  • Ensure native consumption of PostScript and PDF
  • Ensure native consumption of PostScript and PDF

    Adobe Embedded Print Engine consumes PostScript and PDF files natively, resulting in significantly faster printing. Ensure devices accurately represent colours on printed paper by taking advantage of ICC profiles. Achieve colour consistency across PostScript and PDF files with a common code for native rendering. Enable seamless switching between PostScript and PDF jobs with minimal overhead.

  • Get the best out of every device

    Get the best out of every device With just a one-time development effort, Adobe Embedded Print Engine can be tailored by OEMs for a range of target printers—from small office and home printers that have low memory and a single-core processor to enterprise multifunction printers (MFPs) with multi-core processors and several hundred megabytes (MBs) of RAM. 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.

  • Get the best out of every device
  • Experience the same behaviour as Acrobat Reader—The gold standard of PDF
  • Experience the same behaviour as Acrobat Reader—The gold standard of PDF

    Deliver a consistent experience across screen and paper by giving devices the ability to accurately print output that matches what customers see using Acrobat Reader on desktops and mobiles. Take advantage of the same core technology as Acrobat Reader and Acrobat DC to achieve results closest to the gold standard of PDF.

  • Be AirPrint ready

    Adobe has worked with Apple to get AirPrint certification for Adobe Embedded Print Engine. This means any printing device which embeds Adobe Embedded Print Engine need not worry about the quality and performance of printing PDFs, one of the aspects a device is tested for before receiving AirPrint certification.

  • Be AirPrint ready
  • Seamlessly integrate with any platform
