Caldera RIP Gains Adobe PDF

Adobe PDF enables a single workflow system for all job types,



Caldera Graphics (Strasbourg, France) has extended its partnership with Adobe and announced the integration of the Adobe® PDF Print Engine (APPE) into its RIP solutions, to help guarantee fast production printing and reliable reproduction of Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files, including those with complex images and transparencies.
Caldera has integrated the APPE technology into its new Caldera’s V8 software RIP, to be released in December.
APPE enables integrated, end-to-end, PDF workflows for graphic-content printing, including variable data projects (using the PDF/VT format for variable data). It also allows native rendering, sans PostScript conversion, to ensure that designs and effects reproduce reliably. It simplifies upstream PDF workflows and unifies prepress production, Caldera says.
The company says the APPE enables a single workflow system for all job types, which maximizes reliability while adding flexibility. It maintains a software-based, device-independent status until final rendering, increases RIP speed and works consistently with Adobe Creative Suite.
A beta version will be presented at SGIA /New Orleans in October.
