“With PDF Print Engine 3, Adobe continues to demonstrate our leadership in print – 30 years after launching PostScript and igniting the Desktop Publishing revolution. Faster processing and greater predictability translate directly into higher profits for our partners’ customers: the printers of the world,” says Naresh Gupta, senior vice president of Adobe’s Print and Publishing Business Unit.
Today’s announcement represents the continuing evolution of the Print Engine SDK, launched in 2006. Initially adopted by vendors in traditional offset printing, there are currently more than 90,000 units in live production around the globe. In the past three years, the technology has been embraced by market-leading vendors in Digital Production Printing (DPP) and Large Format Printing (LFP).
