dobe PostScript® was at the forefront of the Desktop Publishing Revolution. It was released in 1984 and was not only the first device-independent Page Description Language (PDL) but also a programming language. It was originally designed to print documents on laser printers but was soon adapted to produce high-resolution files for imagesetters used by commercial printers. Adobe PostScript® translates ideas into print — exactly as intended. It quickly became the technology of choice for high-quality output. PostScript brought assurance that the most complex documents would print accurately. It delivered superior workflow efficiency and reliability. Enterprises around the world were quick to adopt the technology. Today the Adobe PostScript SDK (Software Development Kit) continues to run on a wide range of operating systems and real-time platforms. It is licensed by leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and has been at the core of more than 20 million devices since its launch. Office Printing The PostScript RIP was a common component for laser printers until the 1990s. Today, Adobe PDF has replaced PostScript as the preferred print file format and is also the dominant format for document sharing and collaboration across devices and platforms. Adobe Embedded Print Engine is the next-generation RIP for driving desktop and multi-functional printers (MFPs). It can natively process PDF files for fast reliable printing in the office and home environments. It is optimized for printing via mobile and cloud and accurate output to low print-speed, low-resource devices without compromising performance and print quality.
