Callas Software today revealed callas pdfDPartner, an Adobe Acrobat plugin used to view DPart metadata in PDF documents. The viewer identifies all DPart information that relates to pages or page regions within a PDF, making it easier to set up automatic DPart-based processes. The plugin is available to download for free from callas software’s website.
ISO has published the first revision of PDF 2.0 (ISO 32000-2:2020). This is a so-called “dated revision” with quite a few clarifications but no new features compared to the original version (ISO 32000-2:2017). Further information is available from the PDF Association, which was instrumental in drafting this revision.
Just in time for the beginning of summer, Enfocus is releasing the Spring version of Enfocus Switch 2020 😉
In his first article Martin Bailey, CTO of Global Graphics, discussed the basics for calculating the required data rate of a RIP, the second article deals with the selection of the class of the Raster Image Processor (RIP):
- Up to 250 MB/s: a single RIP with multi-threading is sufficent.
- Up to 1 GB/s: multiple RIPs should be used on a single server.
- Above 1 GB/s: multiple RIPs distributed over multiple servers are required.
The articles are primarily aimed at manufacturers of output systems (digital printing, CTP). However, it is also interesting for users who wish to learn more about the architecture of RIPs.
