How It Works

With the release of the second generation of Adobe's PDFRender technology, average rendering times have decreased significantly. Coupled with Agfa's framework, internal testing shows and beta testers report an average decrease of 40% on 4 up or larger jobs.

Keep in mind that's an average, some of your work will achieve even better rendering times, some will see a marginal increase, but all jobs should render more quickly.

You don't have to do anything. it's built into the Prepress 6 release and your existing parameter sets will work just fine.

Why is this Important?
Easy. Shorter rendering times means your system is capable of processing additional work. In effect, you're expanding your system through a technology update!
