Adobe Systems Inc’s printer communication language, PostScript is still very much alive and developing and the latest release addresses the digital market. PostScript 3 is said to be faster and more reliable than ever before. Portable Document Format is integrated into the technology enabling digital documents to be created in any application and their original look maintained throughout the entire process. Version two was released some two- and-a-half years ago, before the Internet and the World Wide Web had the momentum it does today. Adobe says it has developed PostScript to take advantage of new technology, and its Enhanced Image technology is said to ensure high quality color reproductions. The company says the image quality that has been acceptable in the past is out of date, and it has incorporated many new features to help over come that. Smooth shading reduces print time and improves quality, masked images extend the graphics range and finer color controls deliver more consistent color printing across all applications. The PostScript 3 drivers work with Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows NT, and the Apple Macintosh. The company says PostScript operates on a 50/50 basis between Windows and the Mac. It said PostScript is designed to be used for anyone who requires good print quality, but primarily at the print market itself. The new technology has incorporated PlanetReady printing that enables users anywhere in the world to get access to PostScript printer capabilities via a Web browser. PostScript 3 is available now.
