QUESTION: What is AHT Vite?

ANSWER: Vite stands for "Variable Image and Text Editor." It is a variable-data-printing technology and print-optimization technology that is based on Atlas Software's PrintShop Mail application. The Vite technology was developed jointly by AHT (Advanced High-tech Corporation) and Atlas Software.

Vite uses a PDF file or EPS file as the static portion of a variable-data-printing job. The PDF code or EPS code is brought into Vite, and the data in a database is then linked to it. This database can be in various formats (text, dbf, etc.).

Once the variables in the document are linked to the various database fields, the document is ready for printing to an AHT server. The printing process is designed so that the static file is sent only once to the RIP, and the variable data is merged into the document afterwards. This allows the printer to run at or near rated speed.
