QUESTION: What is AHT Vite?
ANSWER: Vite stands for
"Variable Image and Text Editor."
It is a
variable-data-printing technology and
that is based on Atlas Software's
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.
