Atlas and NexPress release PPML/VDX technology in PrintShop Mail

DECEMBER 6, 2002 — Following Atlas Software's commitment to support all major RIP technologies, the company recently established a partnership with NexPress Solutions LLC to develop support for PPML/VDX in PrintShop Mail.

PPML/VDX is a new variable-data-exchange standard, defined by the Committee for Graphic Arts Technologies Standards (CGATS). It is based on a subset of the PPML specification. PPML/VDX technology allows electronic-publishing software to use PDF files as containers for packaging the information needed to produce variable-data-printing jobs.

Support for PPML/VDX will be offered on the NexPress 2100 digital color production press from Heidelberg. The PPML/VDX enabled version of PrintShop Mail was demonstrated during Graph Expo in Chicago in October 2002 and was commercially released early in December, 2002.

About PrintShop Mail

PrintShop Mail is a variable-data-printing application that runs on a Macintosh computer or a Windows computer and is powerful yet extremely easy to use. It is also one of the least expensive variable-data-printing solutions available today (pricing starts at $1395.00 US).

PrintShop Mail is designed to use PDF files as boilerplate documents. Therefore, when you use PrintShop Mail to create variable-data documents, virtually any word-processing application or page-layout application can be utilized to create your boilerplate documents. This is a real time-saver if you receive boilerplate documents from sources outside your company ? for example, from customers ? because you don't have to re-create each boilerplate document in-house (just convert the boilerplate document from whatever format it's in to PDF format).

In addition to generating output in VPS format, PrintShop Mail can also generate output in the following formats:
