Compart - Document- and Output-Management



PostScript is a page description language developed by the software manufacturer Adobe Systems Inc., which has become a quasi-standard in the digital prepress stage. It describes documents largely independent of the device used so that the resolution of an image is not defined until it reaches the output device. The more recent PostScript 2 offers, among other things, improved colorimetric facilities, since the reference color space is integrated in accordance with the CIE (Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage) standard. The latest version, PostScript 3, also improves the way in which colors and three-dimensional objects are displayed and supports trapping of graphic objects.
