PostScript and PDF jobs
Command WorkStation uses the Adobe PostScript Engine (also known as Configurable PostScript Interpreter or CPSI) and the Adobe PDF Print Engine (also known as APPE) to process PostScript and PDF jobs.
CPSI does the following:
It processes PostScript level jobs and PDF jobs with up to 127 separations. During job processing, PDF jobs are converted to PostScript format.
It supports PDF jobs with cut contours.
It does not support native ICC profiles and ICC profile tagging in PDF objects.
APPE does the following:
Windows 64 bit computers: It processes PDF jobs with up to 127 separations.
It supports PDF jobs with cut contours. The Adobe PostScript 3 Engine is used to extract the cut contour(s), but the job itself is interpreted with the Adobe PDF Print Engine.
It supports native ICC profiles and ICC profile tagging in PDF objects.
It processes composite jobs quicker than CPSI.
You can speed up job processing by increasing the number of Adobe print engines that are used.
