The RIP can process the following file types directly or through a shared folder:
PDF/X-1a:2001 is designed to provide the most robust and, to some extent, least flexible delivery of PDF content data. It requires that the color of all objects be expressed in CMYK or spot colors, prepared for the intended printing conditions. Elements in RGB or Lab color spaces or tagged with ICC profiles are prohibited. It also requires that all fonts used in the job be embedded in the supplied PDF file.
PDF/X-3:2002 allows slightly more flexibility in that color managed workflows are also supported. Elements in Lab and with attached ICC source profiles may also be used.
PDF/X-4:2008 supports color-managed, CMYK, gray, RGB or spot color data as well as optional content and PDF transparency.
