- Supports RGB, CMYK, 1 bpc, 2 bpc, 4bpc, 8 bpc and custom bpc, pixel interleaved or planar color components.
- Page size up to 16m pixels/lines (177m at 1200dpi/48dpmm).
- Very high resolution devices supported >4800dpi.
- Full page buffers or band buffers (display list) rendering supported.
- Display list can be in RAM or on a hard disk.
- Display list supports color/monochrome page detection, collated copies, flexible page print order (reverse, even/odd, selective ranges).
- Includes high performance LuraTech JBIG2 and JPEG 2000 (JPX) decode filters for PDF.
- Skew detection/correction libraries optimized to run in a few milliseconds with minimal loss of quality.
- Direct PDF print.
- Color management using ICC profiles (including PDF 1.4 Transparency blend colorspaces).
- Object type color and halftone for image, text, and graphics are supported.
- Support for third-party Color Management Systems and Font Scalers (e.g. UFST).
- Supports threshold array based halftoning, either ordered screen or Stochastic (Blue Noise Mask), or error diffusion dithering with support for minimum size (commonly needed for laser/LED engines).
- ASIC rendering hardware supported for images (blit or scaled), fills (paths, trapezoids, shaded trapezoids, shaded triangles, and rectangles), with or without alpha components.
- Multi-thread support for overlapped page parsing to display list and rendering from display list using multiple threads in parallel for CPU multi-core chips.
- Common high CPU demand functions can use CPU SIMD engines. Includes image scaling, halftoning, transparency, shading and color interpolation.
- Hard drive, if present, can be used for Font, ICC Profiles, ProcSets, and other resources as well as the display list.
- Disk support is a runtime option, allowing for easy product configuration or aftermarket upgrade option.
- Minimal OS functions needed, ports to everything from C-Exec, and proprietary Real-time Executives to embedded Linux to full Linux and Unix (e.g. AIX and HP-UX) and desktop OS (Windows and OS/x).
- Internal memory management designed to reduce impact on OS functions (malloc) and minimize fragmentation (critical for CPU chips without MMU hardware).
