Abstract

This study was designed to determine the degree of impact of the RISC-based Macintosh PowerPC on the prepress industry in the southeastern United States. Through preliminary research, it has become apparent to the author that microprocessors based upon the Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) architecture have become the more efficient (i.e. faster) than computers which operate using the Complex Instruction Set Computing (CISC) microprocessor. In effect, this technology represents an unprecedented technological advance in efficiency combined with affordability in digital prepress desktop workstations. Therefore, proper implementation of the Macintosh PowerPC into prepress production systems would lead to increased efficiency and speed of the overall prepress production.
