Ten generations later – Agfa Apogee and Asanti

The Apogee RIP system was one of the first to embrace the Adobe PDF file format as the main source of artwork files. This was in 1997, and in 2016, Agfa released the Apogee Suite version 10.

This means that on average there has been a new generation, or major update, of Apogee every second year. This is quite typical for modern day software, and we even have gradual, but smaller, updates in between. Many of the enhancements and improvements to Apogee in the last few years have been centred on bringing about even further automation into the workflow. With version 10 users could also subscribe to a cloud solution. Apogee Cloud has the same functions and features as the server version, but is hosted by Agfa. This makes sense since quite a lot of printers don't want to invest too many resources into IT, so can instead buy this as a service.
