it seems a few years ago, that i worked with a designer who worked with huge files, and they had a piece of hardware/software/something? that did something basically like this: took their huge job (from indesign or photoshop) from their computer, to a secondary location/hardware (rip? spooler?) which freed up their computer, then when it was ready, it printed to their laser printer…all the while freeing up the first computer.
anyone know what is that called and am i explaining it correctly? thanks!
