Definitions for "ATM"
(Short for Asynchronous Transfer Mode) - A network technology based on transferring data in cells or packets of a fixed size. The cell used with ATM is relatively small compared to units used with other technologies like Frame-Relay or Ethernet.

Adobe Type Manager, the Adobe *rasterizer for displaying Type 1 fonts on screen (rather than on the printer, where Type 1 rasterizing is part of PostScript). ATM is included with any font from Adobe and the free Acrobat reader. ATM has been released for many computer platforms, including Mac and Windows. It will soon not be necessary to install ATM at all: a Type 1 rasterizer is to be part of Mac OS 8.6, and Windows 2000 will also rasterize Type 1 fonts natively. ATM Deluxe is a rather good utility for managing Type 1 and TrueType fonts, but you have to pay for it.
