Global Graphics Provide Enhanced Features For Pre-Press Users With New Version Of Jaws Pdf Creator For Macintosh

Thursday, January 12, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Centreville, VA and Cambridge UK, January 11th, 2006: Macintosh users can obtain the latest version of Global Graphics’ easy-to-use tool for creating high-quality and robust PDF files from today. Jaws PDF Creator creates PDF files from virtually any Macintosh application. New features in Version 4.0 include the ability to produce files that are fully compliant with the PDF 1.5 specification and extended Mac OS X support, up to 10.4. Those using Jaws PDF Creator for pre-press and print production gain PDF creation settings that comply with Version 3 (2005) of the Ghent PDF Workgroup profiles in addition to PDF/X –1a: 2001 and PDF/X – 3: 2002 standards. Jaws PDF Creator v.4.0 offers a cost-effective and easy way of creating and distributing documents as PDF files. It builds on the full range of features previously available, including accurate font and color handling, the use of 128 bit encryption for high-level security and fast web downloads. Easy to install, Jaws PDF Creator lets users ‘print’ to a PDF file, or, convert PostScript or EPS files directly to PDF by drag-and-drop to the Jaws PDF Creator icon on the desktop. PDF files created using Jaws PDF Creator v.4.0 are compliant with the PDF 1.5 specification and can subsequently be used with Jaws PDF Editor and Adobe Acrobat products. Increased performance for pre-press and print users Global Graphics provides a range of pre-press plug-ins so that users can create or validate specific types of PDF files that conform to industry standards or specifications. For the first time, plug-ins which support the creation of files compliant with the PDF/X –1a: 2001 and PDF/X – 3: 2002 standards are now a standard part of the Macintosh version of Jaws PDF Creator. PDF/X is a robust subset of the PDF specification designed to enable the transmission of files from one print location to another. The GWG approved profiles define configurations that compliment PDF/X output. When GWG profiles are used with Jaws PDF Creator they reduce the chances of failure when producing PDF/X compliant files. Configurations necessary to create PDF files to match the Ghent PDF Workgroup (GWG) Version 2 (2004) and Version 3 (2005) profiles are now an integral part of Jaws PDF Creator v.4.0 for Macintosh. Users can customize their settings by selecting which configurations they wish to import, and then, when generating the PDF file, they simply select the profile they need for the job, for example, magazine advert, newspaper advert, or four color sheet fed etc. Powerful features maintained Jaws PDF Creator v.4.0 is a versatile application which provides powerful tools that can be used both by pre-press and business users. Other features include: Documents protected and secured: Confidential or sensitive business documents often require restricted user access. Jaws PDF Creator allows users to define document features such as print, annotating, editing and copying text. Access can also be limited or restricted by assigning ‘file open’ passwords. To secure files, Jaws PDF Creator uses 128-bit encryption in the BSAFE Library from RSA Corporation. PDF files optimized by proven Global Graphics technology: PDF files produced by Jaws PDF Creator can be configured to optimize the file for high-resolution printing, printing to desktop printers, or web publishing. Users can also define and save custom output configurations. Fast web download: files created by Jaws PDF Creator open quickly when downloaded from the web due to a linearization feature. The first page of the document is displayed immediately, while the rest of the file continues to download at speed behind it. Color accuracy in PDF files: for high-resolution printing Jaws PDF Creator excels at distilling files containing device-independent CIE-based colors that are all stored within the Jaws PDF file. The software also contains reliable font embedding and powerful image compression capabilities. Platform support and availability Jaws PDF Creator v.4.0 is compatible with the PDF 1.5, PDF 1.4 and PDF 1.3 specifications and runs on Mac OS X (up to 10.4), Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 and XP, 2000 Server, 2003 Server, 2003 Server running Windows Terminal Services and Citrix Metaframe Presentation Server running on Windows 2003 Server. Jaws PDF Creator v.4.0 for Macintosh or Windows is available immediately by download from http://jawspdf.com, for purchase or as a trial version that includes an evaluation watermark, and from Authorized Resellers and Distributors that can be found on http://jawspdf.com Jaws PDF Creator v.4.0 costs $84 (£47/Euro 69).
