Press release from the issuing company

Encino, CA – June 2, 2006 – Enfocus, the world leader in PDF quality management solutions for the graphic arts industry, today announces it will present demonstrations of its entire line of Certified PDF solutions, including recently unveiled PitStop Automate, PitStop Professional 7 and Instant Barcode; at the How Design Conference being held at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas from June 12-15, 2006. “Increasing numbers of designers are using Enfocus solutions – especially Instant PDF – primarily because we don't ask designers to learn anything new, or do anything different. Adding Enfocus to the creative professional's software mix will guarantee that their PDFs will conform to their printers' workflows, and move along the production chain accordingly, to get to customers faster. The files won't come back to the designers. It's that simple,” says Erik Cullins, Enfocus Director of Sales & Marketing, North America. Enfocus Instant PDF insures that designers' files are Certified PDF, which confirms that a file meets prepress and print specifications for production. Attendees will have the opportunity to take part in hands-on demonstrations of the newest Enfocus products at the HOW Conference via onsite demonstrations at the Resource Center; and at Computer Classroom Sessions, on the following dates and times: Resource Center Demonstration Monday, June 12: 8:10 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. Monday, June 12: 5:10 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Computer Classroom Session Tuesday, June 13: 11 - 11:45 a.m. Wednesday, June 14: 4 - 4:45 p.m. Just-Released CertifiedPDF Products Being Shown PitStop Professional 7 Enfocus PitStop Professional 7 is known as the industry standard for PDF preflighting and editing. The newest version brings a host of powerful new functionality based on customer feedback. Today in use on over 70,000 workstations, PitStop Professional 7 is an Adobe Acrobat plug-in indispensable for every graphic arts and publishing professional. In this newest version, Enfocus engineers have totally revamped the preflight report, while the Enfocus Navigator enables interactive fixing and speeds up file repair by clearly indicating errors - in the end offering the most productive and intuitive preflight and fixing experience available. Its powerful Certified PDF technology provides immediate visual feedback and allows tracking of every edit made to a PDF. Enfocus Certified PDF makes PDF a more powerful production format by embedding the PDF profile originally used to preflight the file. A detailed preflight report and an audit trail of all edits made to the PDF are also created. Enfocus PitStop Automate PitStop Automate is a task-based production automation tool that allows design studios, ad agencies, printers and publishers to increase productivity and output consistency by introducing automation at an affordable price. An intuitive graphical user interface makes it straightforward to design complete automation workflows. PitStop Automate's advanced routing capabilities enable it to intelligently guide files through the entire production process, avoiding the need for manual intervention. PitStop Automate closely integrates with Acrobat Distiller and includes Enfocus' renowned PDF editing and preflighting, as well as automation functionality. A natural upgrade from Enfocus PitStop Server, PitStop Automate takes production automation to the next level. Crucial to a fully automated production process, PitStop Automate incorporates Certified PDF, Enfocus' award-winning technology. PitStop Automate combines powerful internal capabilities while at the same time controlling third party applications, forming the glue between the different steps in the production process. Any hot-folder-based application can be integrated through the “Generic Application” task. PitStop Automate will hand the job over to the applications and pick it up again after it has been processed. Another way of driving external applications is through Apple Script integration. Finally, third-party developers can use the PitStop Automate SDK plug into their solution into PitStop Automate. Enfocus Instant Barcode – an Adobe Illustrator plug-in Enfocus Instant Barcode allows professional graphic designers to easily generate, check and read barcodes – a rapidly increasing design component – within their familiar software design environments. With Instant PDF, Enfocus has proven it understands the needs of creative professionals. With Instant Barcode, the company brings an additional product to market that makes the day-to-day life of graphic designers easier and more productive. With such a limited number of reliable, user-friendly products available for the creation of barcodes within design applications, Enfocus has re-branded and upgraded the products previously known as Barcode Toolbox and Barcode Checkup, to provide creative professionals with a more integrated solution.
