Jaws PDF Library for OEM Developers Unveiled by Harlequin
Press release from the issuing company
New York, NY - February 28, 2001 - On Demand Digital Printing & Publishing Conference and Expo; - Harlequin, a subsidiary of Global Graphics (EASDAQ: GLGR), today announced the release of its Jaws(TM) PDF Library v2.0, a PDF and PostScript(R) distiller based on the Jaws RIP (raster image processor) technology that enables OEMs to add value by extending customizable PDF 1.3 creation functionality to the end products they develop and sell.
With the release of Harlequin(R) Jaws PDF Library v2.0, software and systems developers can offer behind-the-scenes PDF or PostScript file conversion as a built-in, value-added feature of most application or workflow solutions.
A natural outcome of its development of Harlequin Jaws PDF Creator v2.0 - also announced today as the only affordable, fully-functional and easy-to-use alternative to Adobe Acrobat(R) Distiller - the Jaws PDF Library is based on the Jaws PDF kernel technology. Shipped with the PDF Library Software Developers Kit (SDK) are a set of DLLs for Windows, or a static library for Linux or Sun Sparc.
"The new version of the Jaws PDF Library will be of interest to OEMs who want to embed PostScript or PDF file creation or conversion within their own applications, from Web-based file conversion services to full pre-press digital workflow systems, including Harlequin's own MaxWorkFlow system," said Harlequin Jaws System Product Manager, Justin Coombes. "And, just like the Jaws PDF Creator technology on which it's based, Harlequin Jaws PDF Library is the only complete PDF conversion option for developers that's available from a company other than Adobe," Coombes noted.
