March 22, 2001 -- HELIOS Software GmbH, a leading provider of network and prepress software, announced both its server products and client support for Mac OS X. HELIOS expects to ship the updated server software and client support by the time Apple pre-loads Mac OS X onto new Macintosh CPUs. HELIOS' leading server products now in beta and being demonstrated during CeBIT include EtherShare 2.6, PCShare 3.0, EtherShare OPI 2.1, PDF Handshake including PDF Internet Printing and Print Preview.
The HELIOS Macintosh software programs EtherShare Admin, LAN Test, Tagger, and Touch will also be available soon for Mac OS X. HELIOS client software enables users to configure users, groups, volumes, printers, fonts, OPI settings, spot colors, and other server settings remotely using a networked CPU running Mac OS X. The HELIOS remote server administration programs fully utilize Mac OS X features including the Aqua GUI, "Drag and Drop” support to manage printer queues, move/copy users, ColorSync support for spot colors and other server administration tasks.
"With five server products and four client-side applications for Mac OS X, HELIOS is once again proving its leadership in providing innovative, high-performance networking servers and prepress workflow tools, as well unsurpassed support for Apple's new operating platform”, noted Helmut Tschemernjak, president of HELIOS Software GmbH.
