05/12/01 - (WhatTheyThink.com) - Enfocus has decided after careful evaluation to incorporate EZ-PDF technology into new product offerings slated for later this year. The company had said at Seybold Boston in April that they would introduce an updated version of the EZ-PDF product "later in this quarter."
According to a statement released by Judy Sweeny on the company's behalf, Enfocus decided instead of diluting its engineering resources to update and release a new version of EZ-PDF, Enfocus would concentrate fully on incorporating the EZ-PDF technologies into existing and new product offerings. The statement also indicated that the new products will provide an upgrade path and enhanced functionality to current EZ-PDF users.
Enfocus Software acquired ownership of EZ-PDF software technology in early April. Acquired Knowledge, the originators of EZ-PDF, ceased operations in January.
EZ-PDF facilitates the creation of PDF documents from within native applications like Quark Xpress and Adobe InDesign. With EZ-PDF, creating a PDF is as easy as selecting "print." EZ-PDF's "printer" choices generate PDF files appropriate for particular purposes such as prepress, on-demand printing, web (display), or large format output. EZ-PDF also facilitates the transmission of PDF files once they have been created, for instance by automatically sending them to an FTP server, or importing in PitStop server. The product is available on both Mac and Windows platforms.
