Global Graphics releases enhanced version of Jaws PDF Courier

Press release from the issuing company

Cambridge, UK and Centreville, VA; July 28, 2003 —Global Graphics Software, a subsidiary of Global Graphics S A , today released Jaws PDF Courier 1.2, an enhanced version of its software for customized creation and Internet-based delivery of documents in Portable Document Format (PDF) that now places preflighting upstream at customer sites to assure print service providers that the PDF files they receive can be printed. Easy to deploy, the addition of comprehensive and affordable preflighting makes highly automated, efficient workflows a reality for virtually any print service provider and any production workflow -- from corporate in-plant and quick printing to digital printing and CTP for high-end applications. This new development results from an OEM technology agreement announced in May 2003 between Global Graphics Software, a leading developer and supplier of high-performance solutions for document creation, management and printing, and Enfocus, a subsidiary of Artwork Systems Group (Nasdaq Europe:AWSG) and internationally recognized as a pioneer of PDF related software, to integrate Enfocus PitStop preflighting and award-winning Certified PDF technology into Jaws PDF Courier. “Putting unprintable PDF files into production disrupts workflow and takes a heavy toll on service providers’ already thin profit margins,” said Ralph Lloyd, Vice President of Product Marketing, Global Graphics Software. “Jaws PDF Courier 1.2 tackles the problem of printability by maintaining a high degree of control over how PDF files are produced and by placing comprehensive PDF preflighting upstream at the customer site with highly regarded Enfocus PitStop technology. Now, print providers can make controlled PDF creation, including files that comply with standards like PDF/X, and preflighting readily available to the customer to maximize production efficiency.”
