Datalogics Expands the Adobe PDF Library Offerings to Include 64 bit Platform Support

Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO--March 4, 2005-- Datalogics, Inc. announces the expansion of their Adobe(R) PDF Library(TM) offerings to include 64 bit platform support on the HP-UX and Sun Solaris operating systems. Along with these additional platform offerings, Datalogics has optimized the performance of the PDF Library in the areas of document creation and processing, especially for larger PDF documents. The Datalogics Interface (DLI) to the Adobe PDF Library has been enhanced to allow for easier creation of PDF files. The DLI facilitates PDF creation by reducing redundant functions occurring in the PDF Library, ultimately reducing creation time. With version 7.0 of the Adobe PDF Library, Datalogics will deliver DLI versions for both the native Adobe PDF Library and the Datalogics enhanced PDF Library offerings. Using the Datalogics DL Signer(TM) enhancements to the DLI, the PDF Library now has the ability to digitally sign a PDF file at creation time. Support for conversion of text in most common encodings to Unicode output is now provided with the DLI, improving the PDF Library's ability to typeset Unicode text. In addition, using the DLI with the Adobe PDF Library, graphic files (JPEG, TIFF, GIF, BMP, PNG and PDF) can now be directly imported as graphical page elements in created PDF files. These images may be imported from memory as easily as from disk. For customers who do not desire disk-based PDF processing, the Adobe PDF Library has the ability to read and write PDF files directly to and from memory. Additional enhancements using the DLI for the PDF Library have been made, specifically to cache fonts that are used in multiple PDF files. Datalogics has also incorporated printing improvements to the Adobe PDF Library offerings. The PDF Library now has the ability to print to a device context on Windows, and the user is able to preview Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) file generation on the UNIX platforms. Enhancements to the JNI have also been made for Java developers to interface with the PDF Library directly from their Java applications. In addition, color and image rendering enhancements have been made to the PDF Library, including support for black point compensation when rendering PDF pages.
