Enfocus introduces support for XPS Toolkit from Actino Software

Press release from the issuing company

May 29, 2008 – Gent, Belgium – At drupa, Enfocus introduces a new configurator for Enfocus Switch that can convert XPS into PDF using the Actino Software XPS Toolkit.

Configurators in Enfocus FullSwitch and PowerSwitch allow easy configuration and automation of key third-party applications in larger automated flows. The new Actino Software XPS Toolkit configurator uses the Global Graphics eDocument Library and is designed to convert from XPS to PDF in automated workflows in a corporate or prepress environment.

On drupa 2008 the PDF specialists from Actino Software will show the new configurator for XPS Toolkit for the first time. It will be demonstrated within Enfocus PowerSwitch on the Global Graphics booth in the drupa innovation parc.

"All prepress and print companies have a PDF based production system and we give them the simple opportunity to receive XPS", says Michael Karbe, President and CEO of Actino Software. "XPS creation is free and the properties are given, so you cannot forget to embed fonts, for example. Very good reasons for printers or digital print shops to ask their customer for XPS."

“While XPS is not present to a high degree in publishing workflows today, it can be expected that more and more XPS documents will find their way to publishers and printers. Having a strategy to deal with those documents will become very important,” says David van Driessche, Director of Enfocus Marketing at Enfocus. “The new XPS Toolkit configurator offers a seamless way to integrate XPS to PDF conversion into Switch-based workflows. Publishers and printers now have a high-quality conversion path from XPS to PDF – a file format they know how to deal with.”
