Print production tools from callas software compatible with "Snow Leopard"

Press release from the issuing company

Berlin - callas software is happy to announce that its proven PDF tools for print production and long-term archiving support "Snow Leopard", the new operating system from Apple. With a large user community on the Mac, callas has yet again shown its commitment to providing its customers with the best and fastest possible support for new host applications and operating systems.

callas software is available in the Americas through Tools4Media.

On August 28th, 2009, the new Mac operating system - Mac OS X 10.6, called "Snow Leopard" - became available worldwide. Snow Leopard introduces a vast speed increase, improved stability and new functions and improvements that all callas software users can now benefit from. Extensive series of tests at callas software in the last few weeks showed that both the "pdfToolbox" product line for Publishing and Print Production as well as the "pdfaPilot" product line for Archiving and Document Exchange further improve their speed, stability and versatility under Snow Leopard.

callas pdfToolbox - a visual inspection and automatic correction tool - allows you to quickly prepare files for any intended output.

For fully automated batch processing, there's callas pdfToolbox Server - a server product that uses the same robust PDF preflighting technology found in Adobe Acrobat but that allows you to batch process your files.

And for fully color managed transparency flattening, callas pdfAutoOptimizer will correct files so they output as expected through almost any RIP, meaning you don't have to make expensive equipment replacements as PDF technology develops.

Being the document file format of choice, PDF is the one technology that can be trusted to guarantee how documents will display over a long period of time, but archives must also prove to be authentic, reliable, complete, unaltered, and usable across time, and to achieve this PDFs must meet the international PDF/A standard. From pdfaPilot, running on individual workstations, to the fully customizable pdfaPilot Server solution that allows you to quickly output large numbers of PDF/A compliant files, callas' long term archiving solutions will guarantee a future-proof archiving strategy for all your electronic documents.
