Apago Previews New Version of PDF Enhancer at OnDemand/AIIM Show

Press release from the issuing company

New York, NY; March 8, 2004 – Apago, Inc., a software developer of PDF workflow tools, is previewing version 2.5 of PDF Enhancer at the OnDemand/AIIM show here at the Javits Center this week. Some of the new features to be demonstrated include new document optimization and assembly capabilities and tools for the creation of electronic editions of print magazines and newspapers. “PDF Enhancer is already one of the most powerful PDF optimization and repurposing tools available. We have continued adding powerful new features, such as font subsetting, to PDF Enhancer based on feedback from our customers,” said Dwight Kelly, president of Apago. “The process of converting a print magazine or newspaper to an electronic edition is labor intensive and expensive. Online content resellers, such as Newstand and Zinio, can charge publishers a processing fee for each issue. The new tools in PDF Enhancer can quickly convert a print magazine to an e-magazine, saving thousands of dollars in fees annually.” PDF Enhancer 2.5 can automatically merge single pages into one document, crop pages to the trim size, reduce the resolution of images, convert colors to RGB, remove unused elements, add metadata and secure the document to prevent unauthorized use. Newspapers often contain high-resolution halftoned images, which if simply scaled, would be illegible. PDF Enhancer 2.5 can “descreen” the halftoned images to produce a high quality grayscale image. PDF Enhancer 2.5 is expected to ship before the end of March 2004 and will be available for Windows, Mac OS X and Solaris.
