callas software’s pdfToolbox achieves compliancy with Ghent PDF Output Suite 5

Print Solutions

The Ghent Workgroup has announced that callas software’s pdfToolbox, a powerful solution for processing PDF files, has passed the test for determining quality displaying of PDF/X-4 documents and is fully compliant with the Ghent PDF Output Suite 5.

The Ghent Workgroup offers a compliancy label programme for vendor members who are compliant with the Ghent PDF Output Suite 5. In order to receive the compliancy label, a vendor must have published instructions for successful output with Ghent PDF Output Suite 5 and have submitted a proof of a successful output on their system(s). Results of processing the output suite in callas software pdfToolbox were verified by the GWG Process Control Sub-committee and assessed as fully compliant.

pdfToolbox offers powerful, dynamic and easy to integrate PDF processing, from quick visual inspection and fixing to fully unattended processing of thousands of files. Using Adobe technology, pdfToolbox provides checking and fixing of even very complex problems, colour management, imposition, conversion to and from PDF and more. The technology is used by small companies, large publishers and printers as well as OEMs that integrate the technology in their own solution.

In pdfToolbox you can open PDF files, inspect them and work with them. In pdfToolbox Desktop as well as in the automated versions of pdfToolbox (Server, CLI and SDK), you can convert PDF files into images. The built-in rasterier supports output to JPEG, PNG, TIFF or rasterised PDF documents. Additionally, there are many internal functions that use rasterisation (for example during preflight).

This means that the quality of this rasterisation is important, and a perfect way to test this is to make sure pdfToolbox is compliant to the Ghent PDF Output Suite.

Dietrich von Seggern, managing partner at callas software, said: ‘The Ghent PDF Output Suite is rapidly becoming the default standard for testing PDF/X-4 output and on-screen rendering compliance. To see that pdfToolbox is fully compliant with the Ghent PDF Output Suite is a very proud moment for all of us at callas software as we strive every day to provide our clients with the best possible solutions for their print production. This certification is another confirmation that we are on the right path.’
