Software Solutions

Global Graphics Software has announced the release of Mako Core version 7.0, an update to the popular SDK aimed at developers who create document processing and manipulation capabilities for print applications.

Named after the mako shark for its speed and intelligence, Mako Core 7.0 introduces an intelligent Document Object Model (iDOM) that provides unparalleled access to every aspect of a document's composition, including fonts, images, vector art, layers, and metadata. With iDOM, developers can effortlessly craft intelligent solutions tailored to the specific requirements of the print industry. Unlike other SDKs that offer generic support for various Page Description Languages (PDLs) such as PDF, PS, OXPS, and PCL across print and digital document domains, Mako is sharply focused on print.

‘Mako offers developers a robust solution for processing and manipulating PDLs, with a strong emphasis on print related functionalities,’ explained David Stevenson, Mako's product manager. ‘Whether you are building a PDF viewer, editor, or a custom workflow component, Mako provides the essential print intelligence, acquired by Global Graphics over 30 years, eliminating the need for extensive developer expertise. Moreover, it serves as an excellent platform for creating cutting edge smart print applications, incorporating technologies like machine learning and Artificial Print Intelligence, as demonstrated in our groundbreaking Streamline Direct product.’

Mako Core 7.0 now incorporates a powerful colour management module (CMM) using technology from sister company ColorLogic GmbH to guarantee ICC profile compatibility and consistent colour rendering. With its versatile APIs developers can easily evaluate and transform colour properties, enabling precise corrections and streamlined workflows. Mako also offers robust support for extended gamut colour, enabling vibrant reproduction beyond the traditional CMYK colour space.

Version 7.0 also introduces a powerful layout engine that enables seamless text flow in paragraphs and columns, with support for right to left text flow as seen in languages like Hebrew.
