Enfocus and Alwan Color Expertise have joined forces to develop Alwan PDF Standardizer, an application designed to bring simple, reliable PDF standardization and quality control to the graphic arts market.
‘Enfocus is a leader in bringing simplicity, reliability and accuracy to PDF workflows,’ said Peter Camps, Senior Vice President, Enfocus. ‘Alwan has played a similar role in the color space. This joint effort provides a missing link between our respective offerings. With PDF Standardizer, publishers, agencies and other content creators can produce predictable, problem-free PDFs, and print service providers can more easily preflight and normalize source PDFs before placing them into production.’
The new product combines the automation and advanced preflighting capabilities of Enfocus PitStop and Enfocus Switch with the award-winning Alwan Dynamic Device Link technology, and is compliant with ISO 12647 and 15930 color requirements. This will serve to cut down on production headaches for content creators and print service providers. PDF Standardizer also offers dynamic color management, flattening of transparencies, and normalization of PDF files.
Alwan PDF Standardizer will be available in January 2009, through both Enfocus and Alwan’s distribution channels. The product will be priced at 8,000 Euro ($10,000 USD). For more information, check out the Enfocus and Alwan websites.
