Callas software releases a milestone update for its pdfToolbox product line: pdfToolbox 10. The new version takes a significant new step in preflight technology by making it possible to detect more problems, while making detection more accurate. It also makes pdfToolbox ready for cloud deployment and introduces additional capabilities for process plans (for step-by-step conditional processing of PDF files), preflight reports and more.
For the first time, pdfToolbox 10 introduces a preflight engine that has the capability to check the relationship between objects in a very flexible and broad fashion. Dietrich von Seggern, Managing Director at callas software, comments: “One of the big challenges of preflight in automated workflows is avoiding false positives: files that are no problem in production, but are still flagged as problematic. Better detection possibilities in pdfToolbox 10 will dramatically reduce this problem and thus increase the productivity of automated workflows using it.”
“This is a real game changer”, adds David van Driessche, CTO at Four Pees, callas’ distribution partner. “Automation is crucial for companies to remain competitive, and pdfToolbox 10 enables better automation. pdfToolbox 10 provides deep analysis not just of single objects, but of objects in the context of all the other objects in the PDF. It required advances in computing power and clever mathematics to finally allow this to happen.”
