Callas has released pdfToolbox 11 this week. The new version is all about improvements to automated workflows and making PDF files production ready. The new version introduces significant additions for the sign and display market, the label and packaging market, transactional printing and more.
Global Graphics announced that the Harlequin RIP V12.1 and higher supports PDF Processing Steps.
PDF Processing Steps is a relatively new ISO standard (ISO 19593-1:2018) for clearly defining technical information (e.g. die line, varnish) in a PDF file (usually for packaging) that is not normally printed.
Martin Bailey, CTO of Global Graphics, explains in a comprehensive blog post the additional RIP functions made possible by the PDF Processing Steps.
On the Callas blog an article has appeared, in which the managing director Dietrich von Seggern reviews the development of Callas and the PDF technology.
