Being able to remap print streams with download outline font characters not mapped to Unicode or UTF-8 gives us a distinct advantage over our competition
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 19, 2015
PageTech, a global leader in HP PCL print stream transformation, optimization, and text extraction, today announced the release and general availability of PCLTool SDK V15. This release offers many new features and functions including a new text extraction method that can unscramble Chinese and other double-byte print streams back into legible Unicode or UTF-8 text.
PCLTool SDK v15.0 Major Enhancements:
- Support for Text Extraction of Double Byte Typefaces - New tools that solve the problem of unscrambling CJK and other text for keyword detection, file splitting, indexing, and watermarking.
- Support for Printer Resident Chinese, Japanese and Korean Double-Byte Typefaces - Print streams referencing printer resident CJK typefaces can now be converted to PDF format.
- PCLTool SDK for Linux – New command line-driven PCL2PDF and script-driven PCLXForm programs are now available for Linux developers at pricing without limits for the number of users or pages.
“Being able to remap print streams with download outline font characters not mapped to Unicode or UTF-8 gives us a distinct advantage over our competition,” said Robert Pooley, president of PageTech. “These new capabilities allow us to support applications in the Asian-Pacific market that have been out of reach until now. Like the Chinese government’s push to search all print streams for the inclusion of keywords that require a security watermark.”
A fully functional evaluation copy of PCLTool SDK v15.0 (32-bit or 64-bit) is available for download from PageTech’s pcltools.com website. All PageTech products come with a 30-day refund guarantee and a single license for PCLTool SDK starts at $425 USD with optional custom configuration available.
