New font server helps organisations effectively manage fonts, reduce costs, and mitigate legal risks

Universal Type Server 6

New and enhanced reporting features provide unprecedented insight into any organisation’s font usage, allowing more intelligent font licensing with the potential for significant cost savings.

Extensis® announced today the immediate availability of Universal Type Server® 6, the latest version of the professional-grade font management server which helps organisations organise, sync, and distribute their font libraries. Universal Type Server 6 integrates with the most popular design applications and platforms in the market. This includes the recent release of Apple® OS X El Capitan, Adobe® Creative Cloud® 2015, Microsoft® Windows 10 and the industry’s first font manager to offer a plug-in for Adobe After Effects®.

“Universal Type Server 6 is built to make font management and font compliance simple, for both IT administrators and creative teams,” said Richard Bamford, EMEAI Business Director at Extensis. “New and enhanced reporting features provide unprecedented insight into any organisation’s font usage, allowing more intelligent font licensing with the potential for significant cost savings.”

Highlights in Universal Type Server 6 include:

  • New Font Tracking & Analysis: New and enhanced diagnostic reports provide detailed insights into font usage so companies can get a clear picture of which fonts are being used, by whom, and where there may be an excess of paid licenses. The reports also expose if unlicensed fonts are inadvertently being used so legal issues can be prevented. Reports can be viewed directly on an iPad® or Tablet, so data is available on the go.
  • Drillable & Exportable Reports: Universal Type Server’s diagnostic reports are presented in a clear, easy way and can be exported for further analysis or integration into other reports. Additionally, reports are drillable, offering deeper insights through real-time examination of the data.
  • First plug-in for Adobe After Effects: With creative users delving into projects of all types, those that include motion graphics are increasingly common. Universal Type Server’s new plug-in ensures that there’s never a missing font in Adobe After Effects projects. The plug-in utilises FontSense™, an innovative font identification technology that ensures a smooth workflow by verifying correct font activation.
  • Modern OS Support: Universal Type Server supports the industry’s latest operating systems, including Apple OS X El Capitan and Microsoft Windows 10.
  • Optimised for Adobe Creative Cloud 2015: Optimised for direct integration of font management into Adobe Photoshop®, InDesign®, Illustrator®, InCopy® and After Effects to manage fonts in professional design workflows.
