Putting PDF into Production
"PowerUp was designed as a simplified text and graphics editing program for those who are just getting started on the path to PDF workflow," Sugnet says. Enfocus will also debut WebPerfect, a Web optimization tool that allows users to take PDFs originally formatted for four-color print to the Web via easy downsampling for reduced file sizes. Sugnet reports the company will show Seybold attendees an upgrade to PitStop Server, the solution for those working in high volume PDF environments. He reports that PitStop Server's dramatically enhanced speed will be of particular value to organizations working with big documents such as books.
As PDF matures, Sugnet and Enfocus expect to see even more specialization. "We're ahead of the PDF curve, and ready for everything users throw at us, because we're taking the time to figure out what they'll do with PDF even before they start having problems with it."
