PDF is Good, Control is Better

PDF HandShake includes pdfToolbox from callas software, a powerful solution for analyzing and preflighting PDF files to ensure that incoming and outgoing PDF files are production compatible.

HELIOS PDF HandShake UB64

integrates pdfToolbox into “Create PDF” printer queues, HELIOS Script Server “watched folders”, and WebShare web-based PDF preflight. pdfToolbox allows automated server-based PDF file checks.

Server-based

PDF preflight with pdfToolbox is Acrobat 6/7/8/9/X preflight compatible. It checks PDF files according to PDF 1.2 - 1.7 and PDF/X specifications. Test profiles customized and approved in Acrobat can be exported and stored on the server. The fully automated check is done on the PDF HandShake server so no additional Acrobat workstation is required. Over 600 test characteristics can be defined and combined in preflight test profiles. Over 40 industry-standard profiles are included to allow a quick start. They can be customized to meet precise needs.

Flexible PDF Preflight Reports

are  available as text, XML, and HTML files, or as an annotated PDF indicating areas with errors or warnings.

pdfToolbox is Compatible

with any PDF documents of the PDF 1.2 - 1.7 and PDF/X-3 specifications. Even the most complex PDF files are efficiently checked, including “Form XObjects”. Compared to other solutions, pdfToolbox never modifies the original PDF files when checking them, which preserves job ticket and XMP meta data. Validates and creates PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3, PDF/X-4, PDF/A-1a, PDF/A-1b.

PDF Standard Corrections

can automatically be performed by PDF HandShake Print and “Create PDF Server” to fix problems such as minimum hairline size, preserve black, convert TrueType and CID fonts to Type 1, recognize and correctly convert RGB defined white, gray and black objects, and perform ICC-based color conversion for the printing process.
