callas pdfToolbox 9



Webinar: Building a pdfToolbox Place Content template from scratch
- 2016-11-23 (1:36:51)


The place content technology in pdfToolbox uses HTML templates
to determine what gets added to your PDF documents.
Creating such a template for the first time can be a bit of a challenge,
even if you have some understanding of HTML, CSS and Javascript.

In this webinar, we’ll go through a number of very simple examples
to show the basic principles of these templates and to get you going.
Once you understand those principles,
it will be much easier to understand how to build your own templates
and use place content to its fullest.

Webinar: Evolutions in preflight standards - Jan. 20, 2016 (1:18:32)

15 years ago, the first preflight standard for PDF was invented.
Since that ‘invention’ of the PDF/X-1a standard, things have involved quite a bit
and today it can be challenging to find out which standard to use best.

During this webinar you’ll get an overview of the existing standards,
what the differences are and what their strengths are and which one to use best.

And if so, what standard should you use?

This webinar explains the ins and outs of preflight, both manually and automatically.
Expect a mix of theory and practice!

callas pdfToolbox 7 Webinar - Preflighting - who cares? (1:00:57)

callas software introduces you to preflighting, the importance of preflighting,
and the major functionalities and benefits of callas pdfToolbox 7.

In this 1-hour video David van Driessche, CTO at Four Pees, talks about
the basics of Preflighting and the major functionalities of callas pdfToolbox
for organizations who like to avoid output errors, save time and money,
and maintain healthy customer relations.
callas pdfToolbox, the powerful visual inspection and automatic correction tool,
allows you to quickly prepare files for any intended output.
For fully automated batch processing, there’s callas pdfToolbox Server,
the server product that uses the same robust PDF preflighting technology
found in Adobe® Acrobat®, but allows you to batch process your files.
And for transparency and color management issues, it will correct files so they
output as expected through almost any RIP, meaning you don’t have to make
expensive equipment replacements as PDF technology develops.

callas pdfToolbox 7 Webinar - Long: All new features (56:11)

callas pdfToolbox 7 is a significant step forward in making
PDF quality control and production workflows more accurate.
The core PDF and font libraries in callas pdfToolbox have received a
major update to improve speed and reliability of processing troublesome PDF files.
The more compact and adjustable preflight report improves clear communication with customers,
and the operator checkpoints allow manual intervention in automated workflows.
Close - IconClose Window


callas pdfToolbox 7 Webinar - Short: Checkpoint (10:57)

In any automated workflow, problem files and the fact that they must be
investigated and or fixed manually, proves to be a difficult step to implement.
While callas pdfToolbox can often correct as much the vast majority of the incoming PDF files,
unavoidably some PDF files need manual intervention.
With callas pdfToolbox 7, this manual intervention step is built right into
the callas pdfToolbox Server and callas pdfToolbox Desktop applications.
Problem files can be kept in a “waiting room” within callas pdfToolbox Server
instead of moving them immediately to the error folder.
Operators using callas pdfToolbox Desktop see that list of problem files right inside their callas pdfToolbox interface;
they can open those files on their desktop machine,
inspect or modify them using the callas pdfToolbox tools and
decide to reject them, overrule potential errors or approve a corrected version.
callas pdfToolbox Server keeps track of who checked the PDF file out to avoid
multiple operators losing time by looking at the same file, and
moves the files to the success or error output folder based on the operator’s decision.

callas pdfToolbox 7 Webinar - Short: Preflight Report - Adjustable Layout (6:42)

For your clients, the preflight report listing errors and warnings is often
the only contact they have with your production workflow;
that makes such reports essential in conveying the proper information.
callas pdfToolbox 7 comes with a new preflight report layout that is much more visually attractive,
provides the information in a more clear and concise way and is fully customizable
so that you can add your company logo or brand colors when needed.

callas pdfToolbox 7 Webinar - Short: Transparency Flattening (10:02)

Transparency flattening is still unavoidable in many of today’s production workflows;
while callas pdfToolbox has always provided top-notch transparency flattening,
callas pdfToolbox 7 uses updated Adobe libraries that give smoother results and better overall performance.
The same engine can also flatten overprint throughout a PDF file;
avoiding overprint problems on RIPs that have issues in that regard.

callas pdfToolbox 7 Webinar - Short: Determine the x-height of text (4:59)

Specifically for packaging workflows, a new preflight check can accurately check the x-height of text.
This is especially important in light of the new EU regulation for text size on packaging material
that requires this particular check (as the regulation is expressed using x-height rather than point size).
For regular production workflows callas pdfToolbox 7 also supports the GWG 2012 specifications for ads and commercial print.

callas pdfToolbox 7 Webinar - Short: Cropping (2:37)
