Global Graphics adds OS X support and new file delivery alternatives to
Jaws PDF Courier(TM) SDK

Cambridge, UK and Las Vegas; November 18, 2003 — Mac OS X-based print
providers and their customers now have full access to the Client Builder
and Certified PDF generation capabilities of Jaws PDF Courier, software for
customized creation and delivery of documents in Portable Document Format
(PDF), thanks to today’s release of the latest Jaws PDF Courier SDK from
Global Graphics Software, a subsidiary of Global Graphics SA (Euronext:
GLOG). The new SDK was introduced at Comdex Las Vegas 2003.

In addition to full Mac OS X support, this new version of Jaws PDF Courier
features an enhanced “SendIt” application that broadens Macintosh and
Windows users’ alternatives for delivering Certified PDF files beyond the
Internet. By launching other applications such as a user’s CD writer under
program control, the new SendIt module enables content creators to route
fully encrypted and preflighted PDF job files to their service provider in
any number of ways — such as on CD or ZIP disk, or to send the file to
their FTP site for pickup. The new Sendit module allows alternative
deliveries based on a file size threshold setting, this includes custom
messages prompt or command line program execution. Based on file size,
smaller files can upload normally over the Internet and larger files can be
handled with an alternate process automatically.

” Adding Mac OS X support and more flexible delivery options to our
easily-deployed Jaws PDF Courier SDK gives our Authorized System Integrator
and OEM partners the most powerful, flexible and cost-effective tools
available to ensure customers’ job files can be produced,” said Ralph
Lloyd, Vice President of Product Marketing, Global Graphics Software. “Now,
print providers can make controlled PDF creation and preflighting readily
available to all their customers in the way that’s best for them,
regardless of whether they use Macs or PCs.”

Foolproof PDF File Submission
Jaws PDF Courier is a highly configurable software development kit (SDK)
that enables corporate or commercial print service providers to build and
deploy a custom-branded, cost-effective PDF file submission system to their
clients — as a download from their website or delivered on a CD. It also
includes functionality that permits seamless integration with browser-based
applications that provide web-based job ticketing, confirmation, tracking,
auditing and billing systems. The comprehensive set of software tools
provided with the Jaws PDF Courier SDK enables the print provider to
implement a sophisticated and easy-to-use workflow designed to provide a
fast return on investment.

The latest Jaws PDF Courier SDK includes all features of the previous
version, including client-side Enfocus PitStop preflighting and
award-winning Enfocus Certified PDF technology. The new version also
includes 128-bit encryption for secure delivery on any media, a range of
page sizes, improved color handling, accuracy, and support for PDF1.4 and
PDF/X, all of which serve to make highly automated efficient workflows a
reality for virtually any print service provider and any production
workflow — from corporate in-plant and quick printing to digital printing
and CTP for high-end applications.

Focus on Printability
The preflighting option in Jaws PDF Courier can prevent content creators
from sending a file to their print provider until it passes the
certification process. The software performs a thorough check of the PDF
file according to settings pre-defined by the print provider, repairs most
errors, and provides the users with details needed to correct any remaining
errors. Because preflighting is carried out at the customer site where the
original file is located, any errors can be repaired more quickly, easily
and cheaply. As a result, printers receive files they can produce
successfully and efficiently.

The PDF files created by Jaws PDF Courier can be reviewed in soft-proof by
the content creator, but they can be delivered only to the printer that
provided the PDF delivery application. At the print site, these incoming
PDF files can be double-checked to make sure they are still certified.
Files that pass muster can be delivered confidently into the workflow.

Jaws PDF Courier PDF creation and electronic delivery technology is being
adopted around the world, with installations by Global Graphics Software
Authorized System Integrators and print service providers in Australia/New
Zealand, Europe and the United States.
