Most of you, especially here in Europe would know about Beuth Verlag as one of Germany’s largest suppliers of specialist information and knowledge and a pioneer in the use of top-quality, long-lasting products and services. In 2019, the publisher adopted callas software’s solutions pdfaPilot and pdfToolbox to automatically process, convert and validate PDF/A and PDF/X files. So how did callas really help Beuth significantly reduce its manual workload?
I believe DPart is one of the most important new features in PDF 2.0. DPart is page based metadata in a PDF file, stored in a hierarchy to group pages into “document parts”. From a prepress point of view, it can be the most important feature – together with page based output intents. In combination, they are powerful tools for automation, for page based automation. Page based automation allows for bringing even more intelligence into workflows, for performance improvements and possible integration of print and post print steps into automated workflows.
What an unusual year 2020, wasn’t it? A lot of things changed at callas too. A quick look at the numbers from the past year.
