Portland, Oregon – Mar. 1, 2004 –
SwiftView, Inc., today released SwiftView version 7.0, a substantial upgrade that supports viewing and printing of all PCL version 6 documents, including color.

"SwiftView's support for color expands the usability of PCL as a highly accurate portable document format from any Windows® application, like business presentations, color photos, highlighted spreadsheets, full-color maps, and more," said Glenn Widener, SwiftView Tools product manager.  "SwiftView and PCL handle a greater range of business documents with ease, including huge documents like ERP reports, bills, etc.  With no-cost authoring, optional SwiftPublish and SwiftReprint document packaging and workflow tools, and SwiftView's flexible licensing, users can expect dramatic improvements in both productivity and the bottom line, especially compared with proprietary formats."

The key features of SwiftView version 7.0 include:

  • Color document support: supports PCL6, including color.
  • Enhanced text search: more file formats, from more sources, faster, using less memory.   Text analysis includes text export with full character position information.
Version 7.0 also incorporates:
  • Fonts On Demand/Macros On Demand: browser-based SwiftView automatically downloads from the Web any macros or fonts required by the PCL document.  Fonts and macros are cached once downloaded, enabling easy and efficient online forms implementation, and improving accuracy and performance for documents that depend on printer-resident fonts.
  • WAN licensing option: licenses an entire wide-area network with one license file.

NOTE: PCL is the native format for HP LaserJet and many other laser printers; it is easily created by printing "to file" with an appropriate driver - no printer is needed.  PCL files are extremely accurate because they are the actual original document as printed.
