San Diego, CA. – March 22, 2012: With the release of PCLTool SDK v12.0, PageTech continues to show its commitment to meet the evolving PCL transformation demands of HVTO printing/mailing/imaging service bureaus, developers and businesses worldwide.

PCLTool SDK v12.0 now makes it easier than ever before to extract text from complex PCL (all levels), while transforming that text into resources for TransPromo documents, or editing the text by adding OMR, IMB or 2-D barcodes for mailing applications. Version 12.0 also facilitates in splitting, indexing, merging and optimizing complex PCL.

“We are extremely pleased to add our new PCLExtract program to our product line,” says Robert Pooley, president of PageTech. “Service bureaus and developers can now use PCLExtract to easily modify their custom HVTO text extraction/transformation scripts for multiple customers, or multiple print streams from a single customer. This translates into saving development time and money.”

Enhancements in PCLTool SDK v12:

PCLExtract.exe – Manages OCR-like databases (.cdr) and text extraction coordinates (.ibl). Included with the New Service Bureau Option or as an optional add-in for unlimited page volume licensees.

GenCDR.exe – Generates Character Descriptor Recognition (.cdr) files to extract searchable text.
