Adobe Launches PDF Printing Service SDK

PDF Transit allows customers to print to service bureau's server By Dave Nagel
Adobe today launched a new software development kit for service bureaus that want to offer PDF services to customers. The new PDF Transit allows print shops to offer services for the submission and management of PDF-based jobs. It's targeted at companies that build printing workflow solutions and is designed to improve the submission, approval and printing processes. PDF Transit offers PDF- and JDF-based services.

On the customer end, Transit allows users to create and preview their work on their desktop computer and then submit the work in secured PDF format for final printing. According to Adobe, it works like this: When PDF Transit is integrated into a print service, customers can use the Print command from within any application to select a printing service from within their print dialog box. When the user selects OK, a print-ready PDF is created for their review, and a browser automatically connects them to their printer's Web server. Additional information can be obtained about the job, such as finishing and billing options, depending on implementation and the services offered by the print shop or ASP.
