PageTechSM Announces Release of its New PCLMagic Printer Drivers -| PageTech Becomes First US Member of the PDF/A Competence Center |

PageTech, the leader in PCL print stream transformation, extraction, and re-engineering software, today announced the release of its new PCLMagic Printer Driver. This new industry-exclusive PCL printer driver embeds searchable text into PCL print streams before the printer driver generates them, saving all the text in its natural unscrambled state. Both the monochrome (PCL5e) and color (PCL5c) PCLMagic drivers call our custom programs to insert Unicode and UTF-8 text values into the print stream to circumvent the way in which Windows printer drivers "scramble" the text in PCL print streams.

"Our exclusive ability to extract text before it's scrambled and use it to create text searchable PDF files from complex PCL is what truly sets us apart from the competition," says Robert Pooley, president of PageTech. "The PCLMagic driver enables us to capture text in any language and extract it later downstream for file splitting, auto-indexing, converting to fully text searchable PDFs or re-purposing into TransPromo documents".
