Quickcut recently announced its membership in the Ghent PDF Workgroup (GWG). The GWG is an international standards body, whose members comprise graphic arts professionals, prepress and publishing solutions providers and vendors of related software. It was established to create, test, and disseminate best practices and specifications for publishing workflows, and key technology members include Adobe, Agfa, Apago, Artwork Systems, Creo subsidiary of Kodak, CGC, Enfocus Software, Esko Graphics, Global Graphics, Heidelberg, One-Vision, pub-specs, Quark and Screen.

David L. Zwang, Vice Chairman of the Ghent PDF Workgroup says, "Quickcut is a welcome addition to the GWG. An innovator in digital file delivery with strong global presence, we look forward to Quickcut's active participation with the GWG to help improve publishing workflows worldwide."

According to the Sydney-based company's press release:

Quickcut enables end-to-end, color-managed, preflighted and certified, digital workflows for mono/color advertising and believes it provides the most detailed and comprehensive PDF checking service. Its applications validate files against 250+ specifications including parameters such as minimum acceptable sizes for screened text, ink color weight restrictions, permissions for float and JPEG encoding, minimum and recommended image resolutions, PDF requirements and ICC color profiles. These are in addition to clear and unambiguous data on the more obvious requirements such as trim, live and bleed dimensions.
