TMO at MWSF - Universal Type Server Offers New Font Management Tools

by , 11:15 AM EST, January 15th, 2008

Extensis on Tuesday introduced Universal Type Server, a new font management solution that replaces the company’s Suitcase and Font Reserve Server products and will be available in Lite, Professional, and Corporation versions when it ships this spring. The company will be showcasing the software at this week’s Macworld Expo.

Universal Type Server is a Java-based server with a secure SQL backend. It features web-based user administration, Active directory integration, support for Mac and Windows clients, support for mobile users, font license tracking, customizable previews that use Apple’s Core animation technology, and more. It also supports Exntensis’ Font Sense technology, with auto-activation plug-ins for Adobe InDesign and Illustrator as well as Xtensions for QuarkXPress.

The Lite version supports up to 10 concurrent connections, while Professional allows up to 250 and Corporate goes beyond that. Extensis said that this will be a free upgrade to existing customers who have current Annual Service Agreements. The client and server versions of the software will support PowerPC and Intel processors, as well as Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger and v10.5 Leopard.
