Datalogics has a unique business relationship with Adobe Inc. Although we are a separately owned and operated company, at one point we were wholly owned by Adobe. Today Adobe retains interest in Datalogics as an Adobe Portfolio Company.
We work closely with Adobe, and meet with them regularly not only at their headquarters in San Jose, but also at their development offices in India. We have source-code level agreement for many of their PDF developer technologies; and fixes that we make to the code are sent back to Adobe for incorporation into the code line.
We are the key channel for licensing several of Adobe’s PDF developer toolkits, including the Adobe PDF Library SDK and Adobe Normalizer SDK, and have been doing this since 1998. Odds are, for example, that if you fill out Adobe’s request for information form on their website, then you will eventually be contacted by us. We have a special source-code -level agreement with Adobe for these SDKs. This enables us to identify and address bugs, and provide fixes for our customers. It also enables us to port these toolkits to other platforms.
We are also the exclusive licensor of Adobe’s PDF Print Engine for software application developers; and we also license Adobe’s InDesign Server toolkit to OEMs.
Licensing this broad portfolio of Adobe’s PDF developer technologies enables us to work with companies to determine the most appropriate technology for their situation. Having access to these technologies also enables us to provide Adobe consistency, reliability, and compatibility in our other products, too. We use the Adobe PDF Library SDK in our PDF2IMG utility; and the PDF output capabilities of our composition tools are also powered by the PDF Library.
