Beside common PDF files, cFlow now also handles separated PDF files, EPS-, PostScript (PS) and bitmap formats (TIFF, JPEG and PNG) as well as Microsoft Office files (a copy of MS-Office must be installed on the cFlow server). All file formats are transformed into PDF files by cFlow. Subsequently, these documents can be checked for errors (preflight) and corrected and then be passed to color management as required. These feature and further functions, allow users to utilize cFlow as well as a PDF server.
