    Innovates with PCL6 Parser, enhanced PDF/A generator for ECM Archiving,
    E-Statement and Print Applications

    TORONTO, Nov. 27 /CNW/ - Xenos Group Inc. (TSX: XNS) announced today the
release of Xenos d2e Vision(TM) v3.0 for transforming print documents into
electronic formats. Designed for rapid and seamless integration with
e-Business applications, version 3.0 includes a new PCL parser supporting the
PCL 6/XL format, an enhanced PDF/A generator and numerous new features and
performance-increasing enhancements.
    Xenos continues to innovate with new and enhanced capabilities in Xenos
d2e Vision, written 100% in Java, to meet the business and technical
requirements of our industry-leading customers and partners.

    
    New Features in Xenos d2e Vision Version 3.0 include:

    -   New PCL Parser: Transforms PCL printed output for desktop or
        production printers to other viewing and print formats. Supports
        PCL6/XL.

    -   Enhanced Barcode Support in AFP Parser: Enhanced barcode capabilities
        to existing support added to AFP Parser in version 2.1 for all the
        major barcode (BCOCA) formats including 2D-Matrix.

    -   PDF/A Font Subsetting: The PDF/A generator, released in September
        2006, has been enhanced to support the subsetting of embedded fonts
        to minimize storage requirements for long-term archiving. Subsetting
        reduces the file size of the generated PDF/A file by only including
        the characters of a font that are actually used in the document.

    -   PDF Generator Fonts: Further enhanced Font Mapping capabilities to
        enable dynamic inter-character adjustment, further increasing the
        fidelity of generated PDF documents.

    -   Double-Byte Character Support: Further enhanced existing industry-
        leading double-byte character support with support for Japanese
        double-byte raster character sets and Chinese character sets within
        PCL documents for transformation.

    -   AFP Generator Enhancements: Anamorphic images support added for AFP
        IOCA objects. Added AFP font generation from TrueType fonts. Enhanced
        TLE placement and generation capabilities. Compression added for Page
        Segment resources generated.

    -   Image Conversion: Added the conversion of grayscale images in PDF to
        the AFP RGB standard for AFP generation.

    -   Performance Enhancements: Improved existing highly scalable
        performance capabilities.
