Advanced Barcode Design Software for Mac OS X

TEC-IT (, a global barcode software provider, announced the availability of Barcode Studio for Mac OS X.

Steyr, Austria, June 24, 2008 --( Barcode Studio makes life easier for Mac users. This visual barcode designer provides a quick and easy way to create virtually all linear, 2D, composite and GS1 bar codes - Barcode Studio supports more than 80 bar codes.

"With Mac OS X support TEC-IT simply fulfills the requirements of the market. We have seen an increasing demand for native Mac OS X software in our business. This is especially true for 2D bar codes, which are currently used in areas such as mobile marketing and mobile tagging. While our first step was to provide a bar code generator library for Mac OS X software developers, Barcode Studio now provides this functionality for each Mac user." notes Gunter Kriegl, CEO.

Bar codes are created with the help of an instant preview, all relevant bar code parameters can be adjusted accurately. Integration of the generated bar codes in the user’s artwork is supported in various ways: bar codes may be copied onto the clipboard, saved as bitmap image or exported as EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) file.

Barcode Studio estimates the quality of the printed or exported bar code before output takes place. This quality estimator avoids costly print-outs and ensures bar codes with perfect readability. Both designers as well as print and prepress professionals benefit from this unique feature. Even the creation of multiple bar codes is automated easily. The batch creation feature can be used with external data, with sequences created by Barcode Studio or with shell scripts.

The application can be downloaded from the company’s website. The universal executable supports PowerPC as well as Intel platforms on Mac OS 10.4 or higher.
