Bitstream Inc. (Nasdaq: BITS) was founded in 1981 by a group of typographic professionals who foresaw the changes that the publishing world would face as the industry changed from phototypesetting to computer-based publishing. In the years since, Bitstream has become a pre-eminent, independent supplier of typeface products and technologies to the printing, publishing, and graphic arts industries.
Today, computer users have access to thousands of inexpensive digital fonts in many different formats, enabling them to easily prepare richly-formatted documents. However, this abundance of fonts and font standards has created barriers to the reliable electronic distribution and presentation of documents. Users are demanding better quality and easier distribution. Bitstream has the technologies needed to provide users with both.
