PageTrimmer is an automated hot-folder based application for trimming (cropping) of PDF- and (ripped) TIFF-pages to definable page formats. PageTrimmer is typically used for normalizing pages prior to imposition. The normalizing process ensures that pages are in the correct size and that the content of the page is positioned correctly within the page.
PageTrimmer can be installed as stand-alone application or can be integrated with the ControlCenter workflow where page format information is determined by the ControLCenter production database.
