A little about Monotype Imaging

We bring text imaging and graphical user interface solutions to consumer electronics devices such as laser printers, copiers, mobile phones, digital televisions, set-top boxes, navigation devices, digital cameras, e-book readers and consumer appliances. We also offer font solutions to independent software vendors who develop applications and operating systems.

In the laser printer market, we’ve worked with industry leaders for more than 18 years to provide critical technology components embedded in printing standards. Our solutions meet OEM font requirements, from conforming to the type specifications of HP and Adobe to rendering clear, legible text on control panel displays.

Many printers today employ our patented UFST® (Universal Font Scaling Technology) and MicroType® compression technologies. Our solutions also help OEMs save development costs through the integration of our printer drivers and the use of our ColorSet™ imaging tools for embedding patented, high-quality color capabilities in printers.

Across the globe, consumer electronics devices such as mobile handsets, set-top boxes and e-book readers employ Monotype Imaging’s iType® font engine. Our iType Connects™ plug-in simplifies implementation within a variety of popular development environments.

iType also integrates our Edge™ Technology for displaying East Asian text with typographic style within a small memory footprint. Additionally, many devices use Monotype Imaging’s WorldType® Layout Engine, which enables the on-screen composition, positioning and rendering of multilingual text.
