Microsoft TrueType Font Rasterizer
Monotype Imaging now offers developers the Microsoft font rasterizer as a high quality rendering module in the Ascender Font System
Since its introduction as part of Windows® 3.1, the Microsoft font rasterizer has been used by millions of users on both desktop and mobile platforms, with numerous updates to improve its security and stability. It has become the standard by which other rendering technologies are judged.
The Microsoft font rasterizer uses patented TrueType rendering algorithms. This allows hinted TrueType fonts to be rendered with greater accuracy, improving the on-screen rendering of fonts. The opportunity to render hinted fonts has consistently been sought after by consumer electronics, mobile devices, industrial displays and many other products with which feature a screen to display text.
For developers that require a fast, small, high quality font engine that comes with TrueType patent indemnification, the Microsoft font rasterizer is recommended. Because it is optimized for CE devices, the Microsoft font rasterizer is the perfect choice for companies who want the highest quality screen display without IP licensing issues.
Monotype Imaging is proud to offer the Microsoft font rasterizer as part of the Ascender Font System to hardware and software developers. Contact us to learn more about the Microsoft TrueType Font Rasterizer.
