Monotype Imaging to Showcase Scalable Fonts and Font Technologies for a Wide Range of Consumer Electronics Devices and Development Environments at IBC 2009.

Solutions to Highlight the Power of Type to Enhance Connected, Interactive, Multimedia User Experiences

AMSTERDAM -- Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, will showcase scalable font solutions for manufacturers and developers of consumer electronics devices at IBC 2009 in Amsterdam, Sept. 11-15, 2009, stand 4.C53. Highlights will include solutions that offer high-quality text display for digital televisions, set-top boxes, mobile phones, navigation devices, digital cameras and devices such as wireless digital photo frames. Monotype Imaging will also demonstrate the integration of its scalable text rendering capabilities with OpenVG([R])-compliant graphics acceleration technology from TAKUMI Corp. of Tokyo.

"We believe our solutions align nicely with IBC's commitment to stage the world's best event for professionals involved in content creation, management and delivery," said John Seguin, executive vice president of Monotype Imaging. "The ability to harness content so that it displays consistently, legibly and with brand integrity across devices presents a difficult challenge to OEMs and developers - a challenge we're focused on. We look forward to showcasing what we're doing to serve today's connected lifestyle, as well as provide an example through our work with TAKUMI on what we see in the future using hardware accelerated technology."

Monotype Imaging fonts and font technologies for consumer electronics devices

Monotype Imaging offers fonts and font technologies designed to provide high-quality text display, scalability, typographic style, legibility and multiple language support within a small memory footprint. Solutions are engineered for flexible integration within a wide range of platforms, from device-specific development environments to open source alternatives. Solutions may also be tailored to meet unique device requirements.

Monotype Imaging's iType([R]) scalable font engine enables device manufacturers and developers to build products that clearly display text based on outline or stroke font data. In addition to proprietary innovations such as the company's SmartHint([TM]) technology for displaying East Asian text using stroke-based fonts, iType supports TrueType([R]) fonts, the company's CATT([TM]) (Compact Asian for TrueType Technology) fonts, stroke fonts, bitmaps, embedded bitmaps, font subsets, custom fonts and linked fonts. iType also supports the company's Edge([TM]) Technology and Edge-enhanced fonts, a solution designed to enable the display of superior quality, typographically rich East Asian text within memory-constrained devices. The iType font engine may be combined with Monotype Imaging's WorldType([R]) Layout Engine, a modular software library that enables the composition, positioning and rendering of multilingual text, including complex scripts such as Arabic, Hebrew and Indic writing systems.

OEM-ready font packages are available to comply with industry specifications, such as the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's requirements for television closed captioning display, and Japan's Association of Radio Industries and Businesses data coding and transmission specification for digital broadcasting. Fonts are also available that are designed specifically to display legibly on a wide variety of screens, regardless of screen resolution.
