"As a company focused on creating navigation and communication devices that enrich customers' lives, Garmin is able to realize key benefits that are passed on to consumers through our font scaling technology," said John Seguin, executive vice president of Monotype Imaging. "We've tailored our iType font engine to enable memory-constrained, consumer electronics devices to display clear, aesthetically pleasing text that can be scaled to any size.
Other key iType capabilities include fast rendering speed, small code size, and the ability to apply special effects, such as displaying text outlined in different colors. This enables text to stand out from detailed or colorful backgrounds, such as maps. As devices become more interactive throughout the world, we believe that fonts will take on an even more important role."
Monotype Imaging 2007 revenue was $105.2 million and net income was $9.1 million.
