FONTstack is a font engine based on the FreeType Project. Along with the font engine itself, BitRouter also provides vector based fonts in several packages. The most popular one includes a complete set of TrueType fonts for DTV closed captioning. These fonts include all the font sets mandated by the FCC for EIA-708-B based closed captioning. FONTstack also includes a font API library which implements edge effects required for closed captioning. FONTstack can be licensed with full source code to the engine and APIs.
In addition to TrueType fonts for closed captioning BitRouter can provide TrueType fonts for GUIs, tru2way™ and fonts for all international character sets such as:
- East Asian CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean)
- Middle Eastern (Arabic & Hebrew)
- Picture and Symbol font sets
- South Asian (Devanagari, Bengali, Gurmukhi, Gujarati, Oriya, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam)
- Southeast Asian (Thai & Lao)
- WGL Pan European
We can also work with you to create custom font sets and symbols.
