Research and Development

Font Technology

UBA's font team researches font technologies and develops font tools. We're doing continuous research and study on today's industry standard font formats for desktop like OpenType (Postscript and TrueType flavor) and TrueType. In addition, we have experience in converting thousands of fonts, using font conversion tools, into standard web font formats like Embedded OpenType (eot), MicroType Extress (mtx), Web Open Font Format (WOFF and WOFF 2), Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG).

We have done extensive research and development in font subsetting technology. In simplest form, font subsetting is the technology where a bigger font with large number of glyphs is reduced to a font with only necessary glyphs, reducing the font size.

Dynamic Subsetting

Dynamic subsetting is patented technology of Monotype. It collects text and subset font on the fly. Without serving full font, it will subset font such that the font file will contain glyph information of requested characters. Typical Chinese fonts include over 13,000 characters at 8MB. With dynamic subsetting that same file is reduced to less than 200KB. It will reduce wait times, improve user experience and saves unnecessary bandwidth. Dynamic subsetting can be used for dynamically branded content, multi-language content, mobile and tablet content and rich media.

Font Compression

We're continually doing research/study on font compression technologies that are used in webfonts, like MicroType Extress (mtx), Web Open Font Format 2 (WOFF 2) etc, which are vital for delivering webfonts more faster and securely. We work hard and compare different font compression technologies used in webfonts to ensure that user get best webfonts in each platforms.

Fixing Font Data

If you have ever worked with web fonts then this is not a new topic for you. Ever since the introduction of web fonts in the modern browsers across multiple platforms, user has now access to huge number of fonts that were limited to few limited users only. But transforming from desktop font to web font could be sometimes tricky as each browsers has is own font validators. Font that is working in one browser might not render in another browser at all. Like a web font rendering perfectly in Chrome in Windows might not render in mobile Safari in iPhone.
