Handling PDF files is still more difficult and less automated than we all hoped it would be by now.

MediaCheck compares the content of PDF files regardless, whether the content of one is a raster image and the other contains vector data. It does artwork inspection not only for similar files but can also compare single up files against a sheet with a large number of (different) ups. It gives the printer the security that the content of the customer file is correctly retained in the file to be used for printing.

That is more than a conventional pre-flight check can do. Where pre-flight is concerned with the question whether the PDF file is suited for printing, MediaCheck can tell you whether the PDF file has the content that the customer wants printed.
