iType®

High quality text to your screens, in many of world's most spoken languages.

Putting text on screen is a demanding business. It’s all about converting individual characters into pixels, preserving their legibility so that text remains easy to read — and delivering them in a matter of milliseconds.

Get started

The iType font engine is a flexible font rendering solution optimized for efficiency and speed that renders characters on screen with absolute clarity. Embedded in products, the iType font engine is a piece of software that requires only minimal space and is easily integrated, so it doesn’t slow anything else down, even in the smallest, most memory-constrained devices.
