Licensed per server, activePDF Server
helps companies reduce per-user software and support costs
by offering centralized PDF generation and development functionalities.
activePDF Server enables you to quickly and easily add PDF
conversion to your business applications- literally, anything
that can be printed to a printer can be converted to PDF using
Automated PDF Conversion
Using COM or .NET, you can easily configure the native application
to script the activePDF Server component and select the dynamically
created activePDF virtual printer. Don't worry if your application
cannot select printers on the fly - simply call the SetPrinterAsDefault
method and immediately start printing to PDF. By setting a
few properties once, you can easily concatenate multiple jobs
together, incorporate security features, or perform PDF linearization
on a single document or an entire series of documents. Converting
PostScript files or over 40 different image file formats to
PDF is as easy as a single method call.
Licensed per server, activePDF Server is a cost-effective
way to provide PDF output from any business application to
your entire organization. Server's unique multithreaded feature
allows users to process PDF conversions simultaneously without
having to wait in a queue for their PDF output. Specifically
engineered to handle high-volume PDF generation, activePDF
Server is the only PDF conversion tool designed from the ground-up
with server-side operation in mind. With tuning parameters
for both single and multiprocessor machines, you can easily
harness the power of large multi-CPU machines without paying
activePDF Server's COM interface is callable from any COM-enabled
environment, including Visual Basic, Visual FoxPro, ASP, .NET,
Delphi and more. Server includes a Configuration Manager module,
allowing you to quickly and easily build customized PDF configurations
that you can then call from within your application.
Seamless to End Users
Capable of redirecting print-to-PDF output from virtually
any Windows® based application, activePDF eliminates the
need for end-user intervention in the PDF conversion process.
Server-side conversion takes the guesswork out of generating
customized PDF output - end users are no longer troubled with
confusing PDF settings. Instead, with activePDF Server's properties
and methods you take full control of your PDF output on a
Precise Control over PDF Output
With activePDF Server, you gain full control over your PDF
output. Conversion options allow you to specify page size,
compression and resolution options, embed text, create bookmarks,
concatenate to existing files, and more! Plus, activePDF Server
includes a PDFMark interpreter, allowing you to create feature-rich
PDFs from any application capable of generating PDFMark.
Server supports 40 and 128-bit encryption, enabling you to
fully secure your mission-critical documents. Security options
include password-protection, allowing you to disable printing,
prevent copying of text and graphics, and more. Additionally,
Server's unique Fingerprint technology allows you to guarantee
document integrity. Simply apply a digital fingerprint when
the PDF is converted, and you can easily check at any point
in your workflow to make sure the document's content is intact.
Also known as web optimization, linearization is the process
of preparing a large PDF document for byte-serving over the
web. Byte-serving allows an individual page to be loaded instantly
while remaining pages are loaded silently in the background,
instead of forcing the user to wait while the entire document
streams to the browser before viewing its contents.
