PVG.lib masters the PDF/A standard

PDF/A stands for the long time archiving of electronic documents in PDF format compliant to ISO series standards.

The documents must fulfil particular preconditions to be compliant to the PDF/A standard. For example, all document resources must be contained in the PDF file, i.e. there may not be references to resources (such as fonts, images or metadata) that are not in the file. Furthermore, other demands such as the structuring of the document or the use of context-dependent dynamic functions are examined.

PVG.lib now encompasses the complete functionality for the processing of the archive format PDF/A; this includes the PDF/A check and the generation of PDF/A files. This function fulfils another important precondition for the professional application of PVG.lib: Long-term archiving compliant to the ISO certified PDF/A standard

PVG.lib with command line - PVG.conv

Anyone, who up to now was unable to find their “Shell”, can now breathe a sigh of relief.

With PVG.conv, the comprehensive vector graphic toolbox can now be accessed via the command line. Thus technically competent users can access the software using their familiar interface and can in particular optimally use the scripting capability of PVG.lib.

PVG.conv can read all PVG.lib formats and write PDF, PDF/A and raster formats. Furthermore, PVG.conv can print and examine files with regard to their color composition (toner usage).

PVG.convert – the universal graphic converter

A further additional module now available for the Precision Vector Graphics library is the universal graphic converter PVG.convert.

It converts both vector-based formats as well as raster images, where as much of the vector information as possible is retained. The same applies for image data during conversion – the minimum of loss for a maximum of quality. And this is the strong point of PVG.lib and PVG.convert. A brilliant technical representation of images as well as the optimum prerequisites for optimization of your workflow in the graphic data processing field.
