Vector representation – from professionals for professionals

The essential feature of PVG.lib as a professional application is primarily the standard of quality without compromise that it offers. PVG.lib features a very high speed but is still very precise. The high-level of precision of the application implemented in C++ is due to its own rendering engine. The double floating-point precision during calculation and 16 bit anti-aliasing generates extremely brilliant rendering. Representation is not just simply a matter of representation.

The results can be viewed not just close up, but also at unlimited resolution as PVG.lib operates without any predefined zoom stages and represents vector graphics even at extreme magnification without pixels or dithering.

Not only is the quality of the representation impressive, the variety of features is too. Using the measurement tool, the distances within the graphics can be measured between freely selected points. The representation is also supported by 256 bit anti-aliasing, whereby a crystal-clear image is the result.

Convert vector graphics with maximum input and output flexibility

Compared to other applications, PVG.lib offers a comprehensive palette of formats in the area of print and plot exports. PVG.lib can be run under Windows XP and Windows Vista, and it provides optimum compatibility between graphic vector formats, as a central instance with your image processing.

Impressive but surprisingly small

Even though PVG.lib provides so many functions and formats, the memory requirement of the application is very small at just about 5 MB. This was achieved by very lean programming in C++, which avoids unnecessary ballast. The application is optimised for 64 bit systems and can be integrated into the system without any problems via dll or lib. However, the range of functions and the variety of formats that can be processed is unique in this combination.

Open end with possibilities

PVG.lib does not just serve for representation, conversion or output of vector files. The modules of the PVG toolbox provide a whole range of functions. These also include tools, which deal directly with the graphics themselves, but also others, which support data management and assist in extensive automation of processes (keyword: batch-processing). If graphic files play an important role in your workflow, then you should consider the Precision Vector Graphics Library. Maybe it is the optimum solution for your workflow.
