ActivePDF Server Component

Licensed per server, activePDF Server, a dynamic PDF generator, helps companies reduce per-user software and support costs by offering centralized PDF generation and PDF conversionfunctionalities. activePDF Server enables users to easily add PDF conversion to existing business applications. 

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 for on the fly PDF generation. 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 to PDF or over 40 different image file formats to PDF is as easy as a single method call. Literally, anything that can be printed to a printer can be converted to PDF using activePDF Server, a robust PDF print driver.

Highly Scalable

Licensed per server, activePDF Server is a cost-effective way to generate PDF and 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 a premium for dynamic PDF creation.

Easily Integrated

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 for dynamic PDF generation.

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 job-by-job basis during the PDF conversion process.

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.

Robust Security for PDF Files

Server supports 40 and 128-bit PDF encryption, enabling you to fully secure your mission-critical PDF documents. Security options include password-protection, allowing you to disable printing of PDFs, prevent copying of text and graphics, and more. Additionally, Server's unique Fingerprint technology allows you to guarantee document integrity of your PDF files. 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 PDF document's content is intact.

PDF Linearization

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 PDF page to be loaded instantly while remaining pages are loaded silently in the background, instead of forcing the user to wait while the entire PDF document streams to the browser before viewing its contents.
