The 3-Heights™ PDF Optimization component serves the purpose of optimizing PDF documents specifically in preparation for certain applications such as web-based publication, data exchange or printing.
Web-based publication calls for lean files optimized for screen display, whose first page is displayed even before the complete file has been downloaded.
The priorities in the pre-press stage focus on sufficient resolution of images and color quantity optimization.
Areas of Use
Web-based applications demand short response times. Potential customers soon lose interest when online publications and documents are slow to load. Small and linearized PDF documents reduce response times significantly.
Poorly compressed PDF documents make emails unnecessarily large and can slow down communications or prevent the exchange of documents by email altogether. Appropriate optimization in outgoing mail processes can improve communication significantly.
The priorities in the pre-press stage focus on correct reproduction and color quantity reduction during printing. Hence, all colors can be converted to CMYK or grayscale, for instance.
Archiving requirements can vary; for instance, alternative images may be required in one case but not in another. Redundant or unnecessary data should not be archived in either scenario. The 3-Heights™ PDF Optimization component offers selective optimization options to enable precisely these kinds of configuration variations.
Other Areas of Use:
- Web publishing platform
- As an optimization step after assembling documents from a heterogeneous source
- Conversion of colors to standardize corporate color space standards
