PDF Tools AG and PDF/A:
PDF Tools AG is a pioneer in offering PDF/A compliant tools for the creation, validation and display of PDF/A documents in accordance with the ISO Standard 19005-1, 19005-2 and 19005-3. Members of our staff represent Switzerland in the ISO Committee responsible for document management and PDF/A (ISO/TC 171). This means that PDF Tools AG is not only strongly involved in the development of PDF/A format standards by contributing with our expertise, but we also apply the PDF/A standard status quo in our products.

The 3-Heights™ Document Converter converts MS Office documents, E-Mails including attachments, scans, images, existing PDF files and even websites to PDF/A. Also digital signatures can be applied and OCR function is also available. The 3-Heights™ PDF Producer generates PDF and PDF/A compliant documents from virtually any Windows application whereas the 3-Heights™ Viewer is a fully PDF/A-compliant viewer. The 3-Heights™ Image to PDF Converter serves to convert TIFF documents or other scanned image formats into PDF/A compliant documents. Furthermore, the 3-Heights™ PDF Validator can determine if a PDF document or an entire PDF archive is PDF/A compliant.

PDF Tools AG and PDF/VT:
Printing, packing and franking transaction documents, whether they are essential business documents like delivery notices, invoices and payment reminders or direct marketing letters sent out in sheer endless numbers, is without question a billion dollar market. The high numbers of print jobs and the requirements for short through-put times have not only led to the development of corresponding hardware like high-performance printers. Applications like Variable Data Printing (VDP) have been created in order to significantly cut the cost per printed item. These facts, and the huge demand for a universal and standardized VDP solution, have led to the development of PDF/VT. Promises that were previously projected by VDP visionaries should now be fulfilled with PDF/VT.

The white paper „PDF/VT – The ISO Standard for Variable Data Printing (VDP) Applications“ provides an introduction to the new standard, which is predicted to play an important role in the future. The white paper informs about the current status, the capabilities and benefits of PDF/VT as well the risks and gives a an outlook on the future development.
