The PDF Association is proud to present the first PDF 2.0 example files made available to the public. Created and donated to the PDF Association by Datalogics, this initial set of PDF 2.0 examples were crafted by hand and intentionally made simple in construction to serve as teaching tools for learning PDF file structure and syntax.
The PDF 2.0 interop workshops included many vendors with products for creating, editing and processing PDF files. They came together in Boston, Massachusetts for a couple of days to test their own software against 3rd party files.
Welcome to the homepage of the PDF Association Competence Centers, a broad collaboration between world-leading companies and experts in PDF technology. The PDF Association began with the PDF/A Competence Center in 2006.
The aim of the Competence Centers is to promote the exchange of information and experience with PDF Standards, with each Competence Center providing focus on a specific PDF International Standard. At present there are 4 Competence Centers:
Focused on ISO 32000, the PDF Competence Center is a starting-point for new PDF developers and for those looking for detailed information on implementing with PDF technology.
Focused on ISO 19005, the PDF/A Competence Center discusses PDF technology in the context of electronic document archiving.
Focused on ISO 24517, the PDF/E Competence Center addresses PDF and 3D PDF technology in architectural / engineering / construction (AEC) and product lifecycle management (PLM) workflows.
ISO 14289 is a completely new standard, expected for publication in early 2012. The PDF/UA Competence Center provides a platform for implementers of accessible PDF.
Focused on ISO 16612, PDF/VT addresses needs specific to variable and transactional printers. With both a technical and marketing working group, the PDF/VT Competence Center is a starting-point for those interested in shaping the impact of PDF/VT in the printing and output management industry.
