callas software releases new product: pdfChip
High-speed and high-quality HTML to PDF converter
Based on easy-to-use, common technology
Focus on speed and PDF quality
pdfChip is recommended when businesses need both flexible and automated PDF creation. Example cases include content-rich transactional printing, book and catalog creation, web-to-print applications or imposition, further explains Dietrich von Seggern.
To meet this goal a lot of focus was put on the speed of conversion of the HTML template to PDF. And during conversion a lot of optimization happens while writing out the resulting PDF document to ensure the most robust and reliable PDF possible. Obviously the experience callas has built in both the professional publishing and the archival markets played a crucial role in this.
Because of the wide variety of workflows in which pdfChip can be integrated, a number of different flavors of the product have been created. The following is an overview of the different flavors and their limitations.
