Interesting analyses and conversions of PDF for Print Production in the Cloud
PDFX-ready in Switzerland has annonced the immediate availability of the PDFX-ready Online Tools. This is a new innovative service for the members of PDFX-ready and also (in a limited version) for non-members.
The PDFX-ready Online Tools allow performing interesting analyses and conversion on a server in the cloud with the help of a free PDFX-ready Connector. PDF Preflight checks the PDFs with the well-known preflight profiles of PDFX-ready and a comprehensive report is created. Color Preflight can determine the original color spaces of CMYK images in a PDF. The ISO<–>PSO Converter converts PDF files from FOGRA39 (ISO Coated V2) to FOGRA51 (PSO Coated V3) and vice versa. The results are sent via e-mail with a download link.
For uploading the PDF files and for filling in the job tickets a PDFX-ready Connector is required. The application is available in a FREEWARE version for everybody and PREMIUM versions for members of PDFX-ready. The PDFX-ready Connectors have been created with Enfocus Connect Send.
The PDFX-ready Online Tools are installed on a cloud server of Impressed. There Enfocus Switch is managing the processing of the uploaded PDF files. According to the entries of the job ticket the files are distributed to the Callas pdfToolbox Server for PDF Preflights and the ISO<–>PSO conversion or to the ColorLogic DocBees ProfileTagger for performing the Color Preflight. For transfering the results the internet service TeamBeam Pro is used.
The PDFX-ready Online Tools are generously supported by Callas Software, ColorLogic, Enfocus Software, Impressed, Calibrate, PDF-AKTUELL.
