There was standing room only at the lectures on the PDF/A format offered during DMS 2006; the new ISO standard for long-term archiving, PDF/A, was one of the critical topics at this year’s DMS EXPO. The founding members of the PDF/A Competence Center were all present as exhibitors at DMS 2006 and were pleased at the large great number of visiting professionals. Moreover, six companies spontaneously decided to join the PDF/A Competence Center: Actino Software GmbH, atori GmbH, Docucom AG, intarsys consulting GmbH, OPENLiMiT SignCubes AG and PENTADOC AG. Page Technology Marketing Inc. also joined as the first international member. Do you know a company that should be a member?
callas software GmbH, Compart Systemhaus GmbH, LuraTech Europe GmbH, PDF Tools AG (Switzerland) and PDFlib GmbH have founded the PDF/A Competence Center. To handle the high demand for information and exchange experience on all aspects of PDF/A, the PDF/A Competence Center has now been reorganized as an association. This provides interested parties with the combined expertise of leading PDF/A suppliers. Activities of the newly founded association will include conducting seminars, cooperation on further standardization and serving as a competent point of contact for questions regarding all aspects of PDF/A.
