Earlier this year, callas software released the 6th generation of its preflight champion pdfToolbox. This new version includes powerful new features such as process plans to build logic into preflight profiles, automatic load-balancing between systems and remote configuration and monitoring of pdfToolbox Servers across the network. For years, reseller 3f8h.net / electronic publishing is callas software gold partner and knows the software like the back of his hand.

callas pdfaPilot is the professional solution to validate and/or create PDF/A-files for businesses and government agencies of all types, as well as archives and libraries, that store and maintain documents long-term. pdfaPilot flawlessly turns interactive forms, invoices, technical documentation, books and any other PDF or Office files you can think of into robust, standards-compliant PDF/A documents; checking files against the standard and fixing them if they don't comply. In October callas software will release the new version of pdfaPilot that will feauture a new PDF to ePub converter. This new conversion feature will use "tags" in PDF files and the quality of the results depends on the quality of these - usually invisible - tags. The new version will also have a convenient and fast "Tag-Viewer" with which the tagging structure can easily be checked. Tags are not only important for ePub and Publishing but are also an important precondition for accessibility. pdfaPilot 4 brings full support for the soon to be released PDF/A-3 standard, making it possible to archive the original document (such as Word, Excel, XML…) inside the PDF/A file. Integration with Microsoft SharePoint facilitates the creation of PDF/A files in larger office environments. For high-volume environments, pdfaPilot Server can now be installed as a Windows service and load balancing between different pdfaPilot Servers instantly enables unlimited processing power.
