San Diego, California - PageTech, a global leader in HP PCL print stream transformation, optimization, and text extraction, today announced aggressive new pricing on its soon to be released PCLTool SDK for Linux, its flagship PCL conversion software developer’s kit.
PageTech developed this new Linux version because they were the only vendor HP could find capable of converting the complex PCL5e generated by the State of California’s CalWIN system into text searchable PDF files. The CalWIN system required support for PDF documents generated in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Cambodian, Thai, Farsi and other languages.
“Having been absent from the Linux market until now, we decided to provide an aggressive and simple licensing model to encourage customers using other solutions to re-evaluate their current PCL to PDF conversion solution. Not only are we offering excellent pricing for unlimited users and unlimited page volume, we have also ported our powerful PCLXForm program to Linux with its own unparalleled script programming language that can simultaneously extract text from complex PCL while converting, splitting, indexing, and routing the print stream,” said Robert Pooley, President of PageTech.
PCLTool SDK for Linux options range in price from $1,895 for a command line-driven PCL2PDF solution to $3,995 for a 3-unit suite of PCLXForm for mission critical application development. All Linux options include a free copy of PCLTool SDK for Windows for easy print stream analysis, script programming development and testing.
A fully functional evaluation copy of PCLTool SDK for Linux will be available for download from the PCLTools.com website in late January of 2015.
