PDF Converter API and Server Platform 6.0 – Cross conversion between file formats

Posted at: 18:19 on 15 June 2012 by Muhimbi

PDFConverterServicesBox4_thumb3Earlier today we released version 6.0 of the PDF Converter for SharePoint, which ships with an improved version of our popular PDF Conversion engine. As always we are  also releasing an update to the standalone version of the Muhimbi PDF Converter API and Server Platform, which includes all new functionality and fixes including the new ability to cross-convert file types (xls to xlsx, docx to doc, xls to doc etc) and even InfoPath to Word, Excel, HTML and PDF.

A quick introduction for those not familiar with the product: The Muhimbi PDF Converter API and Server Platform is an ‘on premises’ server based SDK that allows software developers to convert typical Office files to PDF format using a robust, scalable but friendly Web Services interface from Java and .NET based solutions. It supports a large number of file types including MS-Office and ODF file formats as well as HTML, MSG (email) AutoCAD and Image based files and is used by some of the largest organisations in the world for mission critical document conversions. In addition to converting documents the product ships with a sophisticated watermarking engine, PDF Splitting and Merging facilities and the ability to secure PDF files. A separate SharePoint specific version is available as well.
