3-Heights™ Image to PDF Converter – an Image Converter that stands out

There is virtually no other kind of tool on the market with such a broad range of products than for the conversion of images to PDF. Nevertheless, the 3-Heights™ Image to PDF component distinguishes itself clearly from other tools. The devil is in the details. As an example, all known image formats must be supported flawlessly (including the infamous JPEGs embedded in TIFF), color spaces must be transferred by embedding profiles, metadata needs to be converted to the XMP format and embedded as well, image data streams are to be validated, corrected and recompressed and the list goes on.
Amongst all these features, PDF/A-1 and PDF/A-2 compliant creation of output files, the fast web view and the setting of page margins are almost taken for granted.
Not ordinary, however, is the conversion of JPM files with MCR contents (mixed raster content) to PDF/A-2 compliant files with OCR text-recognition at the same time.

Success Story

Setting the Mark Printing with the Printcom OMRmarker and PDF Tools!

The OMRmarker from Printcom Ltd is a software solution for controlling enveloping systems. By identifying PDF documents based on text elements, it is possible to collect and sort the documents and reproduce them on different printing systems. In order to further enhance their solution, Printcom Ltd required a high-performance library that could send PDF documents indelibly to different printers.
