callas software to publicly show all-new pdfChip at CeBIT

05 Feb. 2015


New powerful technology turns HTML into high-quality PDFs

Berlin / Hanover. callas software will present its brand new pdfChip product for the first time at CeBIT in Hanover from the 16th to the 20th of March 2015 (Hall 3, Stand B17). pdfChip allows businesses to dynamically format content for distribution through any channel they require.

callas pdfChip is a powerful PDF creation technology which uses HTML as its input format. It extends the use of HTML, CSS and JavaScript to create high-quality, true-color, high-performance and printable PDF documents. Unlike other applications using XSL-FO (Extensible Stylesheet Language – Formatting Objects) pdfChip, through its use of the widespread HTML, requires no specialist or technical know-how. This approach is particularly advantageous for both printing and online publishing applications.

With an increasing amount of content stored in web-based content management systems, pdfChip will prove to be particularly valuable to businesses needing to provide up-to-date information to customers through their own preferred channels. The product compensates for limitations of the HTML format and provides features to define page breaks and page numbers, to use the printing color space, and more. pdfChip can also be used to dynamically combine multiple native PDF files on one or more pages, instead of inserting them as images in the print data stream. A database connection or targeted use of PDF metadata can also be used for personalized document creation and printing.

“pdfChip is recommended when businesses need both flexible and automated PDF creation. Example cases include content-rich transactional printing, book and catalog creation, web-to-print applications or imposition”, explains Dietrich von Seggern, Business Development Manager at callas software.

Through callas’ longstanding experience in PDF processing and quality management, high quality and total support for all print-relevant PDF settings come as a given. For pdfChip the callas development team has also paid particular attention to low file sizes and high performance during PDF creation.
