PDFCompressor-CS-FM – Hotfolder / Folder Monitoring for the PDFCompressor CS PDF Compressor Service

PDFCompressor-CS-FM is a free add-on application for the PDFCompressor-CS PDF compression service to monitor one or more input folders and to optimize and compress all existing or newly added PDF files and to generate as compact PDF files as possible. These are stored in defined output folders.

The functions fully correspond to the PDFCompressor-FM application, but the processing is not “local” but “remote” via HTTPS via the SOAP web service interface.

PDFCompressor-Service – MS-Windows service with REST / SOAP web interface – optimizes and compresses PDF’s

The PDFCompressor Service, installed as a MS-Windows service, offers a REST / SOAP web service interface and makes it possible to compress PDF files via the server service in order to generate as compact PDF files as possible. The processing is based on our C#/ .NET PDFCompressor component.

Together with the main application, C# sample projects for SOAP and REST including source code and executable applications are installed. With the help of these examples, all PDF compression and optimization functions provided by the PDFCompressor service can be testet and quickly integrated into your own applications.

Functions PDFCompressor Service:

  • MS-Windows service
  • REST and SOAP – Web-Service interface, compatible with all our other web service applications such as: FileConverterPro (FCpro) or AutoOCR.
  • Multithreading / parallel processing ensures high processing throughput
  • Processing profiles (as XML) to manage the compression settings (New, Copy, Rename, Delete, Import, Export – Single, All)
  • Compresses existing PDF files by a multiple depending on the initial situation and settings.
  • Removes – unused pages, unused names, invalid bookmarks, invalid links, etc.
  • ZIP compression of all PDF resources.
  • Optimizing the color depth of images.
  • Change Image Compression – Color, Grayscale, Black & White – LZW, RLE, JPEG, ZIP, JPEG-2000, TIFF Gr.4, JBIG-2.
  • Reduce pictures – Converting of images to new target resolution is separately configurable for color, grayscale, black & white.
  • Many setting options for JPEG, JPEG-2000, JBIG-2 compression
  • Lossless and lossy compression on JPEG-2000 and JBIG-2 configurable

  • Removed – unused pages, unused names, invalid bookmarks, invalid links, etc.
  • ZIP compression of all PDF resources.
  • Optimizing the color depth of images.
  • Image Compression Change – Color, Grayscale, Black & White – LZW, RLE, JPEG, ZIP, JPEG-2000, TIFF Gr.4, JBIG-2.
  • Reduce images – Convert images to new target resolution separately for color, grayscale, black & white configurable.
  • Many setting options for JPEG, JPEG-2000, JBIG-2 compression
  • Lossless and lossy compression on JPEG-2000 and JBIG-2 configurable
  • Logging.

PDFCompressor-FM – Windows Service with Folder Monitoring – Optimize and Compress PDF’s

Based on the PDFCompressor component, PDFCompressor-FM is now available as a Windows service with folder tracking. Inbox folders are monitored and all newly added PDFs are processed and the optimized result is stored in the assigned outbox folder.

Features PDFCompressor-FM:MS-Windows service

  • Several jobs can be created to monitor multiple inbox folders.
  • Multithreading / parallel processing ensures high processing throughput
  • Conversion profiles (as XML) to manage the configuration settings (New, Copy, Rename, Delete, Import, Export (Single, All)
  • Compresses existing PDF files many times depending on the initial situation and settings.
  • Removed – unused pages, unused names, invalid bookmarks, invalid links, etc.
  • ZIP compression of all PDF resources.
  • Optimizing the color depth of images.
  • Image Compression Change – Color, Grayscale, Black & White – LZW, RLE, JPEG, ZIP, JPEG-2000, TIFF Gr.4, JBIG-2.
  • Reduce images – Convert images to new target resolution separately for color, grascale, black & white configurable.
  • Many setting options for JPEG, JPEG-2000, JBIG-2 compression
  • Lossless and lossy compression on JPEG-2000 and JBIG-2 configurable
  • Only the start folder or the whole subfolder structure can be processed.
  • Folder contents can be deleted after processing or the folder structure can be preserved.
  • Folder structure from the inbox folder can also be copied to the destination folder.
  • File processing via Filter – Name, Extension, Created by / until, Modified from / to.
  • Sorted processing by name / date and ascending / descending possible.
  • Creation of a new file name via variable (date, time, counter, origin name / extension)
  • Delete the original file (move), copy or create an archive copy
  • Folder monitoring and processing start via file system events – immediately, or with an adjustable delay (0-999sec.), Or via time interval (in min.)
  • Start processing at a set date / time with optional daily / weekly repetition.
  • Adjustable number of retry attempts / time interval if a file should be blocked.
  • Logging (All events, only the error events)

PDFCompressor – compresses PDF files unbelievable – less is not possible anymore ….

PDF is a document format that can contain a wide variety of elements – text, fonts, images, etc. During the creation and processing of PDF files, it can happen that the generated PDFs contain unnecessary elements or elements exist multiple times.

PDF offers some significant advantages over the previously used image formats TIFF and JPEG and is therefore increasingly being used in the business sector as a standard data format for images and document scans.

Especially in this area of application errors can already occur during the creation, whereby PDF files are generated, which are often much too large, if eg. too high a scan resolution or not the most suitable compression was configured. Also, it may be that first a higher resolution for z.b. OCR processing is required, but after the OCR processing for archiving, distribution or presentation on the screen a lower resolution and thus smaller file size would be sufficient.

It may make sense to unify all PDF files in the company in terms of compression and resolution in order to obtain a uniform standard for all received, processed and archived PDF documents, regardless of where the PDF files came from.

One of the main features of the PDFCompressor component, in addition to the reduction of the resolution, is that PDFs can be created with the latest and best compression methods – JPEG-2000 and JBIG-2 which are not supported by most PDF applications.

Features PDFCompressor:

  • Compresses existing PDF files many times depending on the initial situation and settings.
  • All settings can be managed via profiles (XML files) – Profile: New, Copy, Change Name, Delete, Export, Import
  • Parallel processing with configurable number of processes.
  • Removed – unused pages, unused names, invalid bookmarks, invalid links, etc.
  • ZIP compression of all PDF resources.
  • Optimizing the color depth of images.
  • Image Compression Change – Color, Grayscale, Black & White – LZW, RLE, JPEG, ZIP, JPEG-2000, TIFF Gr.4, JBIG-2.
  • Reduce images – Convert images to new target resolution separately for color, grayscale, black & white configurable.
  • Many setting options for JPEG, JPEG-2000, JBIG-2 compression
  • Lossless and lossy compression on JPEG-2000 and JBIG-2 configurable

           

The PDFCompressor will be available in the product variants – as FM Folder Monitoring, CL Command Line, Web Service and as an eDocPrintPro Plugin. Likewise, the PDFCompressor will soon be integrated into our products AutoOCR, FileConverterPro, PDFmdx as well as iPaper Client or Server.
