Seattle, Washington D.c. (PressExposure) October 26, 2007 -- If your business needs to convert one or two documents over the next month or two, submitting to online PDF conversion services may be fine. On the other end of the scale are large businesses needing to deal with tens of hundreds of conversions every single month. For those businesses, ReaSoft PDF Printer is a good pick.
ReaSoft Development today announces the immediate availability of ReaSoft PDF Printer 3, a virtual PDF printer driver, designed with server-side processing in mind. Once the printer is installed, you can convert from any application that has a printing functionality.
Most any office with more than one computer has some kind of network in use. A network lets your computer share its information and peripherals such as printers and scanners with the other computers in a local area. But sharing a virtual PDF printer has always been a bit more complex. That's one of the primary reasons ReaSoft has come out with an easy-to-use virtual PDF driver that doesn't need to be installed directly on any computer on the network.
ReaSoft PDF Print Server Edition lets admins set up user and group settings to control how users work with the printer. Custom PDF settings, such as security parameters or document processing can be assigned by admins to a group or to an individual user. ReaSoft PDF Printer fully supports Windows Terminal Server and Citrix Metaframe environments.
The end users can convert to PDF simultaneously from multiple computers connected on the network. The output is fully configurable.
In the special dialog, you can set the document title, subject, author, keywords; add hierarchical bookmarks for document pages; apply watermarks, add headers and footers with data, embed fonts; convert links to PDF hyperlinks, protect the output with 40 or 128 bit RC4 encryption, add printing, copying and modification restrictions and set up other options that you would find in other high-end virtual PDF printer.
Some other important features in ReaSoft PDF Printer include easy-to-use profile settings which help you to save and load your own configuration on creation of PDF documents.
In addition to the Server Edition, ReaSoft PDF Printer comes in Lite ($24.95) and Standard Editions ($49.95), which are aimed at home users, rather than businesses.
If you are looking for a virtual PDF printer that can be shared independently or together by every networked computer, or you need a printer for home needs, then ReaSoft PDF Printer is what you need. It'll pay for itself in the first month after the installation.
