4.0 (See all)

“Create PDF Server” is a highly automated server-based PDF creation solution. Mac, Windows and UNIX clients can print to a Create PDF printer queue with custom PDF settings that automatically creates PDF documents of any PostScript print job. This solution is able to automatically utilize multiple servers for PDF creation, and scales from a few users to hundreds of users.

Benefits
- Server-based automatic PDF creation from any UNIX, Mac, or Windows client by printing to a HELIOS “Create PDF” print queue
- Create PDF Server works without any local configuration of the Mac / Windows server, the Distiller settings are attached to the HELIOS printer queue
- PDF creation requires a lot of computing which will be off-loaded from the HELIOS server to a dedicated server, e.g. a Mac with a FastEthernet connection
- On-the-fly PostScript distilling on the dedicated server (no temporary PostScript files)
- There is only the spooled job stored on the HELIOS server. Font or OPI resolving is done on-the-fly and does not use additional disk space on the HELIOS server
- Error Messages will be saved to the HELIOS printer accounting log file and sent back to the user by e-mail
- The created PDF document will be attached to the hold queue
- The created PDF document can be saved to any HELIOS volume, or into a subfolder which can be created for each user name
- Job distribution to the next available Create PDF Server – HELIOS supports balance queues which allow a cluster of “dedicated” servers which are used to distill many print jobs in parallel
- Distiller security settings can be specified individually for each queue with HELIOS Admin
- No shared folder / volume needed; Create PDF Server behaves like a network printer
- Job-pipelining via multiple queues allows the creation of PDF files with different settings, e.g. one input job produces web-, press- and archive-optimized PDF files
- Create PDF Server fail safety; when multiple “Create PDF Servers” are used, automatic load balancing (cluster) ensures availability in case one server node should fail
