Global Graphics today announced its
Jaws PDF Server, which provides centralized PDF production, storage and distribution. Although Jaws PDF Server itself runs on various Windows server platforms, it’s compatible with Windows, Unix and Mac-based systems.
The Jaws PDF Server system can be configured as a virtual printer to support any native application, according to Global Graphics, and also accepts PostScript, PDF and TIFF files directly.
The server also supports a post processing option which can be used to handle extra actions after each PDF has been created, such as distribution, local or remote printing, Internet and intranet publishing, document management system and archiving entry, and so forth. PDFs created with Jaws PDF Server can also be edited using Adobe Acrobat and other PDF tools.
The Jaws PDF Server itself is comprised of three modules: SmartInput controls the file input path, while Queuer handles the output path. Jaws PDF Creator generates optimized PDF files. Server administrators can configure the server and handle workflow administration from a graphical user interface. The software also has load-balancing capability, so it can distribute the workload to a cluster of workgroup servers.
Global Graphics offers Jaws PDF Server licenses from 50 to an unlimited number of users, either in local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN) settings.
