We've prepared a new case study for you: Archive for Patient Records - Conversion and storage according PDF/A-ISO standard. The European hospital center CHUV searched for a possibilitiy to convert all documents automatically according to ISO standard. 8000 employees from 92 nations care for more than 41,000 patients yearly. In this connection around 4,000 files must be handled with different formats like docx, html, rtl, and TIFF. With a conversion workflow and the DPF technology from SEAL Systems this challenge was solved without any problems.
At the PDF Days you will see not only English and German presentations, reports, lectures from users as well as workshops around PDF & Co. but also a presentation of our expert Dr. Uwe Wächter about the conversion of embedded files in PDF/A-2 without any manual intermediate steps.
Adobe LiveCycle servers are a family of server products catered to the various demands of business processes with heavy document use. Among other things, they automate the diverse PDF functions which Adobe desktop products are known for. Adobe has recently notified its customers and partners that this LiveCycle ES platform will now be replaced by the new platform Adobe Experience Manager (AEM). In this blog post we explain the consequences of this replacement.
Most conventional tools for creating PDF/A-2 can only create single PDF/A files. The newest version of PDF Longlife Suite from SEAL Systems can also convert nested or embedded files, such as e-mails with attachments or Excel sheets embedded in Word documents, into PDF/A-2. Here the use of the PDF/A-2’s property itself is essential for it to be a container for other PDF/A files.
Many of our customer projects require the automatic recognition and processing of documents. Bar code information is collected directly from TIFF or PDF files, which enable an intelligent assignment to SAP objects, for example. We already use bar code scanning and processing in many projects. Until recently, we’ve had only project-specific solutions for this, but now there is a standard product for these tasks.
A good CAD drawing has everything you need for the transferal of information. Apart from geometry and geometric dimensioning, one finds a multitude of textual information, like tolerance specifications without reference to geometry, manufacturing instructions, BOMs, modification history, standard parts measures in various values, references to additional documents necessary for production… and a lot more. This is how it is in many manufacturing companies. Guideline 4953, “Simplified Drawing” creates drawings which are easier to maintain.
Our customers often ask us, “Which should I be making – PDF/A-1 or 2?” Today we’re going to discuss this question.
The ISO standard PDF/A-1 was published in 2005. The goal was the targeted restriction of the PDF’s scope of function, in order to make standard-conforming files archivable long-term. PDF was still defined over an Adobe reference at the time. With PDF/A, no new PDF reference could be created. Instead, recommendations were marked as obligatory and ambiguities from limitations clarified, e.g. transparent objects were forbidden.
PDF is the central data format when dealing with digital documents. However in operational practice not all possibilities of PDF files are offered, supported, or used (sometimes for a long time), because of lack of awareness, among other things. Especially the fact that PDF files can contain other files is a characteristic that could be interesting for many companies. Since Adobe Acrobat X exists the usage of such imbedded files is even pushed by Adobe.
SEAL Systems offers solutions for digital rights management (eDRM) for a complete know-how protection for your documents. The company emphasizes a focus on the seamless integration of rights management in the entire PLM, DVS and ECM environment of the SAP user. The target group for the fully integrated DRM Systems is companies in all industries whose consistent protection of their documents is critical to their business
Seamless protection of all documents – from storage to recipient – was why GEA Westfalia Separator Group GmbH, a systems provider for the food processing industry, decided on the use of an Enterprise Digital Rights Management system (eDRM). Seal Systems AG was commissioned with providing all necessary software modules, as well as the system and process integration. Today’s blog entry discusses how this was done.
