We are happy to announce version 7.1 of our popular Muhimbi PDF Converter API and Server Platform and OCR and PDF/A Archiving API and Server Platform. The main new features are support for OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to convert scanned documents into fully searchable and indexable PDF files, and a completely overhauled converter for the EML (email) format that should really benefit those organisations that don’t use MS-Outlook’s MSG format to store email.
- Improved support for the MSG & EML based formats.
- OCR Facilities provided by Muhimbi’s server based PDF Conversion products
- Carry out OCR using a web service call (.NET)
- Carry out OCR using a web service call (Java)
- Carry out OCR using a SharePoint workflow
A quick introduction for those not familiar with the product: The Muhimbi PDF Converter Services is an ‘on premises’ server based SDK that allows software developers to convert typical Office files to PDF format using a robust, scalable but friendly Web Services interface from Java, .NET, Ruby & PHP based solutions. It supports a large number of file types including MS-Office and ODF file formats as well as HTML, MSG (email), EML, AutoCAD and Image based files and is used by some of the largest organisations in the world for mission critical document conversions. In addition to converting documents the product ships with a sophisticated watermarking engine, PDF Splitting and Merging facilities, an OCR facility and the ability to secure PDF files. A separate SharePoint specific version is available as well.
