AFP conversion tools allows for many different formats (e.g. AFP to PDF, AFP to Image, and AFP to XML). These tools are written in Java and designed for high performance with multi-threading capability, large file management, and supports customization to meet each company’s needs.

The tools process AFP documents by converting it to an XML format, allowing for modification, data extraction, resource management, and convert to several different formats (PDF, AFP, JPEG, GIFF, etc.)

Benefits of AFP Conversion Tools

Speed – Designed for enterprise environments where companies need to process large AFP files to meet on-demand conversion.

Customization – A wide variety of customization options are available. Conversion tools come in two different formats: a desktop utility with a graphical user interface and server based utility with command line and Java API.

Output options – The options for output file options are PDF, XML, several image file formats, and back into AFP (great for converting/modifying print stream data without having to change the source).

AFP to PDF output provides a variety of options. These include encryption, PDF output formats (1.3-1.6), individually indexed statements or a single batch file. To increase performance, Type 1/TrueType fonts can be substituted with the original AFP RASTER fonts to provide higher quality, scalability document, all while reducing the size by up to 50% in many cases.

AFP to AFP is an excellent way to take a source AFP file, modify it and then convert it back to AFP without having to modify the original output. This is great for companies that want to add a page or barcode, modify or augment data, or capture data.

AFP to Image provides conversion to JPG, GIF, TIFF, RAW, BMP, or PNG.

Quality – Convert with first-class fidelity so the output file matches the original.

Modifications – Print stream data can be modified to add pages, add barcodes, split out individual indexed files, or augment/obfuscate/extract data.  Utilization external resource files can reduce the the original data stream file size.
