JetPCL® Service Provider : detail

JetPCL Service Provider is high quality HP (Hewlett Packard) PCL (Printer Control Language) emulation software that converts PCL files into image files for service applications, such as Fax services, Document Delivery services, Document Archiving services and Web based service products. JetPCL Service Provider is licensed specifically to companies supplying services to other companies.

JetPCL works with your service application by enabling it to support any client applications that can print to an HP LaserJet printer. JetPCL allows your service product to convert PCL data into electronic document images. With JetPCL, your product can interface with your clients many standard and legacy document applications using their common ability to produce HP LaserJet PCL data. JetPCL Service Provider emulates a PCL printer to produce an image file that looks exactly like what would have been printed on paper. JetPCL can render into a variety of output image formats including PDF (the Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format), standard TIFF Class-F, Windows BMP, DCX, PCX and other related formats.

JetPCL Service Provider is commonly used by "business-to-business" service providers to develop high quality fax and email document delivery solutions. They use JetPCL Service Provider to generate an image file from PCL data that is then either faxed, emailed, previewed, provided to clients through a browser based interface, or archived in a document image database along with indexing information.

By utilizing the JetPCL command line or DLL interface, software engineers can easily incorporate the robust functionality of JetPCL into their C, C++, C#, Visual Basic, Delphi, Java, .NET or Perl code base. Sample code is available to get your engineers up to speed quickly.

Do you need to support your customers legacy systems in order to handle all of their service needs? JetPCL Service Provider is especially valuable in supporting legacy applications and non-Windows client systems. JetPCL Service Provider is integrated into the service application, enabling the client application to produce electronic document images from the legacy PCL output. The PCL output stream may be generated by any application that can print to a HP LaserJet printer.

Special features of JetPCL Service Provider not found in some converters:

  • Extract text from the PCL file while also imaging it for import into a document archiving or indexed database system.
  • Support for non-western languages, such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Hebrew, Arabic, Greek and Cyrillic.
  • Generate specific types of PDF documents for different needs (for example image based or native font based PDF files).
  • Merge an image, such as a company logo or signature anywhere on the page.
  • Merge images, such as barcodes, into a PCL data stream before printing or additional JetPCL processing.
  • Allow the user to embed fax or document routing information within the PCL data stream for use after JetPCL conversion.
  • Merge specific page images with JetPCL output pages, like printing on pre-printed forms.
  • Merge entire document images to produce complex final document images.
  • Adjust the JetPCL output image with shifting and clipping options.
  • Convert image files into PCL data for integration with other PCL documents.
  • Transform one image format into another for archiving (JetPCL will accept many image file types as input).
