PixEdit® - PixView® - PixJet®
The most important file format for scanned documents today is PDF, the Portable Document Format. This format was developed by Adobe and is now an ISO standard. When using PDF for archiving documents, it is essential that the PDF files preserve all the information necessary to reproduce the document exactly as written. For this purpose, the PDF/A standard has been developed, which is a subset of the PDF standard.
When you use the Techsoft products PixEdit®
for scanning, processing and converting your documents to PDF, you can be assured that they are always
stored according to the PDF/A standard.
An other commonly used format for multi-page documents is TIFF, which is also very well supported in the Techsoft products.
Finally, Techsoft has also developed its own file format called TDF: the Techsoft Document Format. TDF is quite similar to TIFF and supports multiple, mixed color and B/W pages in a single file. However, TDF also supports multiple layers on each page.
Below you will find a complete, searchable list of the file formats supported in the Techsoft products PixEdit®, PixView® and PixJet®.
