Rainbow PDF Office Server Document Converter (OSDC), formerly named Server Based Converter, will batch convert Word, Excel & Powerpoint to high quality PDF or image formats that are easy to share and look accurate on any screen. It’s easy to use OSDC in any workflow, whether it is to convert your files on demand or in a batch operation at high speed.
OSDC is the favored solution of network application service providers due to the shortened development time. It is thread safe allowing concurrent access to the software and includes APIs for Java, .NET, COM, Command-line & C/C++.
Convert Documents to PDF without MS Office or Adobe Software
Competing software rely heavily on MS Office and Adobe software to do their conversion, which significantly slows down conversion speed, adds to costs and limit the number and individual size of documents. OSDC uses its own creation engine, freeing you from those limits and additional costs. In production, OSDC has converted on average over 100 pages per second*.
Support for Conversion of Microsoft 2016 & Bidirectional Text
With the newest release of Rainbow PDF Office Server Document Converter V6.1, we now support Microsoft Office 2016 conversions. It also supports bidirectional text (BIDI) and will correctly display right-to-left scripts such as Arabic or Hebrew. The MS Word conversion engine in V6.0 has been completely rewritten to ensure high-fidelity while maintaining the integrity of the original document when converting to PDF.
Note: SBC V6.0MR3 & OSDC V6.1 are the same for download purposes.
The Plus version allows you to input CGM, and output XPS, INX, and SWF files.
