    Long-term preservation challenges for archives
    Electronic archives must prove electronic documents are authentic,
    reliable, complete, unaltered, and usable across time.


    PDF/A - The recommended document format for long-term preservation
    PDF/A is the recommended document file format of choice for long-term document archiving and
    preservation that can be trusted to guarantee how documents will display over a long period of time.

    PDF/A-1, PDF/A-2 and PDF/A-3 are all ISO Standards (ISO 19005-1, 19005-2 and 19005-3)
    and complementing formats used for long-term archiving of digital documents.


    callas pdfaPilot - Tools converting documents to PDF/A

    • preparing documents for archival
    • dynamic workflows dynamic using variables


    callas pdfaPilot is compatible with Adobe® Acrobat® DC
    (in fact it uses the same rock-solid PDF/A technology),
    but in addition allows you to automate and batch process PDF files.


    Make documents and emails last a lifetime
    In many environments, there are regulatory requirements that all communication
    regarding specific topics has to be archived for a certain period of time.
    How long that is can differ widely - from a few years to multiple tens of years,
    or even for all eternity.

    The format of choice for archiving is defined in the ISO standard PDF/A ("PDF for Archiving").
    This ISO standard defines three different PDF/A versions and callas pdfaPilot can automatically
    convert all of documents and emails into the PDF/A flavor required for your purposes.
    Additional job information (metadata) is fully supported and the solution is configurable
    enough to let it adapt to your workflow; instead of the other way around.

    Archiving documents is a critical operation of modern workflows;
    for that reason callas pdfaPilot has been extensively tested and complies
    with the ISO standards as verified with for example the Isartor test suite.
    The fact that the very same technology is used in the de facto standard,
    Adobe Acrobat, is testament to its quality.

    Archiving typical office documents
    The best way to have good PDF/A files is to properly create them to begin with.
    For this, callas pdfaPilot can automatically convert Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint,
    Project, Publisher and Visio files into quality PDF files for you.
    Simply drag them on the document window of callas pdfaPilot Desktop and
    the conversion takes place in the best possible way.
    Apache OpenOffice documents are fully supported too and on
    Mac OS X Pages and Keynote of course work as well.

    Using the integrated Adobe engine, callas pdfaPilot even does quality conversion of
    EPS and PostScript files for you, without requiring Adobe Acrobat Distiller to be installed.

    Email archiving
    These days, emails are an essential part of business communication in most organizations.
    Many countries have laws and regulations around the archival of such communication,
    either to be used in potential future litigation or as part of sound accounting practices.

    Because emails are usually handled by email servers with limited storage capacities,
    there are no guarantees that an email you receive today will still be on the server ten years from now.
    When you download the email from your server it is possibly converted into the proprietary format
    of the email client, and there is no guarantee that you will have such a client in the future.

    In addition, there are attachments to the emails that require a proper viewer
    for all file formats that may occur here.

    Luckily callas pdfaPilot lets you store these emails including all attachments in a
    PDF/A format that will be available and readable many years from now.

    But even in environments where such regulatory guidelines don’t apply,
    there are good reasons to archive emails.
    In our modern society an amazing amount of business intelligence is captured in emails.
    Being able to maintain that information in a structured way and in the same format that
    is used for other documents and being able to efficiently search all of those documents
    including emails and their attachments efficiently will only become more important.

    Handle EPUB and PDF/UA ("Accessible PDF")
    Thanks to its unique checking feature for tagging structure in a PDF file callas pdfaPilot
    also offers optimized exporting to PDF/UA, the standard for accessibility.

    More and more legislation requires documents to be universally accessible for everyone,
    including people with physical disabilities.
    As a result, checking against the PDF/UA standard has gained importance for
    service providers, governments and enterprise customers alike.

    But pdfaPilot lets you take advantage of PDF tagging in a very different area as well:
    The tagging structure can be used in order to automatically create EPUB files from PDF.
    This PDF to EPUB feature converts PDFs into eBook files that can immediately be used
    on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets.

    New features in callas pdfaPilot 7:

    • callas pdfaPilot v7 is now compatible with veraPDF.

    • callas software underscores the importance of standards as
      pdfaPilot v7 is fully compatible with the veraPDF project
      currently being promoted by the European Union.

      veraPDF involves the creation of a new test data set for all standard PDF/A components,
      as well as an open source PDF/A validator, covering all areas and compliance
      levels of PDF/A, the ISO format for long-term archiving.

      veraPDF is an initiative led by the PDF Association and the Open Preservation Foundation.
      Over the course of around two years, the project first created a test corpus which was
      significantly more extensive than the previously used Isartor test suite.

      The project also provides an open-source PDF/A validator with which businesses
      can check whether files comply with the PDF/A standard,
      keeping them reproducible and readable for decades to come.

      callas pdfaPilot v7 being compatible with veraPDF means
      users achieve the same level of quality by using
      the PDF/A validator embedded in callas pdfaPilot.

      Users can thus use a single tool, callas pdfaPilot, for PDF/A validation,
      and also for PDF/A correction and PDF/A conversion!


    • Placement of any type pop content.
callas software pdfaPilot - Switchboard - Decorate - Picture

      Typical applications include consecutive numbering of multi-page documents (Bates numbering),
      stamping documents on receipt, watermarking test prints,
      adding barcodes for print management and for document classification
      for storage within an enterprise content management system (CMS).
      The solution also allows users to insert new pages thanks to
      support for cover and separator sheets templates.

      NOTE! This function works even after the evaluation license for callas pdfaPilot has expired.
      callas pdfaPilot can thus continue to be used, for free, to show document structure,
      reading order and alternative text for images.


    • pdfaPilot provides tools to check both the syntax and the semantic for PDF/UA compliance.
callas software pdfaPilot - Syntactic and semantic verification of compliance with the PFD/UA standard - Picture
      pdfaPilot provides PDF/UA compliance checks for both
      • machine-checking of the syntax, and
      • interactive (human) checking of the semantic
      in a tightly integrated fashion.
      After validation has been successful, a PDF/UA validation report can be generated.


        Validation Reports (Customizable)

        Example:
        Test of "accessible PDF" - PDF/UA validation by software

        Note! Important to always consider for conformance validation against the ISO Standard PDF/UA:
          PDF/UA conformance requires validation of both syntax and semantic.
          The Matterhorn Protocol specifies a common set of
          31 "Checkpoints" with 136 failure conditions, whereof
          - 89 failure conditions can be checked by software, and
          - 47 failure conditions usually require human judgment.


          Two results - Success or Failure:

          PDF/UA validation successful
          Actino software - Actino DPS Validation Report - Successful - Picture
          The PDF document did pass the software check.
          It remains to also make a human judgement
          before it can be declared as an "accessible PDF"


          PDF/UA validation failure
          Actino software - Actino DPS Validation Report - Unsuccessful/Failure - Picture
          The PDF document did not pass the software check.
          Thus the PDF document is not PDF/UA conformant
          and is not an "accessible PDF"


    • Support of ZUGFeRD invoice with barcode data.

    • ZUGFeRD (German standard) is one of the key initiatives of
      German BMWi to facilitate business for SMEs.
      • Combines PDF/A-3 with XML and GiroCode/QR Code into an electronic invoice
      • Allows for "blind exchange” between computer systems for exchange of invoices
      • XML is based on UN/CEFACT (CII)

      "Tripple invoice" formats:
      • PDF
      • XML
      • GiroCode/QR Code

      • callas pdfaPilot is capable of providing these archival conversions in a manual or
        automated way with callas pdfaPilot Desktop or callas pdfaPilot Server.
        The technology is also available for closer integration using
        the fully command-line driven callas pdfaPilot engine.

        When choosing for the automated way, e-mail archiving rules can be saved.
        Rules can define which e-mails should be archived in what part of the standard or
        how attachments should be processed by callas pdfaPilot.
        Users can define whether they should be converted to PDF/A or
        embedded in the original format or both.
        During the conversion, no other software, such as MS Outlook or
        other e-mail clients have to be installed be installed.

        When it comes to e-mail archiving, callas pdfaPilot works completely by itself.

    Process Plans
    • callas pdfaPilot comes with full support for process plans.
    • Process Plans take automation flexibility to the next level;
      • They allow defining a number of steps a PDF file should be processed through.
      • Each step can be a preflight profile, a single preflight check or fix, or an action
        (such as creating images, creating a booklet, exporting as PostScript file…).
      • Process plans allow generating preflight reports based on the result of each step,
        or can jump between different steps based on the processing result of a previous step.

    Easy, Automated Impositioning
    Impositioning is the action of placement of the pages on a press sheet so that the sheet
    after printing and folding carries the pages in the correct sequence in the finished printed product.
    • callas pdfaPilot scales, fits, moves, extends, rotates and flips pages and page content easily.
    • It also imposes booklets, prepares PDF document for double sided printing,
      splits double pages into single pages, duplicates pages, and optimize PDF for use as
      slide presentation and handouts, etc.

        while preserving text, images and line-art as much as possible and
        without changing the intent of the document.
      • And you can rely on that result as it uses proven Adobe flattening technology.

    callas software callas pdfaPilot Dispatcher - Picture

    • Allows for load balancing as well as for fail over configuration.
    • Processing of files according to "dispatcher-satellite" concept.
    • Dispatcher - a server that doesn’t process files itself, but instead receives
      files in its job folders and sends them to satellites to have them processed.
    • Satellite - a satellite is basically a regular server that will process files.
    • As many "satellites" as required can connect to callas pdfaPilot Dispatcher
    • so that processing does not stop even if one of the satellites is switched off.
    • Fail over - processing does not stop even if one of the satellites is switched off.


    Automation of workflows
    • callas pdfaPilot integrates seamlessly with FileTrain for automation of work flows.
