Foxit/LuraTech Rendition Server
On-premise, scalable web service platform for
company-wide PDF services.




    Foxit/LuraTech Rendition Server

    Foxit Rendition Server is a highly adaptable document conversion solution
    that allows enterprises to carry out virtually limitless transformation processes
    using a single, fully scalable conversion platform.

    Using Rendition Server, organizations can standardize conversion strategies,
    including long-term archiving compliance with PDF and PDF/A conversion,
    establishing PDF accessibility, Personal Identifiable information (PII) redaction,
    or automated Customer Communications Management (CCM),
    for use by anyone, anywhere in the organization.


    When does Foxit/LuraTech Rendition Server fit?

    • Central, enterprise-wide, PDF conversion platform

    • Reduces "the format zoo" - standard PDF formats

    • Compliance requirements
      • Safeguarding with PDF/A

    • Find documents - i.g. for GDPR

    • Technical highlights:
      • Web services as universal interface
      • Integration in the enterprise infrastructure
      • Enterprise level solution with scalability and operation support

    Get Useful Output from Omnichannel Input

    The modern enterprise needs to be able to manage and process
    documents regardless of their input channel or file format.
    Rendition Server helps organizations reach that goal by enabling them to
    manipulate a wide array of inputs, including PDFs, scans, emails, faxes,
    digitally born files, and pictures taken on mobile devices.

    These inputs can then be transformed into documents that are
    full-text searchable, archivable, protected, redacted, accessible, or
    otherwise according to your specification.
    With a global team of in-house experts in PDF technology, Rendition Server
    clients can trust in full-featured document conversion capabilities
    (for example, convert to all PDF/A subtypes including PDF/A-2u).

    Further, using an in-house team avoids the need to involve sluggish and
    often political third-party dynamics, enabling agility and flexibility for
    clients looking to expand their conversion workflows.
    Rendition Server is designed to integrate seamlessly into your
    IT environment, and uniquely enables IT leaders to create documents
    according to their desired output needs with ease.

Foxit/LuraTech Rendition Server - Overview - Picture

    Standardize Your Document Conversion Processes

    With standardized document workflows, enterprises simultaneously
    reduce costs and mitigate compliance risks.

    Enterprises using different document conversion solutions in different
    departments or office locations accrue unnecessary maintenance,
    training, and renewal expenses on those redundant technologies.
    In addition, without the ability to establish a unified conversion process
    across multiple solutions, IT departments leave room for error in
    document handling and open themselves up to legal risk and
    non-compliance with records retention laws.

    By deploying Rendition Server, clients establish document conversion
    strategies scalable for use across departments and locations.
    Since these strategies reside in one robust solution, they can be
    controlled from a singular point and accessed by anyone.
    This eliminates the need to pay for overlapping solutions and mitigates risk
    by enabling employees in various locations or departments to apply
    the same settings when processing specific document types.
    - i.e. a predictable and thus quality-assured conversion result.


    Convert Documents From Anywhere

    Built for the modern enterprise, Rendition Server can be set up to
    initiate processing through diverse avenues.
    With a responsive web service interface, both mobile and desktop users
    can go through a web browser to interact with the platform.
    Rendition Server also provides command line access, watch folder mode,
    and configurable options for further flexibility.
    For example, users can even call the software by sending an email to a
    dedicated email address that the software monitors.


    Enterprise Scale and Stability

    Rendition Server is a fully scalable solution designed to act as a
    one-stop shop for all document conversion needs within an entire organization.
    It is created with the idea that sudden peaks in processing load happen,
    and need to be handled quickly and effectively when they come up.
    Further, Rendition Server is equipped with sophisticated failover and load balancing
    capabilities to ensure stability and efficiency in the event of a failure by any one
    server location (physical or virtual, and especially at peak processing periods).

Foxit/LuraTech Rendition Server Architecture

    The Foxit/LuraTech Rendition Server (FLTRS) assumes a critical role
    within your business, as the central receiving point for server-based
    document and file conversion.
    Using a universal web service interface, you can easily integrate
    Foxit's/LuraTech’s proven technology into other systems and a
    wide variety of environments.

    Maintain quality standards.
    The FLTRS provides valuable to support to help you maintain quality standards.
    This is because the Rendition Server ensures PDF and PDF/A files are stored
    at the same level of quality enterprise-wide, across all sectors and systems.

    No matter whether the documents come from an ERP, CRM or ECM system,
    or whether they are used for external communication or for internal
    storage and archiving:
    All documents can be produced centrally and globally at
    the quality levels and degree of consistency required.
    One positive side-effect is that using the Foxit/LuraTech Rendition Server
    saves businesses from having to use a wide variety of smaller
    conversion tools distributed around different departments.

    Highly scalable and light on resources.
    Unlike the well-known Foxit/LuraTech PDF Compressor,
    the Foxit/LuraTech Rendition Server (developed from the ground up)
    is based on parallel processing techniques, meaning it can easily be
    scaled across multiple servers, growing to meet application scenarios
    with the highest of throughput rates.

    In other words,
    the Foxit/LuraTech Rendition Server distributes work over a number of
    assigned servers, making it easy to make optimal use of existing
    hardware and other resources.

Enterprise-wide PDF conversion platform.


    Every conversion job begins by sending a request to the conversion web service.
    A request contains descriptions of the input and output,
    as well as the strategy selected and the properties added by the client.
    Each strategy defines which process should be executed and
    with which standard properties.

    License Models

    Rendition Server Licensing Options

    Rendition Server licensing is simple and straightforward.
    Licensing is determined by the number of pages processed per year (Volume),
    as well as the number of servers required for your operation (Speed).

    For example:
    A valid license configuration might be:
    - 3 million pages per year on 1 server,
    - 24 million pages per year on 4 servers, or
    - unlimited pages on unlimited servers.

    Yearly Maintenance Fee: 20%.


    Determining Your Enterprise License Needs

    1. To start, we'll find your document processing volume requirements,
    on a pages per year basis.

    Volume Options:

    • 3,000,000
    • 6,000,000
    • 12,000,000
    • 24,000,000
    • Unlimited Volume

    2. We would then work together to determine the number of servers,
    a worker node, best suited for your use case.
    Typically, number of servers required scales with processing speed demands
    and is used to address large anticipated variations in peak or seasonal needs.

    Server Options *):

    • 1 Worker Node
    • 2 Worker Nodes
    • 4 Worker Nodes
    • 8 Worker Nodes
    • Unlimited Worker Nodes

    *) "Server Options" refers to the number of worker nodes in a configuration.
    The charts above assume 1 manager node; configurations involving
    multiple manager nodes are also available.
