Sautin Software has released PDF Focus .Net, a component for ASP.Net, C#, and VB.Net developers that converts PDF files to Microsoft Word Rich Text format (RTF) and popular image formats such as multipage TIFF, standard TIFF, JPG, PNG, GIF, and WMF. Unlike components that require Word or Acrobat to be installed on your computer, PDF Focus .Net was created in 100% managed C# code, and is a standalone component with no third-party dependencies.
PDF Focus .Net requires only .Net 2.0 or above, and can be used in ASP.Net, C#, VB.Net, and Delphi.Net, as well as WinForms, Silverlight, and Console. The component directly reads PDF documents of any size, and directly writes RTF, TIFF, and the other popular formats. PDF Focus .Net runs on 32-bit and 64-bit platforms on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
The component extracts Unicode text from PDF files from custom pages. It also rasterizes PDF data to images. PDF Focus .Net maintains the accuracy of tables, images, paragraphs, bullet lists, font faces, font colors, font sizes, hyperlinks, PDF forms, edit boxes, radio buttons, stylesheets, and background colors. While keeping the original layout and format, you control the resolution and quality of images. To make it simple for software developers, PDF Focus .Net is delivered as a single .dll file.
Prices for the developer license for PDF Focus .Net begin at $289(US). The license never expires, and includes 12 months of updates, plus technical support by chat, email, phone, and Skype. There are no royalty fees for the use of PDF Focus .Net.
