PDFTron Systems Incorporated, a leading global provider of cross-platform, high-performance PDF development tools and components, today announced the release of XPSConvert, an easy and effective solution for conversion of XPS documents to PDF as well as various image file formats.

PDFTron's XPSConvert is an indispensable tool for fast and reliable conversion of XPS or OpenXPS documents to PDF and various image file types, such as PNG, TIFF, BMP, JPEG, and RAW.

XPSConvert enables high-quality conversion that maintains the original document quality and preserves hyperlinks, colors and fonts. The resulting self-contained and compact PDF and image files can be distributed, viewed, edited, archived, printed, and published. The conversion also offers a wide range of options to control the output file size and image quality. Like other PDFTron products, XPSConvert is a stand-alone application and does not rely on Microsoft's .NET platform or any other third party components.

XPSConvert is available as a command-line application suitable for use in high-throughput server environments and is also available as a component for integration with third party applications. The application currently supports Windows, Linux and Mac OS X platforms.

Since the emergence of the new document format XPS, interoperability between XPS and other document formats, predominantly a document format as widely accepted as PDF, is becoming crucial to many business workflows and applications. PDFTron is leading the way in developing the next generation of our core technology that will enable users to take advantage of both PDF and XPS document formats in their solutions.

  • Convert XPS or OpenXPS to PDF.
