  The PDF file format is a document format developed by the Adobe to be read using Adobe Reader. It exists in variants: Image-only PDF contains raster content; Regular PDF contains vectors and text. Hybrid PDFs contain vectors and rasters. PDF is increasingly found in engineering environments. Trix Systems offers the solutions below for converting and viewing Acrobat PDF files.

More on the difference between raster and vector PDFs

  Image-only PDF is less susceptible to reverse engineering and therefore a better protector of intellectual property. PDF/A is the image-only variant of PDF that is specifically designed for archiving. Trix Systems software applications always produce PDF/A.
