Converting to SVG - Using your app's existing output capabilities

SVG is still a rare sighting for the average Web surfer. But behind the scenes, serious businesses have adopted it to store, publish and (re)use some serious content – ranging from engineering drawings to financial reports. One of the technologies available for them to embrace SVG is The Graphics Connection software from Visual Integrity. Besides a detailed overview of our product line, we will present a number of business cases. These real-world examples from diverse industries can give people the confidence, and some ideas, to jump on the SVG train as well. As an old Dutch saying goes: once one sheep crosses the dam, others will follow.

Technology overview

The PostScript® print and Windows® GDI display model are two of the most important content rendering systems in the world. And businesses in many industries want SVG to provide them with the XML and Web equivalent. Instead of coding SVG from scratch or (XML) data, they use the file conversion modules from Visual Integrity to convert their existing graphics and document flows from Acrobat® PDF, (E)PS or Windows Metafiles to SVG. Interactive on their desktops, automated on their enterprise servers, or integrated into their own applications.

Business cases

If you can print or display it, we can convert it. And we do, for all sorts of graphics in all sorts of industries. In this part of our talk, you will hear about

Together, these implementations will show that the benefits of SVG as Scalable Vector Graphics in XML are already important to the business world. And as you can see throughout this conference, those benefits just scratch the surface of SVG's full capabilities.

Available for questions will be Jan Homan, technical director and lead developer of The Graphics Connection.
