Snowbound Software’s products offer powerful, flexible support for PDF documents (including batch conversion to PDF) tailored to your development and business needs.

Snowbound's PDF Solutions 

PDF Viewing and Conversion can be accomplished through a browser or with an Adobe Acrobat application, but a powerful document viewer like Snowbound’s VirtualViewer® HTML5 that can be integrated into existing repositories and content management systems is critical for more advanced functions. A document viewer ensures an organization is able to handle the full range of PDF documents (including improper documents that are corrupt, faulty, and not covered by the spec), as well as hundreds of other formats that aren’t supported by Adobe. A pure HTML5 document viewer also allows for users to have access to robust viewing and collaboration features across a variety of platforms, including mobile devices and tablets.

Our technology allows access to PDF documents from memory or a directory and is contained in a compact library under 1 MB. The library supports both Type 1, Type 2, double-byte and composite fonts.

PDF Viewing, Conversion, and Text Extraction

  • Our RasterMaster® Conversion SDK allows you to build viewing, conversion and over 140 other expert imaging functions into your custom applications for PDF documents. 
  • Our powerful VirtualViewer® HTML5 viewer enables you to view, convert, manipulate, combine, annotate, redact and print PDF files through a standard Web browser. Because VirtualViewer® is developed from our robust imaging SDK, it supports all of the file formats offered in our library. With VirtualViewer® HTML5 you have the ability to view multiple document and image formats, including PDF, through a universal viewer instead of separate viewers for AFP, TIFF, PDF, and Word. 


Avoid surprises and delays. Snowbound Software recommends that, as part of your evaluation process, you test your own sample documents against our products. Though we've been in the document business for almost 20 years, modifications to document formats occur from time to time. Often they don't conform to specifications, but you may find it important to work with them. Snowbound, unlike most of our competitors, develops it own technology. If in the rare case you come across a problem or non-conforming document or image, we can often quickly fix it.
