Hyland’s Document Filters SDK gives software developers the tools they need to embed rich document processing into their applications. A single toolkit provides all you need to:
extract content, including track changes and hidden content from 550+ formats;
convert documents to high-fidelity renditions in PDF, SVG, HTML5, XML, PostScript or Image; and
manipulate, annotate, redact and markup content, all out of the box.
Document Filters is one of the few SDKs to run natively on 22 platforms, from mobile to mainframe, Android to AIX. Our APIs give you the choice of language to integrate with your application, including Java, C#, C/C++ or Python.
Explore how easy it is to leverage Document Filters in your applications by taking advantage of the sample code below.
Leverage Document Filters to:
Extract every piece of value in a file: Unique ‘deep inspection’ capability lets you extract and analyze all of the text and metadata in a file – even what was previously hidden (e.g., tracked changes, comments, notes, annotations and embedded web links).
Seamlessly view the content in a high-quality format: View, render and even manipulate the extracted content in near pixel-perfect high definition. Create renditions using your preferred output format, including HTML5, PDF, multi-page TIFF, PNG and SVG.
Choose the language that works for you: C/C++, Java, C#, VB.NET and Python are supported out-of-the-box, and the library can be called from any language that supports “C” bindings.
Identify the true nature of content: Intelligent file identification means the source content is accurately identified for filtering, without simply relying on the filename extension.
Deploy to virtually any platform: Natively supported on 22 platforms – including Windows, MacOS, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, HP-UX and AIX – Document Filters does not require bloated run-time, providing lightning faster performance and easier deployment.
Document Filters is the ideal OEM partner technology for processing unstructured content outside of native applications. Today, this powerful technology is the key catalyst driving content mining and intelligence-gathering across a key range of business applications. These include:
As an embeddable set of components, Document Filters serves as the 'intelligence' inside solutions from many global ISVs and SaaS vendors. It also helps drive content gathering and mining for ISV software applications.
