Customer Success Story

Product Details

Metacode to AFP

Meta to AFP converts print streams and DJDE resources from Xerox LCDS and Metacode to AFP formats by performing an object-to-object transformation that creates an optimized compatible AFP file. Fonts, images, logos and forms appear exactly the same on AFP printers as they do on Xerox printers.

Meta to PDF

Meta to PDF interprets and transforms print streams and DJDE resources from Xerox LCDS and Metacode to PDF files for use with desktops and browsers using Adobe’s Acrobat® Reader. The software emulates pre-printed stock, quickly converts all fonts for an accurate and clean look, and allows the full power of PDF to be utilized within legacy applications.

Meta Normalization

Meta Normalization interprets Xerox LCDS and Metacode print streams and transforms them into standard Normalized Metacode files. This allows printer resources to be managed on a host system or LAN instead of on printers and provides a myriad of possible uses to simplify resource management and disaster recovery planning.

Meta to PS

Meta to PS product converts Xerox LCDS and Metacode to PostScript formats. Output is quickly converted and routed, and optimized for production performance with superior font mapping and fidelity. Original printer capabilities, such as stapling, tray mapping, color mapping, and duplex or simplex printing are all supported.

Meta to Data

Meta to Data lets you convert Xerox Metacode into data files, like XML and CSV, that can be used in common business and database applications. The software allows you to leverage the value and infrastructure associated with legacy Xerox print streams without incurring any IT modification costs.

Meta to HTML

Meta to HTML converts Xerox Metacode, LCDS and Line Data documents into HTML. This allows organizations to use Xerox print files in Web applications and leverage the value of legacy applications. Statements, bills, invoices, etc, can be displayed in standard browsers giving instant online access to agents and customers.

Meta to PCL

Meta to PCL dynamically converts Xerox LCDS and Metacode documents to PCL for printing on PCL-based desktop printers. Xerox fonts appear the same on Desktop and LAN printers as they do on Xerox printers. The software is optimized for superior image fidelity and production-speed with low resource usage and fast execution.

Meta to PDF/A

Meta to PDF/A is a cost-effective, platform-independent product that takes your production Metacode print streams and produces PDF/A-1b output ready to archive. This eliminates the technological, legal and regulatory challenges associated with storing and retrieving Metacode documents long term.

Meta to Image

Meta to Image offers the best performance available for conversions from Xerox LCDS and Metacode to image files like TIFF or PNG by creating images that are perfect representations of the original legacy files. All Xerox fonts, overlays and other resources are reduced exactly as they are on Xerox printers.
