To see exactly how easy it is you can send RedTitan your job files and request a test demo. For more information, send us an email with 'DataStream Conversion demo' in the title.

There are not many laser printers that can't print PCL. If you need to convert PCL to PDF or just recover text, RedTitan has the fastest utility in the industry. Check out our specialist website PCL Viewer - download a free demo

No need to rewrite legacy applications

Upgrading to new printers can be a daunting task when every JSL job from the Xerox line printer has to be converted. RedTitan lets you print your existing documents on the new printer without wasting valuable programming time on recoding applications (or maintaining an old printer just to run old jobs).

The core module of the system, DataStream Converter Run-Time, automatically converts a DJDE and Metacode datastream on-the-fly. The output will be indistinguishable from the Xerox line printer. Centralised jobs can then be distributed for printing on PCL and PostScript printers at any other sites. DataStream Converter can work in conjunction with the RedTitan Dynamic Document Formatter to create powerful remote distributed printing environments where CEP applications may be broadcast over any local area network.

The difference between RedTitan and other companies offering legacy conversion is that we guarantee to make it work. Once all the forms and resources have been converted the job just runs. No messing around.

More printer formats and viewing options

RedTitan's Legacy Migration System supports more printer formats than any other system. It currently outputs directly to PCL, native PostScript, Xerox VIPP and IBM-AFP so you can migrate to virtually any printer. There is also the option to create TIFF and PDF via the PCL conversion tool EscapeE and/or strip out datafields to comma separated, XML or plain text. It's not a one-way conversion either. Your Metacode is preserved and you can still use the centralised printer if you wish.

RedTitan is one of only two PostScript Type II converters that have been tested and validated by Xerox and is the only one that also outputs VIPP. In the USA, our system has obtained the Open Document Services certification.

No other software offers so many viewing options for your documents on a stand-alone or network basis. DataStream Converter offers:

  • a built-in Metacode viewer;
  • a hot-link to Adobe Acrobat for viewing PostScript output;
  • unique to RedTitan — a hot-link to the new PCL viewer EscapeE.

New jobs are easy to set up and check

RedTitan's Legacy Migration System comes with the option of a complete development kit for new jobs. Instead of running in batch mode, the Developer version opens up with a set of tabbed windows and links to many useful utilities for preparing and checking the components of a job.

Now you can check the syntax of the JSL file and link to the RedTitan JSL Editor for correcting errors. The system lists the resources used in the job and alerts you to missing fonts and forms. You can view font details, view and edit the raw data, and convert forms and resources automatically to different formats.

From the Developer window you have a hot-link to the Page Designer module of the Document Design System. Here you can create new forms or read in and edit existing FSLs/FRMs so that you don't have to run legacy jobs unchanged.

When everything is correct, you just select an output format and, at the touch of a button, merge the JSL, data and forms on screen. You can scroll through the pages to check the compete job and sample pages on a local printer. The DJDEs generated can also be checked.
