PDF/A: Document Processing & Archiving in the Digital Age
written by Ari Gross, PhD. CEO of CVISION Technologies, Inc.
Making the Case for PDF/A
Digital media needs to be archived, searched, and analyzed – now more than ever. PDF is the only standard that has the flexibility, industry trust, and the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) certification to be used as an electronic document archiving standard. PDF/A is the version of PDF specifically designed by Adobe and the ISO committee to provide the set of features required to encapsulate all of a document’s properties, with no information loss. With PDF/A, one can reliably replicate the exact look and feel of a document years later.
Within this paper, we motivate the logical imperatives that have made PDF the de facto international standard for document processing and archiving. We further describe how PDF/A, a variation of PDF that is specifically designed for long-term document archiving, seems to be the next step in electronic document archives. Companies and government agencies that take archiving and records management seriously are increasingly requiring that PDF/A be the format of choice for their documents.
