Introducing HostServe
American PrintWare Inc.’s HostServe is a Windows based document delivery and interconnectivity system capable of transforming mainframe, network, and web data streams (SNA Character String, LCDS DJDE/Metacode, XES, AFP, IPDS, Xerox VIPP™, Line Printer, PCL, PostScript, PDF, TIFF, JPEG, DOC, RTF, HTML, EMF) into an array of output formats (PCL, PostScript, PDF, TIFF, JPEG, BMP, HTML, XML, ASCII or Database, with associated indexes) and offers the user great freedom in the delivery and formatting of vital business information. Users can view, edit/repurpose, index, sort, print, and archive documents—regardless of origination—anywhere, at any time using a wide variety of printers, viewers, archival, content management or document management systems.

  • HostServe will check keys on a page and then determine what recipe it will use to repurpose the document. This gives the page a Document Type.
  • HostServe can take in any text document and repurpose it based on its document type . This is done by defining the areas of the page and defining the changes. These page areas are called “Viewports”. The Viewport specifications and the required changes are contained in a document Recipe.
  • Viewports allow HostServe to selectively look at specific areas of the page for data that is needed later in the document process.
  • HostServe will go through each of the Viewport areas sequentially and extract the data into separate tags for recipe processing.
  • Viewports are commonly triggered by the contents of the page, as the Viewports defined for Page 1 would not meet the criteria necessary to process Page 2.
  • Viewports can float up and down the page. An example of this would be a bill with a total that may appear at various places on the page depending on the number of items billed.
  • Customer can have as many Viewports on a page as desired.
  • Recipes can control data triggering of:
    • Text, reformatting, additions, deletions
    • Line Draw Graphics
    • Barcodes, OMR Marks
    • Charts, Business Graphics
    • Images, Sales Person, Contract, etc.
