Last month we announced an updated product range for 2018. One of the changes is we have rebranded JPDF2HTML5 to BuildVu. This is because the product does not just convert PDF to HTML5. It offers both a complete off-the-shelf document viewing solution and a simple converter that can be used to craft your own viewing solution.
Can BuildVu convert PDF to SVG?
Yes! BuildVu can be used for converting PDF files to SVG in order to display within web browsers on mobile, tablet and desktop. Like PDF, SVG is a vector image format that makes it a good alternative to PDF as it offers many of the same graphics capabilities and is also web-ready.
BuildVu is able to produce a highly accurate representation of the original PDF file maintaining the layout, graphics, textual content and fonts. Our developers are obsessive about making sure it has the most accurate conversion with the smallest file size and fastest rendering. There are also a range of configuration options that allow you to control how text is rendered, which fonts to use, whether to embed content as base64, compress images, and more.
We have put a lot of time and effort into making BuildVu the best PDF to SVG converter available and continue to have a very busy development schedule throughout 2018 and beyond.
What problem does converting PDF to SVG solve?
BuildVu is used by companies world-wide to display their PDF content natively in the browser, offering the same consistent experience across mobile, tablet and desktop. It is particularly popular with companies displaying magazines online who are switch away from flat images and legacy flash solutions.
