ActivePDF Meridian


ActivePDF Meridian is a powerful tool that can help you achieve your PDF generation goals with ease. It operates on a scalable server architecture and can handle print-to-PDF output from most Windows-based applications, eliminating the need for any additional native-to-PostScript-to-PDF conversions. The ActivePDF User Interface provides several configuration options, and the robust API offers complete control over PDF output on a job-by-job basis. By using ActivePDF Meridian, you can simplify your PDF generation process and focus on what matters most - your business.

Meridian is a networked virtual PDF printer engineered for server-side rendering that enables developers to empower users to leverage enterprise computing power with no per-user, or per-document fees via a simple “print from client” features.

Fully "Point and Print" enabled, Meridian means zero client-side installation and administration by an organisations’ technical staff.  With its unique "round trip" technology, the difficulties of managing individual PDFs printers are eliminated. Everything appears local and bespoke to the end-user.  Built with native Microsoft Windows® compatibility, users can rest assured the drivers have been rigorously tested for every possible scenario.

Meridian provides all of the functionality of Windows Server, with the following additional capabilities:

  • Network printing—Provides the ability to set up and share a network printer so that it is available to a client machine.
  • Remote API—Provides the ability to perform print-to-PDF conversions remotely.
  • Digital signatures—Provides the ability to capture a digital signature and apply it to the output PDF.
  • Stamping—Provides the ability to add text and/or an image to the pages of the output PDF.
