imageConvert is a server based "hot folder" solution that allows you to convert image files into different file formats and color spaces. The actual conversion is carried out by the HELIOS ImageServer software. If HELIOS PDF HandShake is also installed on the server, imageConvert is able to convert PDF files into several different file formats and color spaces.
If the same conversion has to be carried out many times, imageConvert can help to simplify and accelerate this process considerably. Users simply copy the files to be converted into a "hot folder" on the server and they are automatically converted. The kind of conversion is simply defined within the folder name.
Color space conversion is done with the HELIOS color management system and can be managed using ICC profiles. The user simply copies the source and output profiles to the relevant subfolders of the “ICC-Profiles” volume.
Easy to use: Conversion defined in the folder name
Flexible: Different conversions in different conversion folders
Fast: Conversion is done on the server
High-quality color conversion
Simple using of ICC profiles by copying them into subfolders
Mainly platform-independent; testet on Mac OSX, Linux, Sun Solaris
