PDFTron's XPSConvert is an easy-to-use, multi-platform command-line program that provides users with an efficient way to convert XPS or OpenXPS documents into PDF as well as image formats (such as PNG, TIFF, BMP, and JPEG).
XPSConvert enables high-quality conversion from XPS to PDF that maintains the original document quality and preserves hyperlinks, colors and fonts. The resulting self-contained and compact PDF and image files can be distributed, viewed, edited, archived, printed, and published. The conversion also offers a wide range of options to control the output file size and image quality.
Like other PDFTron products, XPSConvert does not rely on Microsoft .NET platform or any other third party components. The technology is suitable for use in high-throughput server environments and is also available as a component for integration with third party applications.
"XPS" stands for "XML Paper Specification" and is a new document format as well as the native print spooler format in Microsoft Windows™. The XPS document format consists of XML markup that defines the layout of a document and the visual appearance of each page along with rendering rules for distributing, archiving, rendering, processing and printing the documents. Just like PDF, the XPS document format enables users to view, print, and archive any type of documents without the original program that created them and without loss of fidelity.
With the emergence of the new document format XPS, interoperability between XPS and other document formats, predominantly a document format as widely accepted as PDF, will be crucial to many business workflows and applications.
PDFTron is leading the way in developing the next generation of our core technology that will enable users to take advantage of both PDF and XPS document formats in their solutions.

For developers who are looking for a software development component to integrate into their application, PDFTron also offers a PDF SDK, an easy-to-use, yet powerful software component for embedding into client and server based applications. PDF SDK is available as a shared library and can be easily accessed from any programming language (including C#, VB.NET, C/C++, Java, VB6, Perl, Python, Ruby, Delphi, etc). XPSConvert is also available as an add-on module for our PDF SDK.
