Trusted by many of the Fortune 500 to satisfy their PDF content extraction requirements, PDFTextStream for Java and .NET is now available free for use in single-threaded applications. This makes PDFTextStream broadly accessible to startups, nonprofits and smaller organizations that need PDFTextStream's unbeatable PDF format support and text extraction accuracy.

"We have always done what we can to support smaller PDFTextStream use cases — certain discounts, free academic-use licensing, and so on — but we wanted to do more," said Chas Emerick, Founder of Snowtide Informatics.

"I'm really excited to see what sorts of applications PDFTextStream finds its way into with this new free option," he added. "PDFTextStream is now within anyone's reach."

The free PDFTextStream licensing option is available to any organization and technical use case, with the limitation that only single-threaded applications may use PDFTextStream without a purchased license, and that OEM or other redistribution without a suitable license is prohibited.

In every other respect, the free PDFTextStream option delivers all of the same PDF text and content extraction capabilities, PDF format compatibility, performance, and API simplicity that has motivated hundreds of Snowtide customers to choose its fully-licensed cousin to process billions of PDF documents each year.

PDFTextStream licenses start at $2,000 USD per server; redistribution options for OEM partners are available at reasonable royalty-free rates. For additional PDFTextStream product details, please visithttp://www.snowtide.com
