SDI Convert CGM is an industrial strength vector file converter that will convert CGM, CGM+ or CGM*PIP to other vector formats such as POSTSCRIPT, PDF, EMF. Convert CGM will also convert CGM, CGM+ or CGM*PIP to raster formats such as TIFF, JPEG and PNG as well as convert CGM to DWG/DXF

SDI Convert EMF will convert the popular Windows format EMF to the Adobe vector formats POSTSCRIPT and PDF as well as DWG/DXF. In addition Convert EMF will convert EMF to the widely used image formats TIFF, JPEG and PNG.

SDI Convert POSTSCIPT can convert any Adobe postscript file (ps or eps) to PDF or EMF. For easy importing of POSTSCRIPT to applications that have limited import capabilities, Convert POSTSCRIPT will convert to JPEG, PNG and TIFF.

SDI Convert HPGL converts HPGL, HPGL2 and PLT files to CGM, EMF, POSTSCRIPT and PDF while also allowing Convert HPGL to generate the raster formats PNG, TIFF and JPEG. Convert HPGL also will convert RTL files to TIFF for easy import to applications that cannot handle RTL format. Convert HPGL to DWG is also available using SDI Convert

SDI Convert PDF can convert Adobe's PDF format to the other vector formats SDI supports - CGM, EMF and POSTSCIPT. Convert PDF to DWG is also supported by SDI Convert. Raster formats that Convert PDF will convert to are TIFF, PNG & JPEG.

SDI Convert will convert DWG to other publishing formats such as EMF, PDF, TIFF, JPEG and PNG.

Convert TIFF conveniently allows the user to create PDF, POSTSCRIPT, CGM or EMF. Convert TIFF will also convert to the other image formats PNG and JPEG. Convert JPEG and Convert PNG behave similarly to Convert TIFF.
