Open Seas

Since its inception in Paris in the early 1990s Open Seas has been supporting users of the HP3000 mini computer platform either with its own software or as a reseller for other software software titles.

Over the past 25 years that role has changed with times, especially with HP 'sun setting' the venerable HP3000. Our products like many, but by no means all, of our customers have migrated to Unix and windows platforms.


FANTASIA

is much more than just an electronic forms and check printing package. Its sophisticated text mark-up language makes easy work of on-the-fly output formatting for everything from manuals and client stock portfolios, to insurance and legal documents with variable contract clauses. Fantasia is also used as a dynamic mail merge tool where whole paragraphs, pages and graphics change depending on the variables data found a the output stream. Fantasia includes numerous built in fonts and bar codes.


Fantasia is software for the HP3000 computer systems though a unix version was sold during the 1990s.


FLASER

FLASER was originally written as a migration tool for our Fantasia software users to aid their migration off the HP3000 platform to Unix and Windows. FLASER supports the Fantasia mark-up language (the \ and ^ commands). It is also available to new users as a stand-alone high volume dynamic output formatting tool in its own right for Windows and Unix systems. Take any output & format it on the fly, change the layout dependant on the data, overlay forms, or logos, add signatures.

If you are a Fantasia user planning to migrate off the HP3000 to Windows or Unix then use FLASER to make the move painless, at least for the output aspect of your migration.


OpenPDF

ia a PCL to PDF conversion product for the HP3000 computer system based on Visual Software's PCL2PDF (for Windows and Unix). OpenPDF converts text & graphics to optimised PDFs.


The optional SpoolPDF add-on converts MPE spool file CCTL commands to PCL enabling aqny HP3000 spool file to be converted to PDF regardless of the source application which created the output file.

PCL2PDF
