Adobe Distiller on Steroids 

Formerly known as Adobe Normalizer and based on the Distiller utility included in Acrobat, Adobe PDF Converter SDK is an API that converts PostScript (PS), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), JPEG, BMP, TIFF, PNG and PPML files to PDF.

Like Distiller, PDF Converter converts PostScript language streams into PDF streams. In addition, Converter offers batch processing of files and is highly customizable, allowing you to control many aspects of conversion that cannot be controlled through the Distiller interface – including fonts, parameters, what they consume and produce, among other important differences between the two.

Spoiler alert: PDF Converter can do more!
