Browser-based image viewer, manipulation and printing of document images.




The Prizm Viewer provides powerful browser-based image display, annotation, manipulation, navigation, and printing of document images. View single and multi-page TIFF G3/G4, PDF, JPEG, BMP, PCX, DCX, CALS, JEDMICS image file formats and more, through Internet Explorer and Netscape browsers with exceptional image display speed and quality.

The customizable toolbar includes tools to hyperlink, annotate, zoom, add notes, spot magnify and rotate. Centralized control over the Prizm Viewer configuration allows enterprises to use the same viewer to serve multiple departments or user groups with appropriate tools.

Here are some key features of "Prizm Viewer":

Multiple Image File Formats
■ Adobe's PDF technology is utilized for full single and multi-page PDF support
■ Open, View, Annotate, and Print PDF files
■ Choose when to use the Prizm Viewer to display PDF files
■ Optimize delivery of PDF documents from web-based document management systems
■ A custom PDF MIME type is supported to use the Prizm Viewer for delivery of PDF files from the server without the use of Image List Files
■ Use the same annotations feature for both TIFF and PDF images
■ Choose whether PDF files will be viewed as color or bitonal images for use with the Viewer using Preferences
■ Choose how annotations in PDF files are handled (burn them into the image or ignore them) using Preferences

TIFF (single and multiple page, stripped, and tiled) in these formats:
■ Uncompressed
■ Modified Huffman
■ Group 3 1D & 2D
■ Group 4
■ PackBits

Military/Government Specific formats:
■ CALS Type 1 (Group 4)
■ CALS Type 2 (TRIF)
JPEG (Baseline DCT)

■ Set file associations in the Preferences dialog
■ Choose which types of files will be associated with the Prizm Viewer within Internet Explorer
■ Specify different associations for local images than for images transferred from the Internet

Virtual Multi-Page Document
■ Image List Files offer the convenience of a multi-page TIFF file
■ Create "virtual documents" from individual images so you can treat them as multi-page images
■ Quickly view a series of documents as if it were a single multi-page TIFF file
■ Batch print large collections of documents without having to view each document
■ Customizable lists of images mimics a multi-page image file that can be paged through
■ Page through using:
Next/previous page
First/last page
Go to a specific page
■ Delivers all the convenience of a multi-page TIFF file without the bandwidth requirements of downloading multi-page TIFF files

Large Image Support
■ The Prizm Viewer has long been known for its excellent support of large images, especially those used in engineering environments.
■ Handles images as large as 50' x 333'
■ Caches images (partially or completely) for instantaneous rescaling
■ Handles up to 4000 tiles of different compression types and dimensions, including null tiles
■ Birds Eye View (reference window) indicates your current position on the image while remaining zoomed in to a particular area (see example)
■ Magnifying Glass lets you dynamically magnify a particular area of an image (great for tracing wires)
■ Print Acceleration can print large size engineering drawings to Postscript printers up to 80% faster that the same files printed through a standard Windows driver
■ Optional Roll Form Printing - For users with Postscript roll form printers, this option can make it easier to print large engineering drawings by designating the paper roll and allowing the Prizm Viewer to calculate the correct length and width for the drawing.
■ Segmented printing support allows users to print extremely large engineering drawings over multiple pages

Enhance Image Display Quality
■ Improve both color and bitonal (black/white) images
■ Smooth out the blockiness that often occurs with highly-magnified images, over compressed, or poorly scanned documents
■ Bitonal images:
Scale-to-gray (4 shades or 16 shades)
Draft, normal, or high quality
Invert colors
■ Color images:
Color smoothing (low, medium, high)
Color anti-aliasing
Dark preservation
Normal or high quality

■ Collaborate on document images using annotations
■ Annotate multiple types of documents (i.e. PDF and TIFF) with the same annotation set
■ Permissions to view, edit, print and delete annotations
■ Move, resize and edit annotations
■ Create, save and easily edit annotations later
■ Hide & show annotations with a single click
■ Multiple annotation types
Boxes or ellipses - hollow or filled
Lines - with or without arrows
Highlighting - yellow transparent background
Stamp Annotations - rectangular or ellipse stamp annotations with customizable text and automatic date fill
Text - format font, size, color and much more
■ Associated notes - you can associate a note with the annotations above
■ Pop-up notes - a handy notepad icon opens and accepts large amounts of text, then returns to the small icon shape (simply click the icon to view the text)
■ Check for annotations - save time by switching off the annotation checking feature
■ Annotations can be saved locally and/or to the server
■ Send annotations to server, including secure servers
■ Samples included: CGI & ASP annotation server examples to facilitate deployment, allowing you to extend the capabilities of your web server to support annotation permissions. These samples provide a framework that can be customized to your organization's needs.
■ Hyperlink images, text, and websites
■ Hyperlink documents to other URLs to associate document images, such as diagrams, service instructions, parts manuals, engineering drawings, contracts, web site information

Manage User Permissions & Preferences
■ Configure and save preferences according to user needs, at either the administrator level or the user level
■ Flying magnifier - size and magnification factor
■ Types of image enhancements - apply to bitonal and color images independently
■ Initial style of display - (full image, full width, actual size) apply to bitonal and color images independently
■ Annotation settings - default color, line width, arrow style, font, etc.
■ Left mouse button actions:
Mark a selection
Zoom on selection
Hand panning
Flying magnifier
■ Reference window (Bird's Eye View)
■ Toolbar display - switch off/on
■ Proxy Settings - identify a proxy server to use when accessing annotations or image file lists on the web
■ Printing Preferences - identify how images should be printed (full image, actual size), activate accelerated print support, and specify header and footer text to be printed
■ Customize the toolbar based on the needs of users
■ Administrator can use embed tags, object tags and Image List Files to configure for different user groups
■ One version of the Prizm Viewer can serve different departments with differing web-based viewing needs

Magnify, Rotate, Navigate, & Mirror
■ Tools included to view finer detail of large images such as engineering drawings
■ Zoom in, zoom out at any increment (25% default, configurable)
■ Stretch box zooms on a selected portion of the image

Works just like a magnifying glass over paper to magnify the area directly beneath the magnifier tool
■ Bird's Eye View (reference window)
Locate your current position on the image while zoomed in on a particular area of the image

Scrollbars move you around on the zoomed image
Hand pan grabs the image and moves it around in the window
Rotate the image 90 clockwise or counterclockwise
Previous Page and Next Page traverse multi-page images
