Virtual Multi-Page Document

  1. Image List Files offer the convenience of a multi-page TIFF file
  2. Create "virtual documents" from individual images so you can treat them as multi-page images
  3. Quickly view a series of documents as if it were a single multi-page TIFF file
  4. Batch print large collections of documents without having to view each document
  5. Customizable lists of images mimics a multi-page image file that can be paged through
  6. Page through using:
    bulletNext/previous page
    bulletFirst/last page
    bulletGo to a specific page
  7. Delivers all the convenience of a multi-page TIFF file without the bandwidth requirements of downloading multi-page TIFF files

Large Image Support

  1. The Prizm Viewer has long been known for its excellent support of large images, especially those used in engineering environments.
    bulletHandles images as large as 50 x 333
    bulletCaches images (partially or completely) for instantaneous rescaling
    bulletHandles up to 4000 tiles of different compression types and dimensions, including null tiles
    bulletBirds Eye View (reference window) indicates your current position on the image while remaining zoomed in to a particular area (see example)


    bulletMagnifying Glass lets you dynamically magnify a particular area of an image (great for tracing wires)
    bulletPrint Acceleration can print large size engineering drawings to Postscript printers up to 80% faster that the same files printed through a standard Windows driver
    bulletOptional 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.
    bulletSegmented printing support allows users to print extremely large engineering drawings over multiple pages

Enhance Image Display Quality

  1. Improve both color and bitonal (black/white) images
  2. Smooth out the blockiness that often occurs with highly-magnified images, over compressed, or poorly scanned documents
  3. Bitonal images:
    bulletScale-to-gray (4 shades or 16 shades)
    bulletDraft, normal, or high quality
    bulletInvert colors
  4. Color images:
    bulletColor smoothing (low, medium, high)
    bulletColor anti-aliasing
    bulletDark preservation

    Normal or high quality





    Notice the blockiness of poorly scanned or low resolution images (BEFORE). Scale-to-gray smoothes out blockiness to improve readability (AFTER).


  1. Collaborate on document images using annotations
  2. Annotate multiple types of documents (i.e. PDF and TIFF) with the same annotation set
  3. Permissions to view, edit, print and delete annotations
  4. Move, resize and edit annotations
  5. Create, save and easily edit annotations later
  6. Hide & show annotations with a single click
  7. Multiple annotation types
    bulletBoxes or ellipses - hollow or filled
    bulletLines - with or without arrows
    bulletHighlighting - yellow transparent background
    bulletStamp Annotations - rectangular or ellipse stamp annotations with customizable text and automatic date fill
    bulletText - format font, size, color and much more
  8. Associated notes - you can associate a note with the annotations above
  9. 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)
  10. Check for annotations - save time by switching off the annotation checking feature
  11. Annotations can be saved locally and/or to the server
  12. Send annotations to server, including secure servers
  13. 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.


  14. Hyperlink images, text, and websites
  15. Hyperlink documents to other URLs to associate document images, such as diagrams, service instructions, parts manuals, engineering drawings, contracts, web site information
