The HTML5 document viewer market is getting crowded as companies compete for developer mindshare. Accusoft hopes its latest release helps it stand out from the pack. Indeed, the company has already carved out a niche in the legal technology market with its advanced e-discovery and other document review applications.
Accusoft just released Prizm Content Connect v9.3, the latest version of its HTML5 document viewer. The new version does carry some significant improvements, including searchable markups, security-boosting watermarking, a local file viewer and other upgrades.
"Forward-thinking companies today aren't really asking all that much," a spokesperson at Accusoft kidded in a blog post. "All they want is a fast, highly secure way to share virtually any document, image or message file on any device, desktop or mobile, in high-fidelity, and to empower employees, customers or clients not only to search, annotate, redact and sign documents, but also to collaborate productively with those markings."
Attractive to Attorneys
That's just what Accusoft claims to offer with Prizm Content Connect, a scalable, customizable application for viewing and sharing almost any document, image or message file type through the browser on most devices securely. Prizm Content Connect lets you share without any external players, plug-ins or apps and even auto-adapts its high-fidelity document display and navigation controls to the screen size of the device you are using to optimize viewing.
Accusoft has seen strong traction in the legal market software industry. Developers and in-house application builders for legal departments integrate Prizm Content Connect as a viewing component for e-discovery, case review and other applications that demand, secure display of documents on any device. Prizm Content Connect offers collaborative tools like advanced search, annotation, redaction and electronic document signing.
Attorneys that use a legal application incorporating Prizm Content Connect can not only securely review, mark up and approve documents in their native file formats, but also tap into a consistent set of collaboration tools that work the same way regardless of the file type or user's choice of device.
Beyond Legal Applications
Prizm Content Connect promises security and backs it up with 256-bit AES encryption, configurable user permissions and an architecture that does not require the original source document to download to the user's device. This HTML5 document viewer also lets a developer's customers apply customizable watermarks to documents for another layer of security protection against unauthorized use.
Additional new Prizm Content Connect features include the ability to print comment and redaction reasons and to embed working hyperlinks into annotations. There's also "polyline" annotations that let users connect a comment to a multi-line shape defining an irregular region or a page.
Accusoft has made strong inroads in a competitive HTML5 document viewer market. Beyond its niche in legal technology, Yahoo, medical imaging companies, and aerospace companies are also turning to Prizm Content Connect.
