EASY View – Bright prospects


EASY View is the technical component for faithful and fast representation of documents of a wide range of file formats. This technology works server-based, therefore eliminating the need for additional installation effort. Whether it’s reading, printing, scaling, or thumbnail generation – EASY View is the viewing partner for more than 300 file formats.

Faithful representation at minimum expenditure

Documents and attachments to documents frequently come in a wide range of partially exotic file formats. To display them requires the corresponding traditional applications, which must be installed separately on each client. This involves great administrative effort, often causing additional licensing costs.
A single technical component is capable of resolving this issue: EASY View facilitates faithful and rapid representation of a wide range of file formats, with rendering taking place on the server side here. This allows representing documents converted to representable formats in the Web client and on phone-based devices, eliminating the need for installing additional software.

Turning 300 formats into a single one: EASY view, the “all-in-one reader”

EASY View converts more than 300 different formats, some of which are seldom used, including for example Microsoft Office formats, Open Office formats, image formats, e-mail formats, and AutoCAD. But it provides configurable additional adapters also for formats that are not supported. EASY View also supports batch conversions. The customizable mechanisms for load-balancing guarantee high processing speed.
The target format to which documents are converted can also be selected and defined from various formats: PDF, JPEG, PNG, or TIFF.

More functions

EASY View allows you to not only view but also print almost any file formats: EASY View simply provides graphical annotations and scales, e.g. size variations or rotation. Moreover, EASY View is suited for generating thumbnails.
