SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Nov 19, 2009 -- Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC), a leader in viewing, collaboration and redaction technology, today announced the release of its new Brava!® Flash Viewer. Included in the Brava Enterprise 6.2 ActiveX version, the Brava Flash Viewer provides interactive document viewing for the Windows and Mac operating systems and a range of web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. Like Brava's ActiveX client, the Flash Viewer supports virtually any format, including documents, images, and even CAD drawings, and delivers them in a secure and highly streamlined interface.
The Brava Flash Viewer is the company's first foray into Rich Internet Application (RIA) offerings. It combines a simple interface with a highly interactive experience to make skimming through a document fast and easy. The interface supports a dynamic viewing mode that makes it possible to read through very large corporate documents in an eReader-like interface.
Adobe Flash is a ubiquitous, powerful graphics platform, making it an easy choice for customers looking for a document viewer with zero footprint on the end user machines. According to Gary Heath, CEO of IGC, "Rich Interface Application technologies like Flash will lead to new ways for people to interact with documents. They offer not only the opportunity to provide an enjoyable and interactive interface, but also a more consistent user experience across browser and hardware platforms, including mobile devices."
Heath explains, "We elected to use RIA technology like Flash over AJAX and Java Script because we plan to add more robust functionality to the Brava Flash Viewer in the near future." Heath notes that this premier version includes viewing only, but Brava Flash Viewer 1.1, scheduled for release in Q1 2010, will feature the ability to review annotations and offer different view modes and term-hit highlighting, among other enhancements.

Brava enables viewing, annotation, redaction and publishing of any file format, including office documents, image files and CAD drawings, all from a central, simple interface. Give users access to view the information they need without modifying, downloading or altering the original files. Brava is available as a desktop or a web-based enterprise application.
