IGC's Brava Enterprise and Brava Desktop products provide view, annotation, redaction and secure publishing capabilities for a number of file formats like TIFF, PDF, CSF, Microsoft Office formats and native CAD drawing formats such as AutoCAD(R) DWG and DWF. Informative Graphics plans to provide annotation and redaction of XPS files in the next release of Brava.
Brava enables users to view, compare, annotate, measure and redact (block out) XPS document information. XPS files can then be published to Adobe PDF, TIFF, Autodesk DWF or IGC's secure CSF. Brava also opens more than 150 file formats that can be saved to XPS and then viewed directly by Internet Explorer 7 in Windows Vista or by the Microsoft XML Paper Specification Viewer on most other Microsoft Windows platforms.
"Brava goes beyond simple translation; redaction and smart annotation give users the option of effectively using XPS in ECM processes, such as workflow and document review, especially when disparate file content is present," said Andy Simonds, group program manager of the Digital Documents Platform and Solutions Group at Microsoft. "Informative Graphics' Brava and its support for XPS is a great example of how the industry can build on the Windows platform to provide solutions in the ECM space."
Informative Graphics plans to optionally offer server-side and batch conversion of native files, bulk redaction and annotation burn-in to XPS as part of its Net-It Enterprise and Net-It Central content publishing solutions.
"Informative Graphics sees XPS as an emerging format for sharing document and drawing content. With Brava integrations to Microsoft Office SharePoint(R) Server 2007, Microsoft Office Infopath 2007, Microsoft Office Groove 2007 and Windows Rights Management Services, as well as our annotation integrations with enterprise content management offerings like EMC Documentum(R), Open Text(R), Interwoven and ColumbiaSoft, we feel Brava is well positioned to augment XPS's value," said Gary Heath, president and CEO of IGC. "Our products enable users to access the wide spectrum of document, imaging and design content that exists in an enterprise environment. We make sharing and collaborating on all content unified, easy, consistent and secure for all skill levels."
