Informative Graphics to Release Brava! Desktop -- Multi-Format View and Markup, with CSF Publishing; Beta Download Now Available, Release Date Set for Mid-Q2 2004

PHOENIX—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 18, 2004— Informative Graphics Corp. (IGC), a leader in Web document and collaboration technology, announced that it will offer a desktop version of its Brava!(R) view, markup and collaboration software. The desktop offering is designed to fill out the line of Brava visualization products, which to date includes Brava Enterprise, Brava Desktop, Brava Reader and Brava SDK (Software Developer's Kit).

Brava visualization has been adopted by the world's top project and asset management online service providers, such as Meridian Project Systems(R), PrimeContract from Primavera and Constructware(R) (visit for a complete list). Brava also provides premiere visualization for top enterprise content management solutions such as Documentum(R) and Open Text(R).

Brava Desktop is an easy-to-use Windows executable and ActiveX component that views, marks up, and prints native document, image and CAD drawing formats as well as IGC's content sealed format (CSF). Brava Desktop can convert any supported native format to CSF, which incorporates IGC's Visual Rights(TM) persistent security. Visual Rights security controls include encryption, password protection, onscreen and print banners, print and other feature restrictions, and more. Brava Desktop also can burn markups and redaction areas (blocked out content) into a CSF file. CSF and marked up CSF files can be viewed with the freely distributable Brava Reader.

A trial beta version of Brava Desktop can be downloaded at

"Our objective in developing Brava Desktop is to complete a full spectrum of content publishing and visualization with Visual Rights capabilities. Our Net-It content publishing products provide CSF creation from within office and CAD applications, while Brava Desktop offers CSF creation without the native application, giving customers the added value of CSF publishing and native format viewing in a single package. Brava Desktop is designed to be simple to use, highly accurate and blazingly fast for CAD and image content," said Gary Heath, IGC's president and CEO.
