ITEDO Software Releases New Graphics Viewer With WebCGM Support

Hennef/Millbrae, CA, USA. September 1, 2001.

ITEDO Software announces the availability of IsoView 3

IsoView 3 is the latest version of this worldwide leading viewing technology for vector graphics. It is available as an ActiveX control for usage within Microsoft Internet Explorer, VisualBasic applications, or other environments. IsoView 3 adds a wealth of new functionality to the IsoView product line, including support for WebCGM, the latest standard for CGM files on Internet pages.

"IsoView 3 opens the door into a new world for customers dealing with interactive vector graphics", said Dieter Weidenbrueck, CEO and founder of ITEDO Software. "The support for WebCGM and the ability to manipulate graphics at runtime allow for highly sophisticated, graphics-driven interactive manuals and catalogs. This results in easy-to-use deliverables raising end-user satisfaction at lower cost."

The IsoView product family consists of a class of intelligent viewers which can be used to view and print high quality vector graphics based on latest industry standard technologies such as CGM Version 4. This includes the integration in interactive electronic manuals (IETM) such as spare part and sales catalogs or maintenance manuals including the distribution on CD-ROM or over the Intra-/Internet.

IsoView supports high quality CGM vector graphics and handles graphical objects. Vector graphics allow to zoom into detailed views whereas raster graphics do not display usable detailed views of an illustration. IsoView supports major industry standards for documents. By using international standard based documents, users gain hard- and software independence over the entire life cycle of the documents.

IsoView 3 Licensing

The IsoView Distribution Kit contains the IsoView ActiveX Control as well as sample files and 30 days of e-mail support. The IsoView Distribution Kit lists for US$ 3,000.

The purchase of this kit entitles the customer to distribute an unlimited number of the contained viewer together with the respective electronic catalog or document.

A fully functional evaluation version of the IsoView Distribution Kit can be downloaded from ITEDO's web site at This version can be used to evaluate the full functionality of IsoView but must not be distributed.

The IsoView Distribution Kit targets service providers and companies who develop and distribute interactive catalogs to large audiences. In addition, all companies which develop and use complex information systems benefit from using IsoView as a graphic interface to those systems.
