The Black Ice Software Tiff Viewer Chrome/Edge extension includes some exciting new features!

For developers and System Integrators that are embedding the Tiff Viewer Chrome/Edge extension into their web application iframe, we have improved the User Interface to be more responsive and to adapt to the iframe window size.

Black Ice Software added a messaging API for developers to identify if the Tiff Viewer Chrome/Edge extension is installed on a user’s system. This is beneficial for developers, so they can determine in their web application if the Tiff Viewer Chrome extension is installed before initiating the document retrieval.

For System Integrators and Administrators a new useful feature is the customizable user interface for the Tiff Viewer Chrome/Edge extension.
One can enable/disable features such as OCR, Annotation, Save, Print, etc… by hiding the command Icon from the Tool Bar. Administrators can also customize command icon tooltip text labels for users or create German, Spanish, French, Chinese language tooltips. The Tiff Viewer Chrome/Edge extension can be customized through an XML configuration file. The XML configuration file can be used with an MSI installer to preconfigure the Tiff Viewer Chrome/Edge extension.

For End-Users we added the Thumbnail Only View mode, a simple but very useful feature for easier and faster navigation. This is beneficial if a user has a very large document and is searching for a specific page. The fastest most efficient way to view and find the page is in Thumbnail View.

Complete MODI Replacement!

With Microsoft Office Document Imaging (MODI) reaching End of Life, it is no longer consider to be HIPAA compliant. The Black Ice Tiff Viewer is capable of viewing, editing and printing scanned/faxed TIFF images and other image types, resulting in an ideal substitute for MODI. When paired with the Black Ice Printer Drivers users can convert any file format to Tiff, PDF and more. The evaluation copy of both solutions is fully functional for 15 days with free priority technical support during your evaluation. Once the demo period is over you may contact our sales team for information on how to obtain a license.
