BulletViewTIFF Client

ViewTIFF Client
The ViewTIFF applet is used for viewing black and white, and gray scale SCANSAFE image documents with any HTML 3.01 or higher browser. The applet supports TIFF decompression, display, zoom, rotate, scale to gray, black & white view, and printing to the OpenWeb server Que. To speed the viewing process, the ViewTIFF applet decompresses the image on the fly while transmitting the remainder of the file to decrease total viewing time. The ViewTIFF applet retrieves images from the ScanSafe server through a specified set of index parameters that include the image number and location of the image, whether it is on local or removable media. To retrieve images, computers are required to have the ViewTIFF plug-in loaded that enables a "secure" connection to the server, preventing others on the network from Browsing images. Further security features on the server include user authentication, and user logs for tracking use of the system and image documents.

Both Intel 'II' and Motorola 'MM' style byte ordering in the header are supported. Bit ordering with the image data from high bit to low bit (TIFF Standard) is recommended. The TIFF Spec does provide a FillOrder tag for reverse bit ordering but recommends not using reverse bit ordering or the tag. ViewTIFF does support this feature, but other TIFF viewers may not, so deploy with caution.
