All new from the inside: The PDF Web Viewer

Recent years have seen a tremendous increase in the use of web browsers as a new standard client platform, being available on almost any device and any operating system. Three years ago, we have responded to the need of viewing PDF documents in a JavaScript application with the introduction of the 3-Heights® PDF Web Viewer.

Although this product is still supported, it is time for a new generation: The 4-Heights® PDF Web Viewer.

While on the surface, both products appear similar, the inside has changed substantially. We have also added a few features and will continue to do so:

  • New rendering engine: The 4-Heights® generation rendering is even faster and more accurate in displaying complicated PDF pages.

  • Printing: The new PDF Web Viewer features basic support for printing PDF files directly from the web browser.

  • Annotations: Like its predecessor, the PDF Web Viewer has many functionalities for adding and editing PDF annotations, such as text highlights, sticky notes, or stamps.

  • Viewing-only version: For customers, who do not use annotations, we can offer a more affordable viewing-only version.

The PDF Web Viewer faces an exciting roadmap with features such as filling form fields and improved support of FDF files. Stay tuned for further releases!
