Accusoft upgrades SharePoint document viewer

Accusoft has released Prizm Content Connect for SharePoint V. 7.2. Among other new features, the service pack update for the company's popular embeddable document viewer for SharePoint environments now supports enhanced digital rights management (DRM) in SharePoint and saving multiple named annotations.

The SharePoint document viewer enables users to view, convert and collaborate on more than 300 document and other file types hosted in a SharePoint repository. Accusoft explains the viewer software runs entirely on the server, requiring no ActiveX controls or other special software on the client other than Flash. Version 7.2 supports mobile browsers with Flash installed.

Prizm Content Connect for SharePoint V. 7.2 includes full support for SharePoint document versioning, which enables SharePoint users to store, track and restore items in a list and files in a library as they are updated. The company explains users of the new release can view and collaborate on multiple versions of a document, keeping each version's DRM protections intact, and can create and manage multiple named annotations per document version. They can load and save annotations by names and by version, and save one, multiple or no annotations through Prizm Content Connect for SharePoint's DRM tools.

Other enhancements in Version 7.2 include the ability to make annotations even without Prizm Content Connect's DRM module, tools to block “download a copy” and “send to actions” in a document library's ribbon and “edit control block” and an improved experience for high-trust users not subject to DRM enforcement.

A SharePoint 2013-compatible version of Prizm Content Connect is now available as a beta. Contact accusoft for more information.
