What It Does
iView Multimedia provides the easiest and most powerful way to view and
organize all the media on your Mac OS computer(s). iView Multimedia is a
tool to help you to do less and accomplish more. It lets the professional
focus on their creative work and not on learning a new piece of software.
If you are tired of searching mountains of disks and CD’s trying to unearth
that special photo, QTVR or clip art it is time to try something that
instantly saves you and your business time and energy.
iView can act as your digital image database, your karaoke jukebox, your
sound library, your scrapbook of clip art, your PhotoShop organizer, your
movie database, your font collection, your quicktimeVR gallery, your
animation museum, your Illustrator archive, your Freehand album and now
your Canvas and Quark portfolio.
iView Multimedia is a new type of application one that was created from the
ground up to provide ease of use and power while working with all kinds of
multimedia files. It combines:
– a well researched, clear and simple interface,
– a small application footprint,
– background processing,
– tight integration with the most popular media editing applications, html
authoring systems, web browsers, and word processors,
– minimal use of your desktop space, as most of its functions can be
accomplished within a single window
– uses very little disk space to catalog media files.
Underneath the simplicity of the interface lies a powerful multimedia
engine that will let you:
– import most popular MacOS/PC/SGI Web media formats,
– instant playback (Movies, QTVR, animation, sound) in any view,
– with four full featured, easily customizable views of your media that use
natural methods of organizing your media, both within iView’s window and
– fast access to media both inside your computer and from the internet.
– export batch processing (movie making, html gallery building, etc..)
– batch process adding of ANPA annotation info to files
– batch name change (very handy for digital cameras)
– printing of reports, images and thumbnail posters.
– slide shows with movies, sound and images
– highest quality color and sound.
Catalogs can be searched and saved on your hard disk. A catalog can also
display/print thumbnail images from volumes that may not be mounted. iView
will let you view the images and prompt you to insert the volume to
retrieve an image when needed. These catalogs can be emailed to others for
viewing with or without the original media.
IMPORTANT: CD ROM publishers, photographers and others can burn iView
Multimedia on their CD’s and include it with their catalogs royalty free .
Digital camera manufacturers are also welcome to include iView Multimedia
free with their cameras.
iView Multimedia makes extensive use of drag and drop which makes it a
pleasure to use with the finder, Photoshop and many other applications. In
fact, everything about iView is designed to be simple, useful and
intuitive. iView eliminates tedious repetitive work and increases your
ability to get the job done. It makes image reuse and playback quick and
easy. Now individuals as well as publishers, designers, pre-press operators
and multi-media programmers will never have to search through stacks of
Zip/Jaz/SyQuest back-ups for files ever again.
iView Multimedia costs $25 and upgrades (which come about every two months)
are free. iViewXT which allows iView Multimedia to read and catalog Quark
files is $48. Site Licenses are available. We also can tailor/program iView
Multimedia for special projects. Please contact us for details.
What People Say About iView
I’ve always preferred bits to atoms. But my Mac started
looking like my photo shoebox – stuff everywhere. I don’t
need overkill. I simply need an easy-to-use, powerful,
“shoebox” organizer for my photorealistic renderings,
hi-res textures, and even digital photos of my family
vacation. iView Multimedia is my solution.
Co-creator of MYST and RIVEN
I’m a freelance cartoonist. My work appears in
advertising, design, magazines, books etc. When I
discovered iView Multimedia, I told a fellow cartoonist
about it and, despite his already owning a market leading
commercial package, he immediately registered iView
because it impressed him so much. We both think that Yan
and Julian have created a strong and attractive design,
and we like the simplicity and ease of use of the
programme. Your publicity should stress the amazing
quality of the printed thumbnail catalogues – a factor
that would certainly be a major selling point to
professionals in my industry. In fact, having looked at
various similar programmes, including some of the market
leaders, I am convinced that the print quality of your
catalogues is the best I have seen.
Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy IView
Multimedia. It’s been a tremendous help in organizing the
thousands of digital photos taken at all of the 1997
Oakland Raiders games. Great job.
In my work as a digital illustrator and programmer, I find
it particularly useful, while working on the next image,
to keep an iView Multimedia document that displays thumbnail
pics of the rest open on the other monitor. It’s so easy to
inspect the full-size image without having to open
another window in an image editor. It’s evident that you
guys are impressively creative software developers! Keep
up the good work.
I’ve just downloaded your shareware ‘iView Multimedia’ and
it is great! You have done a great job with this program. I had
been looking for a graphic organizer/database for about 5
months and last night decided to scan the shareware
goodies at shareware.com where I came across it. Living in
Malaysia (originally from Louisiana and have been here for
9 years) it is very hard and sometimes next to impossible
to find Mac support and software. I usually have to swing
down to Singapore to shop for the Mac goodies. You’ve
saved me a trip!
Thanks for iView Multimedia is absolutely the greatest
viewing and cataloging app I have ever used. I couldn’t be
happier with it and your support. A brilliant piece of
work. I use it daily.
Many, Many Thanks
Thank You, Thank You, Thank you ! I’m a student, an
independent product reviewer, and starting my own
business, so the time and work your program will save has
taken a big weight off my shoulders. I have a multimedia
presentation to produce for some big companys and have
looked at several works promising much, but comming up
short. Your appeal to the public for input and to
improving a great product is all to rare. This attention
to your customer needs will insure your success. Your
site, and method of doing business is very refreshing. If
I do review your products in the future I’ll contact you.
As for iView Multimedia, a (10) with 5 mice. Thanks Again.
iView is the BEST (I’ve tried them all) keep up the improvements.
iView Multimedia is amazing–what a tremendous help
