Who Its For
Everyone who needs to track multimedia files. Anyone with a digital camera
will find iView Multimedia essential but it is also designed for
newspapers, DTP pros, photographers, publishing professionals, scientists,
educators, students, doctors, cinematographers, cartoonists, illustrators,
cd producers, real estate agents, technologists, magazine designers,
multimedia producers, web publishers, consultants, database developers,
designers, musicians, sound pro's, singers, artists, and complete and total
beginners. iView Multimedia is for anyone who wants to find and immediately
use a multimedia file.

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 or PageMaker 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 the finder
- 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. Rand Miller 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. Martin
Shovel

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. Rick Tracewell

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. Tereza
Snyder

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! Brian Doucet

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
Conrad Koerper

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. Mike Nikolin

iView is the BEST (I've tried them all) keep up the improvements. Ronald Sager

iView Multimedia is amazing--what a tremendous help to a graphic artist.
How do you get it to go so fast?! Jane Prince Smith

iView Multimedia is absolutely brilliant! Lots of praise at the price and
the quality of the product. Colin Smedley
