NeptuneLabs FSI Viewer
is a web based viewer for high resolution images. It enables internet users
to magnify image sections or view objects from different viewing angles or
in different states, requiring low bandwidth only.
This makes product presentations more haptical, more appealing. FSI Viewer
is based on Adobe Flash™ Player on the client-side and accesses
image data provided by single source imaging servers.
These servers provide scaled and compressed image data on-demand based on
high resolution source images.
Most innovative viewers on the internet require special browser plug-ins
that the user is forced to download and install. This is why the
penetration of most of these viewers is comparably low.
FSI Viewer on the other hand is based on the most popular browser plug-in
worldwide, the Adobe Flash™ Player. The penetration of the Flash
Player exceeds 99% of all internet users in Europe, USA, Canada and Asia
The default setup of the most popular browsers already contains the Adobe Flash Player.
Integrating FSI Viewer into web pages is as easy as integrating a standard
Flash program into a HTML page. This is why FSI Viewer is compatible to
almost every content management system currently available.
Even presenting huge amounts of images with FSI Viewer of FSI Showcase using
databases and server-side scripts is very easy.
The self explaining user interface of the viewer with tool tips for each
interface element enables even inexperienced users to unfold the
functionality of FSI Viewer within seconds.
The viewer constantly reacts on user input and the progress bar informs the
user about the current progress of image detail loading.
Moving the mouse inside the image area, the user can select an image
section to magnify, rotate or pan the image depending on the selected mouse
mode. The integrated navigator window provides an overview and displays the
image section currently viewed.
- Clear layout of all interface elements
- Custom skins available
- Navigator window displaying the current image section
- Animated zoom transitions
- User interface can be hidden to maximize the image area
- Optional maximum magnification

FSI Viewer is configured using XML configuration files or HTTP
queries. With FSI Parameters, the viewer can be customized in many aspects,
like menu alignment and layout, visibility of the navigator
window, image quality, animation speed, image quality and many more. Additionally FSI Viewer
can be extended with FSI Plug-ins
FSI Viewer has been designed for use with different user interface
languages. Languages packs can be included at runtime just like FSI
plug-ins. Currently FSI Viewer ships with the listed languages.
Additional languages are available on request.
FSI Viewer and Dynamic Imaging Servers are highly scalable. This allows
using FSI Viewer with small amounts of images as well as using FSI Viewer
in high load environments, like in online shops with thousands of images.
For high load environments the new NeptuneLabs
FSI Cache Application is
recommended. It serves as a caching proxy and reduces the load on the
imaging server, minimizes client connection time and therefore enhances
the overall performance of your imaging solution.
