Informative Graphics Adds New SharePoint 2010 Ties

Informative Graphics Corp. (IGC) is readying updates to its tools for viewing, collaborating on, and redacting documents which, among other additions, feature improved integration with Microsoft SharePoint 2010.

IGC will officially launch Brava Enterprise 7 and Redact-It Enterprise 7 next week, and plans to ship the updates in early November, an IGC spokesperson told

The company announced it was working on integration between its products and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) SharePoint 2010 last spring. SharePoint 2010was released by Microsoft in mid-May, along with Office 2010.

“With SharePoint 2010 and Silverlight, administrators immediately increase usability for mobile users by offering high resolution, streamable views of documents and even CAD drawings,” an IGC statement said at the time.

With Brava Enterprise 7, users have the ability to view almost all file formats in SharePoint. They can also use Brava’s viewer to view thumbnails as well as entire document previews right on search results pages.

Additionally, Brava Enterprise 7 highlights search terms in documents, as well as performing advanced searches from results pages. Finally, users can embed document viewers into pages using standard Web parts, according to an IGC statement released Wednesday.

“Brava [Enterprise 7] allows users to easily interact with documents anywhere, anytime using only their web browser. Brava adds key document-centric workflow actions including the ability to add stamps, create threaded discussions and other markups, publish documents to TIFF or PDF, and redact sensitive content and privacy information,” the new statement continued.

Meanwhile, IGC is also readying its version 7 update to Redact-It for release. One key new feature enables document redaction to be incorporated into SharePoint workflows, while another lets users automatically search documents, including entire libraries of documents, for sensitive or privacy information.

Redact-It Enterprise 7 also adds pattern matching technology designed to automatically remove privacy data, the statement said.

Redact-It users can also clone document libraries, letting contributors access native files, while giving consumers of content access to the clones via PDF or IGC’s own secure format.

IGC is previewing Brava Enterprise 7 and Redact-It Enterprise 7 at the SPTechCon SharePoint conferencein Boston this week.
