VirtualViewer HTML5 gives Alfresco users a faster and more robust document viewing solution by replacing the default PDF.js viewer.

The viewer can also be opened as a standalone client in a new tab or window if needed.

It provides a rich set of reusable Angular based UI components and services, command-line tooling and JavaScript and rest APIs that make it easy for developers to create responsive web applications that can be deployed and embedded on top of the platform. Snowbound’s connector for Alfresco makes it simple for users to manage their workflow with sophisticated tools such as split and merge, annotate and redact, and document comparison.
