Webdoxx PDF Viewer

The Webdoxx PDF Viewer from Drumlin Security is a fast, high quality pure-HTML5 viewer for statically converted documents. It supports a wide range of functionality, as described below, and can be tailored to meet client requirements. As standard on the webdoxx pdf2html5.com service there are four display formats (complete - a continuous vertical scrolling format, simple - a slighter cleaner version of the complete format, presentation - a page-based format and magazine which provides for 2-page display with flipping. A slide-based format is also available. In all case standard dynamic overlays are provided, with selectable content. Typically the watermarking is an overlay on the display window (viewable area) and can include a variety of dynamic data fields (e.g. date/time, IPAddress of the user, name of user, static text etc.). A sample page with the sidebar opened is shown below - one of many display format options:
