Time testing? On some 1.5 meg TIFF files, it took the Wang viewer three minutes. It took SwiftView three SECONDS. Not to mention if you want to scroll or zoom, the Image 95 viewer takes another full minute, where with SwiftView we were flipping through pages, zooming in and out. SwiftView's open, it's easy and it'll save us a lot of money. If things that have to be made available to the public can all be put on-line WITHOUT CONVERSION, we'll be uptown on this one.
We'd been looking for a multi-page tiff viewer for some time with little success. The ones we tried were complex programs with lots of options that we didn't need. SwiftView, on the other hand, is elegant and VERY fast.
SwiftView was chosen because of its very fast startup on HP-UX UNIX compared with other viewers like the "Imageview" by HP, XV, and Spicer Imagenation, and it was one of the only viewers that interprets the TIFF header orientation field correctly (one of the microfilm scanners scans the images from left to right, not from top to bottom). We are generating a CD with HTML files and TIFF images from our PDM vault. We will use the SwiftView plugin to view the images on the CD together with Netscape or MS web browsers.
Everything goes well with the SV plug-in. I've tested about a dozen plug-ins for TIFF and no one else was suitable.
Native DXF viewing wasn't acceptable for the whole building: the translation just wasn't clean enough. HPGL and HPGL/2 are a much better alternative. Plus SwiftView has great TIFF viewing abilities. The Wang viewer just couldn't cut it, it was too slow to render, too slow to pan and zoom and it caused some real DLL headaches.
Other viewers have a plethora of buttons that scare the hell out of our customers. SwiftView functions well and is unintimidating. It's the best product for our system.
Kodak Imaging takes a long time just to open a TIFF file. SwiftView is a hundred times faster.
We've been using viewing apps like Spicer Imagenation at this site, but we need to provide access to our HPGL and TIFF data for other sites on our corporate intranet and SwiftView is so far the best. Some of the other plugins I tried had terrible performance problems and some of them simply didn't work on our files!
The TIFF file we needed was on a web site, and when I opened the link, a page says, 'You need an image viewer that can support TIFF files, click here to download one.' That image viewer is the Wang Image Viewer - and its installation is a nightmare so I found yours.
I'm very impressed with the speed of SwiftView. We doubleclick in Explorer and there's the file! It brought compressed TIFF images of our D-size engineering drawings up WITHIN ONE SECOND on my 166 MHz Pentium. This is a very impressive speed in comparison to other viewer software we've tested, like WangImage, AutoDesk Viewer, Paint Shop Pro and some others. We have twenty thousand drawings scanned into compressed TIFF 4 format, about 500k to 1Mb each. This program is ideal for quick viewing and searching.
SwiftView is simple and basic to use. It's going to replace what we're using now, which is two viewers that together can't do all that SwiftView does. One of those viewers works fine for AutoCAD drawings, but it doesn't support TIFFs - and we're scanning lots of legacy drawings.
We're using SwiftView on filings, motions, judges' responses and appeals, all scanned into TIFF. We compared SwiftView to eight other software programs and liked you best.
We recommend SwiftView to all our customers who need a fast response on their TIFFs. Neither the Wang TIFF viewer nor its plug-in version from Kodak brings drawings up as quickly as SwiftView, which pops it right up and lets you get to the details instantly. There's no other viewer as fast as SwiftView.
We were testing SwiftView. When executed with all our switches and parameters, it seems to be doing a very good job. I have worked with so many third party products, and most of them have failed at one point or the other. SwiftView has given a very positive result so far. It has passed all our stress tests. I am very satisfied with its performance.
I'm in my final year doing my degree through University of Wales. I received some lecture documents that were scanned in 'tiff' format and I couldn't open them properly with all the other imaging programs. A fellow student then told me to download SwiftView, as it works the best. It's working like a dream.
SwiftView's working great. The application is an accounting program designed for farmers and small businesses. The latest thing is being able to print W4, I9s, etc., for employers. PDF files were too big and a there's a lot of overhead with Adobe Reader. (We couldn't send 10+MB Acrobats plus 4+MB PDFs to over 200 clients.) We already use SwiftView to view log files from our server for report purposes, and saw that SwiftView reads TIFF or JPEG files. So I found a converter program that takes PDF files and converts them to TIFF or JPEG. Now we do that, then use SwiftView to read the TIFF documents.
We have about 300,000 HPGL and TIFF files online for Intranet users to access. SwiftView works much better than JVue, and AutoVue is more expensive
