Worldwide Computer Products News-14 January 2009-Open Text launches new versions of Open Text Desktop Viewer and Open Text Thin Client Viewer(C)1995-2009 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Open Text Corporation (Nasdaq:OTEX) (TSX:OTC), a provider of enterprise content management (ECM), announced on Tuesday (13 January) the latest versions of Open Text Desktop Viewer and Open Text Thin Client Viewer, with expanded support for new file formats.

According to the company, Open Text Desktop and Thin Client Viewer solutions offer viewing and markup capabilities for a wide range of file formats without the need to have the originating application installed on users' desktops. The solutions can handle the majority of document viewing requirements, including native file viewing, 3D CAD model viewing, direct scanning and clean-up of paper documents, as well as document markup and revision. The new versions introduce support for a number of new file formats, including Excel 2007, Solidworks 2008, AutoCAD 2009 and Auto Desk Inventor 2009.

The solutions enable users to: view, review and markup for on-line document processing; access business and technical documents and drawings from across locations; add and manage markups and annotations; protect intellectual property and information with controlled document access functions; as well as prepare and protect private information for compliant public disclosure.

The releases demonstrate the company's commitment to development and innovation of content viewing solutions from recently acquired Spicer Corporation, the original developer of these applications, formerly known as Imagenation and ViewCafe. In addition to continuing to extend stand-alone viewer capabilities, the company said it plans to integrate content viewing and markup functionality into upcoming versions of the Open Text ECM Suite.

No pricing details were disclosed.
