ZyImage 98 can highlight key words on images of original documents without lengthy and
error-prone optical character recognition.
ZyImage 98 users can search large volumes of original documents and sidestep OCR, said
Jon Karlin, president of ZyLab International Inc. of Gaithersburg, Md. A Pentium PC can
process about 8,000 pages per day using ZyImage 98, he said.
Once input, the document images are searchable on Web sites, CD-ROM or DVD-ROM via
Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator browsers.
ZyLab 98 uses the same image viewer that Microsoft licenses from Wang Laboratories Inc.
for Microsoft Windows 95 and NT 4.0, Karlin said. The package has a wizard for job setup
and a status monitor.
ZyImage 98 can integrate with other vendors products that lack Web integration,
such as clipping software and fax servers, he said.
ZyImage 98 runs under Windows 95 and NT Workstation 4.0. It can handle Hypertext Markup
Language, Rich Text Format, Microsoft Word 7.0 and 8.0, and WordPerfect 8 formats, among
ZyLab users include the Army, Navy, FBI and White House. Agencies can buy ZyLab
products through the companys General Services Administration schedule contract and
from the National Institutes of Health ImageWorld indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity
contract, Karlin said.
ZyImage Web Server for Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 starts at $10,000. An unlimited license
for ZyImage 98 is $4,795.
