ISIS Papyrus is pleased to announce the update of its Papyrus AFP Viewer Freeware, 7.1 SP9 (build number, which is available now for download from the ISIS Papyrus website.

It offers a completely reworked user interface which follows the ISIS Papyrus user interface flat design concept. Moreover, ISIS Papyrus is committed to continue the AFP Viewer plugin support for IE and Firefox that support NPAPI. As an alternative, with V7.1 SP9 we offer the installation of the Papyrus AFP Viewer Freeware as a Windows application. The AFP Viewer application supports AFP documents with external AFP resources in order to reduce the actual document size to a minimum.

CEO Annemarie Pucher says: We are very happy to support the AFP community with the free AFP Viewer, which is unsurpassed in its WYSIWYG AFP viewing and printing capabilities.

Roberto Anzola, VP Solutions of ISIS Papyrus Group and Board Director of the AFP Consortium (AFPC), says: ISIS Papyrus is continuing its dedication to steer the Advanced Function Presentation (AFP) architecture into a fully fledged and open document standard. Its independence from specific applications and devices makes it the first choice for any business document and information presentation including also embedded PDF and video resources.

Creation of New Standards Organization – ISIS Papyrus Joins Forces With Major Industry Players in Continued Innovation Endeavor

In February, the Advanced Function Presentation Consortium (AFPC) has become an incorporated non-profit organization. It also celebrates its fifth year of operation focused on promoting industry innovation, interoperability between its 30-plus members and collaboration on mission-critical standards. The group was formed by leaders in the print industry in October 2004 to focus on developing the AFP Color Management Architecture (ACMA), an open standard to drive accurate and consistent color in variable data printing. This focus was expanded in September 2006 to encompass the complete AFP architecture. AFP is a presentation architecture that provides for document and information presentation independent of specific applications and devices. This technology is particularly important in driving new industry initiatives like TransPromo and in the creation of mission-critical documents such as bills, statements, and policies. AFP has powerful advantages over other print architectures like PostScript as it supports very high print speeds, output integrity, and centralized, automated server-based management.
The leading role of ISIS Papyrus in these technologies was recognized by electing Roberto Anzola, head of R&D, as member of the board of directors who will run the newly-formed body.
