Share This Post

Snowbound Software, the market leader in document viewing technology, today announced the release of VirtualViewer HTML5 4.3 for both Java and .NET, the latest version of the firm’s award-winning pure HTML5 document viewer. Version 4.3 introduces major workflow enhancements and collaboration tools, including annotation and redaction tagging, bookmarks, annotation indicators, and annotation commenting.

“This release of VirtualViewer version 4.3 provides users with tools that allow them to collaborate on documents with other users across different departments within their organization,” said Snowbound’s Chief Operations Officer, Mike Sabourin. “We are excited about the increased efficiency our customers will enjoy with these enhancements.”

Annotation and Redaction Tagging

New annotation and redaction tools allow multiple users to collaborate on a single annotation. Users are now able to assign a tag (e.g. “Social Security Number”) to each individual annotation or redaction to indicate to other users why the annotation or redaction was placed on the page.


The new bookmarks feature streamlines navigation within documents by providing users with the ability to create text bookmarks on pages via the thumbnail panel and also jump to a desired page via a bookmarks list.

Annotation Indicators and Navigation 

Indicators ensure more efficient collaboration as users can now navigate through only the annotated pages of a document, skipping pages with no annotations or stamps

Annotation Commenting 

This workflow collaboration enhancement allows users to communicate about a specific part of the document by allowing comments to be added to existing annotations. Date, time of the comment, and the commenter’s name are also listed.

Snowbound’s VirtualViewer HTML5 document viewer is a pure HTML document viewing solution enabling file retrieval through a universal web application. It does not require any client-side installation or plug-ins such as Flash, Adobe Reader, Java applets, or Office. VirtualViewer HTML5 works with any standard browser, provides on-the-go mobile document viewing, and delivers flexible cross-platform support. It is available for both Java and .NET.
