Comprehensive conversion and publishing technology for SharePoint

Free production license for up to 100 documents

(PresseBox) (Stuttgart, ) Coextant Systems International today announced the release of a completely new version of its flagship product Hyper.Net 5 that has been rearchitected and tightly integrated with Microsoft SharePoint.

The new version, named Hyper.Net (TM) SharePoint Edition, automatically converts Microsoft Office, Open Office and any other documents stored in SharePoint document libraries into all of the online formats organizations typically wish to deploy to endusers (PDF, PDF/A, multitopic hypertext, HTML, MP3, Flash, XML, etc.) and publishes the resulting data into WCMS page libraries as SharePointnative content.

Developers are enabled to use standard SharePoint tools, techniques and Web parts to quickly meet both simple and demanding online publishing requirements, including rich, multimedia employee portals and compliance solutions. The organization is able to dispense with posted document solutions and use SharePoint to provide endusers with information in all of the formats they need, optimized for browserbased search and retrieval.

The product, which runs as a service within the organization, has been in beta test at locations around Europe throughout 2009 and is now approved for production use.

Significant to this release is a new pricing model based solely on the number of documents the organization wishes to deploy. For organizations needing to convert, publish and manage up to 100 documents throughout the document lifecycle, a free "Small Queue" version having no feature restrictions or timeouts is available for immediate download at For document volumes larger than 100, volume license packs are available that enable organizations to manage and deploy very large numbers of documents at extremely low cost. The queuebased licensing approach frees customers from server- and userbased pricing models and moves toward the SaaS/cloudcomputing licensing model of the future.

In addition to its conversion functions, Hyper.Net delivers a comprehensive set of features and addons that accelerate the development of sophisticated content portals and complianceoriented solutions. Among these are document lifecycle synchronization, the publication of metadata into all renditions, publication security management, expiration and rollback, the compounding of textbased content into single PDF publications with a unified table of contents and page numbering, image resampling and scaling, revision mark publishing and automated hyperlinking.

The standard version of Hyper.Net is a Web service that automatically converts corporate documentation into Webready content that can be deployed to endusers on any technology platform. Converted content is deployed into databases such as SQL, DB/2 and IBM Lotus Domino, where it can be accessed by applications developed using technologies like ASPX, .NET and Java. Hyper.Net has been in use by corporations around the world since 1997.
