High Quality Previews of Mechanical Drawings
Air Berlin, Germany’s second largest airline, integrated the FLY SDK into an internal application to enable viewing and printing of CGM technical drawings as TIFF images.
Swiss Life, a leading international specialist for risk, life and pensions solutions, automates archival of upwards of 20,000 pages of print correspondence per day in the TIFF format. They are delivered as PostScript print files and run through a conversion service based on FLY Batch Server based in Zurich.
TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) is a widely supported high-quality raster image format, and a standard in areas like faxing, imaging and archiving. TIFF files can be viewed on just about every computer using a variety of applications. They can be single-page or multi-page, black & white or full color, high resolution for printing or low resolution for screen display.
TIFF file formats are used for storing high quality images. They can be very large. It is the favored image format in many graphic applications. These include FAX, archival and scanning applications, image manipulation programs, desktop publishing and 3-D imaging applications. A TIFF version called GeoTIFF is used to store geo-referenced raster images.

Airbus, a leading aircraft manufacturer, integrates FLY SDK into a proprietary server application used by their airline customers. When the application is fed PDF and PostScript files, FLY SDK drives the automatic extraction of vector graphics as CGM, raster images as TIFF or JPEG and text as ASCII. Airbus chose Visual Integrity because of excellent support, willingness to collaborate on custom features, multi-platform support (Sun Solaris, Microsoft Windows) and general quality of all output formats. Airbus has been a Visual Integrity customer since 2005
