PrizmDoc Viewer v13.5 - Updated
Get Started!

Welcome to PrizmDoc Viewer - let's get started!

This topic walks you through the steps you need to get PrizmDoc Viewer installed, configured, and running. You will also be able to integrate a basic viewer into your web app.

Recommendation: The easiest way to get up and running for an evaluation is to select the PrizmDoc Cloud evaluation license. You can always start with PrizmDoc Cloud for the evaluation and then move to PrizmDoc Viewer Self-Hosted later.

It's important to understand the basic structure of PrizmDoc Viewer when it's embedded in your web app. PrizmDoc Viewer contains 3 essential pieces:

  1. PrizmDoc Server - PrizmDoc Self-Hosted or PrizmDoc Cloud - the back-end conversion engine
  2. PrizmDoc Application Services (PAS) - the connection point between the Viewer and the Server
  3. Viewer - the HTML viewer component
