Pixelworks® and ACCESS Collaborate on Officeviewer to Enable Content Viewing and Presentations without a PC

Pixelworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: PXLW), a pioneer in innovative video and display processing technology, and ACCESS CO., LTD, a global provider of advanced software technologies to the mobile and beyond-PC markets, today announced the companies are collaborating on Officeviewer to bring projection capability without a PC to a full range of projectors -- from traditional mainstream projectors to small LED or laser-based portable and pocket projectors. Officeviewer offers users the convenience of using a portable USB thumb drive to view content and make presentations when a PC isn’t available or convenient.

As part of this collaboration, ACCESS ported its NetFront™ Document Viewer to Pixelworks’ existing platform of digital projector solutions. Officeviewer leverages USB host functionality in Pixelworks’ connected display processors, such as the Topaz platform family, to effectively eliminate the need for a PC to make presentations. The Officeviewer software solution is now available for integration by customers of new and existing Pixelworks SoC projector platforms, including the Company’s latest generation Topaz family of display processors.

“ACCESS and Pixelworks, respective leaders in software and projectors, have successfully collaborated to bring this innovative solution to market and improve the user experience for our customers,” said Graham Loveridge, Sr. Vice President of Marketing at Pixelworks. “This projection capability will be available for a range of platforms, including the Topaz SoC family, and will ultimately be designed into nearly every leading projector brand. As such, we expect giving a presentation or viewing content without a PC to eventually become mainstream.”

“Similar to the growing trend of projection capability without a PC, viewing or sharing documents and content across connected devices has become a standard expectation for consumers in a connected world,” said Kiyoyasu Oishi, Senior Executive Officer, Global Business Unit, ACCESS CO., LTD. “By combining these projection and document viewing technologies, consumers will no longer need to use a PC to present and share documents, making it simpler and more efficient to work and collaborate.”

Features of Officeviewer include:

  • Display of Microsoft Office documents like Excel, PowerPoint, Word (Office 97 and later), as well as PDF and Text documents
  • Support of a variety of image formats, including BMP, PNG, JPEG, GIF
  • Support of pan, zoom, rotation, page control
  • Support of scalable fonts and multiple languages
  • Requires minimum of 128 MB of RAM and Pixelworks SoC display processor with integrated USB host function
