Proofing of a PDF has always been problematic. First, you need a way to give an exact rendering, you want to control versioning and you may not want to send the actual PDF due to size or workflow constraints. 

A new technology is emerging call CHILI rendro. CHILI rendro is an online PDF and 3D viewing SDK. What we refer to as Parse, stream, dream. Jeff Cheal will give an overview of the technology. 

Since CHILI Rendro is an SDK, we would be remiss in not showing how it could be included in a framework. In this case, we will show how it can be included within Enfocus Switch to create a proofing solution.
