Intergen releases Office Open XML web application
New Zealand-based Intergen has announced its new software product TextGlow at the international MIX08 conference in Las Vegas. The annual conference is now a showcase of Microsoft innovation on the Web.

TextGlow allows users to view Office Open XML Word documents without having to download them, irrespective of whether or not they have Microsoft Word or any other Microsoft Office application installed.

Office Open XML Formats, which are based on Ecma standard 376, are the default file formats for the 2007 Microsoft Office system.

“TextGlow is a unique product combining Office Open XML and Silverlight for the first time,” says Chris Auld, Intergen’s Director of Strategy and Innovation.

“Microsoft Office documents have traditionally required software to be installed on the local machine. The new XML- based file format, coupled with Silverlight, has allowed us to make documents viewable directly through users’ web browsers. Having an internationally documented standard such as Office Open XML allows innovative New Zealand companies such as Intergen to reach a global audience,” says Mr Auld.

TextGlow was designed and developed by young Intergen talent James Newton-King as part of the company’s ongoing strategy to develop innovative products with new Microsoft technologies.

As one of the first applications to combine Office Open XML and Silverlight, TextGlow works across different platforms and is freely available to all users.

Now in its third year, MIX is an international conference where cutting-edge technical, creative and business strategists from around the world engage Microsoft in a conversation about the future of the web.
