HELIOS Document Hub presents images in P3 wide color gamut

HELIOS Document Hub shares and syncs files to mobile devices. Document Hub now supports the wide color gamut displays in Apple iPhone and iPad Pro, to render optimized image and PDF previews.

Hannover, Germany, May 15, 2017 – HELIOS Software GmbH, a developer of cross-platform file sharing software, today released HELIOS Document Hub 2.1 for iOS, to take advantage of the wide color gamut (P3) displays of the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and the iPad Pro 9.7”. The P3 color space is the standard for the digital cinema industry, and is about 25% larger than the sRGB color space used for most web content.

Document Hub recognizes when an iOS device supports the P3 color space, and presents color-matched image and PDF document previews. The result is that users get the most accurate color available on mobile devices. This is essential for editors, brand managers, and photographers, and for product presentations to customers. Everyone will appreciate the vivid lifelike images now possible.

HELIOS Document Hub is a mobile app for iOS and Android that connects to the HELIOS WebShare “private cloud” web portal running on a company’s file server. With Document Hub, mobile users can securely browse and preview server files. Server files can quickly be found via the Spotlight search system, browsed in list mode, or via a gallery view with zoomable document previews. Documents can be downloaded to Document Hub for offline use, and opened in other applications. Photos and documents created or edited on the mobile device can be uploaded to the server. File synchronization copies specified server files and folders to Document Hub for offline use.

“We were delighted when Apple introduced the wide gamut displays”, notes Helmut Tschemernjak, CEO of HELIOS. “This means that Document Hub can now present the most accurate color, which is essential for many customers.”

Key benefits include:

  • iOS P3 color display support for iPads and iPhone
  • ICC color-matched zoomable previews of images and PDFs
  • Present documents and images
  • Quickly access server files via Spotlight search
  • Browse, preview, transfer files from/to intranet server volumes
  • Work offline with server documents
  • Automatic file synchronization brings remote devices up to date
  • Enterprise grade security – enforces intranet users and permissions

Easy to try out, the updated Document Hub for iOS can be downloaded for free from the App Store. Search for “HELIOS Document Hub”. A pre-configured login allows test driving the application using a HELIOS test server.

HELIOS WebShare and Document Hub are ideal for businesses of any size. Complete product details can be found on the website. Watch the HELIOS Document Hub for Android videos for a quick overview, and an in-depth tour.
