"Image Power, Inc. (CDNX:IPZ) introduced today a Linux image viewer for FaxPC that supports JBIG2 image decoding plus a variety of other file formats. The first version of this new viewer was made available today at the FaxPC Web site and supports Red Hat, Debian, Caldera, SuSE and Slackware versions of Linux."

"In addition to supporting JBIG2, the image viewer will support a wide variety of file formats used in image transmission and storage, including the more popular formats BMP, EPS, G3, G4, and TIFF. The viewer is available in two formats, DPackage (deb) and Red Hat Package Manager (rpm), and supports the majority of Linux platforms. The viewer is available at no cost to subscribers of the FaxPC service, and may be downloaded from the FaxPC website at www.faxpc.com."

" 'Porting JBIG2 compression to Linux is an important first step to the adoption and migration of our next generation technologies. We've ensured that FaxPC stays at the forefront of technology by being the first universal messaging service offering both Linux and JBIG2,' said Stephen Swift, president of Image Power. 'The Linux operating system figures prominently in our future plans. We believe that Linux will be seen increasingly in the Internet server and embedded appliance markets, places where image compression is going to be integral to functionality.' "
