iPIX Java Viewer 4.0

This release of the iPIX Java Viewer 4.0 contains several new features which are designed to allow our users greater flexibility in customizing their content for individual web sites. Among these features are customizable splash screen graphics (with background colors & logos), customizable help page links, and an optional, minimalist toolbar.

Download ZIP File (Windows and Mac)
iPIX branding is subtle, consisting only of a "Powered by iPIX" tag under the splash logo, and an iPIX label on the optional zoom toolbar tab.
Download size for the .jar file is a slim 47Kb. making this a very compact viewer for the end user to download.

You must use either iPIX® Wizard 2.3 or iPIX® Builder 4.1 to create high-resolution Full 360-degree images that you wish to view with the iPIX® Java® Viewer.
Embed the Java Full 360-degree image or Panoramic image onto your Web page using the iPIX® Java Applet 4.0. With this code, you must have the .jar file in the same folder as your html page that uses the code below.

<APPLET name="IpixViewer"
code="IpixViewer.class"
archive="IpixViewer.jar"
width="320" height="240">
<PARAM NAME="url" VALUE="YOURIMAGE.ipx">
<PARAM NAME="toolbar" VALUE="on">
<PARAM NAME="initfov" VALUE="80">
<PARAM NAME="spinspeed" VALUE="0">
<PARAM NAME="spinstyle" VALUE="flat">
</APPLET>

Full Featured Example Code

<APPLET name="IpixViewer"
code="IpixViewer.class"
archive="IpixViewer.jar"
width="320" height="240">
<PARAM NAME="url" VALUE="YOURIMAGE.ipx">
<PARAM NAME="toolbar" VALUE="off">
<PARAM NAME="splash" VALUE="YOURSPLASH.jpg">
<PARAM NAME="splashbg" VALUE="YOURHEXCOLOR">
<PARAM NAME="initfov" VALUE="80">
<PARAM NAME="spinspeed" VALUE="6">
<PARAM NAME="spinstyle" VALUE="flat">
<PARAM NAME="helpurl" VALUE="http://www.YUORDOMAIN.com/YOURHELP.htm">
<PARAM NAME="helpframe" VALUE="_blank">
</APPLET>

Adding a codebase line to the applet lets you store the .jar file in one place and reference them from any page on your Web site. This code requires the Full 360-degree image and the Web page to be in the same directory. To maintain compatibility with older browsers, the codebase line should contain an absolute address to the directory of the applet as shown below:

Known Issues
iPIX is aware of the following issues and is working to correct them:
erratic performance in Apple Safari when used with Apple's Java v1.4.1

Step 1:
Make sure all of your iPIX® files — Full 360-degree images (.ipx), IPScripts (.ips), and audio files (.midi, .vox, .wav) are together in one directory.

Step 2:
Use the following code to embed the Full 360-degree image onto your Web page. To control the opening size of the image, change the width and height values. Make sure you change the name and size values in both places. If you are using an iPIX® TV-Studio file, called an IPScript, simply use "yourimage.ips" instead of .ipx
