Deep dive searching finds hidden content

Markzware has unveiled a new version of its PageZephyr desktop search product that allows any company to search and manage previously inaccessible content.

PageZephyr 2.0 captures, indexes, and converts content created in proprietary or non-common formats without the need for the original authoring application.

Internet search engines provided by companies such as Google, Yahoo! and Bing are typically used to search the web for content within common file-types, such as text in PDF, RTF , TEXT or Word documents. On the desktop, indexing and search engines such as Microsoft Windows Index and Apple's SpotLight work in the same manner with the same limitations.

PageZephyr 2.0 discovers content inside file formats such as .indd (Adobe InDesign), .pub (Microsoft Publisher) and .qxd (QuarkXPress).

It also allows searching in a specific area of interest across these different file types, to merge, edit and combine content for easy creation of new and relevant information pertinent to that topic. PageZephyr 2.0 also responds to detailed Boolean queries by using AND as well as OR to further refine the search.

Mary Gay Marchese, director of public relations at Markzware says, "Until now it has been impossible to search and find content within the billions of Quark, Adobe InDesign and Microsoft Publisher files, let alone extract text and convert text once found, without opening each one in the native application.

"With PageZephyr 2.0, Markzware is essentially releasing 4 products in one: content searching, content viewing, content extraction and content distribution for these unique file formats."

"eDiscovery firms trying to find that 'smoking gun,' or companies trying to manage risks while reducing the cost of maintaining content compliance will benefit from PageZephyr 2.0. Companies in various vertical markets having the need to recycle premium content contained in these document types to market their goods or services, especially through the Internet, will find PageZephyr 2.0 invaluable."

Priced at $US199, PageZephyr 2.0 runs on Macintosh platforms OS X 10.5.8 and higher. PageZephyr processes both Macintosh and Windows versions of these document types. A fully-functional, 30-day trial by visiting
