Multivio: Generic browser and visualizer for digital objects

Multivio is a web application that provides a flexible, functional and enjoyable platform for accessing digital content, be it in textual format (like books, articles and journals) or in other media types, including sound and video, or a mix of any of them. It is designed specifically to work as front end for digital document repositories and digital libraries.

The application runs natively inside the web browser using JavaScript technology, and does not require the installation of dedicated software. (Although specific file formats may require dedicated browser plugins.)

Multivio is open-source software.
