PDFWebViewer.NET is a ASP.NET component that enables web developers to display PDF documents in their website without relying on browser plugins like Adbobe Acrobat. 

It uses a mix of on-demand server-side PDF rendering and client side javascript to provide cross-browser PDF viewing without downloading the PDF document to the browser. This enables PDF content providers to provide interactive previews of copyrighted material and enables viewing large documents over low-bandwith connections.

Alanta was tasked with the full product development. This includes software design, public API desgin, implementation of a set of ASP.NET controls and product documentation.

This product is now available as an open source project on CodePlex (here and here) though it still requires licenses for the underlaying components.
