Announcing New dtSearch(R) Product Line Version
Release Enhances Indexing, Searching and Display of MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint
and Outlook; Also Adds an Additional Feature for Forensics Usage
BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- dtSearch Corp., a leading supplier of enterprise, end-user and developer text retrieval software, announces Version 6.5 of its dtSearch product line. dtSearch products instantly search gigabytes of text across a desktop, network, Internet or Intranet. dtSearch products also serve as tools to aid in publishing large document collections to Web sites or to CD/DVD, with instant text searching. All dtSearch products share the same core search and display functionality, including: -- over two dozen indexed, unindexed, full-text and fielded data search options -- display of HTML, XML and PDF files with highlighted hits and with embedded images, links and formatting intact -- built-in HTML converters for display of word processor, database, spreadsheet, email, ZIP, Unicode, etc. files, with highlighted hits. The new version enhances the HTML file converters for Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The new version also provides much faster indexing of Outlook message stores and the full text of email attachments (with highlighted hits, etc.). Finally, the new release includes a new feature primarily for forensic usage of the dtSearch product line. dtSearch Web with Spider uses a wizard-based setup to publish a large volume of instantly searchable content to an Internet or Intranet site. The Spider adds remote Web site content to a locally searchable Web database. The Spider can follow links vertically within a URL, or horizontally across URLs, to any specified level of depth. The Spider supports public sites, secure content HTTPS sites, password-accessible sites, dynamic-content ASP/ASP.NET code, and forms-based authentication. dtSearch Web provides integrated relevancy-ranking and display of local and spidered content, including WYSWYG display with highlighted hits of Web- ready content (HTML, PDF and XML). The new improvements will result in better hit-highlighted display of other documents (e.g. MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint) that may reside both locally on a Web site and in spidered data. dtSearch Publish can quickly publish an instantly searchable document collection to CD or DVD, or mirror an existing Web site on CD or DVD. dtSearch Publish generates CD/DVDs that contain a version of dtSearch Web. The result is instantly searchable CD/DVDs that run with zero footprint. Because dtSearch Publish uses dtSearch Web, the same improvements in MS Office format displays that apply to dtSearch Web also apply to dtSearch Publish. dtSearch Desktop with Spider instantly searches popular file types on a PC. dtSearch Network with Spider instantly searches across a network, running in a client/server capacity. In both products, the spider can add Web-based content to a local search, with integrated results viewing (including highlighted hits). In addition to the improved display of MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, the new approach to Outlook files gives both products a substantial speed boost in indexing Outlook message stores and attachments. The dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine lets developers add dtSearch's built-in file format support and searching to Web-based and other applications. The dtSearch Engine comes in both a Linux version and a Win & .NET version (including a native .NET API). The dtSearch Engine support SQL, Delphi, Java, C++, C++.NET, C#, VB.NET and ASP.NET. The new version offers significant improvements to the HTML converters included with the dtSearch Engine with regard to handling of MS Office file types. The dtSearch product line offers over two dozen indexed, unindexed, fielded and full-text search options. These include: fuzziness adjustable from 0 to 10 (to sift through typographical and spelling errors), synonym/concept/thesaurus, boolean (and/or/not), natural language relevancy ranking (by hit term frequency, density and rarity), positional scoring ranking, phrase, phonic, wildcard, bilateral proximity, directed proximity, stemming, numeric range, user-defined variable term weighting, and international language support through Unicode. Special forensically-oriented features include: (i) automatic parsing of text segments in large data blocks, such as those recovered through an "undelete" process, from unallocated computer space, or from partially recovered file fragments; (ii) language recognition algorithms for detecting text in a large variety of languages (Western European, other European, Middle-Eastern, etc.); and (iii) a proprietary filtering algorithm for scanning recovered data blocks using multiple text encoding detection methods. The new release extends the filtering algorithm to automatically recover text from corrupt forensically-recovered documents. Pricing is $199 for dtSearch Desktop with Spider, from $800 for dtSearch Network with Spider, from $999 for dtSearch Web with Spider, and from $2,500 for dtSearch Publish. dtSearch offers a variety of royalty-based and royalty- free pricing options for the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine for Win & .NET and Linux.
