Shopping for optics has never been easier. Enhanced searching allows the user to quickly search for optical components by keywords. Results are shown with page numbers and categories listed for all possible matches. When clicking on the page number, an animated red arrow appears pointing to the chosen product in the catalog's main window. All stock numbers are hyperlinked to the equivalent EO webpage where you can add the product to the shopping cart. The cart button in the digital catalog is linked to the EO shopping cart allowing you to review your purchases while you continue to shop. Shop with confidence because all purchasing takes place through EO's secured website.
Navigation is simplified either by accessing the Table of Contents and clicking on a specific section such as New Products or Optical Primers, or by clicking on a specific product in the search window. An animated page flip allows the viewer to "thumb through the catalog," while a convenient slider bar at the top menu lets the viewer navigate quickly to a specific page number.
For those accustomed to using "sticky notes," a yellow sticky note can be added to a specific page for the viewer to note questions or thoughts for later review.The viewer simply clicks on the icon, jots down his or her notes, and a yellow tab appears on the side of the page where the note is waiting. The tool bar features buttons that allow for adjusting the page zoom, printing one or more pages, jumping to a desired page, emailing a friend or colleague, or creating a desktop shortcut icon for quick catalog access.
