Elium enables you to share files in the most common formats which are recognized and indexed: pdf, docx, xlsx, pptx, jpg, mov, etc. All these files are subject to immediate pre-visualization in the tool. Desktop documents and pictures are automatically converted and legible from the interface. Every document is available as download in its original version.
The size limit of a file is 2 Gb. Downloading a large file may take some time, and if a video is involved its conversion needs some minutes" processing before it can be streamed online.
