My agency has a document imaging system that stores scanned documents in a BLOB binary format -- mimetype is TIFF file. I have a new project that requires flex to be able to display these images so we can add new functionality to the imaging system. I know Flex cannot handle TIFF files directly, so I'm seeking some help on what other solutions are available to display these images -- whether I need to find a Flex plugin, or have some way internally within Flex to convert a TIFF to a JPG or similar format.
In typical coldFusion and HTML pages, I have been able to use QuickTime with <object> tags to render the images into a browser as well. Just not sure how this would work with Flex.
