How does the new Box View work?

Upload files. Using our secure, public upload API, send files to Box. All content is stored in Box's secure cloud storage infrastructure with virus scanning and 256-bit encryption.


Files are converted.Upon upload, files are converted into HTML5-compatible assets, designed to render crisply and responsively.


Request embeddable previews. Request an embeddable URL with the file rendering. Previews can be embedded directly in your application using an iFrame URL or with the Javascript SDK.

Customize Your Experience

Use the Box Javascript SDK to create customized client-side experiences with your files.
