I have tried an open source project Diva
I have greyscale images in TIFF for the online zoomable display of some manuals

Here is a scan of a photocopy 36 page
and here a technical manual
I have two copies so the user can see two views at the same time on
the second example.

They are served on an ADSL line direct from home so you can get the
idea of its speed due to the way
it is only sending tiles as needed for display and not bloat like whole PDF.
