LEAD Technologies Releases ePrint Version 6

LEAD Technologies announced the release of LEADTOOLS ePrint Version 6. This new version continues to lead the way for desktop file conversion applications with 150+ formats, a Workstation application, Advanced PDF Features and more. Best of all, ePrint 6 has been upgraded to use the latest award-winning imaging technology from LEADTOOLS Version 18 including LEAD's internally developed Advantage OCR Engine. LEADTOOLS ePrint 6 takes OCR technology used around the globe within large corporations and financial institutions and packages it in a comprehensive and user-friendly print-to-file desktop application. The OCR Engine is capable of recognizing text from images in over thirty languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and more. OCR may have been the focal point during the development of ePrint's latest version, but this version is still capable of so much more than just OCR. With everything else that ePrint offers -- Workstation, Annotations, SharePoint, Email, Screen Capture and more -- ePrint is truly an all-in-one file conversion package. It should be no surprise that Version 6 will continue LEADTOOLS ePrint's legacy as a world-renowned file conversion software product perfectly suited for use at home and around the office.

LEAD Technologies Releases LEADTOOLS Version 18

LEAD Technologies announced the release of LEADTOOLS Version 18. This bountiful new release is highlighted by new LEADTOOLS Anywhere(TM) native libraries for WinRT, iOS, OS X, Android and Linux, along with major updates to LEADTOOLS Document, Medical and Multimedia technology for Win32/64, .NET and HTML5. LEADTOOLS Anywhere(TM) extends LEAD Technologies' award winning LEADTOOLS Imaging SDKs to every major development platform. This initiative began last year with the release of SDKs for HTML5 and WinRT. The HTML5 SDKs made it possible to develop zero footprint web applications and WinRT laid the necessary foundation for porting LEADTOOLS to other native platforms. With LEADTOOLS 18, LEAD has further expanded the reach of its Imaging SDKs by offering native libraries for iOS, OS X, Android and Linux development. All core LEADTOOLS imaging technology is natively supported in each of these platforms, including viewing, annotation and markup, OCR, OMR, forms processing, 1D and 2D barcode, PDF, DICOM and support for over 150 file formats and 200 image processing functions.

Lead Technologies, Inc. Announces the Release of LEADTOOLS WinRT Module

Lead Technologies, Inc. announced the release of LEADTOOLS WinRT Module. This new product provides native WinRT imaging libraries for developing the next generation of applications for any desktop, tablet or Windows Phone running Windows 8. The LEADTOOLS WinRT Module is available as an add-on to any LEADTOOLS Document or Medical SDK, and its availability will coincide with Microsoft's release of Windows 8 on October 26th. The LEADTOOLS WinRT Module is the first imaging SDK released to the market largely because of Daher's vision and an aggressive Beta program that generated positive feedback. Developers will find everything they need to create powerful imaging enabled Windows Store applications, whether they are developing a basic imaging app or creating powerful document and medical applications. The highly interactive viewer controls in LEADTOOLS support both mouse and multi-touch input and can load, save, display, process and annotate over 150 image formats including PDF, PDF/A, DOCX, PPT, JPEG 2000, TIFF, JBIG2, PSD, and more. Beyond these basic imaging features, LEAD has created native libraries for advanced document and medical imaging capabilities such as OCR, Barcode, DICOM Data Set, Window Leveling, DICOM Annotations and PACS. The LEADTOOLS WinRT Module can be used to fill in the blanks and extend additional imaging functionality with interoperability classes for converting between LEADTOOLS' RasterImage object and the standard WinRT imaging objects such as ImageSource and WritableBitmap. Customers currently developing Windows Runtime based applications can quickly add support for PDF by using LEADTOOLS to load the file and convert it to the native Windows Runtime objects. Additional imaging technologies such as OCR and Barcode can be easily implemented with minimal changes to their code. In fact, any LEADTOOLS feature can be added to extend applications in this manner.
