LEAD Technologies has just released Version 17 of the LEADTOOLS Multimedia Software Development Kits (SDKs). LEADTOOLS 17 is designed for software engineers who need advanced multimedia features.

The LEADTOOLS Multimedia SDKs are designed for the development of audio and video software across different industries such as security, defense, and broadcast. They turn the usually complex DirectShow projects into easy tasks. The SDK features easy to integrate multimedia functionality including conversion, capture, streaming and playback.


LEADTOOLS Multimedia offers H.264, H.263, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, AAC and AC3 codecs, and feature support for any DirectShow audio/video codec. The SDK contains multiplexers and demultiplexers for a wide variety of formats (MP4, AVI, MP3, WMV, 3GP, OGG, FLV, ISO, MPEG-2).

Version 17 includes 64 bit binaries for playback, conversion, multimedia capture, and a large variety of DirectShow filters such as sinks, effects, sources, multiplexers, demultiplexers, frame rate controllers, as well as codecs (H264, MPEG-4 and MPEG-2).

“We realize that that the multimedia streaming industry is growing at an incredible rate. As content distributors push to deliver more and more content to their viewers, the need for high performance compression technology is essential. These demands were a number one priority in our latest version,” said Otis Goodwin, Developer Support Manager at LEAD Technologies. “Not only have we again pushed the compression performance envelope even further with this release, we have ported our entire lineup of DirectShow codecs and filters to 64 bit. With the addition of a .NET multimedia interface, LEADTOOLS V17 is the most comprehensive multimedia toolkit available, providing developers with everything they need to create rich, high performance multimedia applications.”
