LEAD Technologies has announced a major update to LEADTOOLS Version 17.5. The upgrade is free and available to registered users and LEADTOOLS annual maintenance customers. The latest version brings various new features and enhancements within the Imaging, Document, Medical, and Vector product lines.
After the release of HTML5 toolkits for Document and Medical imaging, the company has added important new features, improved the user-interface tools and accelerated the overall performance of the toolkits. The document and medical HTML5 image viewer controls now feature improvements to the ease of their use, image display quality, as well as browser compatibility. In addition, new features and enhancements were added to the Zero Footprint HTML5 DICOM Viewer and its customizable web application.
"The positive response and feedback we received when we first brought our HTML5 SDK to market was outstanding," stated Otis Goodwin, Manager of LEADTOOLS Developer Support. "The great thing about HTML5 is that it is extremely extensible and our design takes into account that our customers will want us to add features quickly. In just a few short months, we have been able to add significant new functionality to our HTML5 offerings, with many features being added based on inventive feature requests made by our early adopters."
Apart from the HTML5 modules, a variety of technologies throughout the LEADTOOLS product line were upgraded - such as OCR, PDF, Barcode, Medical Viewer, DICOM, PACS, 3D, and formats. The recognition technology in the LEADTOOLS Document Engine now offers improvements in speed, recognition accuracy, supported document formats and searchable text output quality. The Medical Viewer Control was significantly upgraded across all programming interfaces. The Imaging and Vector engines also received updates that improve and extend their file format support.
