Version 18 updated
What's New in the LEADTOOLS Document Engine
LEADTOOLS Version 18.
This new release is highlighted by new LEADTOOLS Anywhere™ 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™ 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.

Additional features can be added to Document Imaging:
NEW Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) Standard .NET
WPF supports robust imaging capabilities, interface automation, data-driven user interfaces and visualization, as well as Windows shell integration. WPF can natively access Windows Imaging Component (WIC) codecs and APIs, allowing developers to write image codecs for their specific image file formats.
The LEADTOOLS WPF Standard Edition includes controls for everything you need to start adding imaging functions to your Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) applications.
WPF Standard .NET Features:
NEW Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) Pro
Use the LEADTOOLS WPF Pro to unleash the power of LEADTOOLS in your XAML applications. Using LEAD's WPF interface, you can add LEADTOOLS OCR, TWAIN scanning, document pre-processing, medical imaging, and much more to any WPF application. Get Expression Blend-compatible and fully styleable controls for complete interoperation support between LEADTOOLS and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) images.
LEAD Technologies' most advanced WPF Image Viewer - Leadtools.Windows.Controls.Pro incudes image viewer controls that not only support all Microsoft .NET BitmapSource image objects, but works directly with LEADTOOLS Imaging Pro .NET classes, allowing you to leverage the full power of LEADTOOLS file format and image processing support. The fully styleable control includes scroll, zoom, pan, magnify glass, and image list.
Advanced WPF Image Processing - The Leadtools.Windows.Media namespace contains classes that let you convert a LEADTOOLS image (Leadtools.RasterImage) to and from a WPF image (System.Windows.Media.ImageSource). This namespace also gives you access to all LEADTOOLS image processing functions, allowing you to create powerful imaging applications using the WPF framework.
The Leadtools.Windows.Annotations namespace included with LEADTOOLS Document and Medical products adds powerful annotation capabilities to documents and images in WPF. These include not only lines, shapes, and pointers, but essential tools like redaction (blackout), hotspots, text, images, highlights, sticky notes, images, stamps and hyperlinks.
WPF Transition Effects
The Leadtools.Windows.Media.Transitions namespace allows you to add multiple slide show transition effects to your WPF projects. Choose from 10+ basic effects like wipe, blinds, push, rotate, and zoom, plus dozens of variants.
LEADTOOLS offers a variety of annotation (document mark-up) objects that can be added to document, grayscale and color images in a presentation layer. With LEADTOOLS the end-user can draw, reposition and change the attributes (color, size, etc.) of any of the 30+ built-in objects types. From simple objects such as lines and rectangles to an enhanced redaction object that can restore parts of an image that were blacked out. When combined with annotation security, the redaction objects provide a means of granting user-level access to parts of an image. To provide a superior means of security and privacy, LEADTOOLS has an Encrypt/Decrypt object to encode an area of the image without introducing any new colors, thereby maintaining higher quality with lossy compressions.
Annotation objects can be stored as a separate object presentation layer, or can be burned or embedded into the actual image. LEADTOOLS allows you to read or write annotations as an external XML file or as LEAD, DICOM or Wang annotation tags within a TIFF file. Also, you can export the annotations objects to a standard Windows metafile. With the LEADTOOLS SDK, you can choose between low level access to the annotations, or you can implement annotation support through a fully automated user interface presentation mode with a ready to use customizable toolbar, pop-up menus and property dialogs. The annotation features provided in LEADTOOLS can be used in any application where image markup is required.
Key Features: (* Only available in .NET classes. ** Not available in .NET classes.)
General Imaging Features:
Making the LEADTOOLS Document Imaging product line the most diverse and robust document imaging product available, LEAD has also included general (bitonal, grayscale and color) imaging features including Image Processing, Color Conversion, Display, Special Effects (choose from more than 2000 effects), Compression, Image Format (import/export), Printing, Internet/intranet imaging (Web Forms), Database imaging, Imaging Common Dialogs and Screen Capture.
Image Display, Memory and Processing Optimizations (Bitonal Scaling): (*Only available in LEADTOOLS Document Imaging or Medical Imaging Toolkits. †Only available in LEADTOOLS Medical Imaging Toolkits.)
LEAD Technologies continually reviews and adds file format support to give your application control over the display of almost any Raster or Vector image (only available in LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging SDK) you encounter. LEADTOOLS currently supports over 150 different image formats and sub formats, each of which has its own unique set of load/save/display options, which may encompass varying types and/or degrees of compression, a range of image information bit-depths, progressive (multi-pass) image display, the ability to maintain multi-page or multi-channel images, animations, or non-image data, just to name a few. You can depend on LEAD Technologies to provide you with the support you need to give your application control over the display of almost any image you encounter. Image display can be subdivided into two groups: raster image display and vector image display. These groups are described in more detail in the following sections.
Raster Image Display
LEADTOOLS provides numerous functions to let you take control of your application's image display. Control brightness and contrast settings, color reduction with dithering and palette control, scaling/fitting, enlargement/reduction, panning, scrolling, painting with transparency and/or regions.
Further, LEADTOOLS provides high level image-list and thumbnail browser controls, a special magnifying-glass feature, an automated pan-window control, and a Zoom View control that allows you to annoate pre-defined zoomed regions.
When used with the AutoScroll option, all Scroll Bar activity is automatic (scroll bars respond to programmatic changes of display settings, and display settings are updated by user's use of scroll bars).
Vector Image Display: (Only available in LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging SDK)
The LEADTOOLS Vector Image Display features provide support for 2D and 3D Vector formats. Support for primitive objects include Arc, Bitmap, Brush, Camera, Circle, Clone, Ellipse, Elliptical Arc, Font, Group, Layer, Line, Pen, Pie, Chord, Poly Draw, Polygon, Poly Line, Poly Bezier, Raster, Rectangle, Text, Vertex and Clipping objects. Vector images can also be rotated, scaled and translated as a whole (not individual objects) for display purposes. In addition there are low and high-level functions to control the view of vector drawings include zooming (both uniform or around any axis), panning, rotation (around any axis) and anti-aliasing. Vector drawings can be scaled to any resolution desired without distorting the original image, ensuring that fine details of the drawing will not be lost during printing.
Specialized Storage and Compression:
Includes JBIG2, ABIC, JPEG2000 and LEAD CMW.
Image Acquisition - Fast TWAIN - Scanners, Digital Cameras, Capture Cards
LEADTOOLS provides a powerful set of tools spanning the full spectrum of digital imaging, including in-depth support for image acquisition through industry standard interfaces from a wide variety of hardware devices.
With LEADTOOLS you can control any scanner, digital camera or capture card that has a TWAIN or WIA (32 or 64 bit) device driver. High-level acquisition support is included for ease of use while low-level functionality is provided for flexibility and control in even the most demanding applications.
Using LEADTOOLS Scanning capabilities, your application can:
With the LEADTOOLS TWAIN support, you can do anything that your TWAIN v1.9 driver supports. If your TWAIN driver is not v1.9 or does not support a functionality listed above, then LEADTOOLS will support all of the features that the driver has that are compatible with the TWAIN v1.9 specification.
LEADTOOLS TWAIN support gives your applications access to the wide variety of devices which can acquire images via TWAIN from manufacturers such as Kodak, Hewlett Packard, Microtek, Logitech, Canon and Fujitsu.
Scanned documents often contain undesired elements, such as specks, dots, black borders, lines, and hole-punch marks.
LEADTOOLS provides powerful functions that can clean up documents by detecting and removing these elements. This class of LEAD functions each supply a "hook" into the API decision making process, allowing the programmer to obtain information about every detected element, and to use the information to tailor the function to meet his needs. Each function can also optionally return a region corresponding to any proposed changes, allowing for end-user "preview" capabilities.
These new features, along with the deskew, dilation, erosion, min and max filters give LEADTOOLS Document Imaging SDK the power and flexibility you need when working with scanned documents.
The document clean-up functionality includes:
LEADTOOLS ePrint Integration:
LEAD offers an entire line of LEADTOOLS imaging toolkits for programmers who wish to add imaging functionality to their applications. LEADTOOLS is the engine that ePrint is based upon, and offers the flexibility to accomplish any imaging development task. If you need an imaging toolkit for file format support and conversion, image processing, compression, and more, then LEADTOOLS is for you.
Benefits of Integrating ePrint with LEADTOOLS:
Unicode is a character encoding standard developed by the Unicode Consortium. The aim of the standard is to provide a universal way of encoding characters of any language, regardless of the computer system or platform being used. The core of Unicode, known as the Basic Multi-lingual Plane, contains space for over 65,000 characters. These include some 49,000 characters from the world's languages, include letters from alphabets, ideographs used in writing systems such as Chinese, and other characters such as currency and mathematical symbols. In addition to these, space is available for custom use, and supplementary code points are available for characters used in languages such as Chinese, where the total number of characters is not quantifiable.
