Lead Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

LEAD Technologies Announces the Release of LEADTOOLS Version 19

LEAD Technologies announced the release of LEADTOOLS Version 19. Headlining this release are the new Document Viewer and Document Converter frameworks for .NET and HTML5/JavaScript. Combined with significant updates and additions throughout the Document, Medical, Imaging and Multimedia product lines, developers can do more than ever with LEADTOOLS Version 19. The new Documents SDK is a comprehensive development framework for creating, reading and writing raster and SVG images, annotations, thumbnails, text data and metadata from supported document types. By using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) as an intermediate format, the Document Viewer and Converter are able to work with any document, vector or raster image file format in a uniform fashion. Moreover, 100% accurate document-to-document conversion can be accomplished without the need for OCR. One incredible aspect of the Document Viewer is that it requires fewer than twenty lines of code to create a robust, fully-featured document viewing and editing solution that would normally take years to develop. It includes rich document viewing features such as searchable text, annotations, memory-efficient paging, inertial scrolling, and vector display with infinite zoom. In Version 19, the OCR, Barcode and Forms engines are better than ever before. Improvements to accuracy, auto-zoning and new barcode types bolster the award-winning recognition engines that are already deployed all over the world on countless servers and desktops. Additionally, the LEADTOOLS Forms Recognition and Processing engine has received a major overhaul. Developers can now perform advanced forms processing on dynamically sized documents and unstructured forms such as invoices, driver's licenses, passports and checks. New demos with simplified user interfaces and improved form creation are included for each of the new form types. LEADTOOLS advances further with enhancements addressing zero-footprint, cross-platform and interoperability with this major release. The HTML5 /JavaScript viewer (a standalone control allowing developers to create sophisticated web applications with only a few lines of code) contains many new features such as structured display, scanning, printing, shutter, Cobb angle and new medical-specific image processing algorithms. The OEM-ready application now utilizes AngularJS and TypeScript for even easier integration and customization through its MVC architecture. Interoperability was a major focus, with LEAD creating a brand-new HL7 SDK including message encoders and decoders, listener service, and seamless integration with the LEADTOOLS Modality Work List and DICOM Storage Server.

LEAD Technologies Expands Distribution Partnership with GrapeCity in China

LEAD Technologies has established a new strategic distribution partnership with GrapeCity in China. As one of LEAD's first and most well-known distributors, GrapeCity has established a strong market for LEADTOOLS in Japan with a localized version within its PowerTools line of developer components. GrapeCity has a longstanding and well established presence in China and with its experience with the LEADTOOLS product line, GrapeCity was the natural choice to manage the LEADTOOLS channel in China.

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.
