LEAD Technologies has released their new product LEADTOOLS WinRT Module, providing native WinRT imaging libraries for developing applications for desktops, tablets and Windows Phones running Windows 8. The product is available as an add-on to LEADTOOLS Documents or Medical SDKs, and will be available with Windows 8 on October 26th.



"One of the keys to LEAD's successful 20+ year history of providing a world class imaging SDK to software developers has been our ability to meet the challenge of keeping LEADTOOLS in step with Microsoft's OS and API advancements," said Moe Daher, Chairman and CEO of LEAD Technologies. "Microsoft is releasing the future of Windows application development with WinRT, and LEAD is releasing the future of imaging development with LEADTOOLS WinRT Module. We are pleased to share in the industry excitement by releasing LEADTOOLS WinRT Module concurrently with the Windows 8 release. Developers searching for the very best imaging technology to add to their Windows Store apps will find it in LEADTOOLS WinRT on the same day Windows 8 is released."


The viewer controls in LEADTOOLS support both mouse and multi-touch input. Users can load, display, process, save and annotate more than 150 image formats including PDF, PDF/A, DOCX, PPT, JPEG 2000, TIFF, JBIG2, and PSD. LEAD has also added native libraries for document and medical imaging capabilities incuding OCR, Barcode, Window Leveling, DICOM Data Set, DICOM Annotations and PACS.


With WinRT Module users can fill in the blanks and convert between LEADTOOLS' RasterImage object and the standard WinRT imaging objects such as ImageSource and WritableBitmap. Developers of Windows Runtime based applications can add support for PDF by using LEADTOOLS to convert the file to the native Windows Runtime objects. OCR and Barcode recognition can be easily implemented with very small changes to their code.
