Dynamsoft Corp. has updated its Dynamic .NET TWAIN software development kit (SDK) to version 5.0, which now provides built-in support for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). This allows software developers to more rapidly build WPF-based applications for image capturing from TWAIN scanners or UVC / WIA webcams and other devices. Dynamsoft is a developer of browser-based image capture SDK, .NET document imaging component, and version control software solutions.
WPF is a Microsoft graphical subsystem for rendering user interfaces in Windows-based applications. With native support for WPF, Dynamic .NET TWAIN 5.0 now provides developers an expedited path to building and deploying .NET applications that use a WPF interface. The SDK supports the latest version of WPF – WPF 4.5 – and previous versions. The SDK has built-in support for image capture from scanners, webcams and other devices using TWAIN, WIA and UVC application programming interfaces (API). These features and more practically eliminate worries related to ensuring device compatibility in WinForm, WPF or other .NET applications. Extension features include image editing and uploading capabilities to allow post-capture processing. Captured images can be saved to a local disk, web server or database. Save formats include BMP, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, multi-page TIFF, PDF and multi-page PDF formats.
“Dynamsoft remains committed to simplifying the development path in generating advanced image capture applications, whether desktop or browser-based,” said Amy Gu, Vice President of Dynamsoft.  “To this end, we also provide 1-D and 2-D barcode reader and OCR add-ons for our SDKs. Providing our customers with capabilities such as these allows faster, more cost-effective development of document imaging applications and more sophisticated user feature sets.”
Dynamic .NET TWAIN is based on Microsoft’s .NET framework and the TWAIN library is optimized for use in C# and Visual Basic .NET. Customizable scanning configurations include ADF; duplex; resolution; pixel type; and more. Multiple award-winning technical support channels are provided for the SDK, including email, live chat, forum and phone.
