A new web TWAIN software development kit (SDK) developers can use to quickly build and deploy image scanning applications supports Sandbox so browser-based image scanning applications are securely separated from the scanning device. The new SDK from Dynamsoft Corp. is Dynamic Web TWAIN 9.0. It also supports multi-threaded image uploading and downloading which greatly improves performance over the previous version, particularly for large documents like multi-page TIFF or PDF files. Dynamsoft is a developer of scanner programming libraries and Image Capture SDKs.
The SDK is ideal for many industries requiring simple scanning, uploading, editing and document management from popular web browsers. These industries include government, healthcare, financial and other such industries with heavy image and document management requirements. Dynamic Web TWAIN 9.0 is optimized for web applications. The provided TWAIN interface allows developers to write just a couple of lines of code. This is instead of taking months to learn the TWAIN standard and develop an application with hundreds to thousands of lines of code.
The use of Sandbox also ensures hassle-free communication with TWAIN-compliant devices. Supported devices include TWAIN-compatible scanners, digital cameras or capture cards.  In addition to improved security, by separating devices from the application, Sandbox also provides better stability and compatibility. The SDK has built-in support for local image editing and saving options to a variety of formats. Documents can be saved to local or remote databases or other repositories. Dynamic Web TWAIN 9.0 supports 32-bit / 64-bit Internet Explorer (IE), Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera browsers.
Dynamic Web TWAIN 9.0 also has an improved user experience for application providers, developers and end users. The installation and deployment process has also been simplified. Developers need only copy the related files to their web server. Once installed and ready to use, end users will find it easier – compared to previous versions – to activate image scanning features.
“Our new SDK is ideal for programmers in greatly simplifying and expediting development to deploy image scanning and document management for browser-based web apps,” said Amy Gu, Vice President of Dynamsoft.  “R&D managers and CIOs benefit from quicker deployment by enabling greater productivity sooner. Dynamic Web TWAIN 9.0 delivers great compliance with TWAIN devices eliminating worry about device types of end users. It’s secure and efficient at image uploading, downloading and management.”
