LEAD Technologies is pleased to announce the release of a major update to LEADTOOLS Version 17.5. This free upgrade, available to registered v17.5 users and LEADTOOLS annual maintenance customers, is highlighted by many new features and enhancements within the Document, Medical, Imaging and Vector product lines.

After the successful release of HTML5 toolkits for Document and Medical imaging earlier this year, LEAD has added significant new features, enhanced the user-interface tools and accelerated the overall performance of these toolkits. Both the document and medical HTML5 image viewer controls received major improvements to their ease of use, image display quality, and browser compatibility. Additionally, many new features and enhancements were added to the Zero Footprint HTML5 DICOM Viewer and its customizable web application, further establishing LEADTOOLS as the most powerful zero footprint DICOM SDK on the market.

“The positive response and feedback we received when we first brought our HTML5 SDK to market was outstanding,” stated Otis Goodwin, Manager of LEADTOOLS Developer Support. “The great thing about HTML5 is that it is extremely extensible and our design takes into account that our customers will want us to add features quickly. In just a few short months, we have been able to add significant new functionality to our HTML5 offerings, with many features being added based on inventive feature requests made by our early adopters.”

In addition to the HTML5 modules, various technologies throughout the LEADTOOLS product line were revamped and upgraded including OCR, PDF, Barcode, Medical Viewer, DICOM, PACS, 3D, formats and more. The extensive and diverse technology in the LEADTOOLS Document Engine received many improvements in speed, recognition accuracy, document formats supported and searchable text output quality. Medical Imaging developers will enjoy some incredible new features and enhancements to the Medical Viewer Control, which was significantly upgraded across all programming interfaces. Finally, the Imaging and Vector engines received several updates improving and extending their file format support.
