Zero Footprint DICOM Viewer EnhancementsThe HTML5 release was a phenomenal start to “LEADTOOLS Anywhere.” In particular, the HTML5 DICOM Viewer compelled a great deal of interest and feedback from our customers. A few short months after the HTML5 Medical Image viewer hit the market, some truly impressive new features were added to an already outstanding product. The biggest additions were support for multiple study and series level layouts, Softcopy Presentation State and Compound Graphic Object annotations, drag and drop, and Cine made the viewer comparable to any desktop solution but with the added deployment and maintenance benefits intrinsic to zero footprint applications.
WinRT ReleaseThe vast majority of the tech industry is very excited about Windows 8 and the new WinRT platform. We don’t typically open up our engineering doors for public beta testing, but we decided to give it a go since the rest of the development world was in the same boat playing with Windows 8 betas, release candidates and consumer previews. Seizing this unique opportunity was a great success! We had customers from all over the world participate and offer their feedback. As soon as Windows 8 blew its doors open, LEADTOOLS was right there with the first and only WinRT imaging SDK on the market. LEAD Technologies was happy to provide developers with everything they needed to create native imaging-enabled Windows Store apps with rich features such as viewers with mouse and multi-touch support, annotations, PDF, OCR, Barcode, DICOM, PACS and more.
There was so much more we achieved this year but I’m quickly running out of space. The speed enhancements to our OCR, Barcode, and PDF libraries as well as receiving The Code Project Member’s Choice Award are also honorable mentions in my book.
