LEAD DICOM Reader (2.0)

The LEAD DICOM Reader makes it possible to stream the video data in any DICOM file. It also makes it possible for any DirectShow -based media player to play video data in a DICOM file. The filter offers the ability to control the stream speed by changing the frame time. In addition to the basic stream and speed control functionality, this filter makes it possible to insert ones own external DICOM dataset and gain access to the initialized dataset for use with other processes.

The DICOM reader has a built-in JPEG and JPEG2000 decompressor. It can play DICOM MPEG-2 (SD or HD) file, but it requires an external MPEG-2 decompressor. The DICOM Reader is designed to work with the LEAD MPEG-2 Decoder. It can also play DICOM H264 (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264) files (SD, HD or BD-compatible), but it requires an external H264 decompressor.The DICOM Reader is designed to work with the LEAD H.264 Decoder.

The filter requires the LEAD raster DLLs to be present in the filter folder, or any folder in the Windows system-defined path. The filter uses the DLLs from the newest toolkit version (v19) if it finds them. Otherwise, it uses DLLs from previous versions (v17.5, v17, v16 or v15) if the latest toolkit DLLs are not found.
