LEADTOOLS Multimedia Developer Toolkit

LEADTOOLS Multimedia is specifically designed for the development of audio/video applications across a wide variety of industries, including defense, broadcast, and security. The Multimedia SDK offers developers a full range of technologies that turn normally complex DirectShow and Media Foundation projects into simple tasks. The integration of core multimedia functionality, such as playback, capture, conversion, and processing into applications, is easier than ever before with LEADTOOLS Multimedia.

LEADTOOLS Multimedia is the base product and starting point for developers creating powerful multimedia applications based on DirectShow and Media Foundation with the LEADTOOLS Multimedia Family. Beyond the core functionality, LEADTOOLS includes a massive collection of advanced features that can be added through value-oriented add-on modules or á la carte.
