LEAD UPDATES LEADTOOLS(TM) SOFTWARE TO INCLUDE MORE CONVERSIONS, IMPROVED COMPRESSIONS FOR DOS REAL-MODE IMAGE APPLICATION DEVELOPERS.
CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- LEAD Technologies, Inc., now offers DOS real-mode image application developers an updated set of C- language programming tools for fast and robust image file format conversion and size compression and decompression. It includes support for four compression standards, most conversions and a variety of image manipulation functions. And for scanned or fax document applications, it offers special 1-bit CCITT Group III and IV (fax standard) file handling and greatly enhanced document image file compression. New LEADTOOLS(TM) version 3.5 is available for $995 (all prices suggested U.S. resale at participating resellers; inquiries invited); there is no charge for run-time licenses. One issue that LEADTOOLS helps developers resolve is "flavors" among popular image file format "standards." There are, for example, many variations of the JPEG compression standard, of TIFF, of PCX and of other popular formats. LEADTOOLS reads more "flavors" of these and standards than do most alternatives. LEADTOOLS supports JPEG, LZW and CMP (LEAD's proprietary high-performance method) compressions. Its conversions cover TGA, TIFF, BMP, PCX, GIF and other image file formats. It includes image manipulation (flip, rotate, reverse, lighten, darken, resize) tools. It supports most graphics cards and printers. It can perform lossless compression on 8-bit grey scale and 24-bit true color image files. And it handles files up to 2,048 pixels wide. LEAD Technologies provides end-user and developer software for image applications. Among these applications: image databases, multimedia, desktop publishing, graphic design, graphic arts, military, photographic, micrographic, medical, surveillance, quality contol, real estate and more.
