Dynamsoft's New Image Capture SDK Adds Mac Support and Sandbox
ImageCapture Suite 9.0 Adds Mac Capabilities to Ensure Cross-Platform Support and Sandbox for Improved Performance and Security
VANCOUVER, BC–(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2013) - Dynamsoft has made available a new software development kit (SDK) that adds to its existing Macintosh® (Mac) features for true cross-platform support and also adds Sandbox for increased robustness and security. The SDK, ImageCapture Suite 9.0, enables easy development of web applications for image acquisition, processing and management. It’s ideal for programmers, R&D managers and CIOs in industries requiring heavy scanning for digital document management. Such industries include healthcare, finance, government and others that require processing paper documents to digital formats. Dynamsoft is a developer of scanner programming libraries andImage Capture SDKs.
ImageCapture Suite 9.0 boasts compatibility with all mainstream browsers for use on Windows® or Macintosh® (Mac). This provides added flexibility to meet all image acquisition needs. Browsers supported include 32-bit and 64-bit Internet Explorer® (IE); Firefox®; Chrome™; Safari®; and Opera®. Devices supported include TWAIN-compatible scanners and UVC-compatible webcams. For webcams, it supports snapshot grabs from live video streams. The SDK enables developers to create image acquisition apps using just a few lines of code. This is instead of needing to code hundreds of lines from scratch and also spending months learning the TWAIN and other standards.
Compatibility has been improved with the addition of supporting a Mac client. Application robustness and security has also been improved with Sandbox. Sandbox enables using an independent process to communicate with imaging devices. With this separation of the scanning process from the browser process, security is enhanced.
“We’ve been developing simple and powerful image capture SDKs now for years,” said Amy Gu, Vice President of Dynamsoft. “ImageCapture Suite 9.0 continues our efforts to make things even easier and more powerful and secure for developers to deploy image capture applications. We also provide all our customers with award-winning technical support that includes everything from knowledge bases and forums to email, chat and phone support.”
The SDK has built-in support for image clean-up, crop, zoom-in/out, and more. In addition, it features multi-threaded and secure image uploading and downloading to/from a database or file system. It also has built-in JPEG, PNG, PDF and TIFF encoders for users to compress acquired images regardless of if the TWAIN source has the capability or not. ImageCapture Suite 9.0 works with ASP.NET; PHP; JSP; ASP; VB.NET; and others.
