PRESS RELEASE: ImageGear for Silverlight v18 with Silverlight 4 Support Just Released by Accusoft Pegasus
Handle image processing on the client-side and minimize back-end infrastructure costs!
TAMPA, Fla. - Septmember 28, 2010 – Accusoft Pegasus, the leading provider of imaging software development kits (SDKs), announces the release of ImageGear for Silverlight v18. Built with Silverlight 4, ImageGear for Silverlight enables the creation of high performance, custom imaging applications. ImageGear for Silverlight v18 improves upon the robust ImageGear for Silverlight technology adding: complete printing functionality, TWAIN scanning controls, new annotations types, enhanced mouse handling and display optimizations for improved image storage.
Designed for developers of Rich Internet Applications (RIA), ImageGear for Silverlight is the industry’s most comprehensive Silverlight imaging SDK. Enhancements made in Silverlight 4 allow ImageGear for Silverlight v18 to enable printing and scanning functionality. Users can now print images directly from Silverlight applications, with complete control over the print layout, and acquire images from TWAIN scanners, when running locally.
Take advantage of the new display optimizations that allow print and display methods to work with datasets larger than 16 MB. Additionally, this release includes enhancements to the pageview control. New drag-and-drop events and multi-touch display support has ImageGear ready for the next generation of touch-based devices.
ImageGear for Silverlight equips users with a robust set of annotation functionality right at their fingertips. Applications using its robust annotation support can encourage collaboration between users. Annotation improvements include: text trimming, point and curve annotations, and clipboard support, allowing users to copy and paste text-based annotations.
ImageGear for Silverlight continues to empower developers to create cutting-edge medical imaging solutions and powerful DICOM-enabled applications. With this release, the support for DICOM Presentation State allows image display and annotations to stay in accordance with presentation state definition. Pairing the DICOM enhancements with the development speed of ImageGear for Silverlight, developers can quickly create custom built radiology and EMR solutions that are in a class all by themselves.
ImageGear for Silverlight is a fully-managed solution that runs on the client system, enabling continued operation when disconnected. Server-side processing is expensive, complex and time consuming, and ImageGear for Silverlight can reduce data center expenses by migrating the processing to the client systems. Using this robust Silverlight SDK, developers can implement a single user interface that allows users to quickly view more than 100 image file types, including raster files such as TIFF, JPEG and Camera RAW.
ImageGear for Silverlight product information, demos, and release notes are available online, along with full-featured trial versions, available for immediate download at www.accusoft.com/ig-silverlight.htm.
