Atalasoft, Inc. announced the release of DotImage 6.0, the latest version of its Imaging Toolkit. Atalasoft DotImage is a full-featured photo and document imaging toolkit for applications built using the Microsoft .NET Framework for Windows Forms or ASP.NET. DotImage 6.0 also includes support for Visual Studio 2008, a Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation image viewer control, increased support for parallelizing image processing on multi-core and multi- processor machines, and an updated RAW codec and black point compensation for photographic imaging solutions.
Atalasoft continues to expand its support for enterprises and independent software vendors (ISVs) in need of advanced document imaging technology in their enterprise content management solutions. DotImage 6.0 introduces several major developments, including royalty-free optical character recognition, ISIS scanning support, CAD/CAM viewing, support for 64-bit environments, and significant PDF additions including text extraction and native PDF annotations.
Atalasoft’s innovative AJAX-enabled imaging controls for ASP.NET with Tile On DemandTM technology brings image and document processing on the web to a new level with the most universal, efficient, and powerful thin-client, server-side imaging controls available. The overhead involved in deploying and maintaining a thick-client enterprise application can be very expensive. Atalasoft's DotImage provides ASP.NET applications the ability to include AJAX-enabled web controls for viewing images, annotating images, viewing thumbnails, and editing images with 100% server-side processing and a dynamic AJAX browser UI for both 32-bit and 64-bit servers.
"In our commitment to web-based document imaging we have enhanced our toolkit to make it even easier to develop zero-footprint web-based imaging applications. We can now offer three months of our highly regarded gold support to each new customer, allowing organizations to develop ECM Imaging applications without frustration and in record time" noted William Bither, Founder and CEO of Atalasoft, Inc. "In addition, the ability to save standardized PDF annotations frees organizations from being dependent on proprietary annotation viewers. We had also been looking to provide a cost- effective way for our customers to extract their data from paper documents, developing a .NET Framework-based interface to a runtime royalty-free OCR engine is a great low-cost entry-point into Document Capture."
