LEADTOOLS World LEADer in Imaging SDKs
By providing an early beta program to customers already investing in WinRT and Windows 8, LEAD Technologies and its customers will both benefit as developers everywhere embark on writing the next generation of applications.

(PRWEB) September 19, 2012

LEAD Technologies has announced a beta trial program for its up and coming LEADTOOLS WinRT Module. This new product will be available as an add-on to any SDK in the document and medical product lines.

Currently, the beta program includes everything developers need to build imaging enabled Windows Store applications including file format support, PDF & PDF/A, viewer controls and image processing. The viewer controls work seamlessly with the new Windows Store application style and feature multi-touch input and interactive modes such as Pan, Scale, Pinch & Zoom and Magnifying Glass. Developers using native WinRT features can also take advantage of conversion utilities to convert between the LEADTOOLS RasterImage and WinRT WritableBitmap objects.

"The decision to release a beta program is an exciting business venture." says Moe Daher, Chairman and CEO of LEAD Technologies. "Not only are we excited about helping our customers get an early jump on the opportunities that Windows 8 will provide, but we also anticipate some great feedback. Our HTML5 SDK was a huge success and our customers helped make that happen with their suggestions and feature requests. By providing an early beta program to customers already investing in WinRT and Windows 8, LEAD Technologies and its customers will both benefit as developers everywhere embark on writing the next generation of applications."

LEAD will continue adding new features such as OCR, Barcode, Annotations and more with beta participants getting the first look. The beta program will conclude with the official release of the LEADTOOLS WinRT Module which will be concurrent with Windows 8.

Customers interested in participating in the program can find instructions and more information from http://www.leadtools.com/downloads/beta.htm.
