Single Browser Plug-in SDK Covers Webcams or TWAIN Devices


Dynamsoft has announced the availability of its new ImageCapture Suite SDK. A combination of its Dynamic Webcam and Dynamic Web TWAIN SDKs in a single suite, this offering is newly optimized to support a much larger range of imaging devices than previously.

The developer proposition here is a single browser plug-in SDK to cover webcams or TWAIN devices, such as scanners. Supported browsers include 32-bit and 64-bit Internet Explorer (IE), Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera.

Developers are urged to consider ImageCapture Suite as a means of creating online image capturing applications to cover all users' needs. The SDK enables editing and uploading of images to local folders, web servers, FTP sites, SharePoint libraries, and other databases.

"With the myriad of imaging devices available and in use developers require highly efficient and secure software development kits for document imaging and processing applications," said Dynamsoft's Amy Gu.

"An ideal SDK should also enable control for as many imaging devices as possible for web applications. ImageCapture Suite delivers this and also provides extensive flexibility for developers. This allows for easier and more thorough design of image acquisition applications for the most comprehensive set of devices including, webcams, scanners, capture cards, and more — almost all imaging devices on the market," she added.

As stated, the SDK represents a bundling of Dynamsoft's Dynamic Webcam SDK and Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK. However, the bundled version includes newly optimized methods and properties for its dual purpose — managing brightness and contrast and other optimized methods such as AcquireImage, CloseSource, and EnableSource.

ImageCapture Suite supports capturing live video streams into a container and grabbing snapshots to be exported to a file / binary. Add-ons include a barcode reader and optical character recognition (OCR). GUI and non-GUI image editors are supported with image editing that includes rotate, crop, and flip. Image downloads and uploads can be done via HTTP / HTTPS or FTP / FTPS. Supported image formats include BMP, JPEG, PNG, TIFF (multi-page), and PDF (multi-page).
