Accusoft Pegasus Updates ImageGear

Accusoft Pegasus has released ImageGear Version 17 for .NET and Silverlight. The new ImageGear SDKs deliver tools that accelerate development of custom imaging applications using ASP.NET, WPF, and Silverlight.

Within ImageGear for .NET, a new ASP.NET client-server solution provides a "zero footprint" web-based viewer that requires no client installation. It harnesses the client CPU to deliver a faster, crisper viewing experience than competing AJAX offerings. The result is image viewing support for 100 file formats including TIFF and PDF, and improved operator efficiency.

This release also adds image annotation support for WPF and Silverlight. ImageGear for .NET and Silverlight allow rich viewing experiences with advanced user interface features while promoting document collaboration between users through powerful annotation capabilities. Documents can be marked up and shared by viewers, enabling new workflow solutions within and between enterprises. For WPF and Silverlight development environments, software engineers are provided high-level controls, a fast display engine, and sophisticated layout options.

ImageGear controls the image capture process and strictly adheres to image compression standards. Software engineers use ImageGear to build applications for end users that display, convert, and manipulate over 100 image file types through a common interface, including raster files such as TIFF and JPEG, and vector files including PDF and CAD. The annotation support facilitates enterprise collaboration, and the image processing features improve image display quality and reduce file sizes.
