The TIFF SDK/ActiveX is a complete set of easy to use tools that helps application developers and programmers create applications with sophisticated TIFF processing capabilities. The TIFF SDK is compatible with the following development languages: .NET, VB.NET, C#, J#., C, C++ and MS Access.
The TIFF SDK/ActiveX includes a very powerful feature that makes displaying images to any display device easy. The display feature included in TIFF SDK/ActiveX provides an easy to use solution for developers. Application developers now do not have to spend expensive engineering time implementing complicated display routines. Just a few function calls and the Black Ice display routine will do the rest.
The TIFF SDK/ActiveX includes the most sophisticated TIFF File Processing tools on the market since 1989 and TIFF processing is a pivotal part of Black Ice software development toolkits. TIFF processing allows software developers to create applications that encode, decode and manipulate TIFF files.
Scanning support is based on the latest TWAIN 1.9 drivers. With the latest TWAIN drivers, application developers have total control over almost every aspect of the scanning process. Applications can even turn on and off the use of the document feeder that some newer scanners have in order to perform batch scanning or automated scanning.
Black Ice imaging and image processing tools provide an easy way to print images in single or multiple print jobs with a wide variety of options. When printing, today’s applications not only want to create a paper copy of an image file but also want to specify the way in which the image will be printed. The image has to be positioned on the paper according to a predefined location, printed with its original size or stretched to a specific size. Some applications even require printing more than one image on the same page so the amount of paper wasted would be minimal. Black Ice imaging tools provide several powerful options to meet these needs.
One very important area where image processing is commonly used is faxing. During faxing image files are being transferred from one device to another. The format, the size and the resolution of the image file that can be transferred is specified by the fax standard and by the device (i.e. fax board) that will transmit the file.
Black Ice Software’s TIFF SDK/ActiveX controls are designed to assist developers in building web-based Internet imaging applications. You can build a server based or client based image-processing web application with quick integration using the TIFF SDK ActiveX controls.
Additionally, the TIFF SDK/ActiveX contains a variety of new sample applications, which demonstrate the new document conversion capabilities and features. The product is fully .NET compatible and also provides sample source code written in C#, VB.NET, and J# to demonstrate the powerful document conversion options.
