The latest Document Imaging SDK includes major usability improvements to the Text, Note, and Comment annotations along with added support for reading and writing IBM IOCA and MO:DCA images.

The improvements to the Text, Note, and Comment annotations help to streamline the process of annotating documents, making the user experience that much better. A full list of changes to the annotations can be found below.

The added support for legacy IBM IOCA and MO:DCA output formats now allows developers to support a larger range of legacy file formats within their application, preventing users from having to convert documents or manage multiple viewing solutions. The IBM IOCA and MO:DCA API library supports 1 bit black and white color depth with IBM MMR compression, 8 bit grayscale with JPEG compression, and 24 bit color with JPEG compression.

The MO:DCA format supports single-page and multi-page documents.

For developers that offer solutions to the medical field, where HIPAA compliance is critical to their application, we added a feature to create, read, and write IBM IOCA and MO:DCA only in memory.

The complete list of improvements in the latest Document Imaging includes the following:
