Developers building document management systems, enhancing off-the-shelf software, or looking to avoid unnecessary licensing fees choose Atalasoft for their imaging needs. The company provides innovative image-viewing, annotating and processing technology that improves the way people work with documents over the Web. Its products power more than a thousand document management enterprise content management and electronic medical record applications used by millions of end users worldwide.
“We work very hard to ensure adding imaging and PDF support is extremely easy for our customers,” said Lou Franco, vice president of DotImage Product Strategy at Atalasoft. “DotImage is the only comprehensive imaging toolkit built for .NET that offers unlimited deployments, so you don’t have to track the number of clients and servers you are deploying to.”
Atalasoft’s DotImage .NET imaging SDKs can be used to view, capture and annotate images and PDFs. It is the only full-featured .NET imaging SDK that is royalty-free for desktop applications. With the exception of GlyphReader and ISIS, all add-ons are also royalty-free for desktop applications. Server deployments require only a per-server license; unlimited server deployments are available to ISVs for a fixed annual fee.
“Our customers like DotImage because it integrates with .NET and Visual Studio,” said Franco. “We have licensing models that don’t make them track runtimes, and when a developer calls for support, they talk to an engineer who knows a lot about .NET and our products.”
DotImage is available in three editions: Photo, Photo Pro and Document Imaging. Franco explained that Atalasoft decided to offer DotImage Photo at no charge as of September 2010 so that all developers could have access to basic imaging format support, more than a hundred imaging processing commands, plus Windows Forms controls for viewing images in desktop applications. The SDK is free and there are no licensing costs associated with the deployments; paid support contracts are available.
DotImage Photo Pro and DotImage Document Imaging provide additional formats like RAW, TIFF and PDF. They also offer more advanced processing options, ASP.NET Web controls, Silverlight controls, and annotation controls for the desktop and the Web. Specifically, DotImage Photo Pro offers all the features of DotImage Photo plus advanced raster image processing for the photographic and pre-press industries.
