LizardTech and LEAD Technologies team up to advance digital imaging solutions

LizardTech, a developer of digital imaging software and viewing tools – announced its DjVu and MrSID file formats are supported within new LEADTOOLS Version 14, empowering software developers to work more efficiently.

The addition of the DjVu and MrSID file formats is part of a significant document imaging focus being delivered by LEADTOOLS Version 14. LizardTech’s MrSID format, empowers developers to work collaboratively and cost effectively. Using MrSID, users can instantaneously view and manipulate images, locally and over networks, without sacrificing quality or wasting time. MrSID also enables browsing, updating, and easier archiving. One can pan and zoom seamlessly; multi-resolution capabilities enables one to create clearer images with each mouse click.

LizardTech’s open-format DjVu technology transforms the process of working with digital images and scanned color image documents, and facilitates highly accurate optimal character recognition (OCR) – even when using color image documents. DjVu image documents are the smallest in the industry, up to 1,000 times smaller than TIFF files, and anywhere from 5 to 100 times smaller than JPEGs or PDFs. Using DjVu, users can work more intuitively by eliminating repetitive tasks, freeing up hours of time for innovation and invention.
