PRESS RELEASE

Image-Pro Plus version 7.0 Software Development Kit

Media Cybernetics has released its Image-Pro Plus version 7.0 Software Development Kit (SDK). The SDK offers a powerful development environment for OEMs, systems integrators, and end users to create tailored versions of the scientific image processing and analysis software. The updated SDK offers a proven host environment that can be easily customised for specific imaging applications without starting from scratch, thereby reducing development risk and cost.

The Image-Pro Plus SDK has been updated to support the features and functionality of the recently released Image-Pro Plus version 7.0. The SDK includes a plug-in wizard, which allows users to automatically generate an entire C++ project including the source code, resource file, and project file. Users can now compile and link with Image-Pro Plus. Developers can add features that are unique to their imaging application, or tailor Image-Pro Plus software to suit a specific vertical market.

Developers can use the SDK to tailor Image-Pro's menus and toolbars to their specifications, create plug-ins that can be called from Image-Pro's user interface, create plug-ins that can read or write data directly to and from an active image, create a setup disk to install their custom plug-in, and control external devices. SDK plug-ins can be developed using C#, C++, Visual Basic or VB.Net programming languages.
