Developer Solutions, the application development specialist, announces the release of LEADTOOLS Multimedia Imaging toolkits version 13. These programming toolkits enable Windows developers to deliver comprehensive video technologies in their software applications. As part of this ability, programmers can incorporate powerful video functionality in four major areas: Capture, Play, Convert, and Compress/Decompress. Advanced capabilities include capture from, WDM, native Direct Show including DV, and Video for Windows Capture Devices, allowing for simultaneous audio and video
capture. Developers may choose to capture directly to a file or grab images individually to memory.

The toolkits offer video and audio preview during capture. LEADTOOLS' video capture technology gives developers the freedom to fit to window, stretch in increments of 50%, 75%, 100%, 200%, and full
screen. In addition, LEADTOOLS' video capture supports close captioning, TV tuners, multiple built-in configuration dialog boxes, statistic grabbing during capture, and supports video and audio processing filters. Licenses start from £425 and more information can be found at:
