The ClearImage 8 continues Inlite's tradition of innovation in Image Processing and Barcode Recognition engines. Since 1992 ClearImage automated thousands of installations around the world.
ClearImage COM provides the core functionality as set of 32-bit and 64-bit modules. The COM architecture and easy-to-integrate API provide a path for development of imaging applications in VB6, C++, Java, Delphi, PHP, etc.
ClearImageNet provides a .NET managed API around core ClearImage engines.
Supporting AnyCPU configuration it defines two main namespaces:
- ClearImageNet Namespace - Implements the functionality of the underlying ClearImage Engines through a higher-level API. This namespace is recommended for new application development. Major classes in this namespace are:
Image IO Class - Extends the image I/O capabilities of .NET image I/O. Loads and stores Bitmap object from/in a wide selection of file types, including PDF-based images. Obtains extended information about the structure of image files. Uses the underlying ClearImage IO and PDF IO engines.
ImageEditor Class - Modifies and analyzes images using the underlying ClearImage Repair and Tools engines.
BarcodeReader Class - Reads barcodes from images using underlying ClearImage Pdf417, ClearImage DataMatrix, ClearImage QR, ClearImage Barcode 1D Pro and ClearImage Barcode 1D Basic engines.
- ClearImage Namespace - Implements classes which substantially mirror the ClearImage COM API. This namespace is recommended for easy porting of existing ClearImage COM and ClearImage Interop applications to the managed API.
ClearImage SDK is the primary tool for creating ClearImage-based applications. Use the ClearImage Demo Application to evaluate and select functions and strategy without code development. Use ClearImage source code examples as the starting point for development of your application.
ClearImage Production Deployment
ClearImage runtime components for production purposes are installed by ClearImage PDK. ClearImage engines are licensed by the purchase and registration of ClearImage Products licenses.
ClearImage Products implement logical groups of API functions for typical use, for example image processing or barcode recognition. Available products are listed on Inlite Web Site. Contact Inlite Sales if you are not sure which product licenses you need.
