PDFTron Systems Ships a New PDFNet SDK Update

Vancouver, Canada, (PRWEB) July 24, 2005

PDFTron Systems, a leading software developer specializing in PDF, SVG, and PostScript technologies, announced the release of a new update to PDFNet SDK (v.2.6). The new release focuses on improved compression in PDFNet SDK, utilizing the latest and most advanced compression technologies available on the market, such as JPEG2000 and JBIG2.

PDFNet SDK is a high-quality, industry-strength PDF library meeting requirements of the most demanding and diverse applications. PDFNet SDK gives software developers a comprehensive PDF toolkit with a variety of options for PDF document manipulation. Using PDFNet you can write stand-alone, cross-platform and reliable commercial applications that can read, write, edit, print and display PDF documents. PDFNet is available as a 100%.Net component that can be used from any .Net language (e.g. C#, VB, and J#) and as a cross-platform C/C++ library.

The new release features a brand new high-performance, high-quality JPEG2000 engine which can be used to decode and process any JP2 embedded stream in PDF. The JPEG2000 filter (introduced in PDF 1.5) decodes data that has been encoded using the JPEG2000 compression method, an international standard for the compression and packaging of image data. JPEG2000 defines a wavelet-based method for image compression that can give better size reduction than other methods such as regular JPEG or CCITT.

In addition to enhanced JPEG2000 decoder support, the PDFNet toolkit also features new JBIG2 decompression support. All PDFNet users can now decode and preview monochrome (1 bit per pixel) images created using the PDFNet library. JBIG2 provides considerably better compression than the existing CCITT standard. Images of pages containing text in any language compress particularly well, with typical compression ratios of 20:1 to 50:1 for a page full of text. PDFNet has been supporting lossless and lossy JBIG2 encoding in previous product releases for more than a year.

Another enhancement to the PDFNet library includes improved font substitution using all available fonts. This means that PDF documents with missing fonts (i.e. fonts that are not embedded) will render more accurately in the PDF rasterizer/viewer.

Other customer-driven enhancements include numerous bug fixes, new sample code projects and other incremental improvements.

For a comprehensive listing of features available in PDFNet, please have a look at our PDFNet Feature Chart at:

Product Update: Cambrionix units not affected by the latest Haswell based Apple MacBooks and Desktops

(PRWEB UK) 29 November 2013

For many cart and case manufactures this causes a headache because if the number of USB devices on the computer is limited, the number of products you can sync with it at once is limited. Ergotron units, for example, can only sync 25 or less iPads (as per their Product Bulletin 2013-6E, Rev B) regardless of the capacity of the cart/case. Charging is not affected. Griffin have also announced that the issue will cause problems when using 2 or 3 Griffin MultiDock units.

Thankfully, due to the expertise of the Cambrionix Engineering team, they have developed a workaround for this issue. The workaround is incredibly easy to deploy and means that any products incorporating Cambrionix sync/charge electronics will work just fine, as normal. Simply log onto the Cambrionix website, download the fix, follow the instructions and carry on with the day!

So, if you have a 48 capacity cart with Cambrionix Intelligence inside, it will sync as normal and not be limited to 25 or less units.

Circulating Tumor Cell (CTC) Technologies – An Informative Market Research Update from RI Technologies,

Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh (PRWEB) September 24, 2012

Oncologists believe that detection of cancers other than blood cancers and their characterization would be greatly facilitated by identification of CTCs originating from epithelial tumors. This approach could be a suitable non-invasive biopsy that can substitute the conventional tumor detection and is largely applicable to breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colorectal cancer. In many breast cancer patients bone marrow shows the presence of certain cells known as disseminated tumor cells. These cells are different and do not respond to the chemotherapy given to the patient to control the breast cancer. They are potential metastatic cancer cells and are responsible for the recurrence of cancer elsewhere in the body despite chemotherapy treatment given for the primary cancer. Therefore, the importance of detection and characterization of CTCs need not be overemphasized.
