Snowbound Software Releases True 64-bit Document Imaging and Conversion Toolkit

RasterMaster SDK for .NET and DLL takes Full Advantage of 64-bit OS and 64-bit Computer Systems for faster and larger data handling - ensuring developers are working with the most advanced imaging tools

January 14, 2011 (Boston, MA) - Snowbound Software, the leader in document viewing and conversion solutions, is pleased to announce the latest release of its RasterMaster .NET and DLL Imaging and Conversion SDK for 64-bit Systems. The enhanced offering includes a full 64-bit library with support for annotations, PDF, Microsoft Office, RTF, AFP, and many image formats (PCL support coming soon), plus true compatibility with all Windows 64-bit platforms and applications). Snowbound has long provided 64 bit support via its Java and UNIX products.

Snowbound’s RasterMaster Imaging and Conversion SDK provides developers with the tools needed to build powerful document viewing and conversion functionality into enterprise workflow applications. A developer can easily add robust imaging functions including viewing, conversion, manipulation, and annotation for virtually any document and image formats using RasterMaster’s flexible APIs. RasterMaster .NET is designed to fully integrate with Microsoft’s Visual Studio for .NET tools providing managed code capability, and provides “drag and drop” functionality for object oriented development.

Integrating 64-bit processing into applications truly brings Windows developers into the 21st century. CPUs and operating systems have been providing the technology for a number of years now but applications have lagged behind. The advantage of 64-bit applications is the ability to access more memory and larger files for faster searches and data retrieval. Developers making the leap from 32-bit to 64-bit can dramatically improve the performance of such demanding and complex applications. By actually doubling the amount of data that can be processed for certain scientific or database applications, programmers have much more power to utilize, and can thereby revolutionize the performance and capabilities of server and desktop software.

“Snowbound Software's extensive line of RasterMaster Imaging and Conversion SDKs continue to lead the industry in performance and reliability,” explained James Palo, vice president of research and development. “RasterMaster is built on decades of imaging expertise and continually enhanced with new functionality like our just released 64-bit integration. We are the only company to offer a true 64-bit SDK and Library because of our proprietary code base, ensuring that our customers are developing with the most advanced imaging tools in the industry.”


RasterMaster SDK 64-bit DLL is available now, .NET 64-bit SDK will be available at the end of January 2011. Pricing starts at $3,000. Contact sales for more information at 617-607-6010. Online information, product evaluations and proof of concept may be found here:
