Add-On Image Format Support

Some of our decoders are provided as separate add-ons:
Microsoft Office, DICOM, and JPEG2000/JBIG2

Microsoft Office Decoder (Word/Excel/PowerPoint)

This add-on quickly decodes Word, Powerpoint and Excel documents into color or grayscale raster images, seamlessly plugging into DotImage and associated image viewing components as an image decoder. 

  • Convert Office files to raster images in Atalasoft image viewer controls:
    See a full list of supported formats
  • Print Documents using the DotImage Printing components or by rendering onto a printer graphics object.
  • Convert Documents into any supported DotImage image format (multipage TIFF, JPEG, etc).
  • Integrates with our AJAX enabled Web Image viewer for server-side viewing, panning, and zooming of documents
  • Runtime Royalty Free Desktop Licensing
  • Requires Microsoft Office dependencies - learn more

DICOM Format

Create a medical imaging application for displaying X-Ray DICOM images, a tablet application for doctors to diagnose an image and annotate freehand notes on a separate layer, or build an application to read patient information embedded in a DICOM image.

  • Views both old and new style DICOM Formats
  • Decodes images into 8-bit Gray, 16-bit gray, 24-bit RGB, or 48-bit RGB colorspaces
  • Also supports 10-bit, 12-bit, and 14-bit gray promoting them to 16-bit gray for viewing
  • Read all patient metadata from the image
  • Support for all DICOM pixel formats in the web controls 
  • Support for DICOM window and leveling 
  • Support for reading DICOM sample values before any transformations have been applied
  • Reads a specified frame in a multi-framed DICOM image
  • Full annotations support

JPEG2000/JBIG2

Atalasoft's JBIG2 and JPEG2000 codecs can be used to encode and decode images using the Microsoft .NET Framework.  They use wavelet compression technology to compress photographic images further then any other available compression scheme.  These codecs are available as a plug-in and integrate with Atalasoft DotImage seamlessly. They're based off of Luratech's Lurawave.jp2 wavelet compression technology.
