Trellis Management has announced the availability of the XDepth Raw Converter for Windows, available free of charge for both personal and professional use. The XDepth Raw Converter is a RAW development and 48-bit image-processing software tool that features the proprietary XDepth RAW image compression technology.
The XDepth Raw file format is a new (announced in October) file format that features JPEG compatibility, visually lossless compression, JPEG compatible thumbnails, and full RAW development controls. The XDepth file format not only offers raw compression, it also offers copyright protection by securing copyright and author data within the file itself. The security features of the XDepth file format can also be enhanced to offer full DRM (digital rights management) by using certified digital signatures and time stamps.
Although primarily designed for raw processing, the XDepth Raw Converter also works with 48-bit images by importing and saving out as TIFF, PNG, or XDepth48 file formats providing high bit depth image processing.
You can download the XDepth Raw Converter for free from the XDepth Raw Converter Web site here.
