Licensing

In order to allow the greatest possible use of out toolkits by developers of all sizes and types, they are normally licensed on a per-copy basis, avoiding the need for a high initial charge. It may therefore be downloaded and evaluated for a period of up to 60 days, without charge or obligation

Details of costing and availability differ are tailored to different applications and market sectors.

Developers

The majority of the users of DicomObjects and XdsObjects are commercial developers, writing applications which they then sell to their own customers. The licensing model is designed to accommodate such users by eliminating the initial outlay often associated with specialist programming tools. As a result, DicomObjects is available free to bona fide commercial developers, who then pay royalties only on copies actually distributed to their customers. All ancillary uses such as development and demonstration are allowed free, as they are in the mutual interests of Medical Connections and the developer.

If you qualify as a genuine commercial developer, please complete, sign and return the appropriate developer agreement(s). In return you will receive a copy of the software without the 60 day trial limit.
