As digital imaging technology advances, gigapixel and even terapixel super-resolution microscopic images are starting to proliferate for medical and other applications. However, due to their enormous size, the real-time interactive visualization of such super-resolution microscopic images over the Internet is difficult and existing solutions such as Microsoft HDview, GigaPan and Aperio WebScope suffer from time delays.This powerful new technology provides a method for enabling the real-time interactive multi-resolution visualization of large-scale gigapixel microscopic images over the Internet using standard desktop PCs, laptops, and mobile devices. Indeed, its real-time system is one hundred times faster than Microsoft HDview and twenty times faster than Aperio WebScope in the interactive visualization of gigapixel images over the wired and wireless Internet.

Key Benefits

  • Enables interactive ultra-fast visualization of super gigapixel/terapixel high-resolution images
  • Accessible over fixed and wireless Internet, including 3G/4G connections
  • Uses standard desktops, laptops and mobile devices; no expensive equipment required

Target Applications

This innovative real-time interactive gigapixel image visualization solution is targeted at hospitals and other healthcare facilities to facilitate the sharing of high-resolution images between doctors and other professionals. It also has potential applications in other industries such as construction.
