For some types of business, the use of very high resolution images represents a decisive support with respect to the objectives for which the organization itself operates.

Think of museums, the scientific, medical and astronomical fields, or geographic information systems: the ability to view the smallest details of an image with zoom is really important. MomaPIX digital asset management integrates a web-based viewer for zoomable, high-resolution images, available from both desktop and mobile devices.

Viewing and zooming in streaming

Viewing and zooming in streaming

MomaPIX DAM software has the technology for viewing and zooming in streaming of very high resolution images.

The system is capable of handling TIFF or JPEG2000 images of gigapixel size and advanced image features such as 8, 16 and 32 bits per channel, CIELAB colorimetric images and scientific images such as multispectral images and digital elevation maps.

It is also very scalable, designed to be fast and efficient in terms of bandwidth with low processor and memory requirements.

Streaming allows you to view, browse and enlarge gigapixel images in real time that would be impossible to download and manipulate on the local computer.

Zoom features for ultra high resolution images

Zoom features for ultra high resolution images

The management of very high resolution digital assets has several features, functional for viewing the smallest details of the images.

Below is a list of the main zoom features for very high resolution images:

  • Instant dynamic generation of panoramas or JPEG details at any resolution
  • Allows for easy viewing of extremely large images (terabytes in size) without significant memory requirements
  • A single image source file, not thousands of separate small files
  • Standard TIFF based image format that can be created, read and manipulated by most image processing tools (Photoshop, ImageMagick, GIMP, VIPS etc.)
  • JPEG2000 support
  • Management of 8, 16 or 32 bit images per channel
  • Multispectral imaging
  • Fusion of images
  • Secure image distribution: only compressed JPEG views of the image are sent to the client. The full resolution image is not accessible
