We are pleased to announce we are now shipping a new version of Image-Pro Plus. Here are the highlights: 

 Image-Pro Plus® Version 6.0 Includes Powerful Analysis Tools and Support for Windows XP x64Silver Spring, Maryland – January 30, 2006 - Media Cybernetics announces the release of Image-Pro Plus Version 6.0 scientific image processing and analysis software. This major version release of Image-Pro Plus includes a number of new image analysis tools along with support for powerful Windows® XP x64 operating systems.

Support for Windows XP x64 and New File Formats

Image-Pro Plus Version 6.0 supports the new, high-performance Windows XP x64 operating system from Microsoft. The Windows XP x64 operating system is the latest in technical computing – supporting 128 GB of RAM and 16 terabytes of virtual memory address space. Image-Pro Plus Version 6.0 also includes support for new file formats including read/write support for JPEG2000 and read support for EXIF JPEG files.

Streamlined Image Acquisition Tools

Accurate analysis must start with a quality image. Image-Pro Plus Version 6.0 provides a streamlined acquisition interface that makes it simple to capture great images. This new version release also includes a dynamic auto-range feature for optimized image views as well as user-defined live scaling for low-light acquisition.

3D Imaging Functionality

Image-Pro Plus Version 6.0 provides sophisticated tools for exploring images in three dimensions. The software includes voxel-based 3D filters for use with 3D volumetric, time-lapse and other 3D image sets. A built-in OpenGL 3D viewer allows for interactive 3D volume rendering.


Enhanced Analysis Features

A number of advanced image analysis tools are included in Image-Pro Plus Version 6.0. New analysis features include color management tools for achieving true color fidelity for your entire imaging system, the ability to classify over 100,000 objects per image frame, and tools to export data via DDE to statistical programs like Origin® and Microsoft® Excel.  

Image Acquisition Analysis Processing System Description

A computer based Image Acquisition, Processing, and Analysis system allows Scientists, Engineers, Researchers, Systems Integrators, and OEM's to capture video images into the digital world of computers, where they can view, enhance, analyze, measure, annotate, archive, and transmit them.

An imaging system consists of the following components in addition to the computer:

  • An image input device such as analog and digital cameras (both monochrome and color), scanners, VCR's, video microscopes, medical diagnostic equipment, and previously digitized images retrieved from networks, disks, CD-ROMs, e-mail, or web sites
  • A frame grabber, or image capture computer add-in board, and any associated interface cables (not needed for previously acquired/digitized images)
  • Software to acquire, analyze, measure, process, and store images.

These products have been used in real-world applications for close to twenty years, and a niche market has evolved, served by numerous manufacturers producing frame grabber and image processing add-in boards, analysis and processing software, and related peripheral devices.

This is the market served by I-CUBE.   We resell and integrate products which solve specific customer application requirements.  Our knowledge of available products and years of applications experience in a wide variety of fields benefits our customers by:

  • Saving them hours of reviewing data sheets and speaking to salespeople
  • Assuring component compatibility (frame grabber/software, frame grabber/camera, cables)
  • Selecting products which satisfy application requirements while minimizing cost

Since we sell most of the products we recommend, there is no additional cost to the customer for this service.  And since we have no obligation to any one vendor, we are free to recommend the best products for any given application; we carefully select products from each manufacturer's line.







Definiens Reveals an Integrated Data Management Approach For Image Analysis in Life Sciences Enterprises

Filed under: Europe, Europe, Press Releases — Fred @ 2:00 pm

Munich, Germany – July 18th , 2007 – Definiens, the number one Enterprise Image Intelligence™ company, today revealed the Definiens Enterprise Image IntelligenceTM Suite 7, available immediately. The latest version of the powerful image analysis platform provides Life Science organizations with superior data management capabilities. Definiens Data Management is an open framework that gives organizations easy access to all relevant information acquired in image analysis. The wealth of image information gathered in the various phases of the drug development process can now be integrated across and exchanged within the entire organization. It provides professionals with the best intelligence on which to base better business decisions.

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are under intense pressure to reduce costs and increase productivity. The research and development for new drugs generates vast amounts of complex data. This data is difficult to access since it exists in numerous departmental proprietary IT solutions. According to a recent report from research analyst Frost & Sullivan, “informatics helps to store, retrieve, sort, organize, analyze loads of chemical, biological and mathematical data and arrive at critical and accurate decisions sooner… It is estimated that the integration of bioinformatics can actually shrink the timeline by a couple of years. This saving of two to three years will dramatically cut down the cost.”

Definiens Data Management is designed to intelligently manage all image analysis related data on an enterprise level. A central repository automatically stores ruleware and any types of image analysis results and statistics. Powerful and flexible search capabilities quickly locate information, workspaces, projects, results and ruleware while user-defined queries can be saved to enable common retrieval tasks to be reused and automated. Users can also add metadata to better describe objects and perform related searches. Analysis results can be connected to other contextual information using common informatics tools.

In addition to its advanced Data Management capabilities, the Definiens Enterprise Image Intelligence Suite 7 includes the following enhancements:

- Faster image analysis results through improved viewing and visualization tools: with ‘multi-magnification views’ users can easily identify areas of interest, zoom in and out and view different magnifications; new ‘heatmaps’ display results clearly, even over a range of tissue samples.

- Easy creation of new image analysis applications: the new powerful and easy-to-use graphical environment is tailored to needs of scientists, pathologists and users without programming experience, enabling them to configure their own applications.

– Simplified management with a new web-based administrator: centralized management of Definiens eCognition Server, Definiens’ high performance grid computing environment, reduces administration costs and enables different groups to share the same computing infrastructure.

- Full integration capabilities across the enterprise leverage existing investments: Definiens Enterprise Image Intelligence Suite 7 collaborates seamlessly with standard databases and third party information management solutions. The open platform and a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) integrate any business process, data source and data target and enable the reuse of existing analysis algorithms.

“We provide biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies with a technology that helps them to rapidly analyze and interpret cellular, tissue or whole body images. Definiens Data Management enables a single view of all the knowledge obtained in image analysis processes. With our new platform, Definiens takes business decision support to a new level,” commented Dr. Wolfgang Rencken, Executive Vice President Technology and Products at Definiens.
