March 6, 2013 — Claron Technology will debut at the 2013 HIMSS conference its new BlackBerry 10 app for the Nil family of medical imaging viewers. The Nil app supports anytime, anywhere Web-based review of a full range of medical imaging modalities and reports and capitalizes on the enhanced multimedia and multi-touch functionality of the new BlackBerry 10 platform.

The Nil app for BlackBerry 10 is compatible with the newly launched BlackBerry Z10 smartphone, as well as the coming BlackBerry Q10. It is available as a free download on the BlackBerry World storefront. 

With single-touch, ultra-fast functionality, the Claron app accesses a Nil viewer running either on Claron’s NilCloud or a medical facility’s dedicated Nil server. It complements Claron’s zero-footprint Nil Web viewer available on any desktop, tablet or other smartphones.

Nil provides medical facilities with an ideal complement to their existing picture archive and communications system (PACS) solution for secure, streamlined image access beyond the enterprise or existing IT infrastructure. Nil enables image access on-the-fly and takes advantage of highly optimized client-server communication to remain responsive even over limited bandwidth and high latency connections, such as cellular 3G.

Innovative Nil technology provides authorized users with sophisticated exam viewing and manipulation capabilities, including 2-D, multi-planar reformatting (MPR), 3-D and echocardiology with full cine. Its window/level, zoom, pan, rotate and related features enable comprehensive image manipulation in either single or multiple window display.

“Claron is committed to providing the benefits of high-quality, convenient image viewing on the latest mobile platforms. As an early and groundbreaking mobile platform with a high level of security, BlackBerry has always had a strong following in healthcare enterprises and is important to our user base,” says Claudio Gatti, co-founder and co-CEO of Claron. “This new app takes full advantage of the BlackBerry 10 platform’s advanced multimedia and security features. Nil users have been growing rapidly and we anticipate a strong response to our newest offering.”

“Healthcare workers are an important part of the BlackBerry customer base, and we’re pleased that Claron has launched the Nil app for BlackBerry 10,” says Peter Ng, senior director, Alliances Strategy and Business Development at BlackBerry. “The new BlackBerry 10 smartphones offer significantly faster performance and higher resolution displays—excellent for viewing medical images.”
