New Image Compression Technologies Created for 64-bit Platforms

May 19, 2008 - Pegasus Imaging released PICTools medical image compression technologies for 64-bit Sun Solaris platforms, including compression and decompression of JPEG 2000 (including JPIP, 3D, high bit depths), Lossy JPEG (sequential), Lossless JPEG (including high bit depths) and JPEG-LS (lossless and near lossless) image files.

These image compression technologies are standards-based, and optimized for speed, size and quality by Pegasus Imaging scientists. They are currently available for 32-bit Windows, Linux, Solaris and IBM AIX; and also for 64-bit platforms including Windows, Linux and Solaris. They are available as high-performance, low-level C libraries in the PICTools Software Development Kit (SDK).

PICTools technologies are licensed per technology used, per platform. PICTools technologies can be ported on request to other environments that are not currently supported.

A license and support agreement may be obtained directly from Pegasus Imaging.
