Nikon Instruments Inc. announces EclipseNet software for use with its DXM 1200 and DN 100 digital cameras. This software includes an image archiving and database engine that uses standard Microsoft tools. It is designed to read all common image file formats, including bmp, tif and gif. The software's native file-saving format is jpeg2000, which enables users to track image changes. EclipseNet has modes for interactive measurement and exports to clipboards or files in programs such as Excel. The company says that the image size is limited only by system capacity.
