BETHESDA, Md., June 6, 2012 — Media Cybernetics is offering its Image-Pro Premier image processing and analysis software package for applications including life sciences research, quality control, industrial inspection, and forensic and physical sciences. It provides intuitive tools that facilitate capture, processing, enhancement, measurement, comparison, analysis, automation, and sharing of images and data. Features include an intuitive user interface and advanced analysis tools. The software includes 64- and 32-bit support; intuitive macros and app-building tools; improved ways to automatically segment, classify and measure objects; and an extensive set of tools for customizing work flow. It accelerates the pace of life sciences and industrial analysis, enabling users to acquire rapid events or experiments that last for long periods. It can not only use the RAM available on the host computer, but also stream multigigabyte movies directly to the hard drive. Multiresolution files are supported. Image processing steps can be applied to all opened images or to folders of images via batch processing tools. The smart segmentation tool can identify and segment challenging images that have faintly colored objects, textured objects and uneven backgrounds. Macros and apps are easy to edit with the new graphical drag-and-drop editing interface. The code-based editing tools can be used to test, edit and debug scripts. Custom apps enable easy design of step-by-step work flows to guide users through their image analysis processes. Users can download apps from the company’s Solutions Zone website, or choose to develop and package their own to share with colleagues. Life sciences applications include bright-field microscopy, cell and marine biology, and fluorescence imaging. Industrial applications include automotive manufacturing, forensics, pharmaceutical development and semiconductors.
