ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 27, 2012 — Media Cybernetics has announced that Image-Pro Premier image processing and analysis software now supports Surveyor Workspace mosaic format (.sws) image files acquired with Objective Imaging Ltd.’s Surveyor Turboscan acquisition systems. The new mosaic file format support is available in the 9.0.1 release of Image-Pro Premier 64-bit and further extends the software’s image analysis tools. Researchers can quickly acquire large image mosaics at camera frame rates using Objective Imaging’s Surveyor Turboscan system. These .sws mosaic files can then be opened in Image-Pro Premier 64-bit with all calibration data maintained. Researchers can pan and zoom and draw manual regions of interest to obtain distance and area measurements. More advanced image processing and analysis such as automatic spot or cell finding can be achieved by extracting a portion of the large mosaic image to analyze. Applications include life sciences research, digital pathology, quality control, industrial inspection and physical sciences. Image processing steps can be applied to all opened images or entire folders of images via the batch processing tools. Smart Segmentation can be used to segment challenging images that have faintly colored objects, textures and uneven backgrounds. Custom Apps offer step-by-step work flows to guide users through the image analysis processes. Users can download apps from the Media Cybernetics Solutions Zone website, or choose to develop and package their own to share with colleagues.
