Interactive Editing of Massive Imagery Made Simple:

This paper presents a simple framework for progressive processing of high-resolution images with minimal resources. We demonstrate this framework's effectiveness by implementing an adaptive, multi-resolution solver for gradient-based image processing that, for the first time, is capable of handling gigapixel imagery in real time.  MORE

Game 7 Stanley Cup Final Riots Wall

As part of Vancouver's catharsis after the Game 7 Stanley Cup Final riots, hundreds of Vancouverites offered words of encouragement, support, sympathy and apologies by writing messages on the boarded-up storefront of The Bay, one of the worst hit buildings.

The image, made up of 472 photos, is a mosaic of 7 boarded store windows. The final hi-res file is 107,271 X 8,173 or 877 megapixels  MORE

Network Optix - EVE Media Player Demo - Zoomed Analysis of SF Quake 1906

Here's a short 1080p video clip of me using EVE to examine an awesome 50MP still shot of the aftemath of the 1906 San Francisco super quake.

It's astounding to think of the resolution capabilities of photography technology over 100 years old and then use technology of tomorrow to unlock its majesty today.  MORE

Can You See Me Now?

Recently I was quoted by Larry Greenemeier of Scientific American Magazine in his March Article: Imagine snapping a panoramic picture from the top of the Empire State Building, then zooming in on a speck to reveal a quarter lying on the sidewalk. That's the promise of single-shot Gigapixel cameras-cameras that shoot images composed of at least one billion pixels, or picture elements. Apart from their obvious appeal to photographers, Gigapixel images also hold tremendous potential for law enforcement and the military.  MORE>

GigaPixel Surveillance in our future

I recently wrote an article on GigaPixel Surveillance and sent it to over 300+ members in the GigaPixel Surveillance group on LinkedIn. The article starts with: I have been asked if I really believe that GigaPixel technology will be used for security surveillance, after all we’re talking about a digital image bitmap composed of one billion pixels (picture elements), 1000 times the information captured by a 1 megapixel camera.

GigaPixel images help in disease diagnosis, grading and prognosis.

"The advent of digital whole-slide scanners in recent years has spurred a revolution in imaging technology for histopathology," according to Metin N. Gurcan, Ph.D., an associate professor of Biomedical Informatics at The Ohio State University Medical Center. "The large multi GigaPixel images produced by these scanners (Gigapixel Camera) contain a wealth of information potentially useful for computer-assisted disease diagnosis, grading and prognosis."   MORE >
