Project Phoenix Gives Rise to ERDAS IMAGINE Viewer of the Future

ERDAS' Project PhoenixProject Phoenix, ERDAS’ latest mission to provide peak software performance to the geospatial industry, is well under way and promises to significantly advance ERDAS IMAGINE’s viewer technology. Leveraging multi-core CPUs and GPUs, the Phoenix viewer enables smooth continuous zooming and roaming, real-time processing, and orthorectification on-the-fly. Additionally, the new viewer technology enables ERDAS IMAGINE users to view thousands of images simultaneously and toggle from
a flat, projected image display to a 3D Globe with a single button-click.

ERDAS ECW for ArcGISEnhanced compression wavelet (ECW) is a high-performance compressed file format designed specifically for geospatial imagery. When compared to other image compression formats, ERDAS’ patented ECW technology provides the industry’s fastest decompression and compression rates possible.

ERDAS provides a range of products enabling full use of this unique technology, from creating, reading, and serving ECW files, to enabling their use within browsers, other commercial applications, or applications you create.
