Now With Support for MrSID Generation 4 (MG4)
SEATTLE — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 5, 2011 — LizardTech®, a division of Celartem Inc. and a provider of software solutions for managing and distributing geospatial content, announced the release of version 7 of Express Server® image distribution software. Express Server 7, designed to enable geospatial professionals to distribute high-resolution raster imagery, supports the MrSID® Generation 4 (MG4™) format, which uses alpha-band transparency for better looking mosaics and enables the delivery of specified bands from multi- and hyperspectral imagery.
With Express Server’s support for distributing hyperspectral data users can use it to serve up to 255 bands of geospatial data in MrSID format. Whether they need to serve out 4-band color images containing an infrared channel, take advantage of the latest 8-band satellite imagery, or distribute high-resolution RGB datasets, Express Server has all angles covered.
Also new in version 7 is support for 64-bit systems. Among other things, this enables users to allocate more memory to caching, which improves Express Server performance.
“ Express Server is the fastest, most stable, and easiest way to distribute high-resolution raster imagery,” said Jon Skiffington, director of product management. “And now with support for MG4 in the latest version, anyone serving imagery can deliver better looking mosaics and take advantage of multi- and hyperspectral imagery and the performance gains of using a 64-bit operating system."
