In Imaris you can view and interact with large datasets within seconds. Simply download the FileConverter, convert your existing dataset to IMS and test the speed of Imaris' rendering with a free trial of Imaris 9.
ImarisFileConverter's redesigned GUI and batch conversion efficiently convert multiple large datasets to save you time. The resulting ims files can then be opened very quickly within Imaris.
Fast visualization of terabyte sized images is all about quickly loading to the graphics hardware those data that are necessary for visualizing the current point of view and loading as little superfluous data as possible. The IMS File Format and the visualization pipeline achieve this with the following features:
NEW Imaris 9 searches the file reader plugin directory for DLLs that have the FileReader API. If the file format contains multiple resolution levels Imaris will quickly render those files in native mode.
The new Surface rendering technology in Imaris 9 adopts Imaris' proven Volume rendering technology based on a multi-resolution octree. Now it's possible to visualize Surfaces of hundreds of Gigabytes in size. With this technology Imaris 9 can interactively render massive Surfaces consisting of billions of triangles.
The technology that enables Imaris 9 fast rendering of large surfaces is based on the following features:
Imaris 9 computes Surfaces in a block wise and multithreaded fashion to efficiently analyze large images (hundreds of Gigabytes). Thanks to this ground breaking new technology the computation will be possible for big images and will be significantly faster than in previous Imaris versions. Our test images for Surfaces calculation time presented below are multiples of Wasp_embryo.ims created by using "Add slices" in Imaris. System specs: Win 7.1, 192GB RAM (Imaris internal memory limit of 64GB), CPU Intel Xeon E5-2687 (x2), Graphics Nvidia Quadro k5000, Data read from HDD, Cache set to SSD.
This patented solution brings a novel volume visualization approach to tracing, making is faster and more efficient than ever before.
Fresh functionality has been added to the Autopath tracing method to be optimized for large 3D images, greatly improving speed and efficiency.
Autodepth now makes drawing filaments much easier, and introduces improved support for large 3D images.
