IIPImage is an advanced high-performance feature-rich imaging server system for Web-based streamed viewing and zooming of ultra high-resolution images. It is designed to be fast and bandwidth-efficient with low processor and memory requirements. The system can comfortably handle gigapixel size images as well as advanced image features such as both 8- and 16-bit depths, CIELAB colorimetric images, and scientific imagery such as multispectral images. The server is cross-platform and can handle both TIFF and JPEG2000. Viewers exist in AJAX Javascript, Flash, and Java.
