Image Registration and Recognition Software developed by Dr. Charles Stewart at DualAlign LLC is breaking new ground in medical imaging, satellite imaging and defense imaging. The breakthrough software is helping professionals automatically align and stitch images even if the originals were taken from different cameras, of varying scale, in different modalities, at different distances, with physical changes, or little overlap.
Clifton Park, NY (PRWEB) July 14, 2009 -- The development of novel image registration and recognition software, i2k Align, by DualAlign LLC is promising to become the foundation for future innovations in medical, satellite and defense imaging applications. The novel software, which comes packaged with an API for custom software development, is fully automatic and very robust. i2k Align is helping professionals automatically register and stitch images even if the originals were taken from different camera systems, of varying scale, in different modalities, at different distances, with physical changes, or little overlap.
"i2k Align is the most sophisticated software package in the world for registering and aligning two-dimensional images and for constructing multi-image montages," says Dr. Charles Stewart, DualAlign LLC's CSO.
Applications to this technology are already found in markets as varied as medicine, defense, satellite, energy, biometrics, security, and photography. One such application in medical imaging enables a doctor to align retinal images to detect glaucoma in a patient, while a certain photographic application allows a photographer to take multiple photos of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and convert it into one file for viewing.
According to Remy Arteaga, DualAlign's CEO, the software "has been very well received." Mr. Arteaga goes on to say that "Textron Inc., SET Corporation and National Institute of Health have all purchased advanced copies of the software and are very impressed with the API for custom applications. There are numerous Retinal Imaging firms that have contacted us about licensing our software including Topcon Corporation and we have two deals underway."
At the core of the i2k Align technology is the powerful, new i2align image registration algorithm, which both decides whether or not two images overlap and computes the inter-image transformation (pixel location mapping function). Hence it is both a registration and recognition algorithm.
DualAlign provides image registration and recognition software that can enhance digital imaging systems. Four different software packages are available with i2k Align including Windows (XP and Vista) and Mac (OS X 10.4 and 10.5). Each software package comes with an API for custom software development.
