ISC speeds up imaging functions
Interactive Supercomputing (ISC) has added new imaging capabilities to its Star-P technical computing software, including a built-in image processing function library.

The Star-P imaging function library was developed with the help of Anona Labs, an Israeli software company specializing in advanced image processing technologies for interactive numerical analysis environments. The company said the library is “ideal for use in life sciences, defense and any other application involving complex imaging problems with high computational requirements or with extremely large data sources, such as medical imaging, microscopy, surveillance and biometrics.”

Star-P's new image processing function library has a set of functions for image manipulation, analysis, digital imaging, computer vision and digital image processing. Its built-in capabilities include image file I/O, color space transformations, linear filtering, mathematical morphology, texture analysis, pattern recognition, image statistics and others. All functions interoperate seamlessly with Star-P math functions including data-parallel FFT and other functions important for large scale parallel image processing.

The new Image Processing Function library is available immediately as part of Star-P version 2.7, ISC said.
