Star-P image function library
16 January 2009
Interactive Supercomputing has added powerful new imaging capabilities to its Star-P technical computing software, boosting productivity by executing functions up to 30 times faster than competing tools.
The Star-P imaging function library was developed with the help of Anona Labs, an Israeli software company specialising in advanced image processing technologies for interactive numerical analysis environments. The library is ideal for use in life sciences, defence 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.
With this new built-in library, scientists, engineers and analysts can process extremely large image data sets and perform complicated imaging analysis on HPCs with great speed and ease. Star-P enables users to create applications on their desktops using familiar mathematical tools - such as Matlab and Python - and then run them instantly and interactively on parallel HPCs. Problems that can take hours to run in Matlab or other environments on the desktop can often be run in minutes with Star-P's image processing function library.
