Title: Introducing Zoomify Image
Authors: Smith, Adam
Issue Date: 28-Feb-2007
Abstract: Zoomify Image is a mature product for easily publishing large, high resolution images on the Web. End users view these images with existing Web browser software as quickly as they do normal, downsampled images. A Flash based Zoomifyer client asynchronously streams image data to the Web browser as needed, resulting in response times approaching those of desktop applications using minimal bandwidth. The author, a librarian at Cornell University and the principle architect of a small, open source company, worked closely with Zoomify to produce a cross-platform, open source implementation of that company's image processing software and discusses how to easily deploy the product into a widely used Web publishing environment. Limitations are also discussed as are areas of improvement and alternatives.
