IDELIX wins "Imaging Solution of the Year" 01.16.2003

PDT recognized as a practical, forward-looking technology by Advanced Imaging Magazine.

IDELIX Software Inc. announced that Pliable Display Technology (PDT) has been recognized as the "Imaging Solution of the Year" by Advanced Imaging Magazine. IDELIX will be showcasing PDT at the West 2003 Conference, on until January 16th at the San Diego Convention Center (Booth #1337). Official announcement of this award will be made in the January issue of Advanced Imaging Magazine.

"The recipients of the annual 'Imaging Solution of the Year' award are selected by the editorial team of Advanced Imaging for technical excellence, solutions, expertise and imaging difficulty," states Len Yencharis, Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Imaging Magazine. "We chose IDELIX from the more than two hundred and fifty entries because they not only met the technical challenge with a workable solution, but they also provided the industry with a forward-looking technology that can be easily deployed today."

IDELIX was nominated by Boeing Autometric, who integrated PDT within their SoftPlotter and KDSP softcopy photogrammetry products. "With PDT, our customers are reporting a 20% efficiency gain within the manual workflow processes of photogrammetric vector collection and terrain editing from aerial and satellite imagery," says Todd Ham, Product Manager for Boeing Autometric. "Performance improvements of this magnitude are unprecedented in a field as mature as manual feature collection in imagery."

"IDELIX has been working very hard to be a technology leader in Information Visualization," says IDELIX President and CEO, Bijan Sanii. "All of our efforts and resources have been devoted to becoming a commercial leader in our field of expertise; it is extremely gratifying to be recognized by a third party for our accomplishments in this space."

Pliable Display Technology's "detail-in-context" functionality has also caught the attention of the National Image and Mapping Agency (NIMA), enabling IDELIX to become an integral partner in a consortium lead by the Eastman Kodak Company. To fulfill the requirements of NIMA's Soft Copy Search Program, Kodak's Commercial and Government Systems unit assembled a group of best-in-class companies that includes IDELIX Software Inc., HP/Compaq, Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions, Paragon Imaging, and Toshiba Corporation e-Solutions Company.

The announcement of the award came shortly after Version 2.1 of the PDT Software Development Kit and the PDT 3d SDK were released in early December of 2002. The platform-independent PDT SDKs are written in ANSI C++ and support OpenGL, but also include the PDT Image Warper for hardware-independent rendering of images. Evaluation copies of these SDKs are available to qualified applicants through the IDELIX Partner Program.
