MrSID Integrates with MicroStation V8

Users to benefit from high-quality images.

LizardTech Inc., Seattle, Wash., announced the integration of its MrSID file format inside MicroStation V8 from Bentley Systems Inc., Exton, Pa. With native viewing support, MicroStation V8 users can now leverage MrSID to dramatically reduce the costs and time associated with capturing, storing, sharing and using high-quality aerial imagery.

MrSID, the image format standard for geospatial professionals, reduces high-resolution images to less than five percent of their original file size while maintaining original image quality. Bentley's MicroStation V8 is a significant advance in the company's engineering design platform. This latest version of MicroStation brings significant new functionality to the product, including support for MrSID, which allows users to more effectively employ high-quality imagery files as backdrop graphics to their existing vector data or for more accurate data creation.
