LuraTech Introduces Toolkit for Web Delivery of Images

LuraTech, Inc. ( announced its LuraWave JP2 Image Content Server (ICS) v1.04, a new imaging software toolkit that enables the delivery of JPEG2000 images, document collections, and their respective metadata through browser-based viewing applications without any plug-ins, Active X components, or additional viewing software. ICS is designed to provide a low-storage, low-bandwidth solution for the delivery of high-end digital images.

ICS is targeted at any organization that posts online digital versions of books, artwork, manuscripts, maps, geospatial photographs, or medical content. The ICS engine converts JPEG2000 images to JPEG and delivers them on-the-fly to the end user's browser-based viewing application. The software toolkit allows the creation of customized viewing applications with advanced image-viewing features, such as panning, zooming, and page turning, and eliminates downloading delays and the need for any additional viewing software.

ICS is the result of 2 years of development and 6 months of beta testing at several large organizations such as the Library and Archives Canada and the Missouri Botanical Gardens.
