Albuquerque, New Mexico, September 1, 2001 --
Khoral Inc. today announced powerful new features for the company's flagship
software that simplifies and streamlines the visualization, understanding and
management of complex image and data processing routines. Khoros Pro 2001™
version 2 gives software developers and visual programmers JAVA development
support, tear away release capabilities, new visualization
tools, in addition to colorspace models and interactive look-up tables in an
New Features Include JAVA Development
"For programmers who must adapt traditional applications to the Internet era,
Khoros Pro 2001 Version 2 offers a flexible software development solution,"
said Jack Whittier, President of Khoral Research, Inc. "We give developers a
visual programming environment where its easy to create and maintain JAVA
applets and applications." Khoros Pro 2001 version 2 now supports JAVA - in
addition to ANSI, C and C++, Mfiles and traditional Khoros programs.
Easier Application Deployment for Programmers
Version 2 of Khoros Pro 2001 makes releasing applications easier than ever.
"Our new tear away features support the release of application deliverables
that are self-contained, compact and end-user friendly," noted Danielle
Argiro, Vice President of Technology. With the latest release, customers can
un-plug and play with kroutines and xvroutines independent from the Khoros Pro
2001 environment to generate standalone binaries with online help pages.
New Visualization Tools
The Khoros Pro 2001 version 2 spectre tool simplifies the process of multi-
and hyper-spectral image visualization in Khoros. Spectre allows users to
highlight image features by selecting any combination of bands from a
multi-band image and display them as red, green and blue. "This new release
makes it easier to write programs as fully-integrated image processing
routines," said Argiro. The new image registration toolbox offers 12 operators,
6 libraries, and 18 example workspace objects you can access from a drop-down
menu in the Khoros visual programming environment.
New Colorspace Models
Supporting the full spectrum of color for visual analysis, the Version 2
release allows users to edit in RGB, CMY, HSV, HLS, YIQ, XYZ, UVW, and GREY
colorspaces. Khoros Pro 2001 v2 supports a full variety of colorspaces so
users can interactively modify colormaps using a new interactive lookup table
feature. The new interactive look-up table feature provides three plots (red,
green and blue) to modify colormap values for an image interactively.
Version 2 More User Friendly
"Khoros Pro continues to provide cutting-edge tools to simplify complex
computing and application development challenges," Whittier said. With the new
Version 2 release, customers will save time when manipulating and displaying
images because Khoros automatically saves preference settings and turbo
charges two-dimensional Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT) with a 10-fold speed
increase for larger images. According to Whittier, "Version 2 of Khoros Pro
2001 is a robust release with plenty of options to maximize productivity in
image processing, data visualization, and the development, deployment and
maintenance of a wide variety of applications."
