The Imaging Computing Server (ICS) is a partner product for the Volocity® 3D Image Analysis Software. It takes advantage of powerful supercomputing to provide enhanced performance for some of the key functions of the Volocity software, so that you can increase your productivity and achieve faster results for your research.
The Imaging Computing Server (ICS) distributes various, complex parts of a task between additional processors or nodes and therefore accelerates operations. It reduces processing time for users performing processor intensive operations such as deconvolution using Volocity Restoration or image stitching. The ICS may benefit users working with large images and/or large numbers of measurements that stretch the current capabilities of a multi-processor workstation.
- Accelerates key functions of the Volocity software for greater performance
- Increases productivity by processing large datasets using multiple computer processors
- A resource that may be shared between many Volocity users
- Flexible node numbers
Accelerate your cellular research
The Imaging Computing Server (ICS) is available with any number of processing units, or nodes, so that you can choose the most cost-effective performance solution for your application and budget. The more nodes you have, the faster your system will perform, so you are only limited by the number of processing units you choose to have.
The ICS accelerates the following functions in the Volocity software:
- Post acquisition stitching
- Ray tracing
- Noise removal
- 4D measurements (excluding tracking)
