Building on a mutual desire to bring the best performance to our customers, HP and Hexagon Geospatial have teamed up to fine-tune our products for peak performance. While Hexagon Geospatial works on new ways to help you solve complex Spatial and Spectral problems, HP is busy trying to optimize their workstations to lighten your processing load.
Our relationship is so beneficial that HP has been at the Hexagon Geospatial office in Norcross, GA shooting video footage for a case study on how our efforts to improve performance have been a fertile ground for both of our companies.
In the shoot, Paul Beaty, Senior Product Manager for ERDAS IMAGINE and ERDAS ER Mapper products, discussed how the high end computing power of the HP workstations have helped to improve not only the performance of tasks like mosaicking thousands of images, but also improved the speed of day-to-day tasks like large image exploitation.
Bruce Chaplin, Product Line Director for ERDAS APOLLO and ECW, discussed the vast improvements the HP Z Workstations have afforded ECW image compression tools. With ECW technology, you can compress large image files to a fraction of the original file size without compromising visual integrity of the image. This means that you can store large quantities of image data at a fraction of the price and serve it out to field crews quickly and inexpensively.
HP provides our development teams with some of their finest Z Workstations, and works closely with our engineers to test and validate the latest versions of our software on their latest hardware. This collaboration has allowed us to achieve groundbreaking improvements in ERDAS IMAGINE and ERDAS ECW/JP2 SDK performance, along with improvements to other systems.
By ensuring that our software and HP hardware work together, Hexagon Geospatial and HP ensure that you can immediately benefit from optimized performance.
