2 A Unique Opportunity for EOSDIS The explosion of advanced technology coupled with a more sophisticated, insatiable demand for information has created a need for accessing big images, real fast.

3 What is MrSID? MrSID stands for Multiresolution Seamless Image Database MrSID is a powerful wavelet-based compressor, viewer and file format for massive raster images that enables instantaneous viewing and manipulation of massive images locally, and over networks while maintaining maximum image quality. MrSID stands for Multiresolution Seamless Image Database MrSID is a powerful wavelet-based compressor, viewer and file format for massive raster images that enables instantaneous viewing and manipulation of massive images locally, and over networks while maintaining maximum image quality.

4 MrSID Product Description MrSID technology includes a full line of compressors and viewers tailored for different users. MrSID Compress typically compresses 10Mb to 50 Gb images and displays them in seconds. Primary benefits include instantaneous browsing of massive images and increased storage capacity.

Three patents issued. LizardTech established as exclusive commercialization agent through U.S. Technology Transfer Act. LizardTech developed commercial MrSID application. First commercial product introduced in March Originally developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Years of research & development behind the technology. Same team developed wavelet-based image standard used by FBI. Three patents issued. LizardTech established as exclusive commercialization agent through U.S. Technology Transfer Act. LizardTech developed commercial MrSID application. First commercial product introduced in March 1997.

7 MrSID Commercialization LizardTech responsible for standardization and extension of technology. Broad-based industry and user support. Initial market focus includes Mapping/GIS, Document Management, and Medical Imaging. Goal: Make MrSID a standard like Microsoft Word ®, Adobe PhotoShop ®, and ArcView GIS ®.

19 Wavelet-Based Competitors Other wavelet-based image compression products all share the same limitations MrSID solves: Lack of mission critical image quality. Limited size of image that can be compressed. Lack of integrated selective decompression. Lack of single, cross-platform file format. Lack of legacy system support. Lack of imaging and mapping industry support. The ability to compress images of virtually any size without edge artifacts or seams and Selective Decompression are the basis for the patented intellectual property in MrSID.
