"High-end Digital Image Enhancement Application from Form & Vision Integrates LuraWave Compression Technology Using Wavelets."

"LuraTech Inc., leader in next generation image and document solutions, and Form & Vision GmbH, developer of high-end professional digital image enhancement software, today announced the integration of LuraTech's wavelet-based image compression technology, LuraWave(R), into Form & Vision's latest digital imaging application, Eclipse 3.1.4. With the innovative LuraWave compression technology, users of Eclipse can now reduce the size of large image files without compromising its image quality. LuraWave brings significant benefits to Eclipse by enabling user-controlled image compression rates and by allowing images to be saved either losslessly or minimally-lossy. Depending on the image, LuraWave can achieve lossless compression rates ranging from a ratio of 1:2 to 1:3. The integration of the LuraWave image compression technology into Eclipse will help individuals significantly reduce image file size when sending images to other Eclipse users via email. Using LuraWave images will reduce memory storage requirements and quicken the transfer of image files over the Internet while retaining high image quality."
