Digital Image Processing

Wolfram Research announced the release of Digital Image Processing, a new Mathematica application package with a collection of fundamental and advanced image processing tools. Its functionality is integrated into Mathematica, allowing users to perform much more sophisticated analyses with it than with standard image processing software. With Digital Image Processing, one can import and export more than 15 standard image formats; use grayscale, RGB, HSV, and CMYK color models; apply dozens of predefined filters and filter-design algorithms; perform region-of-interest processing over arbitrary polygonal regions; and smooth and sharpen images and reduce noise. Digital Image Processing is designed for use with Mathematica 4 or later versions and is available for several platforms, including Linux (PC).

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
