On-Demand TrueZoom for Internet Applications

Proprietary and patented imaging technologies delivering the immersive detail that billions of people are asking for when zooming on internet applications.

Try it Here!

  1. Zoom on the image with either pinch-zoom (touch) or ctrl-mousewheel (desktop) for TrueZoom On-Demand to download increased image detail. 
  2. Just keep zooming for Extended Zoom! (mobile – click on the icon that appears for extended zoom).
  3. Zoom out or click outside the image to return to the page (go back on mobile).

Executive Summary

Every day billions of people zoom in on website and social media images to see them better. But zooming just makes images big and blurry because internet applications limit image quality to get us those images fast. But wait - if billions of people want to see images better then shouldn’t they have that option?

Introducing HifiPix On-Demand Zoom – a suite of proprietary next generation technologies now for sale for delivering higher quality images on-demand as a premium option for internet applications. Better images. Faster.

The highlights ...

  • TrueZoom On-Demand. Never deliver more quality than users can see. But when they zoom in on an image that’s the trigger to give them what they want. TrueZoom On-Demand detects zooming and provides a number of ways to improve the image users are actually looking at – from simple replacement with a downloaded higher quality image to more advanced approaches of adding downloaded extra resolution data to the image they already have.
  • Extended Zoom. Extended zoom visually expands the image at the same time they zoom in, with optional zoom level beyond browser zooming, so users use as much of their display device as possible, then returns the image to normal size when they zoom back out.
  • Progressive PNG. Representing a core asset of on-demand zooming, Progressive PNG (pPNG) uses extra data to increase the actual resolution of an image to progressively higher resolutions supporting either lossy or lossless compression. No more downloading multiple images. pPNG is, quite simply, the fastest way to deliver high quality images with multiple resolutions. Offer your users 2X, 4X or even 8X premium on-demand resolution!
  • Front End Image Enhancement. Whether it’s a custom application or a browser webpage, HifiPix has multiple patented algorithms to quickly (ie using very low processor overhead) enhance the quality of your delivered images even without additional data downloading so you can give your users the on-demand experience they're asking for.

About HifiPix

HifiPix is the technology licensing spin-off of Panamorph, Inc., the world’s leading and most recommended anamorphic projection lens manufacturer and developer of associated digital video processing algorithms for the distribution and presentation of major motion pictures. As Panamorph develops new innovations in video applications these technologies are adapted to the processing, distribution and display of fixed images through HifiPix to support a wide variety of alternate applications. For example, Panamorph’s patented Multi-Resolution Encoding, originally developed to provide both letterbox and anamorphic cinema format movie content on the same transport medium, has evolved into the Progressive PNG (pPNG) file format for delivering multiple increasing resolutions of the same image by leveraging the use of extra data image files. It all serves the same purpose – delivering the highest fidelity imaging experience possible with today’s content.
