PALO ALTO, CA and EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 11/25/12 -- Fovia Medical, Inc., a world leader in imaging technology and the developer of High Definition Volume Rendering®, and Blackford Analysis Ltd., creator of unparalleled registration technology using algorithms originally developed for astrophysicists, today announced plans to deliver compatible SDKs to the medical advanced visualization market.
Blackford Analysis's Blackford Fusion software accelerates the challenging process of image study comparison by enabling radiologists to pinpoint areas of interest in one study and have those areas instantly, automatically and accurately linked to the same points in separate MR, CT or PET scans. Concurrently, Fovia's scalable, CPU-based, thin-client HDVR® software provides critical advanced visualization "on-the-fly" via the cloud, local networks, or as an integrated component of existing architectures.
By combining Blackford Fusion and HDVR® technologies, a medical original equipment manufacturer can deliver ubiquitous, split-second access to automatically registered datasets, thereby enabling radiologists to spend more time on analysis and decision-making. As volumetric datasets increase in size and complexity, this combined power will become an essential component in every OEM's offering.
"Fovia is a recognized leader in the advanced visualization field, and we are excited to integrate with their best-in-class volume rendering engine," said Ben Panter, Chief Executive Officer of Blackford Analysis. "Together our technologies can improve radiology productivity and increase the success rate of patient treatment."
"We are thrilled to have a partner with complementary, high-performance software that is literally out-of-this world," said Ken Fineman, Chief Executive Officer of Fovia, who commented on Blackford Analysis's astrophysics-based algorithms. "Our SDKs work well together, providing immediate benefits for medical vendors, radiologists and most importantly, patients."
About Fovia, Inc.
Fovia, Inc. was founded in 2003 to address the challenge of data explosion -- the exponentially increasing amount of data being acquired by modern imaging modalities. The firm has developed a CPU-based, High Definition Volume Rendering software solution that leverages and scales with multi-core, multi-processor and multi-threaded generational processor development. Fovia's HDVR Connect and HDVR Mobile solutions are more scalable, cost effective, flexible, and easily deployable on an enterprise-wide basis than GPU or other hardware-based approaches.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
