            Accusoft Pegasus has been granted a US Patent 7,609,895 for the method of implementing an image decoding operation which was used for JPEG 2000. The patent protects the speed optimizations offered by Accusoft Pegasus.

           Customers can benefit from Accusoft Pegasus’ technology with optimized image compression and decompression for higher speed. The JPEG 2000 technology is delivered within the low-level PICTools Software Development Kit (SDK) as well as within the .NET and ActiveX ImagXpress SDK. Licenses and support agreements are obtained from Accusoft Pegasus.
           It was Accusoft Pegasus Chief Scientist Dr. John Elton that invented the patented speed optimization. Pegasus Imaging (DBA Accusoft Pegasus) was the assignee. Further information can be obtained at the United States Patent and Trademark Office website.
“The ability to rapidly view large images on remote workstations is critical to our medical imaging OEM customers,” says Jack Berlin, president and CEO of Accusoft Pegasus. “We’re proud to announce this patent and clearly place a very high level of importance on being the market leader in JPEG 2000 image compression and decompression speed.”
          Two Accusoft Pegasus SDKs contain the implementation of the JPEG 2000 image decompression. PICTools SDKs feature low-level C libraries which offer optimized image editing, compression, and decompression. These technologies are supported across various 32-bit and 64-bit OS, including LINUX, MS Windows, Solaris SPARC, Solaris x86, and IBM AIX. ImagXpress is a .NET and ActiveX image processing toolkit which is designed for document imaging, photo and color imaging application development, as well as forms processing.
