15 times more efficient then JPEG compression
A new image format technology named MatrixView Universal (.MVU) is starting to see the light in the world of the internet. The new format claims to be 15 times more efficient then JPEG compression and does that without any image loss. Echoview, from Matrixview is the first product that uses this technology. It is a lossless and highly optimised continuous archival and retrieval system for Echocardiogram and Ultrasound images. I'm pretty sure additional uses of this technology will be appearing in the near future.
Average Compression Ratio:
EchoView: 32.9 times
JPG: 7.3 times
JP2: 8.5 times
