LizardTech Launches GeoExpress 9 at 2013 Esri International User Conference

GeoExpress enables geospatial professionals to compress and manipulate satellite and aerial imagery and the latest version features a significant performance improvement from previous versions. This latest version is four times faster than before with support for spanning multiple jobs across multiple cores. This increase in speed enables users to complete projects faster than ever before within the application.

This release also introduces Intelligent Encoding, with the software automatically reconfiguring itself for optimal performance. GeoExpress 9 automatically chooses to Encode, Optimize or Update based on the encoding operations that the user chooses, which results in high performance with minimal training.

In addition, Jon Skiffington, LizardTech’s director of product management, will introduce GeoExpress 9 to the Esri attendees by giving a Demo Theater presentation titled “LizardTech – What’s New with MrSID® and GeoExpress” on Wednesday, July 10, from 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. at the Imagery Island Exhibit in Exhibit Hall C.

“This is going to be an exciting week for LizardTech,” said Skiffington. “We’re launching the latest version of our flagship product, GeoExpress with its new features, faster performance and updated user interface. We look forward to showing our customers the new features and receiving feedback from our users and partners.” 

LizardTech will also host product demonstrations in their booth to showcase the new features of GeoExpress 9. These presentations will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday at 10:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., with a final presentation held on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. Product demonstrations of Express Server® software for high-performance delivery and publication and LiDAR Compressor™ software, which turns giant point cloud datasets into efficient MrSID files will also be available.
