ImageStation Stereo Softcopy Kit: Ground-breaking Price/Performance for Desktop Photogrammetry; Intergraph Brings Photogrammetric Capability to Standard PCs.

TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 31, 1998--Today, at a photogrammetry user's group meeting held the day before the start of the annual conference of the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Intergraph Corporation unveiled its new ImageStation SSK (Stereo Softcopy Kit), the first product to bring high-performance photogrammetry to desktop PCs. The ImageStation SSK combines a specialized photogrammetry hardware kit, Intergraph's revolutionary ImagePipe foundation software and select suites of application software from Intergraph's popular ImageStation Z photogrammetric production system for use on a standard PC. The resulting product offers users the best in photogrammetric technology at a great cost savings.

ImageStation SSK brings the photogrammetry community the same type of functions found in an ImageStation Z to a desktop PC, turning a standard PC into a digital stereoplotter and supplementing ImageStation Z photogrammetry production. With the ImageStation SSK, users are able to complete the same photogrammetric workflows that are completed by the ImageStation Z, such as photogrammetric project setup, model orientations, stereo display, feature collection and DTM collection and editing. With ImageStation SSK, any standard PC can run all ImageStation Z software modules.

Features available with the SSK include on-the-fly epipolar resampling, smooth stereo roam, display of multiple stereo windows and inline software JPEG compression/decompression. High-performance hardware components included in the kit are the Intense 3D Pro Open GL stereo frame buffer, 3D mouse and CrystalEyes stereo kit. The base system provides data management, stereo display and feature collection software. The Pro version adds orientation and DTM collection modules. Both SSK versions include a comprehensive one-year warranty and service contract. Both versions require Windows NT 4.0 and MicroStation 95.

The ImageStation SSK is available now through Huntsville, Ala.-based Intergraph Corporation.
