The Standard Edition of piXserve is well suited for
organizations/workgroups that have larger repositories of images in
their intranet, as well as some video files.
piXserve Standard Edition includes all the
features found in the Web Edition, and adds several that are
important in environments with a broader set of digital media search
The Standard Edition of piXserve adds the ability to recognize and
index text that may appear anywhere in the field of view of
the image. Users can type a text string and retrieve images/video
sequences where such text appears in the image (for example, text on
the screen of a news broadcast, or text on a street sign). piXserve
can see and recognize text in complex color images and videos with
an unmatched level of accuracy in the industry.
The Standard Edition is capable of indexing text in languages that
use Western Alphabet characters. It is also well suited in
applications that involve alpha-numeric strings (such as license
plates, part numbers, etc.).
piXserve Standard Edition includes connectors that allow the
software to store piXserve XML metadata in external RDBMS products
such as PostgreSQL (bundled with piXserve), Oracle or Microsoft SQL.
In addition to the image formats handled by the Web Edition of
piXserve, the Standard Edition adds the ability to index popular
video file formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H-263, H-264, WMV, ASF,
- Automatic Indexing
Point piXserve to a repository of images and video and
automatically index their contents. No manual intervention or
data entry required.
- Powerful Search
Through a web browser interface, users login to piXserve,
connect to available databases and formulate search queries to
retrieve images and specific segments of video files:
- Use an arbitrary image from user’s dektop to search for
images/video segments that contain the same or similar items
- Use the mouse to point to an
area of the query image to
indicate which specific item(s)
should be searched for.
- Browse the contents of existing databases, and use any
of those images to formulate a visual search query.
- Type a text string to search pictures/videos where that
string appears in the field of view
- Perform not only simple but also complex searches
(Example: type a text string to retrieve broadcast news
segments where that word is visible on the screen, and then
use a picture to search those results and retrieve segments
where both the text string and the desired visual object(s)
are in the same frame.
- Search by file name (any text substring that appears in
the full path of the image/video file).
- Search by keyword or other external metadata, if
- Suggest keywords to describe the contents of a picture
- Comprehensive Search Environment
Users can prune and save search results for future
reference. Search results can be annotated and, as they are
stored in XML format, can be easily imported in typical office
