The Open Microscope Environment Remote Objects (OMERO) is a modern server and client software for visualising, managing, and annotating microscope images and metadata, and for working with experimental protocols.

The OMERO server is the component that manages the actual storage of images as well as the database containing the metadata describing the images.

The objective of this platform is to provide a central, shared storage environment for microscopy labs, enabling its users to store and share data from a large variety of different microscopes, not dedicated to specific vendor formats. 

In microscopy environments, data is generated by experiments. Hence new data, requiring new storage space, is generated each day as part of the primary business process of the lab environment.

After generation, the data is processed for analysis and at this stage, and in fact when the experiment is finished, most of the data will no longer be used.

At this point the data should be either deleted from the storage or it should be archived for future reference.

DAX | SOLUTIONS - DAX Medical Video Archive

The Medical Video Archive Solution provides an easy and cost effective solution for archiving and retrieving all patient imaging data captured in the OR for cases where PACS storage is not possible or an alternative is desired. It enables sharing of all data captured by the Smith and Nephews’ 660 HD Image Management System. This enables fast and easy access to the patients data throughout the hospital network.



There are also many cases where different types of local archival storage systems are required that can off-load diagnostic equipment while building departmental archives. Today’s medical staff expects that the digitization of the hospitals infrastructure would lead to simplification and improved efficiency. In addition to archival requirements, many departments have the need to export imaging data to portable media.


DAX | SOLUTIONS - DAX Prepress Archive

An important and practical aspect arising in many prepress organizations is related to the physical limitations of their existing digital storage environment. Each order implies the creation of new data, whereas finished orders represent fixed, non changing data sets filling up the working server. Data is dynamic and evolves from an initial ‘artwork’ stage to a final ‘printing’ stage.


DAX | SOLUTIONS - DAX Broadcast Archive

These “stitch in time” solutions unfortunately do not provide for long term archiving on permanent media that can be scaled infinitely with the need to add metadata while searching the actual footage efficiently. This powerful solution transforms a static storage environment into an environment where users can efficiently share and manage their video files/clips, providing instant on-line previews of every video clip.
