xRez Studio has had a longstanding working relationship with both Microsoft Live Labs and Microsoft Research, having supplied them with content and feedback for their innovative and cutting-edge gigapixel viewing technologies such as HD View, Seadragon, and Silverlight Deep Zoom.
One of the advantages of gigapixel images is the versatility they can provide for a wide range of applications. In 2008, xRez Studio was contracted to provide licensing of several panoramic images for an animated display system for the lobby of the HP Executive Briefing Center in Cupertino, CA.
Gigapixel images can provide stunningly high resolution large format prints, and are a perfect solution for corporate or hospitality-based corporate art installations. In 2008, xRez Studio was contracted to provide a large 12′ long gigapixel print for the main boardroom of the new headquarters of Intech Investment Management LLC in West Palm Beach, Florida.
