With the Open Enterprise Edition, Web site developers can build linkable "hotspots" into images, which can query a database and dynamically generate a new HTML page with related information and high-resolution images. Online car shoppers, for instance, can click to zoom in to a close-up, high-resolution image of a new model's stereo system. By clicking on the hotspot link, they might see a list of specs, or even hear an audio track explaining the stereo's features.
Live Picture Image Servers are based on the industry-standard Flashpix image file format and Internet Imaging Protocol (IIP). Developed by Live Picture in collaboration with Hewlett-Packard, Kodak and Microsoft, Flashpix and IIP enable the Live Picture Image Server to transmit only the image details requested, rather than sending the entire high-resolution image. As a result, users can click to zoom in on a photo, and in seconds, examine the specified area of the photo.
