The Neotek stereo file format has been specifically designed from the ground up
to support high quality electronic stereoscopy. The 2.0 .neo file supports the
- Always adjustable horizontal and vertical parallax. You can
re-adjust the parallax of any .neo file to suit your present needs (optimal
registration can be stored in the file).
- Always adjustable lossless
cropping. If you change the registration or aspect ratio, you will want to
change the cropping. The .neo file stores the complete original image
pair so that you can always re-crop for your present requirements. Of course optimal
cropping can be stored.
- Encrypted Author and Copyright stamps. The
original creator can permanently stamp accreditation and copyright info. Other
users can always use the about "always adjustable"option. But, the author
can be sure they will always be acknowledged. There's even a notation field where
you can permanently record information of your choice.
- Original file
information storage. Even though the .neo file gives you a single convenient file,
it is often useful to know information about the original pairs. The .NEO file
remembers their names, resolutions, original registration, and more.
- Highly compressible file structure. .NEO files have the bit planes
laid out for maximum compressibility. You can choose any lossless compression
technique to achieve good storage or transfer compression. The Web standard .zip
file format generally achieves about 5 to 1 lossless compression on a 1024x768 pixel,
full 24-bit color image.
- Expandability. .NEO standard has been designed
to expand to handle tomorrow's extremely high-resolution images, HDTV aspect ratios,
and source for motion-stereo.
.NEO files are most easily created from a wide
variety of sources using the NEOn stereo image
