Flash Image Streaming – Zoom and Pan

Posted on March 14, 2007. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

Many flash developers are unknown to this technology – image streaming in flash. Take a look at this page:
Château de Chenonceau -The pantry

Using the zoom tool, I could see all that is inside the far room that you can see in this picture. I also tried to find out the time in the clock placed in the cupboard at the right side, seems to be around 1. It is not so clear, but it is because of the type of clock.

This tool is way too cool.

Take a look at another such system:
Discovery Channel :: Alien Planet
A tool to achieve this is Zoomifyer – which you can find it at http://www.zoomify.com

There are three Zoomifyer products: Zoomifyer EZ, Zoomifyer for Flash, and Zoomifyer Enterprise.

As Zoomifyer EZ is free product, I was quick to download and test it. It even was way too simpler and quick to make zoomable flash page. The software actually cuts a large image to multiple small images, a swf movie is also created and the images are internally joined together when swf movie is viewed.

This would not be much concern for general flash developers like me (although I am not into flash for quite some time now); But I think it is not the exact image streaming. The complete product Zoomifyer Enterprise (US$795) seems to provide exact image streaming solution as it mentions to have Single-file (PFF) storage and Flash Communication Server integration.
