OME Image Server

OME image server (omeis)

The OME image server is responsible for storing the binary pixel data for images in an OME installation. Usually these images will be imported from a microscope manufacturer's proprietary format. In this case, the image server will store a copy of the original, proprietary file, in addition to the raw pixel file used directly by OME.

Client programs (and the OME data server) communicate with the image server via an HTTP connection. The image server binary is placed into an Apache script directory so as not to reimplement the HTTP server code. The omeis daemon defines a series of methods which are used to create and access proprietary and OME pixel files.

For more information on omeis's structure and implementation, see the Image server section.
