Claron Debuts Windows 8 Support For Nil Zero-Footprint Image Viewers At HIMSS 2013

Capitalizing on its commitment to keeping pace with developing technologies, Claron debuts at the 2013 HIMSS conference Windows 8 support for its Nil family of universal web image viewers. This includes the Windows 8 phone, the Surface RT and Professional tablets, and Windows 8 multi-touch desktop applications. Nil browsers include NilShare for referring physicians and NilRead for primary reading.

On the desktop, Nil supports both a touch and mouse interface on a desktop. The new Windows 8 platform will also provide Nil with the flexibility to run on any of today’s multiple-resolution displays, from a smart phone to a massive wall mounted multi-touch unit.

“Claron is committed to keeping pace with advancing technology and providing compatibility with the latest mobile and desktop platforms. Nil was created as a Web-based product specifically to help us adapt to new technologies quickly and easily,” says Claudio Gatti, co-founder and co-CEO of Claron. “With the introduction of Windows 8, we anticipate a major wave of touch-based devices, and going forward, Nil will support them all.”

Claron’s Nil viewer is a web-based software solution that allows clinicians to securely visualize 2D and 3D imaging studies anywhere a Web browser is available with no application download.  It is also compatible with Windows, Apple, Linux, iPad, iPhone, Android and Blackberry including new Blackberry 10.  Nil supports viewing from both local and cloud-based archives, allowing ease of access and high performance. Since its introduction at RSNA 2010, Nil has been integrated with the technologies of a growing number of partners in various imaging markets. The iOS application offers a complementary option to increase the ease of access to Nil on mobile devices.
