How Dotphoton works
We calibrate your device, and build a physical/information-theoretical model of it. Each source of noise is dealt with in the most appropriate manner to ensure the best possible quality and metrological accuracy. This allows our compressor to optimally allocate space in the compressed file to signal, and not noise.

Validated by specialists
Most systems have to make a tradeoff of image quality vs file size. Until now, this has often meant throwing away the high-quality file and keeping the "jpeg". However, most compression technologies up to now have been tuned to the human eye, and can, in certain conditions, negatively impact quantitative analysis techniques, and make machine learning less reliable and challenging to train.

Dotphoton compression has been build from the start to be applied wherever raw data works, and specifically tested in a variety of quantitative measurements and machine learning applications, internally, by customers and through academic partnerships.
