Live Import (public beta)


Capture and see life in motion

Live feedback during image acquisition can make a big difference in your imaging experiments. Staying informed lets you adjust the optics and acquisition parameters on-the-fly for optimal results. Aivia's Live Import is a live 3D display that lets you view the full 3D volume in real-time from your microscope as it is being acquired.


How it works: Live Import in Aivia works with any microscope with properly-formatted image files. Before you begin image acquisition, start Live Import and point Aivia to the folder that the acquired images are stored in. Aivia periodically polls the folder and begins converting the acquired image to Aivia's multi-block format for 3D display in mere seconds. The conversion happens in the background so you can interact with the displayed volume - and any previous time point - without lag. When acquisition is complete, save the file in Aivia TIFF to show in Aivia, no additional conversions needed.


  • View images in 3D as they are being acquired
  • Convert images to Aivia's multi-resolution format automatically
  • Fuse and display multi-view lightsheet volumes
  • Save imported results to Aivia TIFF for easy future access

Got a multi-view lightsheet microscope setup? Live import has got you covered. You can fuse two views of a single channel image with Live Import and display the fused result in 3D. The fused image is also converted into Aivia' s multi-resolution format and saved to the final file - a major time-saver!


Multi-Resolution Rendering

Fast Surface Rendering


Visualize terabyte datasets

Data captured on light sheet microscopes can often be hundreds of gigabytes and even up to multiple-terabytes for a 3D time-lapse. The size of these datasets can exceed even the most powerful GPUs and computers - making visualization of the whole volume very difficult.

Aivia's rendering pipeline allows you to interactively review multi-GB/TB volumes on standard computing hardware. We have developed an innovative multi-resolution, multi-block architecture with efficient memory management which work in synchrony to enable you to explore your data in real-time. Visualize and play with your data without interruptions as Aivia swaps in progressively higher resolution volume into your field of view.

  • Load, display and interact with multi-TB 3D/4D data in seconds
  • Innovative multi-resolution, multi-block volume rendering 
  • Six high-performance 3D rendering options
  • Create stunning visuals (images and movies) from your images

No more waiting - see your results now

Beyond volume rendering, Aivia allows its users to explore many hundreds of thousands of objects of interest in real time. We have accomplished this by: a) drastically optimizing the data flow from the hard disk to the GPU, b) maximizing the reuse of points needed to generate a surface and c) intelligent data caching. Together, these items allow Aivia users to render and interact with hundreds of thousands of objects per time point. With Aivia you will save up 98% of the time previously needed to render 3D surface objects!


"What if I don't have a multi GB file?" You will still benefit. For you Aivia will do nearly every operation in an instant.

  • ​Real time interaction with hundreds of thousands of objects per time point
  • Navigate instantaneously to any time point - intelligent caching
  • Optimized data flow (disk to GPU) and object generation
  • Real time multi-object selection and update of display properties
Option 1: Standard surface rendering
Aivia fast surface rendering
Performance comparison

Option 1​ - standard surface rendering

Option 2 - optimized / accelerated surface rendering. Only requires 68% of the time (vs Option 1) required to display surfaces

Aivia - highly optimized data flow, reuse of data points and intelligent caching. It renders surfaces in 2% of the time versus Option 1.
