New Claron Nil App for BlackBerry 10 Showcasing at BlackBerry Experience Events

Claron Technology has been invited to showcase its new BlackBerry® 10 app for the Nil family of medical imaging viewers at BlackBerry Experience Forum events. Taking advantage of the enhanced multimedia and multi-touch functionality of the new BlackBerry 10 platform, the Nil app supports anytime, anywhere web-based review of a full range of medical imaging modalities and reports, such as X-Ray, CT and MRI.

Claron will demonstrate the new app’s advanced features and convenience at the BlackBerry Experience events in Toronto on February 4 and Vancouver on February 13. The Nil app for BlackBerry 10 is compatible with the newly launched BlackBerry® Z10 smartphone, as well as the coming BlackBerry® Q10. The app is available today at no cost on the BlackBerry® World™ storefront.

With single-touch, ultra-fast functionality, the Claron app accesses a Nil viewer running either on Claron’s NilCloud or a medical facility’s dedicated Nil server. It complements Claron’s zero-footprint Nil web viewer available on any desktop, tablet or other smartphones.

Nil provides medical facilities with an ideal complement to their existing PACS solution for secure, streamlined image access beyond the enterprise or existing IT infrastructure. Nil enables image access on-the-fly and takes advantage of highly optimized client-server communication to remain responsive even over limited bandwidth and high latency connections, such as cellular 3G.

Innovative Nil technology provides authorized users sophisticated exam viewing and manipulation capabilities, including 2D, multi-planar reformatting (MPR), 3D and echocardiology with full cine. Its window/level, zoom, pan, rotate and related features enable comprehensive image manipulation in either single or multiple window display.

“As an early and groundbreaking mobile platform with a high level of security, BlackBerry has always had a strong following in business and healthcare enterprises,” says Claudio Gatti, co-founder and co-CEO of Claron. “We believe this will only grow with the new BlackBerry 10 platform and all its security and multimedia features. Claron is pleased to be among the firms invited to participate in the premiere enterprise events for BlackBerry 10 and to showcase our new BlackBerry app to business, IT and healthcare leaders. Use of Nil has been growing rapidly in general and we anticipate similar strong response for our new mobile technology in particular.”

“Healthcare is an important part of the BlackBerry customer base, and we’re pleased that Claron has launched the Nil app for BlackBerry 10,” says Derek Peper, Vice President, Enterprise Partnerships, at BlackBerry. “The new BlackBerry 10 smartphones offer significantly faster performance and higher resolution displays—excellent for viewing medical images. We are extremely pleased to have an innovative partner like Claron as part of the BlackBerry Experience Forum events.”
