KARMENstudio is Used by:


How do you analyze images in your research?

Labor-intensive? It’s painful?
Time-consuming? Inefficient?

  • we set custom automatic protocols for your set of data;
  • it’s fast, only sec/image
  • train the software with your experienced observer(s)
  • significantly increase your data harvest and analytics

Planning new project? With loads of images?

How/who will analyze it? Do not reduce your ambitions!
  • using the power of deep learning
  • set you a pipeline for FULL image analysis

Large database with images, -grab more from it?

It will take TOO LONG to go through the data again?
How/who will analyze it?
  • built custom tools for your automatic image analysis
  • follow up with your research needs,
  • significantly increase your data harvest and analytics


KARMENstudio is built for scientific & industrial DATA

The range and volume of data that can be imported and exported are significant.

We fully support the following file types:

  • Full-range images, full-range video formats;
  • 360° images from various camera types 
  • Document file formats including .doc, .pdf, .xls, .csv, etc.
  • 3D models (like .OBJ or .DAE, etc)
  • Hyperspectral layers/markers of the same fields (up to 100 layers)

We combine AI with other techniques to solve a problem

  • AQUACULTURE assets are complex, and the real world is noisy!
  • We spend time understanding the roots of the problem!

We combine multiple approaches and techniques to solve complex problems.

We create:

  • Physical models
  • Sets of image processing approaches
  • Multiple approaches and techniques such as:
    • Computer vision
    • Geo-Positioning
    • Our own Artificial Intelligence solutions

Private Label

  • Tailor-made and fully automatic.
  • We are all about customization!
  • Dedicated AWS server for each customer

Our Services:

  1. Detection & Categorization
    We pre-process, segment, classify and phenotype complex visual structures using physical models, machine learning, mapping, and geo-positioning.
  2. Measurements & Metrics
    We provide each user with a wide range of tailor-made metrics such as area, distance, landmark positioning, density, uniformity, ratio, branching levels, time-lapse, and many more
  3. Forecasting & Modeling
    We set a unique model to forecast events of interest and to estimate how likely they would happen on a timescale.

All services are:
• Tailor-made for each user
• Fully automatic
• Effective for real environmental conditions
• Used for any ROV/cameras

Customized automated reporting
• Simple and functional presentations
• Adapted for each user

Training and testing phases

Training stage:

  • Personalized access to the KARMENstudio platform.
  • for the training of software using the power of machine learning!
  • keeps you in touch with data analysis - by 
    training the software by your experienced observer(s)
  • interactivity implemented which allows you fast performance
  • brings the efficiency of automatic image analysis even higher!
  • significantly increases your data harvest and analytics

Testing stage:

providing additional information regarding the expectations, probability, and efficiency of all the steps of analysis.

KARMENstudio workflow

The main workflow consists of base preprocessing, segmentation and classification with integrated functional modules and features, mapping and statistics.

  • The mapping module is merging individual images into one complete virtual image/folder.
  • Statistics module contains basic data analysis of main image features. Any extended data analysis is provided by additional suitable plugins.
  • Plugins supported: Image-based: include preprocessing step; Data-based: include data analysis; Based on image and data: include multiple image processing; Based on extended data: include structural analysis; Upgraded Functional Modules; Upgraded Features

Image analysis workflow includes following steps:

  • preprocessing,
  • segmentation,
  • classification,
  • multiple image processing,
  • structural analysis and
  • data analysis
  • Segmentation and classification contain intermediate computational scripts, each programmed as an independent functional module.

Deep Learning allows fast and efficient image analysis containing complex visual structures. In addition, thanks to Deep Learning, we can also quickly develop novel analysis scripts for new applications through automated proposing patterns of new scripts, based on our extensive experiential database, and adjusting the parameters of the new script modules.

Full analysis of a typical 8-megapixel image with resolution 3266×2450 pixels rarely takes more than 2 seconds on an average computer today.
Developing a novel script module for new applications takes only a few weeks.

Our image analysis is oriented to work with many related images, such as individual images forming a large visual scene, or a sequence of images captured in a short time, or slow time lapse of images, or images taken as cross-sections of 3D digitized objects.

This multiple-image orientation is ensured for high-speed image analysis and high data optimization, which enables simultaneous access and handling of even extremely large amounts of data.

KARMENstudio is highly modular and easily upgradable for different applications.
Upgrade models include plugins with new segmentation and classification functionalities, as well as plugin extensions for preprocessing, multiple image processing, structural analysis and data analysis.

Intuitive interface allows easy interactivity during all image analysis steps.
In the case of segmentation and classification it is possible to return to any previous intermediate step from the script, and to make adjustments to the parameters of the modules.

While the initial scope of KARMENstudio was developed for life-science microscopy, in particular in the field of cellular neuroscience, KARMENstudio has a much wider scope today, thanks to its distinct modularity and upgradability.

Examples of image processing modules used in KARMENstudio are: Structural analysis of bones and keypoint detection, Object tracing due to moving affinities, Point Spread Function detection, Validation by segment registration with other image analysis tools.
