Working with HDF5 ImagesΒΆ

An HDF5 file is a (smart) data container not just for numerical data. It is well equipped to store other multi-media content, including images, sounds, and video. Different communities have created several standards describing domain-specific conventions for storing their content in HDF5 files. The HDF5 Image and Palette Specification describes how to store a large class of raster images in HDF5. PyHexad supports the import and display of HDF5 images into a worksheet via the h5readImage function.
