What is an SVS file?

An SVS file is a digital slide image file created by an Aperio ScanScope slide scanner. It contains a series of TIFF images, and its ImageDescription tag starts with Aperio. SVS files are used for archiving and analyzing Aperio microscope images.

More Information

Scientific microscopes scan and save slide specimen images in a variety of image formats. Aperio ScanScope microscopes save images in the SVS file format, which contains a number of different specimen images saved at different resolutions.

The first image saved in an SVS file is always the baseline specimen image, saved at full resolution. The full resolution image is always tiled, with a typical tile size of 240 x 240 pixels. The second image is always a thumbnail, which is usually 1024 x 768 pixels. Additional "pyramid" images (saved at a variety of resolutions) may follow the full resolution and thumbnail images.

SVS files sometimes also contain a slide label image, identifying the slide a file was created from. This image ensures that scientists and medical workers can link the images an SVS file contains with the physical slide they were created from.

How do I open an SVS file?

In Windows, you can open an SVS file in Aperio Technologies ImageScope, a free slide image viewing software. In macOS and Linux operating systems, you can open SVS files with OpenSlide, an open-source slide image viewing library.

Need for Speed: World Vinyl Setup

What is an SVS file?

An SVS file is a vinyl setup that can be applied to a car in Need for Speed: World, a free-to-play massively multiplayer online (MMO) racing game. It contains information used to apply a specific set and arrangement of vinyls to a car. SVS files are applied to cars using the mod-created VinylManager application.

More Information

In 2010, Electronic Arts released Need for Speed: World, the 15th installment in the Need for Speed video game franchise. In the game, players could race high-performance cars against AI opponents and other players from around the world. Players could also unlock additional cars and customization options while leveling up their in-game character.

Some of the game's customization options took the form of vinyls. Vinyls were decals players used to decorate their cars. For example, a player could apply a number of vinyls to make their car look like a souped-up taxi cab or a police car. Players adept at modding Need for Speed: World created the VinylManger application to allow them to save their cars' vinyl setups as SVS files and easily apply those setups to other cars, as well as share them with other players.

Electronic Arts discontinued Need for Speed: World and shut down the game's servers in 2015. However, the game's dedicated player base has created their own version of the game, called Need for Speed: World Offline, which still allows players to use VinylManger and SVS files to apply vinyl setups to their cars.

How do I open an SVS file?

You can use VinylManager to apply the vinyl setup contained within an SVS file to a car in Need for Speed: World. To do so, you must download VinylManager and then:

  1. Start Need for Speed: World and, in your Safehouse, select the car you want to customize.
  2. Select Customization → Vinyl Shop.
  3. Start VinylManager (by running it as an administrator) and select the SVS file you want to apply to a car. Note how many vinyls are contained within the SVS file.
  4. In Need for Speed: World, apply as many vinyls as are contained within your SVS file to your car. You can apply any vinyls to your car in this step; you will remove these vinyls later.
  5. In VinylManager, click Load.
  6. In Need for Speed: World, select Finished Customizing. The vinyl setup contained within your SVS file will be applied to your car.
  7. Remove the vinyls you applied in step 4.
