What is a ZVI file?
A ZVI file is an image saved in the Zeiss Vision Image (ZVI) format. It contains a high-resolution image captured by a Zeiss microscope that supports up to 3x16-bit color and 16-bit monochrome. ZVI files also include metadata, such as camera and microscope settings.
ZVI files are created by AxioVision, a program used to capture images from a Zeiss microscope. The software not only allows you to capture images but also to analyze the properties of materials' structures. You can also export ZVI images to .JPG, .TIF, .TGA, .PNG, .AVI, .MOV, .CMP, .J2K, and .BMP files. AxioVision is mainly used in the scientific field by metallurgists.
