 +
 +==== Unique Nowcasting Products ====
 +
 +CineSat provides you with weather information that cannot be found elsewhere:
 +
 +<WRAP highlights>​
 +  * Real-time prediction of cloud movement,
 +  * Accurately predicted cloud images
 +  * Analysis of current cloud development
 +  * Fully automatic convective cell analysis
 +  * Full meteorological image processing
 +  * Rich meteorological and cartographic image processing (more ...)
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +     
 +And you can obtain all this information in real-time and
 +over the full area covered by your satellite images.
 +
 +
 +==== Real-Time Performance ====
 +     
 +Time is a crucial factor in operational nowcasting - and real-time methods are mandatory.  ​
 +CineSat'​s core algorithms are optimized for super-fast performance while still delivering highly accurate results, e.g.
 +
 +  * CineSat'​s projection library remaps images about 12 times faster than standard libraries like PROJ, and 
 +  * CineSat'​s motion analyser computes the movement of clouds more than 20 times faster than standard image processing techniques used in satellite ground segments. ​
 +
 +This means, you can 
 +<WRAP highlights>​
 +  * Produce more weather products in less time
 +  * Serve more customers with tailored, real-time weather products
 +  * Better utilize your existing data
 +  * Significantly save hardware expenses
 +  * Make intensive algorithms useful for interactive use
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +This performance is achieved by new algorithms and mathematically optimized procedures.
 +
 +In typical configurations,​ CineSat computes e.g. the
 +
 +  * Current and predicted cloud movement
 +  * Predicted satellite images for the next 3 hours in 15 minute steps
 +  * Predicted trajectories for hundreds of cloud related observations
 +  * Current cloud development maps
 +  * Full convective cell analysis, and
 +  * Smoothly interpolated animation movies in 3 minute steps
 +     
 +. . . within minutes after image reception.
 +
 +This makes CineSat a valuable tool for processing the 15-minute full Earth disks from all geostationary satellites as well as the 1-5 minute rapid scans as provided by modern satellites.
 +
 +
 +==== Quality Control and Enhancement ===
 +     
 +CineSat does not only run an automatic meteorological quality control of its kernel products, but goes an innovative step further:
 +
 +
 +<WRAP highlightbox 500px>
 +CineSat uses the result of quality control for iterative improvement of product quality.
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +
 +Both procedures - quality control and quality enhancement - operate automatically,​ and can be controlled and tailored by user parameters.  ​
