code, but I'm not sure either.
The IIPImage server supports various protocols and clients. From a jpeg2000
or pyramidal tiff it can stream tiles conforming to DeepZoom, Internet
Image Protocol (IIP) and Zoomify protocols. This allows it to work with
lots of clients including IIPMooviewer, OpenSeaDragon/SeadragonAjax,
Zoomify, OpenZoom, OpenLayers, PanoJS, JIIPImage (and maybe Silverlight,
I'm not sure). There are demos on the IIPImage site  and some more on
the Old Maps Online site .
Coming at it from the client-side, the IIPMooviewer 2.0 beta can display
tiles from any of the IIPImage Server protocols, but it can also load
pre-generated DeepZoom/OpenSeadragon/DZI or Zoomify tiles without the need
for an image server.
