We use Scripto with Omeka to have volunteers transcribe manuscripts which are high resolution images. It has the option of using OpenLayers (which is the setting we use) or Zoom.it for image display.
I have no idea the level of complexity it takes to implement either of these since these options came bundled in Scripto but I approve of the results.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] very large image display?
Does anyone have a good solution to recommend for display of very large images on the web? I'm thinking of something that supports pan and scan, as well as loading only certain tiles for the current view to avoid loading an entire giant image.
A URL to more info to learn about things would be another way of answering this question, especially if it involves special server-side software. I'm not sure where to begin. Googling around I can't find any clearly good solutions.
Has anyone done this before and been happy with a solution?
Thanks for any info!
