What is the difference between IVIndex and VIX?

They say about the difference at http://www.ivolatility.com/news.j?nid=114&x=14&y=7 , guess by meaning they are the same but IVX is an estimate for individual name while VIX is only for S&P 500 index

there seems to be a lot of noise in the data, spikes that i know are not actually there, maybe because the calculator is just using the midpoint of the bid/offers on the atm strikes? it would probably be worthwhile to implement some smoothing algorithms to filter out the bad prints - i have several years of professional options trading and software development experience and would be happy to help out if appropriate
