What do you do for work?


Tina

I am an Imaging engineer at E-con Systems. At E-con Systems we design and develop embedded cameras for several markets like industrial, retail, and medical domains. My role is to tune the Image Quality parameters and validate it against the standards available for specific target applications.

How long have you been using Imatest?


Tina

Our association with Imatest dates way back to 2008 where we had purchased our first Imatest Master license. We started using it for some of our customer projects back then. We then took it mainstream to validate all our camera products and it would be fitting to say that we have seen Imatest through its full evolution to what it is today.

What feature in the software do you find yourself using the most, or is your favorite?


Tina

We use Color accuracy, eSFR ISO, Uniformity and Stepchart modules quite frequently since they form the basis of our products’ IQ reports. One favorite feature that stands out is the multi-image mode which helps us to average the performance across multiple hardware’s of the same Image sensor.

Are you able to give a brief description of what you use it for?


Tina

Imatest has become an integral part of our product development process. As I mentioned, our products carter a wide variety of applications which require flexibility in terms of the parameters we tune and validate the IQ for. The latest eSFR ISO charts and the modular test stand has helped reduce the hassle of maintaining multiple charts and equipment. With shorter turnaround times for this IQ validation, at each step in our design process we can see the impact in IQ performance. The reports we generate are widely accepted across all the markets and act as true value add for our products.

Do you have any tips for new Imatest users?

Tina

The interactive models in Imatest i.e., color/tone interactive and Rescharts are great for beginners. These help the user build a better understanding of different possible outcomes and visualize the results better.

 

Thank you to Tina for participating!
