We are pleased to announce our new High Dynamic Range (HDR) test chart with a density range exceeding 120dB (optical density >6.0). This chart allows you to the measure the dynamic range, tonal response and noise of HDR cameras with a single image instead of multiple, exposure bracketed images. It also contains slanted edges for MTF measurements. (more…)
Imatest version 4.2 is now available as a public beta. Join our Beta Test Group to access 4.2 updates. Highlights include:
- SFRreg Module: Analyze the SFR of slanted edges through the automatic
detection of registration mark patterns (circles with two light and two dark quadrants). Use arrays of registration mark targets to test unique imaging systems, including systems with ultra wide angle fisheye lenses (>180 degrees), multiple camera combinations, video and more.
- Point Spread Function (PSF): Imatest can now estimate an imaging system’s loss of resolution (PSF)
using a pair of collocated, near-sagittal and tangential slanted edges on SFRplus, eSFR ISO and SFRreg targets. Easily analyze and improve sharpness, chromatic aberration, and distortion measurements.
New Photographic eSFR ISO
The ISO 12233:2014 Enhanced eSFR Photographic Target is our newest reflective test chart. Photographic prints have over twice the resolution of inkjet prints, making them more suitable for higher resolution camera systems like DSLRs. The photographic substrate will benefit customers interested in testing high-resolution sensors as well as those performing close-range macro tests. (more…)
New Feature: Imatest IT Parallel
The new Imatest Industrial Testing Parallel uses parallel processing to improve the throughput of Imatest IT and maximize the image processing power of your computing hardware. IT run in parallel enables up to 3x more throughput to support test equipment that requires a high volume of images to be analyzed. IT-P improves the PPH (parts per hour) on assembly lines.
Standard Imatest inkjet-printed test charts produced prior to February 2016 work in Near InfraRed (NIR) wavelengths out to approximately 1 micron.
In February 2016 we upgraded our printers and found (to our disappointment) that our new printers do not have the same reflective densities for NIR wavelengths as for visible wavelengths. We are working out solutions to this issue. Please contact us if your needs include NIR. (more…)

CMOS sensor R&D is enabled by Imatest
There are no shortcuts in the process of CMOS image sensor configuration. There is only a myriad set of tasks: setting sensor registers; capturing images; conducting tests; and analyzing results – a cycle that is repeated again and again to achieve an ideal configuration. From medical devices to mobile-phone cameras to military targeting systems, CMOS image sensors support a diverse range of imaging applications. (more…)
