11 October 2022, Boulder, CO. Imatest releases version 22.2 with new updates and features including Stray Light (Flare) Analysis, Auto Exposure and Auto White Balance measurements in Color/Tone, Compare two images for 3D (stereo imaging) compatibility in Focus Field, and Enhanced image preview.
September 13th, 2022, Brussels, Belgium, and Boulder, CO. Imatest announced at AutoSens Brussels the release of its new stray light (flare) testing solution, available with Imatest version 22.2.
Stray light, also known as flare, is any light that reaches the detector (i.e., the image sensor) other than through the designed optical path. Stray light can be thought of as systematic, scene-dependent optical noise. Depending on the mechanism causing the stray light, it can produce phantom objects within the scene (i.e., ghosts/ghosting), reduce contrast over portions of the image (e.g., veiling glare), and effectively reduce system dynamic range. These factors can adversely affect the application performance of the camera in a wide variety of applications including automotive, security, machine vision, and consumer electronics, and is addressed in the upcoming IEEE P2020 standard. The Imatest stray light testing setup allows users to measure stray light for imaging systems.

We are happy to announce the release of the new Target Generator Library today. The Imatest Target Generator is free software that will facilitate rapid, iterative lens and camera design by enabling simulations that can help a designer make better informed decisions about what components are appropriate in advance of costly prototyping phases.
The new Imatest Target Generator provides virtual chart solutions. Quantitative and qualitative results from applying ray tracing, noise effects, and image signal processing to virtual charts aid engineers in communicating the impact of various lens and camera design parameters. Image quality deficiencies can be observed and mitigated using a virtual chart during the simulation phase. Virtual charts can aid engineers in comparing and resolving discrepancies between designs and builds. (more…)
Introducing the CM10120 Collimator – a target projection collimator system that allows users to simulate long-range testing in confined spaces. This compact solution can be used for regional sharpness testing, making it useful for tasks such as setting focus or checking pass/fail criteria. The CM10120 includes adjustable distance simulation and is suitable for R&D, production, and end of line testing. To learn more about the CM10120, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Imatest, LLC, a leader in image quality evaluation tools, today announced the launch of their new Camera Geometric Calibration Validation service to provide objective metrics for calibration quality. The Service uses upcoming IEEE P2020 geometric calibration standard as a reference. (more…)
Imatest Version 2021.1 adds several new features to Imatest Master and Imatest IT, including edge tracking during live focusing, alignment tools in device manager, new subjective exposure quality loss calculation, OpenEXR support, live exposure and white balance measurements and several customer-requested features.
Imatest, a global image quality testing solution provider, is pleased to announce Imatest 2020.1 that adds new features on top of the major enhancements made in version 5.2. This new release further enhances the software with stability updates and regular improvements. See the Imatest Change Log for details.
The release of Imatest 5.0 introduced a number of powerful new features, including the Arbitrary Charts module which enables Imatest analysis of test chart designs which would be otherwise unsupported by the software. This new module allows user-defined chart layouts for any situation which requires one.
The primary concept of Arbitrary Charts is that the user supplies a chart-definition text file which declares the location and properties of features on a test chart. The features can be placed in essentially any configuration and Imatest will still be able to automatically analyze the chart. (more…)
