Sinusoidal Siemens Star Target

The Sinusoidal Siemens Star test chart allows you to measure MTF and limiting resolution with a chart that provides angular response and may be less affected by signal processing (especially sharpening) than slanted-edges. Siemens star MTF20 (the spatial frequency where MTF is 20% of its low frequency value) is a good estimate of limiting resolution. (more…)

SFRreg Target

The SFRreg test target consists of a slanted-edge quadrant pattern enclosed within a circle. It is used for measuring MTF and lateral chromatic aberration. A test image typically contains several targets that are automatically detected and analyzed by Imatest 4.2. (more…)

Announcing Imatest IT Parallel Processing

New Feature: Imatest IT Parallel

Increasing testing throughput

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.

Infrared Targets, Correction for Slanted-Edge MTF Measurements

Infrared Targets 

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…)

Selecting a Chart: SFRplus and eSFR ISO

SFRplus and eSFR ISO share many similar features and can be used to perform many similar image quality analyses. However, some of their features differ, and understanding which features differ will help you select the most appropriate test chart to analyze your imaging systems. This video outlines key differences between SFRplus and eSFR ISO.
