The High Precision SFRplus Target for GL-30E Lightbox is our most detailed resolution target. You can test high-resolution devices in compact environments using one-third the space required for extra-large Inkjet charts.
New Photographic eSFR ISO & June Trainings
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…)
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
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.

Imatest 4.0 Release
Imatest for Mac OS X 3.10-Beta Now Available
We are happy to announce that Imatest Master 3.10-Beta is now available for Mac OS X
We are confident in the stability of the image quality testing algorithms in this version, but have kept the Beta tag on this release since there may be some minor issues that remain to be resolved before we remove the Beta tag. (more…)
Imatest 3.10 Released
The release of version 3.10 of Imatest brings a host of improvements to make image quality testing faster and more relevant to advances in cameras. Look for performance, stability, interface and measurement improvements across the board as well as some excellent new modules and features. (more…)
Imatest 3.9 Released
Imatest 3.9 was released on December 14th 2012. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for purchase or renewal information.
Here is a complete list of changes:
Imatest main window: Explore image file folder and Explore recent save folder have been added to the File dropdown. INI File Settings have been given their own dropdown to minimize clutter. Explore INI file folder has been added. The INI file Editor (useful for fixing errors and for setting up INI files for the Functional Interface and IT) has been greatly enhanced. (more…)
Imatest 3.8 Released
Imatest 3.8 was released on May 14th 2011. Please contact email@example.com for purchase or renewal information.
Here is a complete list of changes:
I3A CPIQ (Camera Phone Image Quality) enhancements: The Dot Pattern module has been added for analyzing distortion and lateral chromatic aberration (LCA). The Dot pattern and ISO-15739 charts have been added to Test Charts. The CPIQ Acutance measurement (similar to SQF) has been added to SFR and SFRplus. The CPIQ color uniformity metric (ΔCmax) has been added to Light Falloff and Uniformity Interactive.
Noise analysis has been added to Multicharts. Support for extremely distorted SFRplus charts has been improved.
Changes released in other versions are available on our Changelog
Infrared SFRplus test charts available now
Toshiba Collaborates with Imatest on IS Edition
Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC), a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, and Imatest LLC, maker of the world’s most popular image quality testing software, have teamed up to enhance Imatest’s Image Sensor (IS) Edition, a highly anticipated and powerful tool to help engineers responsible for configuring Toshiba image sensors.
Blemish Detection Now Available
Version 3.6 of Imatest’s Master Edition delivers sophisticated blemish detection capabilities based on the human visual system’s ability to detect blemishes. Soon this feature will also be added to the Industrial Testing Edition to enable blemish detection in high-volume camera-system production. Details here
Release 3.5 includes ISO sensitivity analysis
ISO sensitivity (also called ISO speed), is included in Release 3.5 of both Imatest Master and Industrial Testing (IT) packages. ISO sensitivity is a measure of how strongly an image sensor and/or camera responds to light. Both Saturation-based and Standard Output Sensitivity, as described in ISO 12232, are calculated, but the measurement procedure has been considerably streamlined as compared to the ISO specification. (more…)
Imatest super-charges SFR and SFR-plus
Version 3.4.1 of Imatest Master, IT, and IS is now available and includes optimizations to SFR and SFRPlus that drastically reduce processing time for computing MTF (sharpness). Depending on options and settings, results are delivered in half the time or better. Download the latest version today: www.imatest.com/download
Imatest 3.4 with 3D plots released
- 3D plots with automatic or manual scaling are available in SFRplus and Light Falloff. These plots can be rotated for improved visualization and offer numerous display options. 3D Fig files should be used sparingly: they’re much larger than PNG image files.
- A second secondary readout is available in SFR and SFRplus.
Master 3.2 with automatic test execution Released
Release 3.2 of Imatsest Master includes SFRplus, a new capability that automatically identifies regions of interest (ROI) and helps you rapidly complete a wide range of image quality tests, including sharpness, lateral chromatic aberration, lens distortion, gamma (contrast), and tonal response. (more…)
Imatest 3.1 released
Multiple files can be read and averaged (and saved) to facilitate measurements of fixed-pattern noise (in Stepchart, Colorcheck, and Light Falloff) and image stabilization (SFR). Highly distorted regions of interest (ROIs) can be analyzed with Colorcheck and Stepchart. New ΔE measurements and hot/dead pixel options have been added to Light Falloff.
Imatest Master and Studio have been introduced, replacing Pro and Light. Support for Bayer RAW images has been strengthened.
