Previously, lights in a testing environment had to be controlled manually or via external software in what was often a time consuming and tedious process. With the introduction of Lighting Control in Imatest Master 2020.1, we give users the opportunity to fine tune and control their laboratory setup directly from the Imatest software using tools designed specifically with image quality testing in mind. Now in Imatest Master 2020.2, we have added new support for 16-Bit DMX control, compatible with our KinoFlo LED Lighting System. This new feature will allow finer control over lighting conditions to facilitate a greater range of testing opportunities.
