October 15, 2022


The Checkerboard Test Charts are available Pre-Mounted for use with Imatest LED Light Sources. This chart is designed to work with the Checkerboard module. This module enhances testing of varying distances by supplying more testable regions to provide automated measurements of sharpness, lateral chromatic aberration, and distortion from images.

Learn more about the Checkerboard Module.  Please note that this module runs slower than eSFR ISO and SFRplus modules and is less tolerant to extreme amounts of defocus or blooming degradations.

Documentation and software support

The key documentation for getting started is Using Checkerboard Part 1, found in the Checkerboard section of the Documentation page. Checkerboard provides the most accurate distortion measurements.
