Imaging Gauge™ Software
The Imaging Gauge™ program receives two (2) inputs from the operator: a test profile and a test image. The program displays and saves results of the analyzed image. The test profile is a text file that contains all the information required to test a particular image capture system. The file contains image quality specifications, system information such as the test site name and camera information including the color profile (sRGB, Adobe RGB, etc.). The test image is captured with the typical camera setup but with the Imaging Gauge™ test target located in the camera Field of View (FOV). Images are saved to a location for subsequent processing. The Imaging Gauge™ program can be installed and operated in a different location from the image capture system. Images are opened and loaded individually through an image dialog window. With input from the test operator, the image is analyzed. Test results are displayed in summary with clear pass/fail indicators. Complete detailed results are automatically exported to a tab-delimited text file for documentation and further analysis.
Imaging Gauge™ is offered in three editions: Engineering, Enterprise and Deployment. These provide different levels of functionality depending on the user’s needs.
- Engineering Edition: Designed for research and engineering environments with full image analysis capability. Test specification profile creation and editing is enabled for text-based (non-encrypted) files only.
- Enterprise Edition: Designed for system integrators and engineers who deploy test systems to production. Includes all functionality of the Engineering Edition with additional capability to create encrypted test profiles and technical contact links for use with the Deployment Edition
- Deployment Edition: Designed for use by non-technical operators in field or production environments. All image tests are performed as in the other editions and summary pass/fail indicators are displayed to the end user The ability to create or edit encrypted test profiles is disabled for this edition. Automated technical support interface is built-in for communicating images and data to a specialist using the Enterprise Edition.
