Boulder, CO and Wakefield, MA USA, October 9, 2015—Imatest, LLC, a leader in image quality testing software, test charts and services, and Optikos Corporation, the leading provider of metrology products and services and optically-based design, today announced a collaborative effort between the two development teams to support clients interested in both the sophisticated imaging of Optikos® camera testing products and the breadth of analysis offered by Imatest software and testing charts.
Traditional target techniques and charts often become impractical either when measuring large fields of view or long target distances. This market need led to the development and release of Imatest 4.2, the first partnered solution.
Imatest now supports the analysis of images captured using the Meridian® Production Camera Test System by Optikos®—a revolutionary testing approach that employs multiple target projectors at precise angles to provide real-time measurement and analysis of image quality—by including sharpness tested at infinity with Imatest 4.2., and may augment or be used in place of the Meridian® Prime software provided with the test suite according to the client’s testing needs.
According to Imatest CEO, Jeff Herman, “The Optikos® delivery system offers sophisticated imaging with a compact footprint, while Imatest is able to add powerful image analysis to the system’s back end for a winning combination.”
“We appreciate the variety of software modules that Imatest brings to the table. They have a large loyal following for which their software and test charts have worked really well,” commented Optikos CTO, David Imrie, Ph.D., “while Optikos adds an ability to generate a high quality image in the most challenging applications.”
