Imatest partners with Davidson Optronics for integrated image-quality testing system

JANUARY 7, 2009--Imatest and Davidson Optronics have partnered to deliver an integrated system that they say will enable rapid, automatic testing of video system image quality and subsequent reconfiguration of system components and settings.

JANUARY 7, 2009--Imatest (Boulder, CO, USA; www.imatest.com), a supplier of digital image-quality testing software, and Davidson Optronics (West Covina, CA, USA; www.davidsonoptronics.com), a provider of video sensor testing equipment, have partnered to deliver an integrated system that they say will enable rapid, automatic testing of video system image quality and subsequent reconfiguration of system components and settings.

Davidson Optronics' TV Optoliner now projects SFRplus test patterns that are quickly and automatically analyzed by Imatest software to assess sharpness, lateral chromatic aberration, and distortion. In addition, the TV Optoliner Colorbar/Greyscale test pattern, used to assess both luminance and color response, can be analyzed using Imatest's new vectorscope capability.

"People who use the TV Optoliner system will be delighted by the new SFRplus test pattern and the improvements in automation, objectivity, and speed it affords. Add to that our new software-based vectorscope to analyze Colorbar/Greyscale test patterns, and the resulting package should prove very attractive to TV Optoliner users," says Randy Bockrath, CEO at Imatest.
