IMAGING GAUGETM Home Page

The IMAGING GAUGETM quality analysis system was developed by APPLIED IMAGE, Inc. to address the growing need to standardize the assessment of camera image quality. The system includes a Test Target and accompanying software to analyze the target and report image quality metrics. Our goal is to provide a standard tool that can be utilized by R&D scientists, system integrators, technicians and field operators to assess and standardize camera quality from image to image and place to place over time.

Windows-based: Powerful, yet requires no specialized knowledge to run. Detailed results and specification profiles can be easily accessed by advanced users. Primary Image Quality metrics include:

  • Color Accuracy for standard color spaces
  • Resolution of sensor and optical components
  • Tonescale characteristic curve (OECF)
  • Neutral Balance of gray color patches
  • Color Channel Registration
  • Lighting and Sensor Uniformity

IMAGING GAUGE software is offered in three versions:

  • Engineering Edition: Developed for research and engineering environments to provide full image analysis capability.  Specification profile creation and editing is enabled for text-based (non-encrypted) files.

  • Enterprise Edition: Developed 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: Developed for use by non-technical operators in field or production environments.  All tests are performed but detailed test results and profile editing capability are not included.

The APPLIED IMAGE, Inc. IMAGING GAUGE Test Targets are manufactured from the highest quality imaging materials available. The Munsell colors used are the same as those used on the X-Rite, Inc. Macbeth Colorchecker and are calibrated using measuring instruments which are traceable to NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA).

IMAGING GAUGE test targets incorporate both human-readable and machine-readable resolution features to enable the correlation of measurements to real-world images. All features are printed on high-quality silver-halide paper for durability and consistency.

Available in three square sizes: 1 ft, 2 ft. and 4 ft.

Targets are mounted on rigid 6mm PVC board. A tripod and sheet-metal mounting bracket for each target size are available to enable precise, stable positioning in the lab or in the field.
