When TV screens continually become bigger, quality inspection must continually happen faster.
Technology makes it possible: TV screens continue to be offered in bigger and bigger formats – despite the large TFT screens, the image quality remains razor sharp. This has consequences for quality inspection: display screen surfaces have to be inspected with at least the same rate of speed, while at the same time with a higher level of precision and an increasing data rate.
For the required high speeds, line cameras with a CoaXPress connection are recommended. To ensure fast data analysis, color interpolation can take place within a Silicon Software microEnable IV frame grabber prepared for just such situations.

Document scanning made more flexible with VisualApplets
In some applications, document scanning requires a high level of flexibility: for example, captured images have to be straightened using image rotation, perspective must be properly represented, and relationships of distance and lines have to be reproduced. The demands on affine images also occur in cartography, among others.
Using VisualApplets, image rotation and affine transformation can be programmed individually according to client- and application-specific demands and carried out directly within the frame grabber’s FPGA. In this manner, image preprocessing can take place within a stand-alone system that can be easily integrated into existing networks.
