A new international standard from VCX-Forum
For the last two years, the VCX-Forum has been working on developing a reliable, objective, and comprehensive benchmark for webcam image quality. A few weeks ago, VCX-WebCam 2023 was officially launched. This international standard is one of the first to focus on webcam image quality. It can evaluate the video image quality for integrated and peripheral consumer-grade video conferencing cameras.
Performing CDP tests in our Image Quality Test Lab
The IEEE-P2020 working group is developing a series of metrics that will be outlined in the upcoming release of the first internationally recognized standard for automotive image quality. One of the metrics the group is establishing is contrast detection probability (CDP). Currently, the group is conducting multiple validation tests using the CDP guidelines from the standard. The Image Quality Test Lab at Image Engineering is one of the labs administering these tests.
Follow the link below to learn more about the equipment we used for the tests and see the example test results of CDP.
A temperature-controlled testing device for camera performance testing
iQ-Climate Chamber can generate various temperature ranges for camera performance testing. It is currently the only device on the market for testing a camera system in a temperature-controlled environment.
The device has a test range of -30° to 120° C giving you the ability to create almost any temperature scenario within the confines of your test lab and making it essential when evaluating the performance of a security or automotive camera system.
Vega – high stability illumination
A versatile DC light source for testing flicker response
Vega, one of our newest illumination devices, uses DC technology to create a high-stability light source. DC technology benefits all camera testing, including tests with very short exposure times, e.g., automotive-grade cameras.
- High dynamic range testing
- Very short exposure time testing
- Extremely stable
- Various flicker modes
This device is perfect for those looking for a much more accurate solution for high-intensity measurements, such as contrast detection probability (CDP), modulated mitigation probability (MMP) or flicker, noise, and tone curve measurement.
Upcoming conference schedule
In early 2023, we will be attending two of our most important conferences of the year. The Electronic Imaging conference will take place from January 15-19, 2023, and Photonics West will follow shortly after from January 28 – February 2, 2023. We look forward to seeing many familiar faces again and showcasing the latest advancements in image quality testing. We hope to see you in the new year!
- Electronic Imaging – January 15-19, 2023 – San Francisco, CA
- Photonics West – January 28 – February 2, 2023 – San Francisco, CA
