The iQ-Analyzer is no longer available for purchase as of January 15, 2021. We now offer the iQ-Analyzer-X, the next generation of image quality testing.

The iQ-Analyzer-X introduces the next generation of image quality evaluation. In this phase of the iQ-Analyzer evolution, we made the decision to completely overhaul the entire software and essentially rebuild from scratch using only C++. As a result, we have created an exceptionally modern and advanced software that is already proving to be a game changer in the field of image quality evaluation.

Please check the iQ-Analyzer-X product page for all the details.

We are also offering a Free version of the iQ-Analyzer-X. Try it today!
