Image Processing Systems-IPS
The Colutron image processing system (IPS) is an optional addition to the Colutron Beam Imaging Systems (BIS), and the Colutron Beam Viewing Systems (BVS). The system allows the user to capture, display, store and process images from the BIS and BVS video cameras. The systems include a 1 or 4 MB frame grabber board, software, cables and a high resolution 13" Sony Trinitron RGB color video monitor. Some of the features of the system are shown below.
MODEL IPS-1 IMAGE PROCESSING SYSTEM(1MB,14.3 MHZ Clock)
MODEL IPS-2 IMAGE PROCESSING SYSTEM(4MB,14.3 MHZ Clock)
Image processing systems include video frame grabber board (IBM PC),software, cables, and 13" color RGB video monitor
FRAME GRABBER BOARD FEATURES
1 or 4 megabyte image memory (IPS-1 or IPS-2) 8 bits per pixel
8000 to 4 pixels per line 1020 to 2 lines per field
RS-170,RS-330 and CCIR input/output Genlock to external timing sources
Variable timing for non-standard formats External input/output for event sync
Pseudo-color display on RGB monitor PC/AT bus compatible
Generates RS-170 or CCIR video timing Programmable timing/resolution
Six input video multiplexer
Video rate image sequence capture. Triggered event acquisition. Continuous sequence acquisition
until terminated by trigger event. Trigger on TTL signal, time of day, keyboard, mouse, video time code.
Software zoom, pan or scroll
Enhance and pseudo color
Set lookup tables numerically: linear ramps, log curve, gamma curve, mathematical expression.
Set lookup tables interactively: sliding controls for black level, gain, high contrast window.
2-D plot of pixel values across line, column, or image buffers: overplot reference data, subtract
baseline data, filter, color, size, label.
3-D plot of pixel values, color, rotate, size, label. Numerical display of pixel values, in same or
successive image buffers. Pixel scope: continuous update of numerical display or plot while capturing
A few of the many processing functions include Pixel AND, XOR, compliment, dither, scale, offset,
contrast enhance, user defined value mappings. Image pair add, subtract, AND, XOR, average, weighted
product and ratio, user defined expression. Filters, edge detectors, convolutions, discrete fourier transform
(and FFT) .
Image import/export with standard TIFF format
Operate on full image buffer, or rectangular area of interest selected by quadrants, coordinates,
or interactive placement via cursor keys or mouse.
