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.

IPS Models

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

 

SOFTWARE FEATURES

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
     images.
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.
