Revealing hidden information in digital images
Quantitative information is of great importance within manufacturing and quality control, bringing objectivity and confidence to the decision-making process. Under the correct conditions, an image acquired with light microscopy will contain a wealth of information, but the trick is how to extract and utilise this effectively.
Our latest white paper, brought to you by Olympus, covers many of these methods, focusing on the importance of software throughout the entire workflow.
Two new tools for the image processing library „Common Vision Blox“ (CVB), the „CVB Video Stabilizer“ for recording and compensating image transformations and „CVB Optical Flow“ for the computer-supported determination of motion components in images.
