Avia inspection software released by the Value Engineering Alliance detects subtle defects in large (∼10 gigapixel) images. It compares images of items or scenes of interest with their stored reference images, and all differences that it identifies as exceeding user-specified size and contrast thresholds are located, marked, ranked and tabulated. The user reviews the Internet-compatible defect/error reports that are generated, annotates them and initiates the appropriate corrective actions. Applications include label inspection and automated proofreading systems in the pharmaceutical and medical industries.
