  • Meridian™ Production Camera Testing

Optikos CorporationRequest Info
Optikos Meridian The proliferation of small aperture camera technology in small aperture devices such as webcams, vehicle cameras, and cell phones has created a need for high-speed optical test equipment that is capable of qualifying the alignment and focus of a camera in just a single snapped frame. This requirement means that multiple field points within the image must be presented to the unit under test simultaneously.

Where the Optikos® Meridian product line differs from other clusters of target projectors is in the manner in which the field angles are established. After considering several approaches in which collimator angles, for example, could be adjusted—and would need to be individually established by the user—we dismissed the idea of a “universal” system as simply being too clumsy and unworkable in a production environment.

Instead, we chose to leverage the parametric capabilities of today’s CAD software and the remarkable precision of three and five axis CNC machining to deliver target projector assemblies that are tailored to perfectly fit the testing requirements of specific cameras.

The Meridian Arch hardware is well-suited to customers who require just a few projector assemblies or to those clients who need a test setup for evaluation purposes or production use with the shortest possible delivery time.

The product line is an entire solution for camera testing and includes the Meridian Prime software package for analyzing the images captured by the camera under test. Imatest users may now use the recently released Imatest 4.2 SFRreg module in conjunction with Meridian hardware.

Optikos provides innovative applications of optical technology to a range of government, commercial, and consumer products organizations worldwide. Organizations of all types—from startups to Fortune 500 companies—seek out Optikos for its expertise in optically-based product design, development and manufacturing, and cutting-edge metrology products and services.

The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
image quality
A measure of the closeness with which an optical image is capable of resembling the original object. The factors that affect image quality are lens aberrations, diffraction, dirt and stray light within the system, and atmospheric turbulence and haze outside it. If the image is recorded photographically, it can become further degraded by image motion during exposure and by light diffusion in the emulsion. At one time image quality was expressed by its resolving power, but today a more meaningful...
A lens aberration that results in the tangential and sagittal image planes being separated axially.  
A general term referring to the situation in which an image is not a true-to-scale reproduction of an object. The term also is used to connote the temporal alteration of the signal's waveform shape. There are many types of distortion. See also anamorphic distortion; curvilinear distortion; keystone distortion; panoramic distortion; perspective distortion; radial distortion; stereoscopic distortion; tangential distortion; wide-angle distortion.
The general term for the application of light to a subject. It should not be used in place of the specific quantity illuminance.
