Meridian™ Production Camera Testing
Optikos CorporationRequest Info
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.
