FRAMOS Offers Training for Updated EMVA 1288 Standard

By Joel Davies -

In cooperation with the EMVA, FRAMOS will host another training course on the EMVA 1288 standard that explores the new innovations in the latest “Release 4.0”.

Together with the EMVA, FRAMOS has adapted the training to include the new features introduced as part of Release 4.0. EMVA 1288 is a worldwide standard for the objective characterisation of industrial cameras. Release 3.1 was limited to cameras and image sensors with a linear response curve that had no pre-processing applied to the data. Release 4.0 extends the range of image sensors and cameras that can be measured under the EMVA 1288 standard to coincide with the progress being made in image sensor technologies.

The training is designed for engineers and camera developers who perform EMVA 1288 measurements to assess the quality and performance characteristics of image sensors and industrial cameras, specifically those with extended or multimodal spectral ranges. Participants will acquire knowledge of the standard whilst focusing on extensions introduced in Release 4.0 that addresses nonlinear and HDR cameras as well as UV, SWIR, multispectral, and polarisation imaging and cameras with lenses.

Participants will also gain experience in performing EMVA 1288 measurements, utilizing the required measurement equipment, and evaluating their results against theoretical expectations. This process can then be used to evaluate the performance and compare any camera against others (measured curve analysis).

Upon completion of the course, participants have the opportunity to write the certification examination to be recognized as an EMVA 1288 expert where they will receive a certificate that highlights the successful completion of the specific camera performance measurements in accordance with EMVA 1288.

The online training course will be taught by Professor Dr Bernd Jähne, a member of the EMVA board. Professor Dr Bernd Jähne founded the Heidelberg Collaboratory for Image Processing (HCI) at Heidelberg University and has been EMVA 1288 Chair since 2008, and a member of the EMVA board since 2015. He has authored several books, including a standard textbook on image processing that has been republished in several languages.

The online training course will be conducted in English and is open to anyone who has a basic knowledge of camera sensors and the EMVA 1288 standard. The cost is €599 or USD $659 and registration is required in advance. The updated online training takes place May 3rd to 5th, 2022 and is scheduled from 16:00 – 21:00 CEST, 10:00 – 15:00 EDT and 7:00 – 12:00 PDT.
