MVP Color Optimizer is a software tool that optimizes the color image quality achievable from single chip imagers that use a Bayer-pattern color filter array. Available as an IP core for either Xilinix or Altera FPGA or an Active X control (COM), MVP Color Optimizer is easily integrated into most applications that run on a PC under the Windows Operating System.
MVP Color Optimizer determines and corrects deficiencies inherent in the capture of color images when using a camera with a single-chip Color Filter Array (CFA) sensor. MVP Color Optimizer works to minimize color artifacts (e.g. "rainbow-colored edges") and renders the colors in the image to more closely match that of the original object (i.e. ISCC-like device-independent color rendering). MVP Color Optimizer performs these tasks automatically with little or no user intervention.
Optimal color quality is achieved by imaging a color target, such as the MacBeth Color Checker ™ . MVP Color Optimizer automatically extracts and analyzes the data from the image of the color target and determines parameters that provide the optimal image quality achievable for your images. Once determined, these parameters are then serialized and saved for future processing of images.
Multiple image frames and sequences are easily processed (i.e. optimally converted to full color images) via a simple command sequence.
