Vision Research's product specs adopt EMVA 1288 testing standard.
Vision Research announced it has updated its published product specifications to incorporate European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) 1288 testing standards to measure sensor characteristics. EMVA 1288 measures performance in machine vision cameras; Vision Research is the first to apply it to RAM-based high-speed cameras. The inclusion means the company won’t be including ISO 12232 measurements for their products. Quantum efficiency, temporal dark noise, dynamic range and absolute sensitivity threshold are among the parameters specified in an EMVA 1288 report. Referencing these in addition to pixel size, resolution and throughput provides the information necessary to compare cameras in terms of image response.
