Turning the spotlight on Matrox Imaging’s photometric stereo tools

Matrox header

Matrox Imaging Library (MIL)—and soon, Matrox Design Assistant—software include powerful photometric stereo tools.

What is photometric stereo? In short, a technique to synthesize a composite, enhanced-contrast image from a series of source images. This tool highlights changes to surface curvature and material, revealing raised or recessed defects like dents or scratches, or features like stamped or embossed symbols. It removes specular reflections when looking at something behind a transparent wrapper.

Join Pierantonio Boriero, director of product management at Matrox Imaging, for a Q&A on how photometric stereo synthesizes images, reveals surface defects and anomalies, and employs appropriate directional lighting for optimized image capture.
