Image Quality Testing & Tuning

Image Quality Laboratory TESTiLABS

TESTiLABS’s image quality testing and tuning services cover all tests needed in camera R&D chain, from camera module to final imaging product. We have access to world class camera laboratory located in Tampere, Finland, which are part of a one of a kind image quality testing facility in the world. Also, TESTiLABS software solutions enables cost effective testing due automated testing and reporting.

Image quality testing leads to higher quality and reduced development time

The traditional way of doing camera (image quality) tuning is to start the tuning process when product prototypes are available (see Current in the picture below).
However, TESTiLABS camera tuning process contains two steps:

  1. Camera module characterization and pre-tuning:
    We start image quality tuning work when camera and flash modules are available. In fact, camera and flash modules are tested in reference environment and the characterization results are then used to generate initial tunings.
  2. Full Tuning:
    After the product prototypes are available work continues by 3 more tuning steps: Mid Tuning, Fine Tuning and Final Tuning.
