PRESS RELEASE: Third generation of Imatest software released
June 19th, 2008 - Imatest is proud to announce our 3rd generation of imaging quality analysis software. Imatest Studio 3.0 has replaced Imatest Light as our consumer-level product, while Imatest Master 3.0 has replaced Imatest Pro as our enterprise-level software. Imatest Studio 3.0 and Master 3.0 both include numerous enhancements, including full support for Bayer RAW formats, and improved tolerance for distorted images in Colorcheck.
Note that Imatest's pricing policies have changed. This will not affect customers with current licenses, and customers with expired licenses can upgrade at a discounted price.
Imatest Master 3.0 can be downloaded at no cost by customers with a current Imatest Pro license. Customers with expired licenses can upgrade at a reduced cost.
Imatest Master SC (Small Company) is identical to Master but is offered only to companies with 5 or fewer employees, so small companies can upgrade or purchase Imatest at a reduced price.
New features in Imatest Master include
- Single color analysis in SFR, which is faster than the standard 4- color analysis and useful for filtered images where some channels may have invalid data
- X and y-spacing and aspect ratios of the grid pattern is now displayed in the Distortion intersection plot (useful for analyzing scanner aspect ratio distortion)
- Secondary readouts in the SFR MTF plot can be emphasized.
Imatest API, our premium product for integrated and automated image analysis solutions, has been enhanced to include new features of Master as well as multiple image file selection using wildcard characters.
Imatest Studio is only for sale to individuals or single-person companies. Therefore, individual users with current Light licenses can install Studio 3.0, at no cost, or can upgrade expired Light licenses to Studio 3.0. Companies having more than one employee should upgrade to Master or Master SC if they want to receive the benefits of the new product line.
