Implementing and using the EMVA1288 standard
We have measured cameras of various kinds on our test equipment. The test system design and all the measurement sets require to go in the details of the standard and also show us how good it can be but also how difficult it can be.

The purpose of this paper is to give feedback on the standard, based on our experience of implementers and users. We will see that some measurements are easily reproducible and can easily be implemented while others require more research on hardware, software and procedures and also that the results can sometimes have very little meaning. Our conclusion will be that the EMVA1288 standard is good and well suited for the measurement and characterization of image sensors and cameras for image processing applications but that it is hard for a newcomer to understand the produced data and properly use a test equipment.

How to extend the operating temperature of FPGAs
Our high temperature camera for oil and gas wells inspection requires to operate at very high temperatures above the specified operating junction temperature of the FPGAs and with limited cooling possibilities. This article published in the Xilinx XCell journal explains how we have achieved this.

Doppler effect based hyperspectral imaging
There are multiple solutions for hyperspectral imaging, all of them include either grating or filters and therefore lose spatial resolution (2D patterns) or time resolution (1D patterns or line scan or push broom). In this paper, we present a method for hyperspectral imaging that does not require either gratings or multiple filters and that maintains the full 2D resolution of the sensor and arbitrary small wavelength resolution is possible. However, the camera may become heavy.

High Dynamic Range Imaging: Sensors and architectures
This ebook provides the reader with a basic knowledge of high dynamic range image sensors and techniques for industrial and non-industrial applications. It describes various sensor and pixel architectures to achieve high dynamic range imaging as well as software approaches to make high dynamic range images out of lower dynamic range sensors or image sets. The book follows a mathematical approach to define the amount of information and information rate that can be extracted from the image for each of the methods described. This book is not about the artistic side of high dynamic range images.
The typical application is automotive on-board vision where the dynamic range of the scene is high and important information is often hidden in darker areas (lane departure warning, pedestrian detection and other). HiDy is involved in several industrial application like inspection of highly reflective materials or welding. HiDy is also very important in security.

LEARNING OUTCOMES
This book will enable you to:
1. describe various approaches to achieve high dynamic range imaging
2. predict the behavior of a given sensor or architecture on a scene
3. specify the sensor or system requirements for a high dynamic range pplication
4. classify the types of high dynamic range applications

INTENDED AUDIENCE
This material is intended for anyone who needs to learn more about high dynamic range imaging. Optical engineers, electronic engineers and marketing people will find useful information for their next high dynamic range application.

2012 PAPER BOOK AND PDF VERSIONS
The e-book has now been published as an actual book by SPIE press. The book can be purchased on the SPIE website.
