Image Quality Analysis

Historically, print and image quality evaluation has been hampered by reliance on subjective judgment and guesswork. But not any more. QEA has developed a full line of quantitative, reliable image analysis tools, encompassing sophisticated, fully-automated camera-based systems, automated scanner-based systems, portable hand-helds for distinctness of image (DOI) measurements, and a portable color measurement toolkit.

Every printing technology: electrophotography, inkjet, thermal, flexography and more

Applications of every kind rely on our IAS® series instruments to:

  • Monitor print quality
  • Analyze components
  • Analyze process performance
  • Eliminate guesswork
  • Boost productivity
  • Facilitate quick, reliable decisions

The information you need

IAS® series instruments apply the ISO-13660 international standard in quantifying a multitude of print quality attributes:

  • Dots
  • Lines
  • Text
  • Density
  • Color
  • Graininess
  • Mottle
  • Banding
  • Satellites
  • Background
  • Ghosting
  • Inter-color bleed
  • …and many more

The best tool for you

The flexibility built into IAS® tools gives you the choices you need:

  • Select from bench-top or portable hand-held models
  • Choose scanner-based or fully automated camera-based systems
  • Define your own pass/fail criteria, or let the system apply default settings
  • Choose the system that’s right for answering your image-quality questions
