Software for the vision and measurement in 2D
of the images coming from a video source


version 3.4
To recognize all video sources connected to a PC working with Windows WDM drivers.
After selecting the device the software will automatically set and open the image allowing to see the total field of view depending on the actual screen resolution (it saves you from moving the window inside the screen’s bounds to analyze the image).
To set the configuration of all parameters available with the camera and to save them for the next startup of the PC (for predisposed cameras).
To bring the video in front of the other windows and to restore the zoom factor to the 100% with just a click (this function is especially useful when many images are open with the software).

Automatic optic calibration
function that permits to calculate automatically the conversion between pixel and real measure unit to make measurements

Assisted focus
the assisted focus helps the user in the optimal focus in a given area
To zoom keeping a complete control on the value of the video resolution.
To scale the video image to fit the actual screen’s width or height.
To set the camera’s white balance (if available with the camera) with just a click.
To set brightness and contrast from software (also if not available on the camera).
To convert the image in Black and White or in negative.
To add chromatic filters (useful to remove a selected color).
To calibrate in cm, mm, µm, inch o pixel nine optics for each camera.
To open a magnifying glass from the menu for operations of high precision.
When the “optic calibration” function is open this “glass” is automatically shown to give a better accuracy during the calibration.
To scale automatically the measure value related to the actual zoom value.
If the video is zoomed all measures already done and the future ones are automatically adjusted. In this way you can have a smaller field of view but a better accuracy for measures.
Moreover, if you are using a ruler with a large number of ticks, these will be re-adjusted to the new zoom factor with great comfort of operator.
To place images on the screen for a comparison in an automatic disposition: cascade, vertically tiled, horizontally tiled.
To take a photo at the desired resolution (the region shown on the screen including measures and notes) or in HD (the camera’s maximum resolution, without any overlay).
Cameras with high resolutions (i.e. 5Mpx or more) have a very low frame rate at the maximum resolution that does not allow to have a fluid and continuous image stream. For this reason Video View can work at a lower resolution but taking photos at the camera’s maximum resolution anyway. Moreover, a HD photo (obtained from cameras with 5 Mpx or more) keeps a good fidelity of details also if it is zoomed.
To take a sequence of photos in a specific interval and with a frequency desired .
the photos are stored automatically in a desired directory.
To save photos with VIF format. With this format all data (optic, zoom, video parameters, etc.) will be stored along with the photo. Everywhere and every time, also without the video device, you can re-open photos, zoom them, make measures, simply using Video View.
The VIF files you open do not have any overlay (measures, notes, etc.).
To take photos of an image used to draw measures with the aim of store it including all measures.
To save images in the most common formats (jpg, bmp, etc.). When you take a photo on the video image, a copy is stored (if desired) without measures and notes, in the proprietary format VIF at the same resolution of the image just saved.
To open one or more image files in the most common formats.
To record movies with a good quality and open them immediately in the acquisition format (you can use several codec).
To directly print from the software one or two images on the same page (A4), horizontally or vertically, with totally automatic placement or with personal settings (for size, position, page centering) and with the availability to add notes.
To automatically recognize the best camera video formats, highlighting them to make the choice evident for you (to work in a rapid and optimal way).
To add a note on the image with the desired size.
To use a ruler setting the number and size of ticks, with the desired color, and save it. With the mouse you can move the ruler, with just a click, on the exact start point of the measure.
To use a cross with the desired color and size to find the position of a fixed point on the image.
To use a couple of axis and to evaluate in real time the distance between them.
To use a square with the desired size, ticks and color, useful to count the number of fibres, cells, warps, etc. within a defined region.
To measure Lines: point-point; drag.
To measure Polygons: segments; free hand.
To measure Polylines: segments; free hand.
To measure Circles: by radius; by diameter; points.
To measure Angles: 3 points; 4 points.
To measure Ellipses: 3 points.
To measure Distances.
To measure Tangents: circle-point; circle-circle.
To measure Intersections.
To configure all drawn objects (color, width, label, etc.).
To add the internal and external tolerance for drawn circles.
To show the desired data in the measure’s labels.
To export measure’s data in a Microsoft Excel workspace.
To create concentric circles setting their size or directly drawing them on the video.
To apply a painting cover (to send to back a portion of the video highlighting the other one).
To modify the axis angle and to move circles every time you want.
To personalize the concentric circles (color, width, etc.), and save all the configuration.
To overlay an image or a CAD drawing on the video image, in transparence, setting the angle, size and absolute position and saving it with all its parameters (including the position on the video).
To personalize all the stored or just saved photos with “Giotto”. Photos can be modified, chromatically corrected, cropped, etc. in a very simple way.
For medical use it is included (for completeness) the software “Global Medical Data” useful to manage patients and medical analysis of doctors.
To use the new ruler ABSOLUTE OVT to see the measures directly on PC
to remove from a overlay image colors to make transparent it and overlay it on the video stream

Digital collimator.
With this function you see immediately if two objects collimate otherwise you will see the movement

To control until 4 cameras at the same time with the Multicam View Software

This function permits to take some photos with different focus points and to merge them in a single photo completely in focus

Default available languages

NOTE: marks the excellence functions that few other software can boast.

   With VIDEO VIEW basic it is possible:

   Recognize all video sources connected to a PC that use Windows WDM driver. When the interested peripheral is selected the software will set and will open automatically the image allowing it the entire visualization in function of the monitor resolution in use (it avoids dragging continually the imagine in the monitor visibility range to can analyze it).
   Set the personalization of all video parameters available in the television camera and memorize them for the next PC starting (for the prepared television cameras).
   Bring the video in close up and to 100% with a simple click, useful function especially when you have several photos opened in the program.
   Put the image on full screen video adapting it to the monitor maximum height and width.
   Calibrate in cm, mm, µm or inch nine optics, so get back them after in accordance with the measures to perform.
   Make measurements at any zoom factor (no need to make measurements on the magnification with wich you have calibrated the optic).   
   Measure with axes, lines, circles, angles and polygons. In every function it is possible to change the colour and the lines thickness.

Correct brightness, contrast, colors, color inversion (negative), B&W image directly in live with any camera. It will accentuate details not viewable by changing the normal parameters of a video camera.

   Add to the image a desired sizes comment.

   Capture more images and prepare them on the screen in automatic way: cascading, vertical, horizontal.

   Save the images with measurements and comments in the more common formats (jpg, bmp, ecc.) and contemporarily save a copy, without measurements and comments, automatically and to the television camera maximum resolution in a predefined folder.
   Open one or more image files in the more known formats.
Create a custom pair of axes with division (with an option to save them) to perform quick and easy measurements.

   Work with two X-Y axes couples (personalizable colour and thickness) able to perform measurements in function of the objective used, can rotate them and block them visualizing the position in degrees, first and second ones. It is possible to move them with the mouse or with micrometrically with appropriate buttons on the form video.

   Subdivide the X-Y axes distances in a desired colour and labels number (this allows an immediate measurement of the objects).

   Open an image (taken also from a CAD drawing) over the video imagine in “live”, set the transparency and re-evaluating adjusting it to the imagine for controls and collimations.


   Rotate, resize, move, block the imagine in transparency or hook it to the axles couples rotation. Save the imagine statements in transparency.
   Make good quality films and can see again them immediately in the acquisition format (possibility to use different codec).

   Zoom from 10% to 500%; have always well visible the actual zoom value and a panel with the zoomed imagine selection visible directly on the preview, with the possibility to drag it manually on another zone. Come back to 100% with a click.

   Print directly from the program one or two images on the same sheet, in horizontal or vertical, with completely automatic presetting or with the possibility to personalized statements both in the sizes both in the positions and centering on the sheet.

   Count the number of elements in a default visual area of 1x1cm or 0,5"x0,5" (ideal tool also in textile field for the counting of yarn).

Correct, customize the quality of the images quickly and easily with Giotto directly in your Video View.
This will allow you to create an archive for presentations or where to draw on for a direct dialogue with various customers or suppliers.

   Manage a multiuser database for customer management with the possibility to store the images from the acquired workings (it is available also a specific database for the medical sector, GLOBAL MEDICAL DATA) - on request
