Software for the measurement and the check of objects
by means of devices for video magnifications


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

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


   VIDEO VIEW pro is a software for video measurement and video control among the most complete available on the market. One of its key features is the possibility to superimpose some archived images or drawings on the image captured by a video device. The elimination of possible unwished colours on all or part of the superimposed image will allow great transparency and therefore precise superimposition on the video images. The software contains all the functions that allow to perform the most in demand types of measurements so as to satisfy the production control.
   VIDEO VIEW pro is studied to be working with any analogical or digital camera (USB) supported by WDM drivers.

Functions and potentiality of VIDEO VIEW pro

Superimpose image
It superimposes an image or a drawing exported by CAD on the video image for controlling or measuring purpose. It is possible to vary its transparency and size for a more precise superimposition, and can be moved or rotated to adapt it to the object under examination.
Color picker
It allows eliminating from a superimposed image the unnecessary colours or the parts that you wish to make transparent. It is possible to save the new images with the set transparencies.
Concentric circles
It draws concentric circles that cab be superimposed to video images allowing to control tolerances, concentricity or the coincidence and centring of objects inside others. The concentric circles can be created by digiting the desired value of the ray or diameter or by dragging them on the video image. The centring is facilitated by a couple of X-Y axes.
Axe for angular measure
It allows to quickly check the measure of an angle through an axe, rotable manually or digiting the value, combined also to a couple of main rotable X-Yaxes. The external area of the measured angle can be covered by different styles of sampling.
Orthogonal axes
They measure the distance among a couple of horizontal or vertical axes. It is possible to visualize a horizontal scale draggable in a couple of axes Y with personalized colour and number of divisions
Frame saving
The settings of the superimposition of circles, axes and images in transparency can be saved as performed so as to be recalled for other comparisons or measures.
Three categories of measurements are available:
- Simple forms
Line (point-point, continue, orthogonal, length measure, middle point, intersections);
Circle (for ray, for diameter, for more points, perimeter measure, area, ray, diameter, tolerance circles, intersections between 2 circles);
Polygon (for lines, free hand, perimeter measure, area, barycentre, filling colour, single side measure);
Angle (for 3 or 4 point, with 2 lines, degrees or radiant measure, external angle, bisectrix);
Polyline (perimeter, single side measure);
- Distances
Line-Point, Circle-Point, Line-Line, Line-Circle, Circle-Circle
(measures of perpendicular distance);
- Tangents
Circle-Point, Circle-Circle.
All the measurements are visualized with a personalised label, saved automatically and can be directly exported on an Excel spreadsheet.
It magnifies the image up to 250% or it reduces it up to 50% and it is possible to tie the circles built on the image with the zoom value.
Images capture
It is possible to perform one or more snapshots of video images to be then compared and archived .
Image saving
Captured images can be archived in the most common formats (bmp, jpg, gif, tif, png).
Edit Video
Edits a film of video images with the wished compression codec.
Prints the selected image.
It allows writing a message in a label that can be saved with the image .
It magnifies a detail of the video image whose central points is defined by the pointer of the mouse, to perform precise calibrations.
All labels and lines can be personalized in font and colours.
All the superimposed images and the drawings created on the image can be blocked to avoid accidental movements.
Windows alignment
The video window and the captured or opened images windows can be aligned horizontally, vertically or cascade. The video image window in live can be easily reset to the original dimensions.
Available languages
Italian and English.
