Paper Abstract

To analyze the streak image directly, we have developed a new image processing system. The system consists of a high sensitive television camera and a microprocessor-based video image analyzer. The streak image can be observed easily on the TV monitor screen,and at the same time the video signal is digitized, then displayed with an intensity profile of 256 channels. The y factor Houtput)nu(input() is within 1% of unity over an input light range of better than 200:1 for a single video frame. By integration of 256 frames, the linear dynamic range can be extended to 1000:1 or greater. The system provides many features for the precise analysis of an intensity profile. The output is available to a chart recorder or to a host computer.
