FRAMOS, a global partner for vision technologies, is jointly hosting a two-day online training course with the EMVA on the latest EMVA 1288 standard, Release 4.0. This online training, taking place May 19-20, 2021, was developed for engineers and camera developers who perform EMVA 1288 measurements when assessing the quality and performance characteristics of image sensors and industrial cameras, specifically those with extended or multimodal spectral ranges.

Participants will acquire in-depth knowledge of the standard while focusing on extensions introduced in 4.0 Release that addresses nonlinear and HDR cameras as well as UV, SWIR, multispectral and polarisation imaging, and cameras with lenses. They will gain experience in performing EMVA 1288 measurements, utilizing the required measurement equipment, and evaluating their results against theoretic expectations. This process can then be used to evaluate the performance and compare any camera against another (measured curve analysis).

At the end of the course, participants have the option to write their certification examination to gain certification as an EMVA 1288 Expert.  Upon successful completion of the course and exam, participants will get a certificate highlighting that they can successfully carry out the specific camera performance measurements in accordance with EMVA 1288, and correctly interpret their results.

The online training course will be taught by Prof. Dr. Bernd Jähne, a member of the EMVA board, and will be conducted in English only. It is open to anyone who has a basic knowledge of camera sensors and the EMVA 1288 standard. Registration for this event is required in advance. More information on the EMVA 1288 specification can be accessed free of charge from the EMVA webinars at:

The EMVA 1288 Standard – What’s New in the 4.0 Release?

EMVA 1288 is a worldwide standard for the objective characterisation of industrial cameras. Release 3.1 only applied to cameras and image sensors with a linear response curve with no pre-processing applied to the data. The new 4.0 release considerably extends the range of image sensors and cameras that can be measured under the EMVA 1288 standard to coincide with the rapid progress being made in image sensor technologies.
