Automatic Image Quality Analysis of Arbitrary Targets with Colorite

Institutions are often reluctant to introduce color management because they believe that an introduction demands large changes to existing digitization workflows and results in lower production volumes. To make the introduction easier and to simplify image quality analysis, the Digital Production Division at the National Library of Sweden has developed Colorite. Colorite is a cross-platform software tool for automatic target-based analysis of image quality, designed with emphasis on both flexibility and efficiency. The flexibility enables institutions to incorporate Colorite into a wide range of production environments with minimal changes to existing workflows and the efficiency allows for large production volumes.

Colorite employs state-of-the-art image matching algorithms to allow for the use of both arbitrary targets and of arbitrary target placements. Colorite accurately determines the location of an arbitrary target in the image frame without any user intervention, regardless of the target's placement and orientation. Using the location of the target, Colorite automatically computes a comprehensive suite of established image quality metrics that are compared to pre-determined tolerances. The results from the comparison are presented individually for each metric and areas in which the quality needs to be improved are automatically pinpointed.

More about this publication?
  • The IS&T (digital) Archiving Conference offers a unique opportunity for imaging scientists and those working in the cultural heritage community (curators, archivists, librarians, photographers etc) from around the world to come together to discuss the most pressing issues related to the digital preservation and stewardship of hardcopy, and other cultural heritage documents and objects. Authors come from museums, archives, libraries, government institutions, industry and academia. Cutting edge topics related to multispectral and 3D imaging, as well as best practices for workflow, sharing, standards, and asset/collection management and dissemination are explored in papers presented at this annual, international event.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in pertuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
