ForenPix software for image capture and comparison:
ForenPix® is a software application providing numerous and powerful functions for the acquisition and processing of images coming from a monochromatic or colour video camera.

Running under MS-WINDOWS™, it displays images in wide format in live acquisition without the need of any special graphic controller (requires at minimum 24-bit XGA 4-MB configuration).

In addition to the usual functions for image digitalization and archiving, ForenPix® provides a lot of original functions aimed at the examination of objects, such as the visual comparison of images by juxtaposition or superimposition (one of them in live acquisition).

For example, thanks to these functions, a simple microscope can be used as a comparison microscope.

Main software functions:

  • General purpose functions
  • image acquisition (PAL, NTSC, monochromatic or colour), contrast enhancement by image integration,
  • image transfer to other WINDOWS™ applications (copy/paste through the clipboard),
  • hard disk operations (store and load, BMP and JPEG formats),
  • contrast and brightness measurements, luminance profile, histogram, ...
  • geometric measurements in the image (distances, areas, angles...),
  • geometric operations (mirror, zoom, rotation, selective colour image shift,...); may be applied to static or dynamic images (still image or in continuous acquisition).
  • Special forensic functions
  • enhancement of weakly contrasted images, edge extraction (including in live acquisition), grain filtering,...
  • comparison of images by juxtaposition, alternation, inclusion, superimposition in two different colours (one image live, the other one memorised).
    Compared images may be displayed normally or by their outlines (real-time edge extraction),
  • trichromatic image reconstruction by combining three monochrome images,
  • Software options :
    - FX-01 : multi-directional revelation of relieves (indented writing, dry stamps, embossing, logos),
    - FX-02 : combination of multi-spectral images (ink cancellation, selection of pigments, reading of overwritten texts, fingerprint extraction from background, ...).
    - FX-03 : software module aimed at decoding hidden information in images (ICAO documents).

  • Image capture interface
Live image acquisitition requires a video card (FG-41, PCI bus), or an external video converter with USB-2 connection (IMD-55).
formats : PAL, NTSC, monochrome or colour (composite, Y/C or S-video), 768x576 pixels (US format available).
For the HR (high-resolution) version, the image acquisition is carried out by means of an IEEE-1394 (Firewire) port, or USB-2 port, according to the type of digital camera
