The test chart is evenly illuminated so that for the low frequency burst at 0.5 MHz the amplitude of the video signal at the output of the correctly positioned and focussed camera is 0% (0V) for the black bars and 100% (700mV / 75 Ohms) for the white bars.

Brand: Sine Image Model: YE0176
Size: 280*210mm

Material: HD photographic paper / Film
Ratio: 4:3 / 16:9 Type: Reflective/ Transmissive
The test chart consists of alternating black and white bars with sharp transition (3-5 micrometers). The spatial variation of the density of these bars is a rectangular function of a cyclic ratio equal to 1. Two groups of bars with video frequencies of 0.5 and 5 MHz are distributed over the picture area whereby the 9 outer and middle positions each are essential for the measurements (the vertical, horizontal and diagonal axes, 10% within the extremities).
The equivalences of video and spatial frequencies are:
CCD format video frequency cycles / mm TVL / picture hight
2/3 inch 0.5 Mhz 5.9 39
  5.0 MHz 59 390
1/2 inch   8.1 39
    81.2 390
Measuring equipment: Video oscilloscope or preferably video oscilloscope with memory
Measuring conditions: The camera settings must be as follows
Shading correction: ON
Aperture correction: OFF
Gamma correction: OFF
Contour correction: OFF
Color correction: OFF
Iris: F/5.6 for 2/3'' CCD, F/4 for 1/2'' CCD
The test chart is evenly illuminated so that for the low frequency burst at 0.5 MHz the amplitude of the video signal at the output of the correctly positioned and focussed camera is 0% (0V) for the black bars and 100% (700mV / 75 Ohms) for the white bars.
Care must be taken to avoid clipping of the signal to be measured at the black and white level. Measurements can be made on the various camera output signals, but preferably on the Y luminance signal (or coded Y with perfect B and W balance). The measurement is made at the center of the image but also on the edges and at the corners so that account is taken of the lateral chromatic aberrations of the lens. The measurements give the contrast lost of the camera response at the value of 5 MHz. The obtained response is a contrast transfer function (CTF).
The relation to calculate the MTF according to the CTF is:
MTF(N) = π/4[CTF(N) + 1/3CTF(3N) – 1/5CTF(5N) + 1/7CTF(7N) – 1/9CTF(9N) + 1/11CTF(11N)..]
where N is the spatial frequency of the test chart analyzed; N in TVL/H
In the - probable - case of a beat affecting camera response for a given spatial frequency, and under certain conditions only, the measured signal reassembles an amplitude-modulated carrier signal, as shown in the following figure:

The percentage of modulation is then defined by the relation:
% mod = M / X
The interference ripple bat this frequency is given by:
p% = m / M
The results of the measurement may be presented in the form of a table representing the various areas of the image measured.

Light measurement

The Japanese Minolta CL-200A chroma meter is suitable for illumination sources, especially some new types of illumination sources, such as light-emitting diode (LED) illumination and organic electroluminescence (Organic EL) illumination. It is used to measure the tristimulus value, chromaticity, chromatic aberration, correlated color temperature and illuminance of the light source. The CL-200A color illuminance meter is used for measurement and adjustment of lighting products, for evaluating the characteristics of light sources, for maintenance of standard light source boxes, for light source research and color detection for projectors, etc.



How the lights should be positioned

The image below summarizes how the lights should be positioned. The goal is even, glare-free illumination. The lamps represent the stacks of three SoLux track lamps, described above. This may involve a tradeoff, especially with wide-angle lenses. Lighting angles between 35 and 45 degrees work well for normal and long lenses. Avoid lighting behind the camera, which can cause glare. Ambient light should be kept subdued. Check carefully for glare and lighting uniformity before you expose, especially with wide angle lenses, where glare can be difficult to avoid: you may have to move the lights further than normal from the target— or allow glare in portions of the target, taking care that it doesn’t affect critical areas.
Use the meter to check for the evenness of lighting. ±20% over the entire target is sufficient for SFR and Distortion measurements, where small portions of the target are analyzed and exposure is not critical. ±5% or better should be the goal for tonal and color measurements (Stepchart, Colorcheck, and Multicharts). This should be easy to achieve because illumination only needs to be even on the relatively small charts themselves, not on the entire target. The widest (the Kodak Q-14) is 14 inches (35 cm) wide; most are under 11 inches (28 cm). Lighting uniformity is strongly affected by the distance and orientation of the lamps. Our lamps are roughly 50 inches (125 cm) from the center of the target.


Chart setup
Charts are mounted on 40x60 inch (100x150 cm) or 30x40 inch (75x100 cm) 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick foam board, which is lightweight, rigid (unlikely to warp), and easy to find at art supply shops. In some cases, the charts are mounted on neutral, middle gray (-18% reflectance) mat board, which is attached to foam board, to ensure correct exposure in camera phones and webcams with autoexposure.
Rope trick (for horizontal positioning)
This trick uses rope and mirrors, as well as the red dots • that mark the horizontal center of the target (or whatever marker you choose).
The cord should be about 1 meter long and have a small weight on one end. A heavy nut— the type that mates with a bolt, not the type that grows on trees— serves well.
Hold the cord in front of the camera (between the camera and mirror), and align your eye and the cord so the so the cord passes in front of the horizontal center markers (red dots • in the images), and so the reflection of the cord passes directly behind the cord. The camera is positioned properly if the center of the lens is aligned with the cord. If it isn’t, shift the camera horizontally until it is.
To complete the horizontal adjustment, rotate (pan) the tripod pan/tilt head so the chart is centered in the image frame.
At this point you should be close enough to correct alignments so the final, fine adjustments should proceed quickly.

Glare in the outer patches can ruin measurements. With semigloss charts is hard to avoid, even with careful lighting placement. You can reduce it by decreasing the angle between the lights and the chart, but this may make the illumination less even. For this reason matte charts are often recommended when wide angle lenses are being tested (this includes most camera phones).
Chart sizes
During production specific regions of test charts are measured to qualify the production process or to additionally create individual reference data acompagnying a test chart. Measured regions can be color or gray tones.
The measurement devices are calibrated regularly and proven before use.
The test charts are available in the sizes listed below. Other size can also be customized, please do not hestitate to ask for additional information.
