Regions of interest (ROI) are the mechanism by which the user defines how to use the R&S®AdVISE system. A wide range of analytical methods covers a broad spectrum of visual inspection:
Illumination intensity

  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for text and numbers
    with option R&S®ADV-K1060
  • Indicator brightness and color
  • Analog indicator position
  • Presence or absence of symbols and icons
  • Change of numbers and fonts
  • Flashing indicator characteristics
  • Stop of motion
  • Audiomonitoring - Check of wanted or unwanted noise with option R&S®ADV1062

Video protocol and test report

Integrated protocol utilities

R&S®AdVISE creates a video protocol and an event list. What sets the system apart in usability is the indexing feature of the integrated video player. This feature allows the user to go to any event in the video just by clicking on the event information. The player also enables the user to collect a single frame as a JPEG image and to collect a clip of the video to be used for reports or archiving. The event list itself can be saved as a PDF test report.

Generic remote control interface:

  • Open for any external control software
  • Passes summary Go/NoGo information to the control software
  • Control software can transmit test information to be inserted into the incoming and recorded video

  Extended remote control interface:
  • Supported in R&S EMC control software R&S®EMC32 and R&S®ELEKTRA
  • Same features as generic interface
  • Provides in addition the test results of the individual ROIs for graphical processing in R&S®EMC32
