Pixara is a highly modular based system, where you purchase the modules you need. Not only does this give you a cheaper solution, the usability is easier since you do not need to find your way around in menus you never use. At any point in time, you can add additional modules in case your need changes.
Without any of the modules, you can load images, calibrate images, do simple measurements as well as basic image processing (such as crop, flip) etc.
Listed here is the available modules in short:
Allow you to connect a live video camera and capture images. Pixara is compatible with "any" Direct Show camera, but we highly recommend IDS cameras for best user experience and image quality. The capture module you also enables you to define calibrated input devices (such as a microscope) and calibrate each magnification.
Organize all you images into cases, add user configurable text data and keep your measurements together with the image it was measured on. Share your data with other users. Search for cases using whatever information you have.
By default simple interactive calibrated measurement tools such as length and area is included. With the Analysis module you add on more advanced interactive measurements such as Radius, Angle and Count tool.
With the analysis module you also enables the software to view measurement in a result table, Export to Excel, show Statistics and save result to database, etc
OBJECT ANALYSIS MODULE
With this module you add support for measuring objects, determined by their gray scale level. Measure features such as object size, object width, number of objects and area fraction. Exclude objects not fulfilling a given criteria, such as touching the edge etc.
Allows you to create and run powerful scripts for advanced image processing and image analysis. The scripts can be developed by you in a drag-and-drop fashion. Alternatively you can purchase any of the already made script for standard applications or have us or one of our partners develop a custom script for you.
Adds support for Weld measurements.
Grain Size MODULE
Adds support for grain size measurements according to ASTM-112
Adds support for hardness measurements (of single indents) using Vickers or Knoop method
MULTI FOCUS MODULE
Allow you to construct one focused images, out of several images taken on a non-flat surface.
Allow you to construct one large overview image/montage, out of several images taken at various locations.
MOTORIZED STAGE MODULE
Allows you to run the scripts together with motorized stage
