Camera configuration

Why do I need to perform the camera configuration?

The camera configuration wizard is used to:

  • Set up the aperture and the focus of the camera lens.

  • Make sure that the camera is centered on the Asycube vision calibration plate.

  • Inform the system about the relative orientation of the Asycube with the camera.

  • Measure the working distance for optimal parallax correction.

  • Calibrate the camera using a checkerboard to correct the distortion of the camera lens and work in a more convenient unit (millimeters or inches instead of pixels).

Warning

The camera field of view orientation must match the Asycube orientation. If the camera has a 90°-shift with the correct orientation, calibration will fail with the following error message “wrong orientation detected”. In that case, you will have to remount the camera correctly (see step First startup).

Your system is now mounted and connected to EYE+ Studio. You now need to calibrate your camera in order to obtain a good image quality for the next step.

To access the camera calibration wizard, click on CONFIGURATION, then on Camera and finally on OPEN CALIBRATION WIZARD.

Perform the camera configuration

Follow the wizard steps to perform the camera configuration.

Once it’s done, you should see a similar window to that in Fig. 9.

Now your camera is ready for the next step.

Further information on camera configuration can be found in the chapter Camera configuration wizard.
