The Bayer tab allows you to configure Bayer decoding settings. If your camera outputs a Bayer image, you can use this tab to specify the Bayer settings so the resulting image returned is a color image. The Bayer tab is only available for monochrome digital area scan cameras.
Complete the following steps to perform Bayer decoding on an acquired image:
- Select the Perform Bayer Decoding check box. If it is checked, the following settings will be used to convert the Bayer image acquired to a color image.
- Use the radio buttons to select the correct Pattern for your image. The four possible variations of the Bayer encoding pattern are available.
- To select appropriate Red, Green, and Blue gains, acquire an image of a white background, draw a rectangle around the area that is most white, and then click Auto Balance.
- Repeat Steps 2-3 until the image appears correctly.
