Video ToolBox Premier: Advanced Software for Inspection

Video ToolBox Premier provides professional tools for measurement, annotation, overlays and comparison -- at an affordable price. It works with live images from a video microscope or large captured images.


Ghost a CAD file (.dxf or .dwg) over the live image of a part with automatic scaling and
manual or computer-assisted alignment.

Video Toolbox™ Premier starts with the features of Video ToolBox Pro software, then adds more tools for inspection and precision measurement. Edge detection assistance instantly snaps your measurement tools to an edge. Adjust the location of the measurement tools with pixel level accuracy at any magnification using the arrow keys on the keyboard or the scroll wheel on the mouse. The magnifier window displays a magnified view at the cursor location so you can see and measure precise details, even when your screen is zoomed out to see an entire high resolution part.

Video Toolbox™ Premier lets you work with 16 megapixel DSLR images as easily as you do with live HD video.

Transparent overlays and side-by-side comparisons are quick and easy. The CAD conversion package (CAD Software plugin sold separately) allows calibrated CAD files to be displayed directly over a live image. Filters allow you to isolate single color components in your image. And the customization feature allows you to remove most functions from the main screen so that users are not distracted by features that they do not need.

Video ToolBox Premier works with most USB2, USB3 and FireWire cameras which use DirectX WDM drivers. The software can import most standard image formats including JPG, BMP,and TIF.
