PATTERNS

The main purpose of this dataset is providing images to test the rendering of standard geometrical patterns by displays, monitors, televisions and projectors.
These patterns facilitate the adjustment of geometrical parameters and helps identify defects of the rendering device.
The broad range of simple geometrical patterns also helps to optimize or identify specific issues in some image processing algorithms. For example, by verifying if the patterns are preserved when applying an image compression algorithm, by testing the effects of different texture filtering and resampling approaches programmed in shaders, or by evaluating the printing quality of a particular device.

This archive contains 8bpp and 16bpp (bit-per-pixel) 3-Channel Red-Green-Blue (RGB) images for the 114 standard and non-standard resolutions previously listed in the COLOR dataset.

For every resolution listed above, the following image variations were generated:

GRAY: (1-Channel Grayscale) These are the reference images containing the geometric patterns as described below. These images are then used to generate the following 3-Channel RGB variations by copying the grayscale layer in one or more color channel: RED, GREEN, BLUE, RED_GREEN, RED_BLUE, GREEN_BLUE, RED_GREEN_BLUE.

For every resolution, color variation and for both 8bpp and 16bpp, the following image types and variations were generated:

  • bars_[ORIENT]_[TYPE]_[BW]_[PHASE]xhalfPI : Constant size bars with the following characteristics: [ORIENT] bars orientation (vertical, horizontal); [TYPE] intensity curve perpendicular to the bar orientation (square = step curve; sin = sinusoidal; triangle = sawtooth wave); [BW] witdh of an entire curve period - the bars period is always a power of 2; [PHASE] the curve phase expressed in number of PI/2 (0-3).
  • bars_[ORIENT]_[TYPE]_progressive : Variable size bars. The smallest bars starts at the image center and increase their size as power of 2.
