It has long been an accepted fact that the thermal image is monochrome, displayed in grayscale, and that only hot spots glow bright white. For a more visual and natural perception of the image from the thermal imager, the ASTROHN Technology Ltd engineers have developed software for coloring the resulting image in a variety of palettes or pseudo colors. Pseudo color imaging is another method of increasing the detectability of depicted objects by a human observer.

The “Pseudocolor” option, implemented in the Iridium II thermal imaging module, is designed to convert a monochrome image to color. This option assigns colors to pixels in a grayscale or black and white image. Assignment of certain colors to pixels occurs as a result of quantization by brightness levels. Since some areas in a monochrome image can be perceived by human vision as areas of constant brightness, the option is quite useful since it breaks down these areas into more perceptible colors. Changing the “Pseudocolor” parameters helps achieve a clear selection of different areas of constant brightness.

The use of color in image processing is due to two main reasons. Firstly, color is the important feature that often makes it easier to recognize and highlight an object in an image. Secondly, a person is able to distinguish between thousands of different shades of color, and only about two dozen shades of gray. The second circumstance is especially important for visual (i.e., performed directly by a person) image analysis. Color is a person’s view of the visible part of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. Recognition of color by a person depends on the ambient light reflecting the light of the object, on the eyes and brain of the observer. Light entering the eye is converted into signals of neurons located in the retina of the eye, and is transmitted through the optical nerve to the brain.

Thus, the color of a computer image can display hidden and most unexpected, at first glance, properties of its carrier.

The Pseudocolor option developed by ASTROHN Technology Ltd engineers can be successfully used by firefighters and other services of the Ministry of Emergencies, surveillance and control services, and is also highly useful in medicine, agriculture, etc.
