Test Cards

Below is the current catalogue of standard IMOGen test cards. Others may possibly be made available by request, or as required. Also, variations or personalisations of associated idents can sometimes be accommodated.

Only actual domestic television screenshots of IMOGen generated output have been used, rather than posting the cleaner, but rather sterile, digital original source images. Please bear in mind that deficiencies in both the television sets, and the point'n'shoot digital camera used to take the photographs, will be apparent in the resulting pictures.

Test Card F (70's Slide Version)

Test Card F on a Beovision MX6000

A facsimile of an early slide version of test card F, complete with the original patchy illumination, slight mis-registration and super-imposed electronic colour bar strip at the top. Not as technically good as the other versions here, but bags of good old authentic nostalgia!
