Public Courses

Harvest Imaging is teaching several public courses that are organized by third parties. In general, these courses are accessible to everyone. The primary targeted audience are people (engineers, managers, students) that want to know more about certain aspects of digital imaging.

The following courses are planned on the short term :

1) 5-day course focusing on image sensors (organized by CEI Europe www.cei.se)
The major objective of this course is to make the participants familiar and experienced with solid-state imaging and the relevant related topics. It will give an in-depth view of the possibilities and limitations of the image capturing technology of today and tomorrow. Practical sessions will form a strong backbone of the course, complemented by several tutorial lectures.

2) 4-day course focusing on camera systems (organized by CEI Europe www.cei.se)
This course is developed to provide theoretical familiarity and hands-on experience with digital cameras and associated topics with focus on the overall system aspects. The complete path will be discussed from "photons in" to "digital numbers out". The effect of light sources, optics, imagers, defects, and data processing will be covered.

3) 2-day course focusing on CMOS image sensors (organized by FSRM www.fsrm.ch and FRAMOS www.framos.eu)
CMOS image sensors play a crucial role in today’s solid-state cameras. This course deals with the working principles, technology and applications of CMOS image sensors. A comparison between the "good old" CCDs and the "challenging" CMOS imagers will be part of the course as well.

4) 2-day advanced course focusing on solid-state imaging technology (organized by CEI Europe www.cei.se)
This brand new course is intended for the more-experienced imaging experts and deals with the most recent developments on image sensors. In principle, this course can be seen as a follow-on for the 5-days course on image sensors. The creation of this course is inspired by the many comments founds on the feedback forms of the people who participated in the 5-day course.

5) 1-day course focusing on the colour processing pipeline (organized by SPIE www.spie.org, direct course link)
This course deals with the long and complex path along which the digital data needs to pass to make beautiful images out of the raw data delivered by the sensor. Not only the sensor short comings need to be corrected, also lens corrections and colour-related issues are subjects that will be studied in this course.

6) 2-day course focusing on hands-on evaluation and measurements of existing image sensors and cameras (organized by CEI Europe www.cei.se)
This training is the very first one of its kind and offers the participants the opportunity to work in the classroom with existing cameras and do the evaluation of the devices themselves. Laptops, cameras, lightsources, power supplies, test charts and other equipment needed will be provided. The amount of participants in the class room is limited to allow an optimal interaction between trainer and trainees.
