The development module includes NI Vision for LabVIEW—a library of over 400 functions for image processing and machine vision and NI Vision Assistant—an interactive environment for quick prototyping of vision applications without programming. The development module also includes NI Vision Acquisition—software with support for thousands of cameras including IEEE 1394 and GigE Vision cameras. 1 NI Vision NI Vision is the image processing toolkit, or library, that adds high-level machine vision and image processing to the LabVIEW environment.

For example, the image “students” (Fig. 2) has grayscales covering the entire available range, as seen in the histogram accompanying the image. ” This is unfortunate, since we have already commented that “students” might benefit from a histogram manipulation that would redistribute the gray level densities. Such a transformation would need to nonlinearly reallocate the image’s gray level values. Such nonlinear point operations are described next. 20) where the function h is nonlinear. Obviously, this encompasses a wide range of possibilities.
