The market for print image inspection systems is in flux. While the previous division was essentially based on low-cost observation systems and high-priced automatic inspection systems, this differentiation has become increasingly blurred in recent years. Even simple web inspection systems now offer rudimentary automatic inspections. But despite all the technical advancements in these devices, they cannot match the performance of classic inspection systems. The low-cost matrix cameras installed set narrow limits on the possible inspection performance. Even today, there is no way around the much more complex line-scan camera systems for a complete print image inspection. A look at the properties of the respective systems can explain why this is the case.
