This paper describes a real-time video image processing system, suitable for image analysis of stationary and moving images. It consists of a high-quality microscope, a general-purpose personal computer, a commercially available image-processing hardware module plugged into the computer bus, a b/w TV-camera, video monitors and a software package. The structure and the capability of this system are explained. The software is menu-driven and performs real-time image enhancements, real-time mathematical and morphological filters, image segmentation and labelling, real-time identification of moving objects, and real-time analysis of their movements. The program is available in listing form.
