Typical lead time is 3-5 business days. 



The Beta Video Ruler allows precise, non-contact measurements of large and small distances on Films, Plates, Dies, and Prints.  Small features are measured directly on the monitor by dragging the cursor across them. Large distances are measured by marking the starting point with the auto-snap cursor on screen. 

The camera and scale encoder are then moved to the opposite end of object.  The cursor is then moved to within auto-snap distance and the total length is calculated and displayed on screen.   This high-precision length gauge makes it possible to easily and accurately measure distances between marks with no physical edge to engage a caliper or micrometer.

The unique Video Color Separation system adds an extremely useful function when measurements are needed of process or spot color images, particularly when pastel colors or low-contrast images are involved. 

The process yellow image is nearly impossible to see against white paper even under magnification.  Utilizing the adjustable separation system the color of interest is separated from the background and other interfering colors.  It is converted to grayscale and displayed in real-time on the monitor while using the measuring functions.  Offset, flexo, and screenprint registration marks are now easy to see and measure.  Inkjet defects such as scatter, comets, and clumping are now easily imaged and measured.

  • Non-contact optical system can measure printed images, no mechanical edge needed

  •  Portable for use in lab, shop, or in the field, Automatic data collection, image capture, & contrast enhancement

  •  Field of View .345 " x .220" (8.75 mm x 5.5 mm), Resolution 0.001" (0.01 mm)

  •  Available in lengths from 24 - 80 inches (600 mm to 2000 mm)

  •  Image and Data Capture and Export

Analyze and adjust film- and image-setter geometry over distances as large as 80 inches (2000 mm).  With an 80 inch scale you can measure the height, width, and diagonals of a 56.5 inch test square with a resolution of .001 inches.  Calibrate large format plotter and printer output to qualify them for template production.


  • Field of View  .345 " x .220" (8.75mm x 5.5mm)

  • Resolution  0.001" (0.01mm)

  • Variable Illumination

  • Automatic Exposure

  • Image and Data Capture and Export

All Video Rulers offer the same magnification and software functionality.

The accuracy of the ruler is dependent upon the range of the device as shown below:

 Range (Inch/MM) Tolerance (Inch) (MM)
16 inch / 400 mm +/-0.002 +/-0.05
24 inch / 600 mm +/-0.003 +/-0.08
30 inch / 750 mm +/-0.004 +/-0.10
40 inch / 1000 mm +/-0.005 +/-0.12
60 inch / 1500 mm +/-0.006 +/-0.14
80 inch / 2000 mm +/-0.008 +/-0.20
