    • Gain a deeper understanding of imaging physics, photographic science, human vision and perception, image capture, display technologies and digital image processing
    • Grasp the most important laws of math and physics in relation to imaging systems, taught in an accessible way that doesn’t require college-level math and physics to understand
    • Enrich your technical knowledge and vocabulary so you can contribute more meaningfully to daily operations in your current position, or in an expanded professional role

    Intended Audience:

    • Technologists who need a solid
      grounding, or just a refresher, in the
