Complete Iris M system

RDI’s patented technology measures deflection, displacement, movement and vibration not visible to the human eye. We utilize video camera technology in conjunction with our software and processing algorithms to extract meaningful data. This technology turns every pixel in the camera’s view into a sensor capable of measuring vibration or motion with high levels of accuracy.

The results lend themselves to a visualization of the movement. We can measure and quantify any structural assets that a camera can see. Motion Amplification® is a proprietary video processing algorithm that detects subtle movement then converts that movement to a level visible to the naked eye which enhances the understanding of the components and interrelationships creating the motion.




Iris M™ enables a dramatic visualization of the movement. Motion Amplification® is a proprietary video processing technique that detects subtle displacement and then converts that movement to a level visible with the naked eye.



Iris M™ enhances the understanding of the components and interrelationships creating the movement and provides a communication tool for technical and non-technical resources.



Iris M™ measures and quantifies mechanical or structural assets that a camera can see with the same accuracy as a contacting displacement sensor.




Iris M™ allows you to filter your data and visualize movement at specific frequencies to find the real source of a problem and position your team to fix it.

Displacement and Frequency Measurement

This software module allows you to draw regions of interest and return a time waveform and spectrum in both the horizontal and vertical directions from those locations. Also included are new features in the acquisition software that assist in making measurements designed for displacement.

Motion Explorer for the Iris M

This application allows you to manage all of your Motion Amplification® data from one place. You will now be able to preview your recordings before opening them, organize your data in a hierarchical structure, and associated files such as PDFs and MP4s with your recordings. Other features include:

  • Region-Based Motion Amplification® – Users can overlay shapes to define any region where the Motion Amplification® software has been applied.
  • Image Thresholds – Users can choose what portion of the camera’s available dynamic range is displayed on the screen and exported into the MP4.
  • Rotate Image – Users can rotate the collected recordings by 90°, 180°, and 270° and the acquisition software shows a live preview of the rotated view
  • Multiple Distance Measurements – Users can drop pins on multiple locations and enter associated distances to be retrieved in the Motion Amplification® software for analysis of multiple locations

Motion Studio for the Iris M System

The new Motion Studio Update gives you the ability to create more powerful videos with RDI’s Motion Amplification® software. Add spectra and waveforms to your videos, show multiple views from a single screen, and edit your videos straight from video editor screen.  Motion Studio gives you all the tools for your reports.

Frequency Based Filtering for the Iris M

The Iris M™, allows users to isolate individual frequencies in RDI’s Motion Amplification® software. Combinations of filters can be applied to isolate multiple frequencies. Filtering is performed graphically by the user through a color-coded spectrum.  The spectrum represents the displacement for a region of interest in the video data.  Simply drag the cursor representing a filter’s cutoff frequency on the spectrum to apply the filters to any frequency.

Additional Features Include:

  • Orbit Plots – Displays displacements at a location in the data on an X-Y plot.
  • Simpler ROI drawing – Drawing an ROI with the mouse has been updated to make displacement measurements more intuitive.
  • Record data sets based on time instead of the number of frames.
  • Addition of CPM units.
  • Ability to export time waveforms to .csv files.
