Visual Reliability, LLC is a Tennessee based company that is licensed to provide services with the Iris M Motion Amplification system world-wide.

The Iris M system utilizes 12-bit camera technology and a patented algorithm to detect motion in video footage that is not visible to the naked eye. This invisible motion is digitally amplified to a level easily observable by the human eye which enables a whole new dimension of understanding of equipment behavior. Read more about the system (pictured below) and its technical specifications on the developer's website (RDI Technologies) by clicking here.



Below are a few examples of the output of the Iris M system. The footage on the left is what you will see with the naked eye, on the right is the amplified motion. Make sure you look at the Case Study page for many more examples.

The outputs above are generated in minutes after the system has been configured at the equipment of interest. 

Customers requesting Iris M service work mostly use it for the following:

  1. Communication and education: generating footage such as the examples above is arguably the most efficient way of studying and communicating the effects of concepts such as misalignment, excessive vibration, stiffness, etc. Motion Amplification essentially does a real life Operational Deflection Shape (ODS) in a fraction of the time.
  2. Root cause failure analysis: exaggerating motion (especially that of complex equipment) provides unique insight into the operation of equipment and consequently an ideal opportunity to remove root causes of failure.
  3. Quality control: because of the rapid nature of generating the Motion Amplification videos, the technology could possibly form an integral part of commissioning and quality control activities as it pertains to reliability.

Can your organization afford not to have this level of intelligence about equipment behavior?
