Components of Image Processing System
  • Last Updated : 04 Dec, 2019

Image Processing System is the combination of the different elements involved in the digital image processing. Digital image processing is the processing of an image by means of a digital computer. Digital image processing uses different computer algorithms to perform image processing on the digital images.
It consists of following components:-

  • Image Sensors:
    Image sensors senses the intensity, amplitude, co-ordinates and other features of the images and passes the result to the image processing hardware. It includes the problem domain.
  • Image Processing Hardware:
    Image processing hardware is the dedicated hardware that is used to process the instructions obtained from the image sensors. It passes the result to general purpose computer.
  • Computer:
    Computer used in the image processing system is the general purpose computer that is used by us in our daily life.



  • Image Processing Software:
    Image processing software is the software that includes all the mechanisms and algorithms that are used in image processing system.
  • Mass Storage:
    Mass storage stores the pixels of the images during the processing.
  • Hard Copy Device:
    Once the image is processed then it is stored in the hard copy device. It can be a pen drive or any external ROM device.
  • Image Display:
    It includes the monitor or display screen that displays the processed images.
  • Network:
    Network is the connection of all the above elements of the image processing system.
