InHelp Inspection Assist Software System
(Inspection Screen, Image Management Screen, and Report Generation)

Olympus Corporation (Representative Director and President: Hiroyuki Sasa) announces the global launch on November 1, 2012 of the InHelp software system that assists remote visual inspections with industrial videoscopes. Remote visual inspection enables observation of areas that have no direct visual access such as aircraft engines and pipes in plant facilities.
InHelp streamlines the entire industrial videoscope inspection process of (1) On-site Inspection, (2) Image Management, and (3) Inspection Report Generation for improved work efficiency.

InHelp is the first Olympus inspection assist software system for industrial videoscope inspections. In such as aviation and power generation industries, large volumes of inspection are often required. InHelp improves work efficiency and simplifies inspections by organizing stored images on the videoscope and generating detailed inspection reports.
