The use of digital image processing techniques for electronic speckle pattern interferometry is discussed. A digital TV-image processing system with a large frame memory allows us to perform precise and flexible operations such as subtraction, summation, and level slicing. Digital image processing techniques make it easy compared with analog techniques to generate high contrast fringes. Some experimental verifications are presented in the cases of surface displacement and vibration amplitude measurements.
