In this paper we present an overview of the Real-time Imaging effort at the Center of Interfacial Engineering. Our approach to Real-time imaging in the context of interfacial engineering is presented first. We distinguish visualization and analysis of interfacial processes and products. Novel uses for Real-time Imaging are mentioned, including real-time analysis of images from the newest Near-field microscopes. The potentials of real- time image analysis applied to the understanding of process evolution is discussed next, with an example pertaining to the coating industry. Two examples of current applications of Real- time image processing are presented next: The first is a detailed discussion of the use of normalized cross-correlation to stabilize the video stream from a camera subject to vibration. A procedure for maximizing the precision of the image processing operations within the fixed 8-bit hardware architecture is presented. The second example pertains to the growth of thin films via Chemical Beam Epitaxy and the analysis of RHEED patterns, which aims at optimizing the growth process.
