This part of ISO 14648 specifies the characteristics of a software test target that is electronically generated, to be
used in COM recorder systems that can accept electronic forms. The components have been designed to check or
test certain capabilities of the COM recorder system in order to enable image quality to be assessed and
maintained. The recording method (i.e. laser scanner, cathode ray tube, light emitting diode, etc.) is not relevant in
establishing the software test target components.
