This paper reports on development of a general purpose image analysis application, tailored for beam profile monitor cameras of RHIC Collider-Accelerator complex. ImageViewer is pure Python application, based on PyQtGraph and SciPy packages. It accepts image stream from a RHIC image manager (optionally from an EPICS areaDetector driver, or from the file system). The standard analysis includes recognition of connected objects; for each object the parameters of a fitted ellipsoid (position, axes and tilt angle) are calculated using 2nd-order image moments, the parameters then corrected using gaussian fit of the object and a surrounding background. Other features supported: saving, image rotation, region of interest, projections, subtraction of a reference image, multi-frame averaging, pixel to millimeter calibration. Playback feature allows for fast browsing and cleanup of the saved images. User add-ons can be added dynamically as included modules. Each camera of the RHIC complex is equipped with a server (grahic-less) version of this application, providing the same analysis and publishing calculated parameters to RHIC Controls Architecture.
