The plasma edge interaction in FTU tokamak is monitored by wide angle videocameras. Data are acquired as movies or single frames at a rate of 50 frames/s. The images show interesting features of the plasma such as the presence of Marfes or runaways and give useful information on the status of large parts of the vacuum vessel and toroidal limiter. Due to the large number of data available visual inspection of the movies is often insufficient to correlate the images to the experimental findings. This article illustrates a number of applications developed in order to correlate the images with plasma signals and to search the image database for specific features relevant to the discharge. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
