Fri, 05/21/2010 - 8:31am
Microscan announced the availability of Visionscape 4.1. This completely scalable, single-software package can be used on machine vision boards, GigE solutions, and smart cameras. The software’s machine vision toolset includes blob analysis, OCR, OCV, barcode, vector and edge algorithms, plus the industry leading pattern-matching tool, Intellifind. Visionscape 4.1 brings additional tools such as color matching and color segmentation. Color matching can be used in high speed applications such as sorting parts, and color segmentation enables other tools to be applied in a specific color plane. The upgrade also includes flexibility in creating custom user interfaces via VB.net and C#. Additionally, the expanded platform support allows users to choose from a wide range of third party GigE cameras. Its graphical programming environment for rapid development of sophisticated machine vision applications does not require software coding skills. Machine vision jobs developed for a smart camera platform can directly be transferred to a PC-based solution without reprogramming.
