The latest service release of Common Vison Blox includes a variety of innovative new functions for image acquisition and processing, as well as an improved set of display methods. Different functions for plotting lines, circles and ellipses destructively into an image, as well as some algorithms for watershed transformation and wavelet transformation have been implemented. Various distance transforms and gradient-based image segmentations, some new color space conversions and morphology functions are now available to ensure a quick and reliable vision application development.
Service Pack 2 also includes the new VisionPro CVB driver, an acquisition adapter for Cognex VisionPro software, which acquires images from every CVB compliant image acquisition device into Cognex VisionPro.
The GenICam integration has been updated to GenApi 2.3, with CameraSuite now also available for Microsoft Windows and for Linux Ubuntu – both in 32-bit and 64-bit.
The new release is completed by a set of new hardware drivers for latest Silicon Software ME V and DALSA Xcelera PX8 acquisition boards.
Included with delivery of Service Pack 2 are also the recently launched powerful tools:
CVB Flex Inspect: Innovative tool for flexible print & pattern inspection of objects with background deviations
CVB Optical Flow: A powerful and highly optimized tool for the determination of localised motion in live video data
CVB Video Stabilizer: Optimized algorithm for determination and compensation of full image movement in image data
STEMMER IMAGING has been one of the leaders in the machine vision market since 1987. It is one of Europe's largest technology providers in this field. In 1997 STEMMER IMAGING presented Common Vision Blox (CVB), a powerful programming library for fast and reliable development and implementation of vision solutions, which has been deployed successfully throughout the world in more than 40,000 imaging applications in various industries.
