Embedded VISION Europe 2017
EMVA presents top-notch conference speaker

The first Embedded VISION Europe targets developers and users of embedded (vision) systems from all industries. And the conference will be supplemented by an exhibition where all participating companies are invited to show their embedded vision expertise through products and applications.

Several top-notch speakers already confirmed their participation at Embedded VISION Europe 2017, the only conference in Europe having the focus exclusively on this disruptive technology.

Amongst the conference speakers one may find international well known names like David Moloney from Intel Corporation, Giles Peckham from Xilinx, the CEO of Awaiba Martin Wäny or Harris Gasparakis representing AMD – just to mention examples.
All confirmed speaker, their bios and more may be found at www.embedded-vision-emva.org.

Stay informed and get all speaker and program announcements first hand at www.emva.org or follow #embeddedVISIONeurope


EMVA1288 Standard:
EMVA starts online educational initiative

Our newest online educational initiative regarding the 1288 standard for camera characterization will be composed by two elements.

As a first step short video clips will be broadcasted weekly within the next four weeks, each clip explaining one highlight of the new release 3.1 of the standard.

Following a free one hour interactive webinar is offered on Tuesday, September 12, 2017:
How to compare cameras with the new EMVA 1288 standard, Release 3.1“.
Participants may ask questions during the webinar and afterwards by e-mail.
Please Register Now

In addition to the online initiative a new series of training courses given in English and German language are prepared in cooperation with two of our EMVA members. Find the details at:

Available now: The first Sony Pregius CMOS cameras with a mere 1 µs exposure time

Image Baumer offers the first CMOS cameras with an exposure time down to 1 µs in the mainstream segment of digital industrial cameras. The CX models including the second generation of Sony Pregius sensors feature exposure times ranging from 1 µs to 60 s. Available with up to 12 megapixel resolution, they are ideal in tasks at high light intensity such as laser welding and will minimize blur in high-speed applications like pick and place. Having extended the application possibilities of CMOS cameras, Baumer has closed a gap where previously CCD sensors were required. Samples are available now; production starts in the third quarter of 2017. Read more ›

Sony launches highly sensitive 4/3″ CMOS sensor for 4K surveillance

Image The new IMX294 image sensor from world market leader SONY is designed to meet the needs of the security segment. The new flagship model size 4/3″ is optimized to be used in security cameras and industrial applications. The back-illuminated CMOS Starvis sensor achieves a 4K resolution with 10.7 megapixels at a high frame rate of 120 fps. Available from the global imaging specialist FRAMOS, IMX294 has an excellent SNR1s* value and enables HDR shots with minimal movement artifacts thanks to the Quad Bayer pixel structure. Read more ›

MIKROTRON introduces first High-Speed Machine
Vision Camera with Fiber Interface

Image Mikrotron introduces the first high-speed machine vision camera with a fully integrated fiber solution. The fanless 3 megapixel camera EoSens 3FIBER is capable of transmitting data up to a distance of 300 meters and runs up to 566 frames per second which are transmitted through the fiber interface. Based on a full resolution of 1,696 x 1,710 pixels the frame can be reduced continuously and allows frame rates up to 225,000 at smaller ROIs. The compact and robust MTP/MPO connector ensures that the camera does not disconnect even during fast and sudden movements. The thinness of each individual fiber allows bundling all fibers into one cable that transmits the entire data. Read more ›

Quick 20MP camera with Sony IMX183

Image The new SVS-Vistek exo183CCL has been in series production for one month now. With 20 megapixels and a rolling shutter, the camera delivers 12 fps at full resolution in 8-bit mode. This makes it the quickest Camera Link model fitted with the Sony
IMX183 sensor on the market. This high speed is achieved by means of a new (uncompressed) data transmission method (1×3) from the sensor to the computer via the Camera Link interface. This mode provides additional speed of up to 50% compared with previous models and continues to support long cables of a length of more than 10m. Read more ›
