European Machine Vision Forum
Vision for Industry 4.0 and beyond

Programme is finalised – Don’t miss to register!

An “Italian Evening” on Wednesday, September 5, where companies, institutes and universities of Northern Italy will present themselves opens the 2018 edition.

The forum offers plenary sessions with carefully selected contributed and invited talks, extended coffee and lunch breaks, an evening session for networking on Thursday, poster presentations as well as hard- and software demonstrations.

The event will end with a panel discussion on Friday, September 7.

The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) has launched this event in 2016 to foster interaction between the machine vision industry and academic research so that innovations can be transferred into practice faster. The aim is to learn from each other, discuss the newest research results relevant for industry as well as problems from applications, learn about emerging application fields, and to discuss research cooperation between industry and academic institutes.

Look for more details and register at www.emva-forum.org

Save The Dates!

2018 is a VISION year!

From 6 – 8 November 2018 the world’s leading trade fair for machine vision opens its doors in Stuttgart, Germany, again. Our whole industry is looking forward to this highlight of the year and so does the EMVA.

EMVA Booth:

The EMVA exhibits at VISION 2018 as leading organizer at the International Machine Vision Standards Booth. Machine vision experts present the most commonly used digital interface standards in the industry in their current versions, EMVA 1288 and new standards activities. They stand by for advice on which standard should be used best for a certain application.
Visit us in hall 1 booth A75.2


EMVA’s International Vision Night:

The EMVA is pleased to organize the popular International Vision Night event on the evening before the trade show starts. In good tradition – it will be the 12th Vision Night – the machine vision community will meet for a pleasant evening in a casual setting.
Save the date – event registration will go online soon.

Case Study

XENICS – White Paper
Carbon Nanotubes Applications And Luminescence-based Imaging

ImageSingle-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) consist of a monolayer of graphene rolled into a cylinder with nanometer diameters and high aspect ratio. SWNTs have attracted a lot of interest in recent years because of their promising applications in a variety of fields, such as medical science or in-vivo bio-imaging, photonics and (opto)electronics.
An important characteristic of SWNTs in all these applications is their intrinsic luminescence in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) wavelength range (1000 – 1600 nm) [LEF]. In nanotube research, imaging methods based on the intrinsic luminescence are commonly used.

At market introduction, the Bonito PRO family consist of two models: the 12.6 Megapixel camera Bonito PRO X-1250 and the 26.2 Megapixel Bonito PRO X-2620. Equipped with four CXP-6 high-speed connections the cameras are capable to transmit 25 Gigabits per second of image data. Read more ›

Out now: Allied Vision’s GigE camera Mako G with Sony IMX273 and IMX287 CMOS sensors

Image Allied Vision expands its Mako G camera family with two new models incorporating second generation Sony ExmorTM CMOS sensors with PregiusTM global shutter pixel technology. The Mako G-158 incorporates the IMX273 sensor, offering a resolution of 1.58 megapixels and a frame rate of 75.2 fps at full resolution. The Mako G-040 is equipped with the IMX287 sensor delivering a resolution of 0.40 megapixels and a frame rate of 286 fps at full resolution. With a smaller Region of Interest, higher frame rates can be achieved..

Emergent Vision Launches New 25GigE High-Speed Area Scan and Line Scan Cameras

Image Both EVT’s BOLD and ACCEL 25GigE devices provide extreme high-speed interfacing with 3.125 Mbytes/s, to maximize the throughput in real-time applications. Until now, this speed was only attainable with 4-channel CoaXPress. The new interface requires only a single fiber cable compared to the Quad CoaXPress interface that required four cables. The use of SFP28 fiber cables plus step-up transceivers provide cable lengths up to ten kilometres. Handling and integration are becoming much easier and cost effective; the 25GigE interface provides superior capability with a great combination of speed and distance. Read more ›
