EMVA Business Conference 2019
Machine Vision in Denmark

Subtitled ‘The Kingdom of Denmark and the machine vision market there”, Henrik Ilsby, CCO at SVS-Vistek, will give a brief introduction to Denmark: history, uniqueness, business environment/structure and anecdotes. The talk gives deeper insights to the various companies and sectors which are involved in machine vision and imaging related activities.

Henrik Ilsby, born 1958 in Copenhagen, graduated 1983 from Copenhagen Technical University with a B.Sc degree in Manufacturing Engineering and Electronics. He spent 10 years from 1983 in program management and sales with the Danish company Nea-Lindberg, (Video Displays and IR camera technology).

Henrik joined JAI A/S in 1994 as Director of Sales for the Camera business unit. In 1997 he was appointed to executive management in JAI and later Senior Vice President leading the international camera business unit.

From 2010-2012 he acted as CEO for CST A/S Copenhagen Sensor Technology, a company specializing in electro-optical solutions for Defense and Homeland Security markets.

In January 2013, Henrik joined the executive board of SVS VISTEK as Chief Commercial Officer, leading the worldwide sales.

The 17th edition of the EMVA Business Conference will take place 16-18 May 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Join in now at



European Machine Vision Forum – Call for Papers
Photonics and Machine Vision: Going Deep into Integration

Researchers and developers from machine vision, computer vision, machine learning, applied optics and photonics meet at the forum to exchange their newest ideas how the deep integration of photonic elements, imaging sensors, computing platforms and machine learning lead to much more capable, smaller, cheaper and less energy consuming vision systems.

Taking place 5-6 September 2019 at Palais de la Bourse, Lyon, France, the forum offers several opportunities to transfer our slogan ‘Where Research Meets Industry‘ into practice.

Don’t miss it – registration and all details on how to play an active role are to be found at!

New 3-CMOS prism based color line scan camera with 10 GigE Vision interface

Image JAI introduces a new industrial color line scan camera in the Sweep+ Series. The Sweep+ SW-4000T-10GE is a prism-based color line scan camera equipped with 3 CMOS sensors (each with 4096 pixels) and a super-fast 10GBASE-T GigE Vision Interface including backwards compatibility to N-BASE-T and 1000BASE-T GigE Vision interfaces.
The combination of 3-CMOS prism color line scan technology with a 10GBASE-T (10Gbit/s) interface, not only makes this camera the world’s first product of its kind, but also the world’s fastest prism-based RGB color line scan camera. Read more ›

One-for-all Machine Vision Lens Series for 1.1”-Sensors and 2.5 µm Pixels

Image The technical advancement of image sensors for Machine Vision brings higher spatial resolution resulting in larger sensors and smaller pixels. This development created big challenges for vision system designers as it was difficult to find the right lenses for such sensors: High resolution power, strong light transmission, distortion-less imaging, short minimum object distance (MOD), a small Chief Ray Angle (CRA), and all this from the center to the edges of the large image circle – these were just the optical requirements. Equally important remain the compact build of the lenses and their robustness against shocks and vibrations. Read more ›

New Gocator® 3D Smart Sensor for scanning glass and other specular surfaces

Image LMI Technologies is pleased to announce the launch of the Gocator® 2512 laser line profile sensor, a dedicated high-performance 3D machine vision solution for scanning glass and other specular surfaces.
Gocator® 2512 has the unique advantage of being able to scan specular and diffuse surfaces simultaneously. For example, the sensor can generate a precision 3D scan of a cell phone’s cover glass in a surrounding metal or plastic frame, inspecting critical assembly tolerances such as flushness, gap and offset.

The sensor leverages specialized laser projection technology that can handle a wider range of surface angles, material types, and surface colors. Competing laser profilers use a collimated laser beam that does not offer the same target angle performance. Read more ›
