After the 20 years‘ company jubilee last year another reason to celebrate. Read more ›


Case Study

A New Approach to E-Learning and Shared-Working: 3D Imaging Permits Gesture Control in Virtual Worlds

ImageThe interaction through gesture control in E-learning environments, virtual teams, and in remote conferences, is based on 3D imaging and increases the focus and attention of participants though innovative applications.

Knowledge is more easily conveyed, exchanged, and retained when a high level of natural user interaction is employed. E-learning providers are developing novel interactive applications based on this principle. In addition, teams working in different locations benefit from the improved clarity and perspective in virtual meetings; for example, a user can turn objects 360° by simply pointing at them.

New GigE cameras with integrated JPEG image compression

Image aumer is enhancing the LX series with 2, 4 and 25 megapixel cameras with integrated JPEG image compression and frame rates of up to 140 fps. With the GigE cameras, you can save all down the line: from bandwidth through CPU load to storage space – this simplifies the system design and reduces integration costs. Serial production will start in Q4/2018.
These new models are particularly well suited for applications that require long image sequences, but do not have to transfer and save the complete original images, for example in process monitoring or motion analysis in sports. Read more ›

TECHSPEC® Hard Coated OD 4,0 5 nm Bandpass Filters offer deep blocking and high transmission

Image Edmund Optics introduces new TECHSPEC® Hard Coated OD 4,0 5 nm Bandpass Filters. These versatile filters provide the high transmission and deep rejection necessary to isolate narrow spectral regions for use in a wide variety of applications.
TECHSPEC® Hard Coated OD 4,0 5 nm Bandpass Filters exhibit a narrow 5 nm Full-Width Half Max (FWHM), making them ideal for laser line clean-up applications. They allow for improved signal-to-noise ratio when compared to those achievable with wider band filters and may also be used in elemental or laser line separation, chemical detection, or fluorescence applications.

SONY unveils new polarised category of machine vision camera based on new IMX250MZR sensor

Image XCG-CP510 GS CMOS GigE camera with 4-way polarised light detection delivers 5.1MP, 23 fps images. Simplifies stress inspection, contrast improvement, scratch detection, object detection/removal/ enhancement.
Sony Europe’s Image Sensing Solutions today announced the XCG-CP510, the first in a new category of machine vision cameras.
The camera and category is based on Sony’s newly developed IMX250MZR global shutter CMOS sensor, which uses monochrome quad polarised filters to capture polarised light in four different angles. Read more ›

TELEDYNE DALSA expands its area camera series with the industry’s first 5 Gigabit, GigE Vision models

Image Teledyne DALSA introduces its newest Genie Nano cameras with eight new monochrome and color models built around the industry’s best performing SONY® image sensors. These industry-first 5-Gigabit GigE Vision cameras feature resolutions from 3.2Mpixels to 12Mpixels with more models to follow before the end of the year – including a 5Mpixel Polarized model.

Engineered for imaging applications that require high-speed data transfer, these new Nano models are an easy replacement for cameras built into current vision systems that rely on the existing GigE vision interface standard. These new Genie Nano models feature the brand new 5GBASE-T link speed. Read more ›

New Industrial Lenses ZEISS Dimension for C-Mount Cameras

Image ZEISS is expanding its range of industrial lenses with its new ZEISS Dimension lens family, which was specially designed for C-Mount industrial cameras. “Sensors for image processing systems are getting bigger all the time, and they have a higher resolution and pixel density,” says Michael Pollmann from ZEISS. “The six focal lengths between 8 and 50 millimeters were designed for cameras with a sensor size of up to 4/3 inches and generate pixel sizes of two micrometers.” This means greater efficiency for customers: the lenses enable precise, fast measurements, which help shorten process times.
