EMVA Spotlight Series

Expert insights on topics from the inner track of Vision Tech

Machine vision as a vertical industry has numerous facets and constantly adapts technological innovation. The EMVA with its brandnew Spotlight Series has set up an interactive webinar format highlighting one specific aspect in our industry in each of the events. Each Spotlight event will include a keynote talk, one or several impulse talks, as well as ample time for discussion and exchange with the speakers.

Before and after each of the one-hour meetings, the participants are invited to meet their peers for networking by means of pre-scheduled 1:1 video meetings.

Starting in September 2021 with the kick-off event featuring Volkswagen; further spotlights will be put once a month on how AI and Embedded Vision influence Machine Vision Technology; what the trends are everyone needs to be aware of in our industry; the important role of standards in the penetration of existing and new markets, and machine vision technology applied at Continental.

Vision 2021  |  5 – 7 Oct. in Stuttgart, Germany

Automatic photo portal for the documentation of intralogistics processes

Due to digitalisation in Industry 4.0, internal logistics is subject to constant change. Internal traceability, i.e. the tracking of goods in the warehouse or production facility, is increasingly playing a key role. Manufacturers and consumers are placing more and more emphasis on the safety and quality of products. Costly and image-damaging complaints must therefore be avoided. Automation systems can help to optimise goods control here and at the same time facilitate and accelerate the work of the operators – saving time and costs.  Read more ›

New flexible and compact autofocus-zoom camera with 4K resolution

The Harrier 18x AF-Zoom HDMI 4K Camera is a compact autofocus-zoom camera with real-time 4K video output and 18x optical zoom. Fitted with a 8.4MP Sony CMOS sensor, the camera provides HDMI video at a maximum of 3840x2160p 30/25 fps and simultaneous CVBS analog output.

The camera also offers sophisticated camera features including Real-time True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), Day & Night mode – Infrared Cut filter Removal (ICR), Digital Noise Reduction (2D + 3D DNR) and Digital Image Stabilization. Read more › 


Infrared Camera with Microscope Optics from AT: Cost-effective Alternative to Cooled Infrared Cameras

High-precision result images, micro-precise detection options, detailed analysis capability: Specially developed for use in non-destructive testing, the infrared camera with microscope optics from AT – Automation Technology offers numerous advantages when it comes to inspecting the smallest components. Probably the most popular application for the camera is the inspection of electronic components. Since these are often so tiny that normal infrared cameras reach their limits in terms of resolution, the infrared camera with microscope optics from AT is the optimal solution for reliably checking the functionality of the mini object to be inspected and thus for quality control.

Teledyne E2V
The industry’s smallest 2MP & 1.5MP CMOS sensors, featuring a low-noise global shutter pixel

Teledyne e2v has introduced its Topaz series of industrial CMOS sensors with new 2MP and 1.5MP resolution devices. These new 1920 x 1080 and 1920 x 800-pixel format sensors use state-of-the-art low noise, global-shutter pixel technology to offer powerful solutions and enable compact mobile designs for many applications.

Housed in a tiny 4.45 mm wide Chip Scale Package (CSP), the Topaz sensors have an optical array centre which precisely matches the mechanical centre of the package, allowing for a slim camera design.

Sony to Release Two Types of Stacked Event-Based Vision Sensors with the Industry’s Smallest*1 4.86μm Pixel Size for Detecting Subject Changes Only

Sony Semiconductor Solutions  announced the upcoming release of two types of stacked event-based vision sensors. These sensors designed for industrial equipment are capable of detecting only subject changes, and achieve the industry’s smallest*1 pixel size of 4.86μm.

These two sensors were made possible through a collaboration between Sony and Prophesee, by combining Sony’s CMOS image sensor technology with Prophesee’s unique event-based vision sensing technology. Read more ›

Global Shutter with 127 Megapixel – shr661: the fat boy in machine vision

More resolution! More image quality!
With high-resolution machine vision systems, the smallest object structures are classified in the highest quality. However, all sensors available on the market with resolutions with 100 megapixel and above only use a rolling shutter.

The new shr661 CMOS camera from SVS-Vistek can confidently be called a milestone in machine vision, because it offers an enormous resolution of 127 megapixels and, despite this extremely high resolution, works with a global shutter. It thus enables new applications in numerous fields of use. Read more ›
