In previous newsletters, we have discussed the need to completely separate application software and hardware using so-called APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). For image processing purposes, under Windows, this API is called 'DirectX' / 'DirectShow'. Many readers of this newsletter have asked for off-the-shelve application software which makes use of DirectX. Such a tool is the new 'MontiVision Image Analyser'. It allows the interactive measurement of basic geometrical features in image objects.
As always, should you wish to speak to us about this or any other topic related to machine vision, please call us or email us.
