Introduction to HALCON: Online Seminar

HALCON is one of the most powerful vision libraries available for standard machine vision, AI and embedded vision applications. Get started with HALCON in our Introduction to HALCON online seminar. The Imaging Source will offer participants test cameras for use during online training sessions to ensure hands-on practical experience with the software.

Please contact us, if you would like to sign up for the first Introduction to HALCON online seminar, and we will then provide you with additional information.

If the software training you are seeking is not currently available, please contact us so that we can gauge interest in training topics and offer our online courses accordingly.
