Matrox 4Sight GP industrial computer
9 May 2012
Matrox Imaging has released the Matrox 4Sight GP, the fifth generation of its 4Sight family of industrial computers for machine vision and medical imaging applications.
Powered by an embedded third generation Intel Core processor, the Matrox 4Sight GP offers desktop-level performance, including real-time high-definition H.264 encoding offload, in a small rugged enclosure. The platform accommodates full-height, half-length PCIe boards, which lets developers insert standard add-in cards for analogue, Camera Link, CoaXPress, DVI, or SDI video capture. Matrox 4Sight GP integrates Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 interfaces, which provide native support for capturing from GigE Vision cameras and upcoming USB3 Vision cameras.
Matrox 4Sight GP comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7, which provides the same power, familiarity, and reliability as Windows 7. Applications are created using standard Microsoft development tools and the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL), a comprehensive collection of tools for developing machine vision and medical imaging applications. MIL features programming functions for image capture, processing, analysis, annotation, display, and archiving.
