The two presenters have vast experience in providing technology to this market, and demonstrate the knowledge and expertise in this webcast with reference to real-world applications and examples.

Connectivity in Vision

4 April 2013

This webcast brings vision experts up to date with the latest developments in connectivity and interface standards. The panel of experts will explain in detail four of the latest standards, and help you make a choice as to which interface is the most appropriate for your application.

The webcast comprises four presentations:

  • Connectivity with USB 3.0 – Paul Kozik, Point Grey
  • GigE Vision over 10 GigE – Geoff Roddick, Pleora Technologies
  • The CoaXPress standard – Chris Beynon, Active Silicon
  • Camera Link HS – Martin Schwarzbauer, PCO


Imaging Technology in Traffic and Transport

7 December 2012

This webcast provides an insight into the application of vision technology in the field of traffic and transport. It features a look at appropriate cameras and the characteristics they need to display, as well as some real-life examples from an ITS integrator.

Cameras in ITS Enzio Schneider, Product Line Manager ITS with Basler
Cameras are the eyes of today’s traffic systems, in enforcement, monitoring, and tolling applications. Two camera technologies are used in such systems: industrial cameras and network cameras. While industrial cameras have been developed for machine vision applications such as process control and the inspection of goods, network cameras are mainly used in video surveillance systems. Due to their different backgrounds, both technologies have features specific to their fields of application. Designers of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) face multiple requirements. Sometimes those can be fully met by industrial cameras; in other cases, network camera technology is the better choice. See the following sections for an insight into what functionalities are useful for what ITS applications, and what features each of the two camera technologies offers.

Automated license plate recognition Christopher McKissick, NDI Recognition Systems, Director of Sales, U.S. Public Safety Vertical
Using real-life examples, this presentation explores the different types of automated license plate recognition solutions available. Looking at static/fixed, mobile and covert mobile applications, the presentation will include high profile examples of solutions in London and also a focus on Manchester’s ‘Ring of Steel’.

High-Speed Imaging

15 August 2012

This webcast, sponsored by Pleora Technologies and Phantom, provides vision engineers, OEMs and system integrators with expert advice on what to consider when solving a high-speed imaging problem. Andrew Bridges of Photron explores 'How to Choose a High-Speed Camera', Jonathan Ludlow of Microscan Systems discusses 'Smart Lights for High-Speed Machine Vision', and John Phillips of Pleora Technologies concludes with a look at 'High-Speed Imaging and GigE Vision Over 10GigE'.

Imaging in the life sciences

10 April 2012

This webcast, sponsored by PCO and Edmund Optics, explores the use of imaging technology within the life sciences. First, Darren Bessette of Lumenera discusses the considerations one should bear in mind when choosing a camera for use in these types of applications, before Dr Gerhard Holst of PCO explores scientific CMOS technology in more depth. Finally, Professor James Rice of University College Dublin will describe how he is using imaging technology in a specific research project covering infrared nanoscopy and nanoimaging.
