Vision library or vision-specific IDE: which is right for you?

This article is brought to you by: 

Commercial machine vision software is currently classified along two lines: the conventional vision library and the vision-specific integrated development environment (IDE). Determining which software is right for your vision project depends upon a variety of factors: ease-of-use, productivity, flexibility, performance, completeness, and maintenance. This white paper uses these factors to contrast the two software development approaches and clearly establish the merits and drawbacks of each. The discussion assumes that the vision tools available in both types of software are similar—if not identical—and does not explore possible discrepancies with these tools. Also, the discussion ignores the hardware platform that the vision applications run on as to not bias one over the other.

Is CXP right for you?

This article is brought to you by: 

The emergence of the CoaXPress (CXP) standard gives developers of imaging and vision applications a new camera interface with which to work. Determining if the standard is the right choice for your next project requires careful consideration of both CXP’s features and your application requirements. This white paper introduces you to CoaXPress, compares it to established standards like Camera Link and GigE Vision, describes the applications for which it is best suited, and discusses how this standard may likely evolve.
