Panther Vision and the Digital Imaging Research Centre (DIRC) of Kingston University have become the latest members of the UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA).

Panther Vision provides independent consultancy and bespoke product development services. The company offers expertise in all aspects of computer vision, image analysis and associated areas such as machine intelligence, classifiers and real-time implementations. Its comprehensive range of services include consultancy and advice, product and joint product development, research services, prototyping, and computer vision and image analysis applications, among other services.

The DIRC of Kingston University has joined UKIVA as an academic member. Created to integrate and enhance research excellence in digital imaging across the University, DIRC values a balance between scientific excellence and applied research. Currently, the centre has research groups in intelligent visual surveillance and medical imaging. DIRC is always keen to further expand on its already strong external links with industry and hospitals, and to explore opportunities for knowledge transfer.

UKIVA consultant, Don Braggins, said: 'Panther Vision and DIRC have the special privilege of being the UKIVA's first new members since the association became a Special Interest Group of the PPMA. Dr Sergio Velastin, director of DIRC, is also member of the Executive Committee of The Institution of Engineering and Technology Vision and Imaging Network, along with myself and Mark Williamson (UKIVA chairman and UKIVA board director at the PPMA).'
