Software partner programme set up by Allied Vision Technologies
Allied Vision Technologies (AVT) has launched the AVT Certified Vision Software Partner Program. This cooperative effort connects the camera manufacturer with selected image processing software providers to optimise the compatibility of AVT cameras and SDKs with their software solutions.
'Allied Vision Technologies works in close cooperation with its certified partners to optimise the use of AVT cameras with their image processing solutions,' explained Jens Hashagen, product manager, software at Allied Vision Technologies. 'On the one hand, intelligent camera functions (AVT smart features) are made accessible in an easy-to-use manner; on the other, the use of AVT software components, such as drivers or ActiveX controls, makes an expanded range of applications possible for these cameras – such as FireWire S800 support with Windows Vista.'
The programme allows for the exchange of AVT camera models and software licenses, regular information exchanges regarding firmware and software updates and close cooperation in development and customer support. Furthermore, software interfaces developed by AVT for partner applications will also be made available on the AVT product CD and website.
Ten of the leading providers of imaging software have joined the initiative and became AVT Certified Vision Software Partners: A&B Software, Cognex, Euresys, The MathWorks, Matrox, MVTec, National Instruments, Norpix, Stemmer Imaging, and Tordivel are already on board. Further partners should be added shortly.
