CVB Movie Interactive
Stemmer Imaging has introduced its CVB Movie Interactive user interface, making it easier for users to put together systems for recording sequences and archiving images.
Stemmer Imaging has been offering special algorithms for recording sequences on hard disks or in RAM for some time within its Common Vision Blox (CVB) imaging toolkit. Up to now these two tools, CVB Sequence and CVB Movie, have only been available as libraries. This has meant that, in order to set up a system for recording sequences, it was invariably necessary to program the user interface in addition to configuring the hardware. This software was either written by the user or provided by Stemmer as part of a custom development.
With the new CVB Movie Interactive user interface it is now easier for users to construct systems for capturing and archiving images. This new user-friendly interface features intuitive operating controls similar to those of a video recorder and can be used immediately to record and play image sequences with no need to undertake any additional programming.
The main areas where these systems are used include analysing faults in fast-moving production systems, observing scientific or technical experiments and collecting image material for later analysis. Filming crash tests and their subsequent analysis are certainly the best-known applications in the automotive industry, but there are also numerous areas in medical technology, sport analysis, and many other sectors where recording systems of this kind can be used.
