Matrox Imaging and Framos launch websites

Share this on social media:

Matrox Imaging and Framos have both launched new websites, Matrox's Vision Academy website and Framos's web store.

With the aim of easier navigation, the new Matrox Vision Academy website offers the option of keyword-based searching, as well as a simplified menu-driven interface that includes convenient access to new video content. Moreover, an ever-expanding series of courses provide clear, sequential training on specific topics.

Matrox Vision Academy delivers a comprehensive library of on-demand instructional material on how to use and deploy Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) and Matrox Design Assistant vision software. Designed to deconstruct complex topics into micro-learning modules, Matrox Vision Academy facilitates self-directed, just-in-time learning for registered software users.

Matrox Vision Academy delivers a growing series of courses on its software platforms; these courses consist of a number of videos on a particular topic that unfold in a logical, sequential manner. Geared towards providing introductions to particular broad topics, or progressive insight on how to use certain tools—like Blob Analysis, Pattern Matching, or SureDotOCR®, for example—these courses aim to help users obtain a deeper understanding on the given topic.

The inclusion of an open search bar makes keyword searching simple and time-effective, offering targeted results with a single click. The library of Matrox Vision Academy videos is constantly being expanded, making targeted keyword searching a boon for users seeking information on specific subjects, tools, or concepts.

The new Matrox Vision Academy website classifies all content by software title, namely, MIL or Matrox Design Assistant. This visual selector is conveniently color-coded to facilitate navigation. Similarly, a blue banner flags recent video additions for easy identification.

“Since our inception in April 2017, we have sought out feedback from users, who bring valuable hands-on experience with the interface—and paired it with the expertise of our own development and support staff—to deliver a truly pleasant and productive online learning platform,” notes David Zerkler, lead instructional designer, Matrox Imaging. “We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished and excited about where we’re going next.”

Matrox Vision Academy is available to customers with MIL or Matrox Design Assistant maintenance subscriptions, as well as those evaluating either software.

Framos web store

Select Intel® and Sony products can now be ordered directly from the new FRAMOS web store. Quick access to directly available vision technology is offered by this global vision partner. The new web store can be accessed at shop.framos.com with plans to extend it further with product lines targeting Embedded Vision applications in the future.

As a global expert in imaging technologies, FRAMOS wants to make it easy for its customers to develop innovative vision systems. The online store will initially offer 3D cameras from the Intel® RealSense line as well as Sony Spresense™ Developer Boards. Further lines and products for Embedded Vision applications are planed in the near future.

"The new web store is aimed at developers who need direct access to the latest technologies in order to start their product development quickly. Our goal is to make it easy for them to develop vision products and let their machines see." says Andreas Franz, owner and CEO of FRAMOS. "In addition to the web store, we also support to our customers as a consultant, development partner and technical support engineer, answering all questions related to imaging throughout the product’s complete life cycle, while adding value at every step.”

To help with the development of state-of-the-art imaging and embedded vision systems, FRAMOS works with a strong network of suppliers and partners. The company has been a certified Sony partner for more than 30 years and collaborates with Intel® for their RealSense™ technology.

The Intel® RealSense™ Technology provides the necessary data so that machines can make situational decisions while enabling these devices to interact with their environment. The camera’s stereo depth sensing gives machines a more realistic view of the world so that they can navigate and map their environment – enabling “smart” devices. For drones, robots, VR, automotive, surveillance and 3D applications, Intel® RealSense™ products make a perfect choice for taking the fast lane to embedded 3D vision.

The Sony Spresense™ boards enable developers to easily design and build Embedded Vision solutions. These high-quality boards come equipped with a great development environment allowing developers to create IoT applications with a very short time to market.
