MIL 10 Processing Pack 2 for Windows
Matrox Imaging has announced a major update to its core vision software product, Matrox Imaging Library (MIL). MIL 10 Processing Pack 2 for Windows will give users a variety of new tools to simplify and accelerate application development including Matrox SureDotOCR, a unique dot-matrix OCR reader, and a reliable ellipse finder.
Additional enhancements include 3D cross-section extraction and analysis using the existing metrology tool and a barcode reader that works in more instances without adjusting default settings.
MIL 10 Processing Pack 2 will be available in Early Access (EA) form by the end of Q2 2016 to users with valid maintenance subscriptions through the software’s self- update service. The official release will be available in Q3 2016. It will also be available for evaluation.
Matrox Imaging has also announced a major update to Linux support for Matrox Imaging Library (MIL). MIL 10 R2 for Linux gives users even more ready-made tools to solve 2D and 3D vision challenges from within the familiar and proven MIL API along with numerous productivity enhancements that will reduce time and effort required to bring solutions to market. This release also integrates support for the new Matrox Radient eV-CL frame grabber on Linux.
MIL 10 R2 for Linux provides support for the latest versions of leading Linux distributions, namely Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and SUSE Linux Enterprise 12. Enhancements for 3D vision include calibration of multiple sheet-of-light and camera systems to work as one; a new, more robust peak detection algorithm and a new 3D surface registration tool. Enhancements for 2D vision include additional image pre-processing, additions to the ID mark reading and verification tools, new color-relative calibration, a new dedicated circle matcher and additional speed optimizations.
“The adoption of Linux as the basis for imaging systems is growing and we are committed to providing the up-to-date support in our MIL software on Linux that machine vision programmers need to develop even the most demanding applications,” said Pierantonio Boriero, product line manager, Matrox Imaging. “They will appreciate the innovative new tools in MIL that will simplify and accelerate their development projects.”
MIL/MIL-Lite 10 R2 for Linux is available now to users with valid maintenance subscriptions through the software’s self-update service. It is also available for evaluation.
Matrox Imaging has also introduced Matrox SureDotOCR, the first OCR technology specifically designed to overcome the challenges of using inkjet-printed, dot-matrix text in vision inspection applications, particularly on packaging lines in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. SureDotOCR will be made available initially as an add-on tool to Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) machine vision software.
