Operator interface viewable anywhere

The web-based operator interface, or Operator View, can be accessed locally or remotely through a web browser4. Local viewing is done on the computer or Matrox 4Sight GPm vision system that is executing the project. Remote viewing is done from any computer, including dedicated HMI or touch-panel PCs.

A stand-alone HMI application can be created using Microsoft® Visual Studio® to run on the local or a remote computer as an alternative to the web-based operator interface. Sample HMI applications with source code are included like a multi-camera one to monitor or control projects running on different computers or Matrox smart cameras.

Security features

Access to specific Operator Views can be made to require user authentication (i.e., username and password) so only authorized personnel can modify key parameters of a running project. A project can be locked to a specific Matrox 4Sight GPm when deployed, preventing it from running on an unauthorized vision system. A project can also be encrypted during deployment to a vision system, ensuring that the project cannot be read or changed by unauthorized users. Projects locked to a vision system are automatically encrypted.
