Applications

Industry leaders rely on our technology. Customers stay with us over multiple product generations because of our commitment to cutting-edge technology, technical assistance, integration support, and the highest manufacturing standards.
Image processing and analysis
Image processing and analysis software readies images for effective examination using grey scale, edge, and color information for study, diagnoses, and quality control. The software is also capable of offloading to field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based hardware.
Machine and robot guidance

Machine and robot guidance employs vision software to accurately locate and determine the pose of objects and features; great repeatability is crucial for guiding automated fabrication and manufacturing using machines and industrial robots. Intensity and geometric-based pattern-recognition tools are key aspects of the software.

ID mark reading and verification
ID mark reading and verification software helps ensure effective item tracking and tracing during manufacturing, packaging, and distribution, as well as general automated handling. It reads widely used barcodes and 2D symbologies, including direct part marking (DPM), and verifies decodability against established standards. Matrox Imaging software performs OCR on product information text made up of solid-stroke and dot-matrix characters.
Image and video capture
Image and video capture comes via software and hardware that reliably captures SD, HD, UHD, and non-standard definition images and video delivered using the Camera Link®, CoaXPress®, DisplayPort™, GenTL, GigE Vision®, HDMI™, SDI, and USB3 Vision® digital interfaces as well as legacy analog formats.
Visual inspection and measurement
Visual inspection and measurement software inspects assemblies, components, packaging, parts, and materials for presence/absence, anomalies, defects, flaws, and conformity to quality standards. The software includes tools to take accurate and repeatable measurements in both 2D and 3D.
3D tools for capture, display, processing, and analysis
Comprehensive 3D hardware and software offerings deliver the necessary tools to acquire, display, process, and analyze depth maps and point clouds for the next dimension in machine vision.
Deep-learning-based image classification
Classification tools leveraging machine learning, including deep learning, streamline the resolution of challenging identification and inspection applications.
