MONTREAL – Feb. 8, 2016 — Matrox® Imaging today announced a major update to Linux® support with its core vision software product, 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.
