mvBlueGEMINI - Tool box technology camera

mvBlueGEMINI - applications in no time
  • Web-based software solution
  • Save time with automatic tool selection and parameterizing
  • Matching software and hardware
  • Extendable using customer specific tools
  • Powered by HALCON
  • Easy to adapt GUI
  • Multi-language GUI

 

With the twin concept consisting of the mvBlueGEMINI smart camera and the software mvIMPACT-CS, the industrial image processing becomes faster and more productive. MATRIX VISION enables beginners, professional users, and system integrators to realize applications in an highly efficient way. This modern technology connects hardware and software you’ve never seen before and is both innovative and easy to use.

The software mvIMPACT Configuration Studio, or simply mvIMPACT-CS, is matched to the mvBlueGEMINI and delivers what it promises. It comes pre-installed on the camera and forms a unity with the hardware. So “plug & work” with mvIMPACT-CS is a reality for beginners, advanced users and for image processing professionals.

The browser-based software has a user-friendly menu navigation. Applications can be developed in a very intuitive way. An application consists of individual tools like “Acquire image”, “Find object”, etc. which are based on the image processing library HALCON.

All available tools are grouped in the toolbox, from which the user can select those suitable to solve various tasks. Furthermore, tasks can be trained with the software choosing the right algorithms and setting the matching parameters. Image processing knowhow is, consequently, not an absolute requirement.

Your advantages with the mvBlueGEMINI and mvIMPACT-CS

The software mvIMPACT Configuration Studio, or simply mvIMPACT-CS, is matched to the mvBlueGEMINI and delivers what it promises.

It comes pre-installed on the camera and forms a unity with the hardware. So "plug and work" with mvIMPACT-CS is a reality for beginners, advanced users and for image processing professionals.

An application consists of individual tools like "Acquire image", "Find objects" etc.

All tools are powered by the image processing library HALCON and have a user-friendly menu navigation. Parameters have been reduced to just those that are absolutely necessary.

The Tool-Box - the source of all tools.

All available tools are grouped in the tool box, from which the user can select those suitable to solve various tasks.

Wizards help to save time.

Tasks can be trained, with the software choosing the right algorithms and setting the matching parameters. Image processing knowhow is, consequently, not an absolute requirement.
