Original Press Release:
Matrox 4Sight X Marks a Decade of Embedded Systems for Imaging and Machine Vision
February 14, 2008, Dorval, QC - Matrox Imaging has launched the Matrox 4Sight X, the latest generation of embedded systems that integrate video capture, processing and display.
The rugged construction and small footprint make Matrox 4Sight X ideal for any environment. Built upon an embedded Intel® 64-bit multi-core architecture, Matrox 4Sight X is equipped with either a Core(TM)2 Duo or Celeron® processor, as well as an Intel® GMA x3100 2D/3D graphics engine to offload image processing.
For image acquisition, 4Sight X features dual integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports for GigE Vision(TM) and three IEEE 1394 a/b ports for Industrial Instrumentation Digital Camera (IIDC). Optional frame grabbers for x4 PCIe® / 32-bit PCI can acquire video from analog, digital RS-422/LVDS, and Camera Link® sources. Complementary hardware compression capability is also available. All optional hardware (for image acquisition and compression) is pre-installed and configured at the factory.
Microsoft® Windows® XP Embedded is available on the system; applications are programmed with the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL). Like hardware, software is pre-installed so developers have a simpler development and deployment process and can get their product to market sooner. Matrox 4Sight X is manufactured in-house with stringent change control so a consistent supply is available throughout its long life cycle, helping to maximize ROI.
Pricing for 4Sight X starts at $1995 US OEM (quantity 1), and will be available in Q1 2008.
