LMI Technologies Introduces V4.1 HexSight Software for High Accuracy Recognition and Metrology

DELTA, British Columbia, Canada - LMI Technologies Inc. (LMI) announces the release of Version 4.1 of their HexSight software for high accuracy recognition and metrology. The new V4.1 HexSight Software adds further support for color image processing and hardware acceleration and now supports Sony Intelligent Cameras.

"HexSight 4.1 is a first class recognition and metrology library suitable for deployment on PCs and now embedded platforms like the Sony Intelligent Camera product line", says Terry Arden, CEO of LMI Technologies.

HexSight's geometric pattern recognition technology offers flexible and reliable contour-based identification of objects unaffected by scale, orientation, lighting, occlusion, clutter, contrast reversal, or even subtle color variation. After finding objects, HexSight delivers a flexible set of metrology tools to measure and confirm that the parts meet key tolerances.

To maximize capabilities of the software, HexSight 4.1 incorporates a wide range of third party camera and frame grabber support. The latest release adds support for fully compliant GigE Vision Cameras, adding to the current capability to work with any IEEE 1394(Firewire) and USB camera that uses a DirectShow driver.

HexSight 4.1 is ideal for a vast array of machine vision challenges including road sign detection, solar wafer inspection, shirt tag location and analysis, optical character recognition, brake pad inspection, part sorting and sizing plus many other applications.
