Technology Forum 2019 - Imaging without processing recording image streams (en)
Presentation at the Machine Vision Technology Forum 8-9 October 2019 in Unterschleissheim (Germany)
Speaker: Jon Vickers, STEMMER IMAGING Ltd.
Through the history of machine vision, there has always been a demand to record images and there is a vertical industry that has grown up around this. With TV standard cameras it was not unusual to see video recordings on videotapes, but today’s formats are much more varied and higher bandwidth, so we assume a PC-basis for the recording.
The applications are many, from human training to offline inspection by machines and archiving of data, but the core specification is always bandwidth. Image size and format have an influence, but the real question is: “How much data?”
The machine vision world has always been a three-way battle between cameras, acquisition technology and PC performance and these all impact on a recording system. Newer technology raises the performance and this means that what was once a difficult, custom application is now relatively easy.
In this talk we will look at the limitations and possibilities, and how to create an efficient, high-speed and reliable recording system. There are strategies to help in high-speed, high-bandwidth and multi-camera recording systems and these will be explored through this presentation.
