Modern medicine depends on reliable imaging

Vision solutions for medical applications

Having the right perspective means being able to diagnose illnesses earlier, to improve treatments and to save lives. Modern medicine depends on imaging for the diagnosis and real-​time monitoring of operative procedures.

Medical Video Server

Various imaging systems such as endoscopes, microscopes, X-ray devices, CTs, MRIs or operating room monitoring cameras are used in medical applications. The video sources are based on different interfaces, resolutions, video standards, control options, etc. A major challenge is to install all these video sources in the clinical environment, provide the most diverse cable concepts, operate the cameras, transport, display, document and archive image and video data or, for example, to make the data visible for remote diagnosis.

This was exactly the focus for STEMMER IMAGING's newly developed concepts and products such as, the »Medical Video Server«, making it possible to record, manage and display any common video source and to distribute the data via LAN/WAN. Whether SD or HD, analogue or digital – we have the right solutions for you.

FGI modules

Another example are our FGI modules: small, modular GigE interfaces for transporting different video source data to a Gigabit Ethernet network. Currently, we already supply modules for Sony auto-focus integrated zoom cameras which are frequently used in surgical light cameras and operating theatre monitoring cameras, for example. This interface not only provides image transfer but also integrates complete camera control and power supply. Thus, no complex cabling with many different special cables is required: one single network cable will be sufficient. Control and visualization are also done via the network.

The modular conception of the FGI modules allows for easy adaptation to other image sources and for functional extension, such as image data compression for HD video streaming via network.

Allied Vision Alvium embedded platform powers hugely versatile camera range

12/03/2020

The Allied Vision Alvium 1800 range of cameras combines the best of two worlds: the performance and durability of industrial machine vision and the compact hardware and cost efficiency of embedded systems. It is ideally suited for machine vision applications requiring small and lightweight cameras that provide high image quality and frame rates at an attractive price/performance ratio.

High speed, high resolution inline smart 3D inspection

11/01/2019

The introduction of new Gocator® laser line profilers, snapshot sensors and the GoMax plug and play smart vision accelerator by LMI Technologies transforms inline quality inspection capabilities. The 2500 series of smart sensors are the fastest, most compact, and advanced Gocator® 3D laser line profilers to date. The Gocator 3504 is the highest XY resolution 3D snapshot sensor on the market today. GoMax® can accelerate any Gocator® by adding massive GPU-driven data processing power to the sensor (or sensor network).

New lens added to range of Zeiss Interlock compact lenses

23/08/2018

A new, wide angle lens with a focal length of 25 mm has been added to the Zeiss Interlock range of compact, lightweight lenses. These are designed for use with large format area and line scan cameras. The full metal housing, locking screws for focus and aperture and their resilience to dust, water and vibration make these lenses ideally suited to use in very harsh industrial environments.

Inline testing of the wettability of material surfaces

21/06/2018

With the new bonNDTinspect® system, Automation W+R enables the reliable assessment of surfaces that are to be bonded, painted or otherwise treated in subsequent process steps. The system is based on a patent held by Fraunhofer IFAM and machine vision components from STEMMER IMAGING.

Reliable packaging of medicinally active ingredients

16/12/2017

Sophisticated technology for the pharmaceutical industry and the construction of machines in this sector are among the core competences of Harro Höfliger. Machine vision systems ensure reliable quality inspections at several points in a new plant for the packaging of painkillers.

Vision software for track and trace applications

20/01/2015

Industrial vision plays an important role in reading unique identifiers in the form of 1D or 2D codes, alphanumerics or even braille for tracking and tracing applications in industries as diverse as aerospace, automotive, healthcare and pharmaceutical. Specialist vision systems integrators are frequently used to design systems for complex code reading tasks requiring extremely precise triggering and encoding to the manufacturing process. The choice of image processing software is important in complex imaging environments.
