MATRIX VISION has announced interoperability between its mvBlueCOUGAR-X, mvBLUECOUGAR-XD, and mvBlueFOX3 cameras, and A&B Software’s GenICam based software development kit (SDK), ActiveGeni.

ActiveGeni is a universal hardware-independent SDK designed to provide developers with access to GenICam compliant digital video cameras. The SDK enables the creation of 64-bit, 32-bit, and mixed platform applications, acquires and displays live video from a number of GenICam-compliant cameras, and enables the section of multiple camera sources. In addition, ActiveGeni allows users to set a desired video format and triggering mode, set a desired frame rate, and select a desired size and position of a scan area.

MATRIX VISION’s mvBlueCOUGAR-X cameras are compact industrial cameras with GigE interface, CCD or CMOS image sensor options from VGA to 10 MPixels, and gray scale and color versions. They feature FPGA-based on-board hardware preprocessing and 64 MB image memory. The mvBLUECOUGAR-XD are the dual GigE interface with CCD or CMOS image sensor options up to 6 MPixels and gray scale and color versions. These cameras also feature FPGA-based on-board hardware preprocessing, along with 256 MB of image memory.

mvBlueFOX3 cameras are compact industrial cameras with USB 3.0 interface and CCD or CMOS image sensor options from VGA to 14 MPixel sizes. These cameras also feature gray scale and color versions, FPGA-based on-board hardware preprocessing, and 256 MB of image memory.

With this interoperability, developers and system integrators will have universal access to MATRIX VISION’s cameras and be able to facilitate rapid application development in a number of popular programming environments including Visual Studio, Visual Basic (VB), Delphi, PowerBuilder, Java, Matlab, Python, Labview.
