OCTOBER 28, 2008--Since October 2008, the distribution of MVTec (Munich, Germany; www.mvtec.com) machine-vision software products in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, and Sweden is performed by Parameter (Stockholm, Sweden; www.parameter.se), a supplier of imaging, optics, and positioning/measurement technology. Besides the distribution of Halcon and ActivVisionTools, Parameter will also provide high-level technical support and training for the software products.
Michael Cohn, CEO of Parameter AB, says, "Halcon's extensive library and multiplatform support will add to Parameter's portfolio of market-leading suppliers of illumination, cameras, optics and other software."
MVTec says the beginning of the distribution agreement was chosen to match the launch of the new Halcon 9.0 version in January 2009 (see "Software upgrades speeds, matching capabilities").
"Northern Europe is an important industrial market," says Dr. Olaf Munkelt, MVTec's managing director. "Thus, MVTec wants to expand its sales activities in this region. We are sure that Parameter will meet our requirements in a distinguished way."
