OCTOBER 15, 2008--Common Vision Blox Version 10 is the latest release of the programming library for imaging, supporting the 32-bit version of Windows VISTA. To avoid unnecessary delays when using the installation program, user prompts are minimized. No further system restarts are required, even after the installation of the hardware drivers. All other system settings can be accessed via central management console. With the new GigE Vision Server, a suitably equipped computer behaves like a complete GigE Vision and GenICam compatible camera, with configurable features. The data output from the Vision Server conforms to the GigE Vision and GenICam standards and is compatible with any standards-compliant software interfaces from other providers.

Common Vision Blox 10 for VISTA
STEMMER IMAGING, Europe's largest imaging technology provider, is proud to announce version 10 of the Common Vision Blox (CVB) programming library. In addition to CVB's well known hardware independence and unrivalled connection flexibility, Version 10 includes support of Microsoft Windows VISTA and a brand new, highly optimised installation routine.
Common Vision Blox Version 10 is the latest release of this highly respected programming library for imaging and now offers full support for the 32-bit version of Windows VISTA. Version 10 also complies with Microsoft's OS design rules for genuine VISTA support, so that the new features and strengthened security it provides can be used in conjunction with Common Vision Blox.
The Common Vision Blox installation routines have been fully revised and updated for this release. With Version 10, CVB offers a modern installation procedure that sets new standards in user friendliness. To avoid unnecessary delays when using the installation program, the system's developers felt that it was particularly important to keep any user prompts to an absolute minimum. In addition, no further system restarts are required, even after the installation of the hardware drivers. Once installed, all other system settings can be accessed via the central management console which is another new feature in CVB 10.
The compilation of customised installation routines required to transfer proprietary CVB based applications from one machine to another have been greatly simplified - a feature that is particularly useful for system integrators and application companies. The target group of customers benefit in two ways from this new version.
CVB Version 10 is available for download at: www.commonvisionblox.com. This update is of course, free of charge for registered users of Common Vision Blox. A free 14-day full version is also available for evaluation purposes.

CVB GigE Vision-Server - Turning the tables
When people talk about software for GigE Vision cameras they are usually referring to the drivers required for image capture. Now, STEMMER IMAGING is turning the tables by offering an innovative GigE Vision Server for Common Vision Blox (CVB) for the first time.
With its independent imaging libraries, Common Vision Blox has, for some time, offered the most comprehensive and powerful implementation of the GigE Vision and GenICam standards. With the new GigE Vision Server, a suitably equipped computer behaves like a complete GigE Vision and GenICam compatible camera, with freely configurable features. As one would expect, STEMMER IMAGING's CVB remains true to the principle of hardware independence. The data output by the CVB GigE Vision Server conforms to the GigE Vision and GenICam standards and is therefore compatible with any standards compliant software interfaces from other providers.
CVB GigE Vision Server opens up completely new areas of opportunity for imaging. At its most basic level, images can be transferred from a hard disk or from any CVB compatible imaging hardware, via a network interface, thus making use of the benefits offered by simplified GigE Vision cabling. In this way, GigE Vision cameras can be simulated alongside any CVB compatible imaging technologies.
Even more complex applications have already been implemented, such as local pre-processing of image data using a GigE Vision Server PC and distributed computing across full MultiCast server solutions; neither presenting any difficulties for Common Vision Blox. Customised remote control of the GigE Vision Server plus the acquisition implemented on it, are provided by the freely configurable GenICam features found in CVB GigE Vision Server.
With this latest innovation, STEMMER IMAGING once again underlines the technological superiority of the Common Vision Blox library. And of course, with this implementation, the developers at STEMMER IMAGING benefit from their ongoing commitment to the committees of both the GigE Vision and GenICam standards. CVB Version 10 is available for download at: www.commonvisionblox.com. This update is again free of charge for registered CVB users.
