JULY 31, 2008--Beginning August 1, 2008, the distribution of machine-vision-software products of MVTec Software (Munich, Germany; www.mvtec.com) in the UK and Ireland will be performed by MultiPix Imaging (Petersfield, UK; www.multipix.com). Furthermore, MultiPix will provide technical support for MVTec products HALCON and ActivVisionTools. MultiPix was previously MVTec's distribution partner for the UK and Ireland until 2005.
The distribution channel transition is chosen to prepare the launch of the new HALCON 9.0 version at the beginning of 2009. HALCON 9.0 will offer performance increases, better usability, and completely new matching technologies.
