At VISION 2014, MVTec showcased HALCON 12 machine vision software for the first time. Now, the software is officially available for download. Among the new features of HALCON 12 is the “automatic text reader,” OCR function, which can handle variations in character features and can both detect and recognize characters in a single operation. Another feature is a set of improvements for MLP classifier, as well as an enhanced interface programming environment, HDevelop, including support for event-based processing.
In addition, MVTec’s new software will feature faster speeds, as it will utilize multi-core processors SSE2 and AVX, as well as GPU acceleration and AVX2, which will enable faster running times on state-of-the-art processors.
