Halcon 11 machine-vision software extends its data code-reading functionality by supporting Aztec and Micro QR codes. Classification tasks are simplified with Automatic Feature Selection for Classification. The Profiler Tool and a new optical character recognition (OCR) assistant enhance usability of the integrated development environment, HDevelop. Sixteen additional operators supported by GPU computing and various faster algorithms enable faster processing. Halcon 11 now supports the Mac OS X operating system for the first time.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE
MVTec Announces HALCON 11
MVTec Software GmbH (Munich, Germany), manufacturer of standard software for machine vision, announces the release of the new version HALCON 11 for June 1, 2012. For machine vision users, HALCON 11 provides many innovations and enhancements.
As a unique feature, HALCON 11 presents the “Sample-based Identification”. With this innovative technology, trained objects can be recognized only by characteristic features like color or texture, thereby eliminating the need to use bar codes or data codes for object identification purposes.
Furthermore, HALCON introduces new technologies and enhancements for 3D vision like "3D Surface Comparison", registration and triangulation of point clouds, and improved photometric stereo tools for superior 3D surface inspection capabilities.
HALCON 11 extends its data code reading functionality by supporting Aztec and Micro QR codes. Moreover, classification tasks are greatly simplified by using the “Automatic Feature Selection for Classification”. Furthermore, the usability of HALCON’s integrated development environment (HDevelop) is improved thanks to new features like the Profiler Tool and a new OCR assistant.
The speed of HALCON 11 is significantly improved by 16 additional operators supported by GPU computing and various faster algorithms. On top, many new market- and user-orientated code examples as well as detailed documentation are included. HALCON 11 now supports the Mac OS X operating system making HALCON’s technologies available to Apple users for the first time.
