MAY 20--Stemmer Imaging GmbH (Puchheim, Germany;www.stemmer-imaging.de) has unveiled Version 8.0.1 of its image-processing library Common Vision Blox (CVB). Highlights of the new release include the CVB Minos and CVB Barcode tools in a special version for the ThinkEye smart camera from JAI A/S (Glostrup, Denmark;www.jai.com).
The user interface, iTuition, has also been optimized. In addition to the existing syntax highlighting feature, the script editor now offers code completion, extended drag-and-drop functionality and simpler debugging of in-house scripts.
The list of supported hardware for image capture has also been extended. Drivers for the microEnable III frame grabber from Silicon Software (Mannheim, Germany;www.silicon-software.de) and for the PC2-Vision frame grabber from Coreco Imaging (St.-Laurent, QC, Canada; www.imaging.com) are available.
A newly added driver for FireWire (IEEE 1394) cameras is available. This driver supports image capture using IEEE 1394 cameras over OCHI-compatible IEEE adapters, which are already being built into many laptops as a standard feature.
A demo version is available free of charge. Updated files are also available as a service pack for existing installations of CVB 8.0. New drivers are, however, not contained in the service pack.
