PRESS RELEASE

Matrox Iris GT smart camera line-up now includes high-resolution sensor

July 16, 2009, Montreal, Quebec, Canada - Matrox Imaging is pleased to announce the addition of a higher-resolution sensor to its line of Matrox Iris GT smart cameras.

"Many applications require higher resolution to acquire the entire area of interest in a single image - yet maintain the resolving power needed to perform necessary tasks such as reading multiple 2D codes," explains Fabio Perelli, Product Manager, Matrox Imaging. The sensor on the Matrox Iris GT1900 is a 1600 x 1200 @ 15fps 1/1.8" monochrome CCD.

Powered by an Intel 1.6 GHz Atom processor, Matrox Iris GT runs Windows CE 6.0, and features an integrated graphics controller with VGA output, 256MB DDR2 memory, and 1 GB of flash disk. Like other sensor configurations, Matrox Iris GT1900 is housed in a sturdy, dust-proof and washable IP67-rated casing.

Matrox Iris GT is available either with the Matrox Design Assistant interactive development environment (bundled with each unit) or with the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) (sold separately). Pricing for Matrox Iris GT with Design Assistant starts at $4,995 US (EUR 3,845) OEM (quantity 1), and is available now. Visit our website for more information and product photo.

About Matrox Design Assistant
In the Matrox Design Assistant environment, users interactively create a flowchart of the application instead of programming or scripting. Each flowchart "step" translates into an instruction for the Matrox Iris GT camera to capture, locate, measure, read, communicate and interact with other devices. Matrox Design Assistant offers all required vision tools for most applications with the same reliability and robustness as MIL. Matrox Design Assistant's integrated HTML editor and layout tool gives users the flexibility to create a custom web-based operator view for monitoring the application.

About the Matrox Imaging Library
Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) is a comprehensive collection of optimized software tools for developing industrial imaging applications that run under Windows CE 6.0 and other operating systems. The toolkit features interactive software and programming functions for performing image capture, processing, analysis, annotation, display and archiving. MIL specifically includes tools for calibrating, enhancing and transforming images, locating objects, extracting and measuring features, reading character strings, and decoding and verifying identification marks. First released in 1993, MIL's easy-to-use coherent application programming interface (API) has stood the test of time. MIL pioneered the concept of hardware independence with the same API for different image acquisition and processing platforms.
