Matrox offers more

In the article "Choosing a PCI-based frame grabber for vision applications" (Vision Systems Design, August 1998, p. 46), the editor chose to illustrate Matrox Imaging by talking about a frame grabber derivative (Matrox Genesis-LC) of a high-end vision processor board (Matrox Genesis). This is a poor representation of what Matrox has to offer in terms of frame grabbers, since it concentrates on a portion of an entire line.

In the article "Choosing a PCI-based frame grabber for vision applications" (Vision Systems Design, August 1998, p. 46), the editor chose to illustrate Matrox Imaging by talking about a frame grabber derivative (Matrox Genesis-LC) of a high-end vision processor board (Matrox Genesis). This is a poor representation of what Matrox has to offer in terms of frame grabbers, since it concentrates on a portion of an entire line. An accurate representation would have illustrated Matrox as a vendor offering frame grabbers that fit into almost every market niche and category discussed in the article.

We recognize that limited space prohibits mention of all products from a single vendor. However, the fact that Matrox was only included under the category of "on-board processing" may lead some readers to overlook the company as a viable option to those companies mentioned under the category of frame grabbers.

We hope that future articles will portray what Matrox has to offer the vision market: a range of products as well as application software development packages and interactive imaging tools.
