I read your story on software interfaces (January 2003, p. 31) and am writing about our work with DVT detecting automotive exterior mirror colors. We are one of DVT's distributors and helped the company design a front-end program that allows operators to train the color system with a click of a button. Once trained, the software produces inspection results. All the information about the trained color is stored in the camera so that there is no reliance on a computer.

Color results can be saved to MS Excel, or history can be recorded using Intellution's new ihistorian database. The images can be archived so that quality personnel can query the database for data or images via a Web browser using Intellutions InfoAgent. This seamless integration between the DVT SmartImage Sensor and Intellution produces the genealogy trail needed to control the scope of a recall.

Thank you very much for the article "Software interfaces ease programming" (January 2003, p. 31) in which you mention the AVT GENIUS. We regard your comments on this particular market as very professional and informative. Thanks again for your impressions on the capabilities of the GENIUS system.

Unfortunately the feature description regarding the sensor is not right: the GENIUS has a much higher resolution of 1280 × 1024 pixels with 10 bits than the 640 × 480 (× 8 bits) you mentioned. We hope your readers won't regard this camera as not quite suitable for their applications now.
