Video Server API from Multipix enables users to transmit images over network for analysis

Pleora Video Server API
It is now possible to transmit images over a network from a computer to one or more destinations in a Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) manner using the Pleora Video Server application programming interface (API) from Multipix Imaging.
Images are captured and sent to the Video Server API from several types of devices or applications. The images could be sent from one or more GigE Vision-compatible cameras; from a file, such as a WMV file; from one or more cameras using USB, Firewire or other point-to-point technology; or from computer-generated video, representing raw data, such as performance counters.
The Video Server API will offer additional benefits to a traditional GigE Vision transmitter, such as a camera. The table below provides the comparison.
As the table shows, the Video Server API is used primarily to transfer images from a computer to GigE Vision-compliant receivers. Control of the image stream and other parameters is not performed using Genicam, as is done with a typical camera.
However, an image acquisition application created using the Ebus software development kit can control a video server application using a custom protocol and an out-of-band communications method.

Multipix Imaging will present data matrix readers, vision sensors, smart cameras and embedded machine vision systems from Datalogic Industrial Automation at the Total Processing and Packaging Exhibition.
Multipix Imaging has announced that two monochrome two-megapixel and four-megapixel Basler Ace CMOSIS GigE cameras are now available as near-infrared (NIR)-optimised variants. They are particularly suited to surveillance tasks, intelligent traffic systems or biometrics applications.
Multipix Imaging has introduced the compact Ensenso N10 stereo 3D camera featuring a USB interface. The camera is suitable for industrial applications such as medical engineering, robotics and gripping technology, logistics, completeness checking, rapid volume measurement and safety engineering.
If a camera is calibrated for colour, the colours on an sRGB monitor largely correspond to the colours as they appear in reality. With a calibrated camera, users can measure colour to standardised values, which is particularly important in the printing industry. It means that the colours in the image can be compared to standardised target values, and this is essential for achieving a colour image true to the original.
Multipix Imaging has launched the Datalogic Matrix 450, a high-end industrial 2D reader for logistics applications.
