DALSA to Present Webcast on Migrating From Analog to Digital Image Capture

WATERLOO, ON--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - DALSA Corporation (TSX: DSA), a leader in the design, manufacturing and deployment of digital imaging components for the machine vision market, will host a webinar titled "Migrating from Analog to Digital Image Capture," on Thursday, June 26, 2008.

Who: DALSA Corporation ( is a leader in the design, manufacturing and deployment of digital imaging components for the machine vision market.

What: The webinar: "Migrating from Analog to Digital Image Capture" will discuss how the vast majority of industrial vision systems in operation today use analog cameras for image capture only to then employ an additional interface to convert that analog data into a digital format. This process is entrenched and there has been little motivation to switch from analog to digital image capture despite inherent advantages such as increased stability, better noise immunity, and elimination of pixel jitter. Over the years, incremental advances in camera electronics (smart cameras) and frame grabbers have done an excellent job of continuing to make analog cameras both viable and cost effective. The belief among manufacturers has been that digital camera systems are more difficult and more expensive to deploy than their comparable analog cousins.

If you are currently using analog cameras in your vision system, this webinar will provide a review of the latest advances in digital camera technology; including new standard interfaces (i.e. AIA's GigE Vision), performance advantages in speed and resolution, optimized system set-up and deployment including networking and multi-camera connectivity, as well as advances in on-board processing.

This webinar is ideal for both OEM and factory floor machine vision system integrators looking to re-examine the case for switching from analog to digital image capture and assess for themselves the real benefits of going digital.

Presented by Yvon Bouchard, Director Systems Architecture, DALSA

Bouchard is responsible for defining new camera and frame grabber technologies and products. He holds a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec.
