Teledyne DALSA Showcases Machine Vision Technology at Automate 2011

Teledyne DALSA Experts to Educate Attendees on Color Machine Vision and Camera Interface Technologies

WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and a global leader in machine vision technology, will showcase its newest imaging components technology at Automate 2011 in Chicago, Illinois March 21-24, 2011. Teledyne DALSA will feature its smart camera solutions and Vision Appliances, as well as introduce its new BOA IDR, Teledyne DALSA's first entry in the image-based ID category. In addition, Teledyne DALSA executives will participate in four educational sessions at Automate 2011.

Visit Teledyne DALSA at Booth 1019 at Automate 2011 where the company will showcase the following products and technology:

BOA™ Smart Cameras – Teledyne DALSA's BOA is an all-in-one machine vision system that is smarter, easier to use, and more flexible than previous generations of smart cameras. BOA Smart Cameras have multiple processors, are rated for IP67 deployment for use in harsh environments and consume low power. BOA is available for both mono and color imaging with resolution from VGA up to 1280 x 960 and captures rates up to 60 frames per second. BOA now comes bundled with Inspect Express 1700 software for even faster application deployment. Control Engineering recently awarded BOA their 2011 Engineers' Choice Award in the machine vision category.

BOA IDR – Teledyne DALSA's first entry in the image-based ID category, BOA IDR allows manufacturers to combine 1D and 2D tracking with other inspection tasks, such as character reading and verification, to ensure all product markings match and are readable when they leave the factory floor. BOA IDR is ideal for part recognition, tracking and verification applications in the automotive, electronics, packaging and pharmaceutical industries.

GEVA GigE-ready Vision Appliance – GEVA offers a cost-effective multi-camera performance platform for industrial inspection tasks and is compatible with Teledyne DALSA's full range of Genie and Spyder3 cameras, as well as third party cameras. 

Genie™ GigE Vision Compliant Cameras – With over 21 models and active resolutions from VGA up to 1600 X 1200, Genie cameras offer a versatile platform for both mono and color image capture with uncompromised image quality.

Teledyne DALSA Session Overview:

  • Monday, March 21 from 8:00-12:00 – "Advanced Color Theory and Applications" with Ben Dawson
  • Monday, March 21 at 1:30 - "Update on the Camera Link HS Standard" with Mike Miethig
  • Wednesday, March 23 at 1:30 - "GigE Vision – 5 years of success" with Eric Carey
  • Thursday, March 24, from 8:30-10:30 – "Camera Interface Technologies" panel with Eric Carey

Expert Speakers:

Ben Dawson, Director of Strategic Development at Teledyne DALSA, will teach Tutorial #2 a CVP-Advanced Certification Class on "Advanced Color Theory and Applications" on Monday, March 21 from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Dawson will address why color is important for a growing number of machine vision applications in food, pharmaceutical, automotive and many other markets. This course will start with how color images are formed and then review aspects of human color vision that are important in designing a color machine vision system. Attendees will then focus on how to build and apply color machine vision systems to tasks such as automated inspection, tracking, identification, and color matching.

Dawson is Director of Strategic Development at Teledyne's DALSA's Industrial Products Division. Prior to joining DALSA, Dawson was Director of R&D at Imaging Technology, and then worked on face biometrics and animation. He earned M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University and was on staff at M.I.T.

Eric Carey, Chairman of the Automated Imaging Association (AIA) GigE Vision committee and R&D Director for Teledyne DALSA Montreal, will participate on a "Camera Interface Technologies panel" on Thursday, March 24, from 8:30 – 10:30 am. Attendees will learn how changes developing in camera interface technologies will positively affect your machine vision systems. Get an overview of standards available today and what lies ahead for camera interfaces such as GigE Vision®, Camera Link®, GenICam, and CoaXpress. Attendees will leave this class with a better understanding of standards allowing them to develop the right investment strategy for their company.

Carey will also present, "GigE Vision – 5 years of success," on Wednesday, March 23 at 1:30 p.m. in the New Product Presentation Theater on the show floor.

Carey is the R&D Director for Teledyne DALSA's camera, frame grabber, vision processors and image processing software.
