MVTec Announces Distributor for Poland, Nordic and Baltic Countries
MVTec Software GmbH Posted 10/28/2008
Since October 2008, the distribution of MVTec machine vision software products in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, and Sweden is performed by Parameter. Besides the distribution of HALCON and ActivVisionTools, Parameter will also provide high-level technical support and training for these software products.
According to Michael Cohn, CEO of Parameter AB, the strength of MVTec Software GmbH is their total commitment to building machine vision software. ‘‘HALCON’s extensive library and multiplatform support will add to Parameter’s portfolio of market leading suppliers of illumination, cameras, optics and other software’‘, adds Michael Cohn. ‘‘Thus, Parameter will be able to offer new and even smarter solutions to the market, because Parameter’s business model is aligned with extensive application support, which will give our customers quick access to the power available in the HALCON software.’‘
The beginning of the distribution cooperation is carefully chosen to match the launch of the new HALCON 9.0 version in January 2009. HALCON 9.0 offers numerous novelties such as new matching technologies for perspectively distorted objects, further developments in 3D vision, and enhanced speed (especially regarding HALCON’s automatic operator parallelization).
‘‘Northern Europe is an important industrial market’‘, says Dr. Olaf Munkelt, MVTec’s managing director. ‘‘Thus, MVTec wants to expand its sales activities in this region. We are sure that Parameter will meet our requirements in a distinguished way.’‘
Parameter AB, a privately held company founded in 1968, has continuously provided industrial companies with advanced technology that meets the requirements of the industrial applications and needs. Parameter is active throughout Scandinavia, the Baltic countries, and Poland. Parameter supplies technology from several of the world market leaders within three business areas: Imaging, Optics, and Positioning/Measurement. Parameter’s customers are also market leaders in many different branches, such as paper, wood, bio medicine, electronics, food, and manufacturing. For more information refer to: www.parameter.se
