The Powerful Capabilities of Smart Cameras

May 16, 2017

12:00-1:30 pm EDT


Smart cameras are the most common choice for general purpose vision system applications.  Within just a few years, the capabilities of smart cameras have grown dramatically.  Available image resolution has increased from 5 megapixels maximum to 21 megapixels.  Processing power has quadrupled to begin to close the gap with PCs.  The range of applications continues to expand as more sophisticated and easy-to-use image processing functions are incorporated into the smart camera’s software.  This webinar explores the characteristics of smart cameras, how they have advanced, typical applications, and a couple of topics where the product offerings may not meet expectations.

What you will learn from this webinar:

  • What a smart camera is and how it differs from other general purpose machine vision systems
  • How smart cameras reduce the cost of a machine vision application
  • The different ways to program smart cameras
  • Five examples of how smart cameras are solving unique machine vision requirements
