Fläche Your solution straight to the camera.

What is the Open Camera Concept®?

The Open Camera Concept® allows you, as a solution provider, to integrate your own applications into NET’s smart vision systems. You can create and modify unique vision solutions yourself. These will, of course, always remain fully in your hands. NET provides the development environment. Benefit from our expertise in designing and implementing vision solutions.

How do you benefit from the Open Camera Concept®?

The Open Camera Concept® allows you to create your own vision solutions for your target groups. You can exploit the full potential of your application and achieve significant advantages in terms of efficiency as opposed to conventional PC-based vision architectures. NET’s smart vision systems offer real-time image processing and feature IP copy protection. This makes your application faster and safer. These benefits help improve your product and, consequently, your position on the market.

Create and control applications with SynView

Create applications with SynView
SynView contains a unique source code generator for the creation of applications in mere minutes without any programming. Create, compile and test the source code instantly with the Wizard. A comprehensive framework shows you a list of all available cameras, allows them to be configured, and enables the transmission of images and streams. C, C++ or .NET Class Library Wrapper – it’s your choice.

Slide 4

Create and control applications with SynView

Save yourself the bother of programming
Source code snippets can be created in SynView with just a few clicks. They are then simply copied and integrated into the application. This means that new camera settings can be tested in Explorer first before they are used in the real application.

In-Kamera Funktionen

NET Library: Real-time algorithms for your NET camera

In-camera features for your application
The NET Library is a compilation of algorithms specially developed for applications in the medical and industrial sectors. Choose from a collection of image processing functions and image pre-processing functions that add value to your application. If required, NET can also offer assistance for the programming of your application solutions.

For the highest degree of natural color reproduction in medicine.
For location-independent consistent color information in industry.
Adaptive Kantenanhebung

NET Library: Real-time algorithms for your NET camera

Edge enhancement
Sharper contours increase confidence when it comes to making decisions in medical and industrial applications. By analyzing the signal changes in adjacent image pixels, the algorithm is applied dynamically.
HDR in Sensorgeschwindigkeit

NET Library: Real-time algorithms for your NET camera

HDR in sensor speed
Benefit from more detailed information for evaluating the image while maintaining the full frame rate of the image sensor with the HDR algorithm.
Adaptive Anpassungen

NET Library: Real-time algorithms for your NET camera

Adaptive adjustments
Depending on the application, different parts of the image are of interest. Targeted visualization with the help of color spreads, adjustment of contrast and brightness, and dynamic signal enhancement open up new possibilities especially for users in the field of medicine. Users can change the parameters directly on NET’s OEM camera themselves.
Canny Edge Filter

Adaptive Vision Studio

Software for Machine Vision

Adaptive Vision Studio at a glance
Adaptive Vision Studio is a dataflow-based programming environment. A comprehensive library for image analysis ensures effective workflows and flexibility in creating the application. Adaptive Vision Studio supports the GenTL standard.

Intuitively drag & drop filters
Combine over 1,000 filters using the simple drag & drop function. The toolbox contains everything you need for your application. In the editor, you can check the result in a preview at any time. You don’t need any expert skills for this.

Create your own HMI
You can create your own Human Machine Interface (HMI) with Adaptive Vision Studio – exactly the way you need it for your application. We have a whole catalog of control functions that can be configured directly in the HMI panel for this. Existing C++ or C# algorithms can also be integrated.

Export application
Once the program has been created, it can be exported as a runtime version straight onto a computer or smart vision system such as CORSIGHT. Applications created with Adaptive Vision Studio are designed specifically for multi-core processors. This means that shorter computing times can be achieved.

Deep Learning add-on
Certain tasks can be solved more reliably with machine learning than with conventional algorithms. No programming experience is necessary. In the supervised mode, the user can even precisely define how defects should appear. We are happy to advise you on the choice of the NET vision solution most suitable for your application.
