DORVAL, Quebec, Canada, May 14, 2012 — Matrox Imaging has announced the Matrox 4Sight GP, the fifth generation of its 4Sight family of industrial computers for machine vision and medical imaging applications. Powered by an embedded third-generation Intel Core processor, the computer offers desktop-level performance — including real-time high-definition H.264 encoding offload — in a small, rugged enclosure. The platform accommodates full-height, half-length PCIe boards, which enables developers to insert standard add-in cards, such as Matrox frame grabbers, for analog, Camera Link, CoaXPress, DVI or SDI video capture. It integrates Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 interfaces that provide native support for capturing from GigE Vision and USB3 Vision cameras. The computer is preloaded with Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7 software. Applications are created using standard Microsoft development tools and the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL), a comprehensive collection of tools for developing machine vision and medical imaging applications. MIL features programming functions for image capture, processing, analysis, annotation, display and archiving.
