Matrox Imaging released the version 2019 of its flowchart-based vision software Design Assistant X. It includes a range of 3D steps and functionality, supports the Iris GTX smart cameras, offers OPC UA communication, features a new step for enhancing image contrast and simplifies project troubleshooting and optimization. The new version adds the ability to visualize point clouds-optionally color-coded, meshed, and filled-in addition to depth maps and profiles. Iris GTX users have a suite of tools for developing machine vision operations as well as deep learning inference. A HDR step generate images with enhanced contrast by combining images of an identical scene, taken at different camera exposure levels, into a single image with a greater range of luminance.
