All intelligent cameras of the latest generation feature a multi-core ARM platform with VC Linux operating system and free access to VC Lib computer vision library containing more than 300 functions.

We also offer customized OEM solutions with customer-specific modified lighting and optics.

ARM / Linux

The ARM-based board camera series follow the proved and tested quality of Vision Components: Thanks to the engaged processors the small power packs provide for top performance. The VCSBC nano Z series Smart Cameras come with a Dual Core Cortex A9. 
Like all VC Smart Camera models sensors from well-known manufacturers are included.

As an extra feature of VC Z series, the FPGA module, Xilinx's ZYNQ SoC, is programmable and thus able to boost the system's performance ernormously. This service is especially addressed to our OEM customers and guarantees for maximizing the hardware performance.

VC Smart Finder SW tool for pattern matching machine vision tasks

Der VC Smart Finder

The VC Smart Finder allows to identify structures by means of preset patterns. The object is recognized a hundred percent, no matter what object it is: e.g. bottle labels as well as complex components.

VC Smart Reader SW tool for decoding 2D codes, DMC

Der VC Smart Reader

The VC Smart Reader identifies reliably 2D codes, e.g. data matrix codes and barcodes, and is enormously fast with reading rates of 150 codes/per second. Code detection and reading is not affected by  the code's shape and size, its rotation and illumnination - it doesn't matter if the background is bright or dark. Mirrored and partially covered or destroyed codes are reliably identified, too.
