|Despite some very hot and humid temperatures in Boston last week, the show had the highest number of exhibitors ever, all of whom were ready to showcase the latest and greatest advances in cameras, optics, lighting and software. Things picked up very nicely with a large number of visitors—many from the US east coast—coming to check out the latest trends and innovations in the machine vision industry.
Point Grey's live camera demos drew a lot of attention. The Real Quattro demo demonstrated the exceptional image quality and resolution of the upcoming 1.3MP and 5MP Flea2's, the high-speed imaging of the new 0.3MP 200 FPS Grasshopper model, and the 160MB/s bandwidth of the world’s first low profile dual bus 1394b PCI Express card.
The Freeze Frame demo demonstrated 32 automatically synchronized 2.0MP Grasshopper cameras streaming 320MB/s into one PC, and inspired visitors to do jumps and spins worthy of The Matrix.
