October 25, 2006 - Point Grey’s European customer base includes academic institutions and OEM organizations (original equipment manufacturers), as well as industrial and machine vision application designers. The company’s line of IEEE-1394a and 1394b cameras, and stereo and spherical vision systems address the complex and demanding requirements of European imaging applications.
“Europe represents an important market for Point Grey, as end-users have become increasingly aware of the high quality, ease-of-use and value of Point Grey imaging solutions. Establishing an office in Germany demonstrates a deeper commitment to our growing European customer base and offers immediate benefit such as faster response time to customers in this region,” said Point Grey Director Rod Barman.
Point Grey Research is committed to providing customers with leading edge, high quality digital camera products that are environmentally sound. Point Grey complies with the Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive from the European Union and marks EEE products with the WEEE symbol. Point Grey began shipping RoHS compliant products in April 2006. It now offers a broad range of RoHS-compliant products including the Dragonfly2, Flea2, Firefly MV, Scorpion, Ladybug2 and Bumblebee2, and expects to offer more RoHS-compliant products by the end of 2006.
MVTec, a leading international supplier of software products for machine vision applications, believes having a Point Grey office in Germany will be beneficial. “Point Grey has been a member of our HALCON Image Acquisition Partner Program for quite a long time. Their new office close to the MVTec headquarters in Munich will certainly ease our joint efforts to fulfill the requirements of our customers,” said Development Manager Christoph Zierl.
Point Grey’s Munich office, managed by Christian Loeb, will handle all product inquiries and orders for Europe. Point Grey also maintains operations in North America, and partners with a network of distributors in countries such as Japan and Korea.
