Matrox Imaging Library - MIL 9.0 - operates at full throttle
MIL 9.0 has been tailored to meet the demands of high-throughput, processing-intensive applications.
(PresseBox) (München, )Matrox Imaging has announced the release of MIL 9.0. This is the latest version of the Matrox Imaging Library, the field-proven application development toolkit for image analysis, machine vision, image processing and medical imaging.
MIL 9.0 can take advantage of today's extremely high-performance graphics processor units (GPUs) and high-performance computing (HPC) clusters. This means, for example, that a MIL application can be distributed across several computers over a network, be controlled remotely or in a master-slave configuration. To help reduce the load on the host CPU, MIL 9.0 can now offload image processing functions (primitives such as arithmetic, geometric transforms, filters, and morphology), to a GPU. Finally, MIL 9.0 includes support for Windows® Vista® and 64-bit operating systems.
As an add-on, MIL 9.0's Processing Pack 1 (PP1) features multi-core and multi-CPU speed optimizations, a color analysis tool, a 3D reconstruction tool and verification of 1D/2D codes using ISO/IEC standards.
The Matrox Imaging Library 9.0 will be available in Q3 2008.
MIL 9.0 PP1 will be available to MIL 9.0 users as part of the MIL maintenance program in Q4 2008.
