MONTREAL – Feb. 4, 2014 — At ATX West (Anaheim, Feb. 11-13), Matrox Imaging will demonstrate the upcoming release 4 of Matrox Design Assistant (DA) flowchart-based multi-platform machine vision softwarethat works not only with Matrox Iris GT smart cameras to run inspection projects, but also any PC with GigE Vision®  or USB3 Vision™ cameras. Visitors to booth 4664 will see two live demonstrations.

The Matrox 4Sight GPm industrial imaging computerwill be used to preview DA 4. In addition, Inventek Engineering, a systems integrator for master distributor Valin Corporation, will show a Matrox Iris GT1200C color smart camera interfaced to the latest control technology from Omron.

"DA 4 is ideal for users who need scalability," said Fabio Perelli, product manager at Matrox. “They can start with a single smart camera then move to PCs with GigE Vision or USB3 Vision cameras when they need more processing power, faster frame rates or higher resolution — all with the same project and vision tools, just different deployment platforms."

About Matrox Design Assistant 4

DA 4 is the flowchart-based integrated development environment (IDE) that lets users easily create an application flowchart and HMI and take projects from concept to completion in record time, without the need for conventional programming. It will be available in Q2 2014 included with Matrox Iris GT smart cameras, pre-installed on specific SKUs of Matrox 4Sight GPm industrial computers and sold separately for use with generic PCs.
