Silver for IDS NXT rio & rome
Vision app-based industrial cameras from IDS receive VSD Innovators Award
For the fifth time, the American trade magazine "Vision Systems Design" has presented the Innovators Award to products and solutions in the field of image processing. Our vision app-based cameras IDS NXT rio & rome received "Silver" in the category "Embedded vision" and are thus considered one of the most innovative products in image processing. Criteria such as originality, innovation and use of a novel technology as well as the benefits for designers, system integrators and users and the effects on productivity are evaluated.
IDS NXT rio & rome, the new members of the vision app-based industrial camera family IDS NXT, convinced the jury of 14 experts with their innovative concept - AI-ready and perfectly suited for industrial use. All models of the IDS NXT platform are capable to solve a wide range of vision tasks. They are fully-fledged standard industrial cameras whose range of functions can be extended and modified by the user as required thanks to vision apps. With the new models IDS NXT rio and rome neural networks with self-learning algorithms can be integrated. Using the IDS Smart GenICam app, the configuration, control and results of the vision apps can also be made available via the camera's XML description file to any GenICam-compliant third-party application. Still, the devices remain full-fledged standard-compliant industrial cameras that can transfer image data at full GigE speed.
The award was presented by John Lewis, editor-in-chief, and Alan Bergstein, editor of Vision Systems Design, one of the leading magazines in the image processing industry. The latter explained: "This prestigious program allows Vision Systems Design to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and services in the vision and image processing industry. Our 2019 honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact in the industry."
IDS Managing Director Daniel Seiler accepted the award at the Automate trade show in Chicago: "I am very happy about this award because IDS NXT with AI is our future technology." And Jeremy Bergh, Managing Director of IDS North America, adds: "We believe that IDS NXT rio & rome will be an excellent addition to the industry and that their versatility will make them the right vision solution for many companies. The award is a confirmation of this strategy.” Last year, IDS received the VSD Innovators Award in Gold for the Ensenso X 3D camera series.
