Welcome to the Viziotix news. These are the latest updates about the company, events, new releases, new product features, and more.
Robotics Place is a cluster of companies in the robotics space with the mission to stimulate research, unify partners and develop solutions. Early discussions with Robotics Place were instrumental to us setting up Viziotix and we are excited to now be an official member. We look forward to collaborating with Robotics Place, and the members, to advance and optimize our computer-vision and barcode scanning software for robotics and automation applications.
See Robotics Place announcement for more information.
Software barcode scanning is now clearly a viable alternative to hardware barcode readers.
Up until recently, the core of any barcode scanning system has always been a fixed barcode scanner, handheld reader or barcode scan engine (module). These dedicated devices are often large and expensive. They are also difficult to integrate and network into more complex solutions.
We are talking to companies that have already adopted or have started to see the benefits of camera scanning with barcode software. The camera choice is huge, ranging from tiny, inexpensive camera modules (as found in smartphones), to USB cameras and up to standard industrial cameras. Unlike most barcode readers, these cameras are often based on the latest, high-resolution CMOS sensors and offer the ability to capture wide areas with large depths of field in low light – particularly useful when you need to scan pallet locations or capture many barcodes at the same time. Industrial cameras with 20MP resolution are readily available for instance.
Further, our contacts confirm that using these cameras usually means a significant cost saving over dedicated barcode readers and a better project ROI. As an example, we are powering the doks. innovation GmbH warehouse inventory robot and drone application (Inventairy - shown) which features an onboard high-resolution camera.
Let us know if you want to know more about using standard cameras with barcode software!
We are proud to announce the offical founding of Viziotix! The company is now created and registered as an SAS under French law. Let's get in touch! We can't wait to show you what Viziotix can do for your business and applications.
Our SDK now supports hardware acceleration on NVIDIA Cuda compatible GPUs. We are therefore fully compatible with NVIDIA Jetson architecture out-of-the-box. Just enable the CUDA acceleration option in our SDK and see the difference in speed! Check out our product page for latest info about the SDK.
Our SDK now includes the new "Nano-Scan" algorithm that decodes 1D barcodes at sub-pixel level. Thanks to this advanced detection capability, our decoder can now decode blurred, out-of-focus or low resolution images of 1D barcodes. The first version of Nano-Scan supports Code 39 and Code 128 symbologies. Check out our product page for latest info about the SDK.
Our team has created and implemented "Maxi-Scan" - our new algorithm for finding barcodes wherever they are in the field-of-view of your images. Thanks to Maxi-Scan, our SDK will scan every barcode whatever the image size or position of the barcodes in the image (corners, edges etc.). Check out our product page for latest info about the SDK.
After many months of dedicated work, our team is excited to make available the first version of our Barcode Scanning SDK for beta testing to selected customers. This first version includes support for UPC-EAN, Code 39, Code 128, Datamatrix, QR and PDF417. Check out our product page for latest info about the SDK.
