New VRmagic SDK offers image processing library
Blob segmentation is one of the various sophisticated algorithms for image processsing tasks included in VM_LIB.
February 10, 2012
With version 3.14 of its Software Development Kit,
VRmagic now offers a simple machine vision image processing library
for all the manufacturer’s camera models.
The library contains sophisticated algorithms for tasks such as object recognition, blob segmentation or barcode readers.
All code is optimized for the DSP of the DaVinci™ SoC for the intelligent cameras from VRmagic, but also runs on the ARM core
as well as PC platforms under Linux and Windows (x86).
“Many of our customers use open source algorithms to avoid license costs. However, these algorithms are not optimized for fast
performance on the DSP. With the VM_LIB, we now offer our customers a free basic image processing library for all camera models.
The particular strengths of the VM_LIB are in the area of object recognition,” says Oliver Menken, Sales and Marketing Manager at
Demo source codes for DSP and USB/PC are included in the SDK. The VM_LIB is available free of charge for non-commercial purposes
and for development of applications with the manufacturer’s components. License agreements are possible if it is wished to distribute
an application as part of a product.
The Software Development Kit from VRmagic allows developers to carry out generic interface programming that is compatible with all of
the manufacturer’s camera models. The clearly structured development environment provides users with control of all camera functions
as well as unrestricted access to the raw sensor data. It is compatible with all current Windows operating systems and Linux and
includes demonstration programs as well as freely usable source codes for different development platforms.
